Alright some of the tools that I use in working
with wood is believe it or not the chainsaw. This one has a fairly good size blade, because
that’s the one I use to cut through the log, and sometimes down the length of the log.
And then I have this special one here, which has a special point on it. This goes down
to the size of a quarter, and this is how I do some of my fine carving. This actually
gives me a lot of texture when I’m working on the piece. And then I have a miniature
grinder, which is called a Dremel. And you take this little piece here, and that’s what
I would do to make fine, you know like very fine cuts and feathers and things like that.
Because one of the pieces I’ll show you at some point, I’m working on an eagle right
now. A person releasing an eagle. And then we have the sanders, we have the sanders,
you have to get the a lot of times I want the surface to be smooth, especially the faces,
because I put gold leaf on the faces, so I can get that reflection that I want for the
people to view when they see it. And then sometimes we have to use this Sawzall, sometimes
we do have to use chisels. Because I can’t really get at what I need to get at without
using a chisel.
