  1. what level of detail?

    I believe the thing to do is go as far as you " dare" with the saw without ruining something you've spent hours on, especially smaller more delicate pieces which need intricate detail. If the finish for e.g. requires a sanded smooth look, then other tools it is .... but if you've pushed as far as you can with the saw, you will improve, get closer to your finished piece and as a happy bonus, have less sanding etc to do. Don't get me wrong, I like using my hands and chisels, it's a nice way to work but not to remove wood fast.

    They're ace, loads of character! I've been playing about with painting carvings for about a yr now. It can really add to a piece.
  11. best/favourite carving video?

    That is the best one I've seen too, it's awesome. Have you seen it in situ? It's like a castle type house backdrop and floodlit, perfect.
