    Hi Paul , Micro Motor Rotary is the Tool for cutting End Grain , you don't realize your cutting End Grain . I think the Extra RPM is what makes the difference . Before I do any Painting I Wet the whole piece and then apply the Stain , Wipe it Down the after it dries I paint . If not Staining try Wetting it before Painting , Paint while it's still Wet. You might be surprised. Thanks for Commenting. Merle

    Hi Bob, Micro Motor Rotary Tool the Tool I used , if I remember right you do your Carving in the Kitchen , if that's right I don't think your Wife will Approve , it makes a lot of Dust , must wear a Mask , but sure is nice. Changed my way of thinking when Carving. Merle

    Hi Joe , My new tool is Strong 202 Micro Motor Rotary Tool. Randy got me thinking along the Rotary Tool line and glad he did. Makes Detailing a lot easier. Thanks Joe. Merle

    I am also interested in the "end grain" tool End grain is my nemesis in smooth, "non-painted" carvings. Actually, even in painted as it changes the absorption of watercolor and I the disadvantages of using a seal coat far outweigh the advantages in my estimation.

    My last "new" tool was Ashley Isles "Hooked Skew". I have tried other brands but, so far, they simply have not achieved the curvature and angle of the AI tool.

    Beautiful work as always, Merle! The paint and red mahogany finish really make it pop! It looks like the white collar might be Corian, a popular counter top material. Would also like to here more about your new end grain tool.

    A real beauty Merle, but I am really waiting for the head up one. Tom

    the white is possibly Corian.

    Hi Randy , the top of his Head is End Grain but wasn't a problem because of my new Tool. I'm sold on it . Didn't even realize it was end Grain when Detailing. The White is Counter Top Material and can't remember it's name . Thanks Randy . Merle
