    Joe,
    Hope you heal up soon and thanks for reminding me. This is why I use a carving vise. Even for small projects.

    Oops

    I've been trying to improve my carving skill for the ears. Draw, the carve. To layout the ear I've been using gouges of different numbers/curvature. I've been at it for about1-1/2 weeks, but Sunday the #5-11 wasn't as Sharpe as I wanted. To sharpen my gouges, I use a piece of basswood, which I carve the inside & outside of a gouge into the wood, add my stropping compound to the wood cutout & away I go.

    Well, I did have a channel made up for the #5-11, no big deal just add some more groves. Was about just doing some refining, when oops. 10 stitches later

    Guess I'll be practicing my ear improvement by just drawing for about 10days. Right now the pressure of trying to hold anything in my left handβˆ™βˆ™βˆ™βˆ™
