  • My first foray into power carving

    Did this from a piece of ash I had . . . what a ton of fun. Bonus . . .my hands aren't aching . . . as has happened before when trying to work with a knife on harder woods. Those Saburr bits are a wonderful little piece of technology.

    Best of all . . . I've received two orders for dolphins (first time I've ever sold any carvings . . . kind of a rush for me). One customer requested walnut . . . so the rotary tool is going to be a big help

      Now you can buy some more Saburrs, I believe they just came out with a new finer grit/tooth. Great job on the dolphin.

        Excellent work and nicely done, as usual, Ron. I never tried any power carving but see the advantages.

          Thanks Merle . . .

          Hey Joe . . . I bought the fine-tooth burrs, and I'm glad I did. I may be ham-handed, but even these require a really light touch. Man . . . it's so cool to get a product that works even better than advertised. I have to laugh . . . as a single Saburr burr costs nearly as much as my rotary tool (a Wen . . . I think I paid $22 for it . . . and so far it's a champ).

          Thanks Bill . . . yeah . . . for pure enjoyment I prefer the knives and gouges on basswood, but harder woods don't agree with my hands. This opens up a whole lot of possibilities.
