Here's a Mahogany Martin neck carved detail.
A simpler design with less small details would have made this easier...but extra time and being careful did the job just fine. This would have been a little easier in Walnut or Maple.
Spanish Cedar classical necks need to have simple, less detailed designs.

Its a sharp little tool that kinda looks like a metal pencil. you usually use it to drive finish nails below the suface without marring the surface.
