I went to the woodworking show a few weeks ago and got a couple of different embellishing tools. I've been having some fun with them.

Thanks for looking!

So cool Jenny thanks for posting. This is interesting, at first glance it looked like an old fashion bottle opener.

Grin  At first I thought what a strange looking texture tool.  Then I realized that was the product not the tool. Fun stuff.

Not sure what they are called Glen.  Ron Brown had them at the Woodworking show.  One is a knurling type tool, one is a chatter tool (not getting along with that one very well yet) and the other is a rotary tool with a round bur type 'cutter'.  They are fun and not too hard to use.

Thanks, I keep looking at them and wondering if I could make the burr and knurl one.

Jenny,
Use the chatter tool like you would a gouge.  I found that a 45 degree angle and pull cut works well.  I didn't figure this out on my own but at the AAW symposium in Pittsburgh. It may have been the rockler booth but am not sure.  It was where I bought the thing.   Only works well on end grain.  Which reminds me I need to turn some end grain boxes.  The fun never stops.

Of course you can.  I have done it.   Highland Working in Atlanta area had a kit for the burr style tool in a recent flyer for a reasonable price and reduced hassle.  (It took several places to get all the parts and minimum order quantities came into play).
