Re: Is anyone building anything? *PIC*

A few weeks ago I was asking about convex shaves or planes that I could use to add texture to a project (a small cabinet). I was trying to avoid a lot of tedious hand tool work, but after a few experiments I decided that the appropriate texture for the project really needed to come from carving tools for an appropriate scale. I spent the day texturing the outside edge of these legs with a gouge. It won't be obvious from the front of the cabinet, but it will probably be the first place people place their hands. I'm hoping it will be a pleasant surprise. The edges were knocked down with a flap wheel, it feels really nice.
