    Re: Sanding

    As one who often flouts convention, I will admit to using sandpaper during the carving process. Since I strop my knife and tools often during carving anyway I have never noticed any dulling.

    Yes, I agree it's best to wait til the carving is finished before taking sandpaper to it. If I need to use something to 'clean up' an area before the carving is finished, I'll use tiny chisels or even a riffler. Sanding just gets grit in the way of your chisels...and then you spend much more time getting your chisels sharp again and less time carving :-)

    Re: Sanding

    I learned the proper use of sandpaper from Harold Enlow of Dogpatch, Arkansas.
    I keep my tools in a wooden cigar box with a 2x2 inch square sheet of sandpaper. This way, as my tools rattle around in the box, they sharpen themselves.

    Sanding

    I have only been carving for a few months and enjoying it very much. I have gotten conflicting advice from 2 VERY experienced carvers regarding sanding a project before the carving is complete. One says it's fine and the other says that it dulls the carving tools quickly and that I should only do that when I am done carving. ??? ??? ???
