Hello to all,

I found great pieces of Cherry tree trunks and I have already made a bowl using adze and hand tools to curve a bowl. It has come out OK. But I have to say it was rather time consuming and I wanted to buy 2 power tools to hollow the log and sand inside the the bowl using. If you can give me any recommendations on these items I really appreciate it. Else I have to stick with adze and a gauge.

Yes, that is what I looking.

1- Does angle grinder can have sand paper attached to them? Any recommendation on that would be great.
2- Which grade of Holly Galahead your recommend to start with?
