    Which Tool?

    I've been looking at a Turbocarver with great interest. I want a high speed tool for carving bone and antler as well as wood. I don't have a clue as to which is the best. Any thoughts?

    Some New Carvings And Some Bad Luck

    Michiel, Sorry to hear about the floods. Glad to hear that all are well. I like the antler work as I do some myself. What kind of tools do you use to work the Antler? I use a Dremel tool (rotary tool) with a carbide burr and finish with hand tools. Mostly I use an engravers tool for scraping as it hold an edge for a long time when used in antler. Thanks for sharing the photo's.

    As The Owl Hoots

    This Owl has been visiting me in the mornings when I go outside. Monday it watched me grill steaks at about 11:oo AM. It watched me load my lawn mower and string trimmer in the trailer on Wednesday and today I saw it fly into a tree at the rear of my house and I walked outside with the camera. It let me get to within 10 feet and snap all the photo's I wanted too. Seems strange that it isn't afraid of me.

    Carving A Cane

    Here is the cane I am making for myself. Made many for others, so now it is my turn. Please bear in mind that the carvings are not finished. First face is about 2 inches by 1 inch, next one is about 3 inches tall.

    Knife Handle.

    Don't know why it wouldn't post the photo. But here goes again.

    Knife Handle.

    Carved this piece of deer antler a while back. Did a lot of hand finish work using a graver as a scraper and some home made tools. The rough out was done with a Dremel tool and a carbide burr.

    Nickel Pendants

    Thanks for sharing the technique. I wondered what "Doming" was. Might just have to try this. So far my one attempt at engraving has been a Tsuba for a Tanto I made a few years ago.
