Your really a Luddite arn't you? LOL -- that's OK, I understand, I like doing thing by hand too, but I love my power tools!Rad, I'm probably nuts and I'm old enough it doesn't bother me. When I began learning stone sculpture, I opted to learn the way the Greeks and Romans did it, no power equipment. To the extent I can with my limited skills, I'd like to attempt the same and do it as my Granddad would, a WWI veteran and a cabinet maket. He had no power tools.
I will take your recommendation if I can't figure out an old-fashioned approach. But your assist is most appreciated!
