Ed Twilbeck Posted March 14, 2014 Report Share Posted March 14, 2014 Started a new box top. Walnut with a dragon fly. So far I sized the top. Now I am carving away the background ,,, the top is 3/4 thick ,, carving about half thickness away. I used the knife to cut around the dragonfly and branch. Then with the reciprocating power chisel I removed most of the background down to the depth that I want. The reciprocating power tool helps to remove wood quickly, A Carver friend , says I am cheating when I use it, because it cut so fast, even in hard woods. I use it instead of the rotary tool which makes a lot of dust, this makes a lot of chips and shavings. If any one wants to see more , please let me know, and any comment are welcome.
