Power Tools Revolutionise Woodcarving

In recent years, the use of power tools has been revolutionising woodcarving. The power and efficiency of these tools allows wood enthusiasts to carve larger and more complex projects in less time, while still achieving a high level of detail. However, due to the inherent dangers of using chainsaws and similar aggressive power tools, this type of woodcarving is not for the fainthearted. Using Arbortech carving discs, available from leading tool supplier The ToolPost (, is a safer way to achieve success in the art of power carving, and these discs bring the joys of power carving to a wider audience of woodcarvers and woodturners.

There's a good reason why power carving has been attracting an ever-increasing following of fans from the world of woodcarving and woodturning. Power tools create textured surfaces and sculpted edges which can elevate a piece from the mundane to a work of art. So it's not surprising that the invention of a safer power tool was met with great enthusiasm. Arbortech carving kits include a depth limiter which mitigates the damage the tool can wage if an accident did happen, a contributing factor to Arbortech being awarded the respected German seal of safety.

The Arbortech Pro-4 Woodcarver Kit safely turns a 4" or 4 1/2" (100mm or 115mm) angle grinder into a powerful carving and shaping machine, while the Mini Grinder Kit provides the same quality of grinding for work of more limited size or with greater detail. Arbortech also supplies TCT-tipped blades to increase edge life when carving harder materials. The ToolPost carries a wide range of Arbotech Power Carving Equipment, Mini Power Carving Equipment and packs of the Mini Abrasive Disc System, helping more wood enthusiasts to safely discover the revolutionary benefits of using power tools.
