Hey everybody, just wondering what type of bits and tools you use for detailing work? I'm just about finished with my first wood carving. I was cutting a load of hardwood for my dad on his property and had a crotched section of a big ash tree. I saw a squirrel and thought would be funny to carve it. i'm trying to get into the tight spots and don't have a carving bar yet. don't want invest a lot seeing i'm still in college. and advice would be cool.

I use 1/4in router bits in my die grinder. I have tried different things but find this works well for me. I have a dremel tool with a small cutter also I use it on very small projects eyes nose etc. I think the carbide type cutters work good but the rasp type fill up weigh crap as dose the little drum sander thingies.
Keep your saw in the Wood!

Dremels work well and is your cheapest option. A good die grinder is expensive as well as the bits.
