Of Folklore And Fairy Tales by psychosculptor Of Folklore And Fairy Tales by psychosculptor

Carved into an old Maple wood rolling pin. The handles were carved into finials free hand (without a lathe). Much of the details were carved with hand tools and a lot of the sanding was done by hand as well. 12/17/16

Some Foredom to rough out, remove bulk and some shaping. Mainly details were done with knives. Knives were also used as scrapers to finish small tight areas. I used various sized and shaped bits with Foredom to shape the finials as I manually turned opposite handle.

I was thinking about trying some basic woodcarving myself. Is foredom a good tool for novices, and is it better to start with that rather than hand tools?  I can imagine the hand tools are very sharp and dangerous- or the proper tools are that way.

Sorry for the late rely. I don't sign into DeviantArt often. 
I think the Foredom is a great tool for anyone but also expensive. If you're just starting out and don't want the investment, the Dremel is a good starter tool for the fraction of the price. You still have to invest in the carving bits which can get expensive. Some of the pricey burrs are Kutzall, Saburr and Typhoon.  I prefer Typhoon.

All kinds of shapes and sizes of small cutting burrs can be found at Rio Grande Jewelry Supplies for the best prices. The diamond and ruby burrs can be costly as well. The type of burrs used depends on the type of wood being carved.

Hand tools are actually better for softer woods. I don't like carving soft wood and yes, hand tools are more dangerous. I have the scar to prove it.
Good luck and enjoy!

Sorry for my late reply. I thank you kindly for taking time out of your day to give me some advice. Woodcarving always fascinated me- possibly because the supply is everywhere- and organic.  Thanks again, you do amazing work.

Woman, you are just too damn good.  So just how many psychologists does your psychologist have? I think I've fainted. I think I've fainted.
