Barbara, in your original post about this method of carving, it
seemed you said a rounded bull nosed chisel wouldn't work or did I
misunderstand you? I thought all bull nosed chisels were somewhat
rounded at the edges, so wouldn't that make it the wrong kind to use
for the Steiner method of carving lines?
