Topic tags/keywords: question

Srry if this has been asked before, but how are you guys carving these boxes? I assume you are using an angle grinder of some sort, or a huge spindle sander.

If using an angle grinder, which grit wheel are you using?

Angle grinders, hand tools, dremels, chain saws it all depends on how much you have to hog out. I don’t do a lot of carving but i am sure there are a few others that can help with grits and tools. A pic or project you are interested in might help getting some pointers.

Its they style of greg the cajun box maker that im interested in. Ipthat flowing water feel.

I have a cut off of a walnut 6/4 slab that has a part of the bark side attached, but missing the bark, it would make a great floating shelf if i just exagerrate that area by grinding away some material in that wave tyoe aesthetic. I assumed an angle grinder would be best, but wondered which wheel to use for initial shaping. Whichever one i grabbed was used on metal before and just burnt the wood instead of removing material.
