Default Top 10 Underrated Carving Tools

As we put together our 10th anniversary issue, I asked Bob to add a bit of humor and come up with a Top 10 carving tool list. Unfortunately, we jam-packed so much into the issue, that we didn't have room to run it in print. It's very amusing and I'm sure you'll all get a kick out of it!

I think the list is probably quite accurate and I base this on the fact that Lori was probably the one that furnished the input on the proper use of CA. Don't you just hate it when people remember funny stories. Just having fun Lori!

If it wasn't so pathetically true, it would be funny. Heck, it was funny anyway. Thanks for sharing it--a good laugh, especially at your own expense from learning these sage bits of wisdom the hard way, is good for the soul.

Sheesh Bob_in_TN...a person has one (ok, two...ALRIGHT already - three) encounters of the stupid kind with CA and they never live it down...LOLOLOL...

Here's something REALLY scary...I don't buy this stuff by the tube, but by the BOTTLE. I figure it's more exciting to glue entire body parts rather than just fingers. It's a sight to behold seeing a stream of the stuff shooting out like a firehose....no wimpy drops for ME...

A student had it right recently...after gluing, I grabbed my bottle of accelerator and gave it a spray...he asked (very seriously, knowing my "history"), "What's that stuff...something to slow down the dry time?"

BobD did the lion's share of the list...I just had tiny bits to add....(as I'm looking at various skinless body parts....grin)
