Part One – Carving and Shaping Individual Feathers on Hawk Head – Laurie J. McNeil


The versatility of the Gesswein Power Hand 3 for wildfowl carving is demonstrated as Laurie powercarves individual feathers on a tupelo hawk head. Using a flame shaped diamond bit (3/32″ shaft) at 29,000 RPM, penciled in feathers are first defined using the side of the bit, then depth is achieved with the tip of the bit, followed by the contouring of the individual feathers. All of this is done with the same diamond bit.

The PH3 is the ultimate in micro-motor tools for powercarving. It offers great torque and precision control for the finest detailing and texturing of your wildfowl carving. The small size of the Gesswein PH3 Handpiece offers the ability to carve very fine detail effortlessly, it’s like drawing with a pencil, and it’s super quiet too.
