I used a 4” grinder with a sanding disc. need to find a quicker-less dusty way to remove the bulk of wood.

Very nice job. Did you use multiple wood stains or does it just look that way on the photo? I plan to make on of these for my nieces before next Christmas. I hope mine turns out as nice as yours!

Dan, The wood is pine 2X’s as this was a proof of consept project. I stained it with a medium oak stain with out sealing the wood, then used a spray varnish.

Regarding reducing dust – but not woodchips – have you looked at the Arbortech Woodcarver PRO-4 ?

The picture shows the cutter in a grinder, but is sold separately over here, by Axminster for example.

Oh! and Wooddolph ! Wonderful! I love puns.
