Good Day, A beginner within the stone carvers world 11 months strong and loving every second of it. I couldnt find a job, and needed a career change bad. I decided to cold call a studio in BARRE VT and have been graciously given an opportunity to learn how the masters do it. I only use chisels saw blades and tons of brain power and yeARS of physical labor has allowed me to continue through the process to create granite sculptures and reliefs well I wil not bore you all any longer. Nice work everone. thanks for the opportunity to post. D

I recommend using a wooden mallet for carving Oamaru stone.
Woodworking chisels are perfectly fine for carving with Oamaru stone.
This is the best sealer that I could find on Amazon that I would consider to be suitible for Oamaru Stone
Scissor Lift Trolly
Mobile Tool Box
Although the tools below are sold through Amazon. They are the same as the stone carving tools that I personally recommend to my students for carving with Oamaru stone.
These benches are height adjustable which makes them perfect for stone carving. I own the Ryobi workbench and love it, but unfortunatlly it is only sold through Amazon's UK store for people that are wanting to buy it online.
Stanley: Surform Shaver
This is a must-have tool for shaping large areas of Oamaru stone
These are smaller files that are designed for the parts of your sculpture that are difficult to get at. They are also an essential set of tools
Crosscut Hand Saw
This type of crosscut hand saw is my recommendation for cutting Oamaru stone
A very handy saw. Mosty used for sawing after a hole after it has been drilled into the stone.
