It's great for hand carving too Frank. Do wear good respiratory protection while you are working with it. It ended one of my uncle's logging career. He was around 60 when it finally caught up to him. He couldn't go from the living room to the bathroom without stopping to catch his breath. His exposure was 1000's of times what the average person would get but it affects every one differently just like peanuts do.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
