  11. what level of detail?

    Hi ,just find your own way some things will be mostly saw work but others will be alot of power tool work it depends what you are carving ,owls,bears its mostly the saw but say a castle , with ivy growing up it there will be alot of power tool work, whatever gets you where you want to be when the piece is done , I use all sorts from saws, to dremils and chisels the one I would be lost without is my filling sandet , just work with what makes it a happy thing to do , have a go with other peoples power tools if you like what they do then go get one of your own I may not use my dremal for 3/4 months but still glad I have it you would be welcome to come and have a go with whatever powertools I have if you want to check out some diffrent kit just P M me Cheers Mark
