    Very sorry to hear this, condolences to you and your family
  7. what level of detail?

    That's interesting, I started off many years back with mallet and chisels but switched to saws because of time. What would take a full day carving traditionally will only take an hour or two with saws. I just couldn't compete on price with edge tools. Still nice to work them when needed though 👍
  8. what level of detail?

    I use a wide variety of tools, but I normally do everything with saws 95% minimum. Sometimes you need another tool but I would recommend pushing yourself with just your saws as much as possible. A lot of novice carvers fall into the trap of carving a bit, then sanding with grinder, then reworking with saw, then grinding again etc.

    Thanks Stubby, yes it is a bit ambiguous, if the buyer thinks it's a wolf then it's a wolf 😉
