ELFY-A-250


The Decorating Elf Tool

The Decorating Elf... The most versatile texturing tool available and so simple to use. Cuts wood - side & end grain, acrylics, alternative ivory, bone, antler and pewter. Use it on concave, flat and convex surfaces.

The “Decorating Elf” comes with an 8mm (5/16”) ball cutter made from High Speed Steel.
An important feature is the collar on the shank; it is there so that the brass body does not interfere with whatever you are decorating.
Also in the pack is a Natural Hair Burnishing Brush, which is a key component in producing a clean and crisp pattern.  There is no need to use abrasive materials (the Instruction Sheet and DVD tell you how). The brush not only cleans and removes fibres but also burnishes the surface – ready to take the finish of your choice.

bud 200

Bud Cutter HS 904


This cutter, with its flame-like section, allows you to present it in many more positions than with the ball-end cutter. This and the cylinder cutters give the most decorating options when working on side grain work. The shape allows you to create smaller and wider decorative patterns.

$13.50 ea

 

Cylinder 200

Cylinder Cutter HS 903


This cutter is capable of creating pinpoint indents through to spiralling arcs on the work. The cutter can be used on the side, the outer edge of the top face, and also by angling the top face against the work. You do not have to hold the cutter in one position - you can run or arc the cutter across the work to create a radiating pattern - which either arcs into the centre or out to the outer rim of the piece you are working on.

elf+8-A-200

Negative-Rake Fine Point Tool

This HSS point tool has an elongated tip and each face of the tip is concaved. It is designed to create a fine incised line. It shears/peels off the wood beautifully and the cuts are crisp. It is also capable of making shearing cuts across the wood rather than just be pushed into it. I used it to create boundaries at the outer limits of the decorated work. This effectively contains the decoration and creates a focal point. The tool was a dream to use.

 

$28.50 ea

elf+7a 200

Negative-Rake Coving Tool

This is effectively a HSS negative-rake scraper with a fingernail-profile on the end. The top face is concave and it can cut be used as a push-in profiling tool, or for a more efficient cut. It can also be used to cut with the grain to cream hollows, coves, depressions and so on.
Into these shapes one can feed the cutters to create the pattern required. For sharpening, with each of the tools I found it easiest to create a disc of MDF the same radius as the arc on the cutting edges and then I mounted this on a faceplate. Simply apply sharpening paste to the outer edge and hone the blades with the disc running away from the cutting edge.
