Use a rasp for rounding edges and curves. Traditional rasps have a series of abrasive blades, varying in coarseness. Modern rasps, like these, have holes punched across the entire surface of the blade. Each hole has a sharpened edge that shaves off layers of wood. The two-handed rasp works with a pulling and pushing action. The one-handed rasp has a cutting area similar to its two-handed counterpart.
