Deane Arnold’s custom made tools are great for carving 3D sculpted pumpkins, potatoes, and other types of squash and vegetables! Some are specifically for use with clay.
Each sculpting tool is one of a kind, no two are exactly alike. Deane makes them as needed to perform specific tasks. Most of these tools are made with handles that are reclaimed from used oak or hickory drum sticks.
The larger tool shafts are made from antique maple tool handles and are finished with tung oil. The tips are made from strips of ground stainless steel or jewelers sawblades. The brass ferrules are cut to size. The serrated raked tips are excellent for additional control in sculpting forms, while the pointed tips are for carving V-grooves with ease. New tools become available as they are made.
