Protect ﬁngers and palms while rasping your next masterpiece with another tip from Ken Peterson. Cut the ﬁnger and thumbs (1 to 1-1/2 in. long) off an old leather glove—a right glove if you’re right-handed, left if you’re a lefty. Sheathe the end of the rasp with one of the leather ﬁngertips, then pull on the newly bobbed glove. It’ll cushion your palm without sacriﬁcing the ﬁnger control you need for effective sculpting with the rasp. Now you can really bear down on the workpiece for faster stock removal with nary a scratch or callus on your ﬁngers and palms.
