    They say,... do not sand until your finish that ... it is hard on the tools. Me I sand.....I need to see the shape of item so I can see what next needs to be shaped or cut....the more the detail, the more I sand. I never yet hurt my tools...it is rocks and metal in the wood ....that has made chips in my tools.

    gee no answers for you i will try and cooperate to give you some feedback a lot of folks wont carve after sanding becaue they are afraid bits of the sand will get in thewood and dull the knife, personally I dont worry about it. I just had a piece of basswood tha was really rough and flaky and I want to put a intricate kind of pattern in it, it was like chip carving and sanded it all first to get a really smooth clear finish because, once I carved it I couldnt sand it anymore unless I wanted to recarve it, or touch it up. that migh be what he is referring to. Once you have a chip carved pattern in your wood, it would be heartbreaking to sand all those sharp edges off tha you worked so hard o maintain. just my two cents.
