I've been studying - always causes trouble, but I'm trying not to make EVERY possible mistake and learn from others, .. so I've been studying how people carve, reading old woodworking magazines, books, youtube, etc... I want to carve the legs for the piano from The Scale Cabinetmaker Vol 12 no. 2 and keep going back to wanting to use a benchdog to hold the piece I am working on... but a normal life size bench dog would be so heavy for a 1/12th scale mini leg. Jim Dorsett was using a sandwich approach, but I would really like to carve the legs. https://dpllconline.com/product/v12-i2-the-scale-cabinetmaker-a-journal-for-miniaturists How do you hold pieces so you can carve the details? if feels awkward holding the piece in my hand to carve, and I am fond of my hands and don't want to stab myself with carving chisels.
