View Full Version : Touching up centerline letters after carving

12-03-2014, 05:59 PM
I had an issue with a sled I used that I made some time ago in conjunction with a slightly thinner piece of wood - end result was my 60 degree V bit carve didn't go deep enough in the center of the font along a curve. What I'm getting at is has anyone had any experience with touching centerline up by hand after a carving? It's so minuscule I'd hate to waste the piece, then again I'd hate to destroy it trying to fix it. Started with a dremel, afraid of butchering it too much. Any techniques would be appreciated.

How about a V shaped carving gouge? The dremel probably won't do a decent job unless you get a V bit for it.

You mean like the hand carving tools correct? I just broke out my set, nothing small enough except for my sharp straight chisel tip thats really thin. This may work but it will be tedious.. wish me luck. Any other ideas feel free to chime in!

You could save it as a pattern and touch it up in Sculptor or the pattern editor but, the carving time would be increased dramatically.
