If YOU can self teach pave’ or channel set stones…good luck! I had
a mentor/teacher for 6 years to teach me to do these very same
things. Then I did only 9 more years to improve on these methods. No
offence, “self teaching” is not the answer, you cannot ask a book
questions. Neither can a book reply if you need personal assistance.
“Thou shalt not be intimidated by the unknown”. Once you learn by
someone else, who is there with you, shall you learn…Picking
gravers, grinding and shaping them will only allow you to be the
best possible setter…but you should have someone to guide you.
