cringe at using powered chisels to carve work. Sometimes mere mortals must resort to work arounds when a peoject calls out for a carved feature but as a mortal not having the tools and experience of a classic carver, power comes into play.

Maybe using a power carver might nudge you to a new area of our crafts passion. Evolving happens. :roll:

I've been told that once the project is on display or in use, nobody is going to ask what tools you used to create it! I've seen many a fine turned bowls that were completed using only scraping tools, while some so-called purists consider scraper a four letter word. (grin)
