I think I am missing something. I have been going through the letters course and have gotten to the Old English font. When you start the first cuts, which is the inner top portion of the “S” you point out short grain, which I get, but isn’t the other corner also short grain? Is there a reason one would be better to start with than the other or was it just we needed a place to start? Or am I misunderstanding the other is not actually short grain?
Got it finally. I read it a few times and got out my handy dandy Chip Carving Essentials book for a reference. Then I had one of the aha moments where it all made sense. Thanks for covering that, it really was helpful!
