I some times use a rotary tool and a sanding drum to carve the animals for the Noah's Arks that I make. Some will say, "no! you don't carve them, you GRIND them". To those who say this, I'll not get into an argument. But I am carving; so there.
I am preparing a tutorial slide presentation of how I use the rotary tool (Dremel) to carve a Cheetah. Maybe I'll title it THE 5 MINUTE CHEETAH. I'll post it when it's completed. Yep! I said 5 minutes; but I may have to change it to.........3 minutes. Greed made me learn to do the animals real fast. Several years ago I was given the opportunity to make 5 Noah's Arks with 18 pairs of animals each. The only trouble was that the request was made at Thanksgiving, and the arks had to be done in time for Christmas. The requester was the wife of a well known music celebrity, and the prices were, well they were good. I couldn't say no! So, I learned to use the rotary tool very quickly.
