Well I'm not a pro at carving, but there are other methods of sculpting. Dremel tools with carving bits and sanding with a drum sander/ intarsia/ CNC if you're rich. but yeah, Thats cool! I wish I could carve. Nice work!
Of course, but nothing beats a razor sharp blade cut. I do use a dremel occasionnaly for rough digging work, but I find it a bit messy and dusty and avoid it as much a possible. And CNC is like someone else doing the job... I'd just miss the whole pleasure of carving...
Thanks! I actually often find it more difficult with power tools. Easy to mess up a piece. It just goes faster and makes straight lines, but I avoid them when possible... and they do so much nasty dust!
Your carvings are pretty intense mate, love the 'Heroet' one but this is awesome too. Do you use a router or any other power tools to get the depth or do you just use chisels and gouges? Just wondering because it looks too level to be done by eye and hand.
