Soften Up

Some woods, such as walnut or oak, are really hard in nature, and can make it difficult to carve from. One woodworking tip is to soften up wood by applying de-natured alcohol on the surface. The alcohol will soften the wood and eventually evaporate over time, without leaving a residue. Also, the alcohol will not affect the wood grain like water sometimes can.
