So, the hands in this project were done on my CNC. The text on the laser. Frame and prep with other tools in the shop. While I do carve, you can see that in some of my other projects, I love the immediate gratification this brought to me while I had a few hours of free time in the shop. I made this, as I do many of my projects, as a gift and the recipient loves it.

So, before the debate begins again, I have a bunch of tools. I use them all and have for a very long time. I will never abandon my hand tools, or carving in general. Neither will I prevent myself the joy of producing a gift for a friend in a fraction of the time.

So, Hand Rub finish or HVLP?
