  1. beautiful work here and appreciated help, thanks everyone!
  2. Not knowing where to drop this question, I thought in "techniques - how to" would be closest to my point: how do you reduce the danger of work related damage? I carve (Proxon & smaller "dentist" type power tools) wood, bone, antler, alabaster, marble. Small statues (max 25 cm tall) or pendant/small size sculptures that can be worn. And I love working details! The smaller ones work better if I hold them in my hand and rotate them, while working. I hold them tight and before long, I got the tendon of my left thumb really hurting.

I mean: I bought at the market 2 saber-tooth tiger fangs (legal and all). Beautiful material but when I cut them open, “sand” (the pulp?) came out and they were hollow. I hoped they’d be more compact.
