Basswood is what you want.  All carvers, knife or machine, prefer it.  Just google basswood supply.  Watch the shipping fees as they differ widely.  Dennis

I think Cedar ,Pine and Redwood are better options for wood carving.

Redwood is indeed one of the best wood you can use for wood carving.

I really want to get into carving things out of wood, but I have no where to start! I don't want to do anything fancy or big just like a small sculpture or something. Are there any specific tools or anything that I should use or should I just get like a carving knife and some wood from a craft store? Any advice would help!

Hi this is Beth from Dremel Customer Service.  You've come to the right place to do your carving.  We have MANY hobbyist using this tool to do this exact type of work.  In fact, I'm hoping that some will jump in to give you their sound advise.  They use both our corded and cordless tool (matter of choice), however, remember, if you are using a cordless and the battery stops, then you have to take that down time to recharge it.  Some of the cordless do not allow you to put attachments on them (*for more info on this, give us a call, any representative can instruct you further).  What I would suggest is using our Flex Shaft 225-01, which takes the weight of the tool off of your hand and it allows you to reach and control really good with the bit on the end of it.  (Kind of like using a pencil!).  For more information, visit our website with the "Rotary Tool and Attachments and Accessories", or call our Dremel Customer Service Department on the toll free phone number at 1-800-437-3635, Monday-Friday, 7 am - 6 pm, CST.  Thanks for the question!!!
