Protect ngers and palms while rasping your next masterpiece with another tip from Ken Peterson. Cut the nger and thumbs (1 to 1-1/2 in. long) off an old leather glovea right glove if youre right-handed, left if youre a lefty. Sheathe the end of the rasp with one of the leather ngertips, then pull on the newly bobbed glove. Itll cushion your palm without sacricing the nger 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 ngers and palms.
