Actually Ron, I use whatever tool will do the job… especially if it’s faster. Time is my enemy. Yes I do use a foredom (flexible shaft)grinder for an awful lot of my work….. but I still do hand work too to a great degree. I refuse to give up the hand work entirely. As I have gotten older, it has become more and more dificult physically. I do some roughing out on the band saw, and belt sander as well. I may just put this in my blog, as others probably are also wondering. Thanks. Dave

Hi Dave!

Whichever way you do it, it’s the final results that count.

I’d like to see all of your creations on your Lumberjocks.

This is an ideal place to display carvings, with being able to show 3 views of each.

I would love to see a video of you working if possible. Thank you for sharing your God given talents.

This would be a wonderful idea. Even though I could never, in my wildest dreams, carve, for example. I still appreciate the processes via which other woodworkers create their projects.

I’d really enjoy watching a video on carving, power or otherwise. I am really impressed by people who can carve well.

Have your say...
