Carving comments

  • Sugar maple discourages the most accomplished carvers, but it does take very fine detail. Here's how to handle it:
  • Even a shallow gouge bevel of 15-20 erodes fast in this wood. To add edge longevity, grind a slight (10) bevel on the backside of the gouge tip.
  • Power carvers should start with medium-cut burrs, then follow with finer ones. Coarse-cutting burrs chip the wood.
