  • Carving Tool

    On many of the band saw boxes I make, I need to do some carving. I have been using chisels and my pocket knife, but I thought I would order a couple or maybe only one carving tool. Can anyone give me pointers on what I should be looking for...

    I'd suggest you check out Fox Chapel's Wood Carving forum at

    Woodcarving Illustrated Message Board.

    There are several topics there about selecting tools for exactly what you are seeking to do, and the folks there are just as friendly and helpful as our scroll saw folks. Give it a try.

      I do some carving on my intarsia and inlay projects. I find I use about three, of the 20+ gouges I have, the most. You do not need a whole set of gouges. I now have a "Mastercarver" set with a mini jackhammer that makes the carving easier. It comes with just a few gouges. I use the "V" tool the most.
