Re: tales from the selectively stingy

Well, I have a bit of an oppositional ...well, issue. So now I'm going to have to buck the historical trend.

There may be utility to sanding, but it is seriously lacking in the stimulation department (at one point, sanding cherry caused me to have an asthmatic response, too, but laying off of sanding seems to have made that subside). I'd do it if it didn't feel so dumb, though.

I'll just have to cherry pick literature where I can find it, like the Hasluck section where the author describes taking the life right out of a carving by sanding it.
