    Thanks Randy, I think leaves add a nice touch to many forms of carving: In all of these examples the leaves fill spaces in areas difficult to do with geometric chip carving.

    Hi Bill. I cut up a clear gallon plastic water bottle then place it on a picture or drawing and trace what I want to make a pattren of with a fine marker. I cut it out with a box cutter or a old small spear shape woodburning nib. Both take a little practice. The patterns can rap to fit the curve of the stick.

    The plastic bottle templates are brilliant. Different size bottles,
    different curves built in, easy to hold against the stick.
    I will be doing that for matching eyes.

    The OZ will deliver Up 40,000 rpms and has more torque. But it is a big investment. It save me time I and is more versatile And I use it for a number of different activities.

    Have you got leaf patterns to trace or do you freehand it all?
