Microplane makes some rotary shapers that work very well. Also they have hand tools in all kinds of different angles and sizes that cut quickly and work very well. Also the really good thing, esp. my husband who uses them almost weekly, is that the tools DO NOT create dust, it is little shavings. Anyway, for an all around great tool, you definitely need the Microplane rotary shapers. They can be used on all woods hard or soft.
