Carving a mouse

 1.   The tools necessary for this carving, are a hacksaw blade with one end wrapped in duct tape to act as a handle.

The teeth of the saw blade should always point away from the handle.

You will also need a file of some type, or a coarse piece of sandpaper.

For the sanding you will require several grades of silicon carbide waterproof paper, 240 and 600 grits will do.

 2. The piece of soapstone is 1 ½" x 1 ½" x 2 ½" .

With the hacksaw blade, cut the stone to the shape as shown in the side veil above and on the left.
