    Hi Joe, if you are Comfortable wearing Gloves while Power Carving by all means wear them . What I'm saying it is a Bad Practice and would not recommend to any Power Carver to wear them. This is what I've been taught in the Industry and has been my practice . Just my 2 cents input . Merle

    Not talking about cloth-leather is what is needed

    Hi Claude , I hope your right and it finishes up Well. Gloves with Power Carving seems to become an Opinion Maker . None in my little Class. Merle

    Should be a nice looking piece when finished. I think all-leather gloves would be good, as the machinery is less likely to grab them than cloth or (worse!!) kevlar...

    Hi Tinwood, Nope no Gloves when operating Machinery . That's a Safety Policy in Factories , to many People get injured by wearing Gloves and Running Machinery . Don't do it, ask Kathy Motels ' I'll bet she doesn't wear Gloves anymore. Thanks Buddy for Commenting . Merle

    Looks like a fun project, Merle. You and your daughter should have a good time together on that one.

    Hi Wayne , I feel my Mother is responsible for both Daughters liking Crafts. They were doing Ceramics when they were 10 and 11 yrs, Old. Still have some of those pieces sitting around . Thanks Wayne. Merle

    Hi Bob, she has done many different Crafts , Ceramics , Stain Glass , Doll Making , and now Woodcarving. Our first Session lasted 3 hrs. and we were surprised at the Time , it went so fast. She has a lot to Draw from with her Past Experience. It will be a Journey we will both Enjoy. Thanks Bob

    Great idea Merle, I wish one of my daughter's would show an interest in woodcarving, but alas no such luck.
