    Tried and true

    I make Windsor chairs which require scroll carvings on the crest rails and carved knuckles on the arms. The carving is usually in oak so the carving tools need to be sharp and tough. Even though these tools don't seem made for mallet use, they will stand up. I've gradually accumulated all the different sweeps I need.
