Brandy, you do very nice work; welcome to Lumberjocks. I would also like to see pictures of your shop – especially your carving tools.

Tools, hmmm, I’ll try to post a pic eventually but I can list most of them if that will help. I use swiss gouges, a draw knife, and box knives for hand carving. I also have a nice selection of dremmels thanks to my family giving me several. I use a IV bag hanger for my dremmel…works great with the extender arm on the dremmel. Have a band saw but rarely use it but it’s handy when I need to make a quick cut. For the medium size pieces I use a jigsaw when the band saw won’t do the job. For the bigger pieces I use a stihl 180 with a 14” pico bar (the original bar and chain work great but don’t buy the auto adjuster on the bar it stinks) then I have a Huskavarna 235 and that has my dime bar on it. Then I use angle grinders. a flap sander, palm sander and a straight grinder not sure what the technical name is for that. OH and one of my favorite little tools when I have a tight spot is a 1/2” belt sander. It can get into all the little tight spots and works great for faces and other touchy places. Hopefully this fall will get to purchase a big boy stihl 271 I think is the one I want. I’m ready for it just have to gather up the funds. Need it to get the big hunks of wood off faster and more efficiently.

Brandy, these are some good looking carvings. I have always had a great deal of respect and admiration for those who have been gifted with the ability to carve and bring out what is hidden beneath the surface of the wood. Thanks for sharing.

Let me welcome you to LJs as well. It is good to have you on board as a member of the group.
