The quilt class that I co-teach makes several group quilts each class cycle. These group quilts are raffled off to benefit the Senior Center. This is my classes latest raffle quilt. It's a king size.

This gem is complete. Even has a bobbin case and drive belt. An original manual was in one of the drawers, but is pretty torn up. Before I refinish the cabinet I'll clean the machine and try to do some stitching. It's a NEW HOME. Don't know how old, but I'd say it's older than I am anyway. I am planning on using the machine to quilt smaller quilt tops.

Here's my answer. This is power carving with a low rpm hand held drum sander. A good leather glove on the hand holding the wood and a 3/8 inch sanding drum chucked up and we're off to the races.
The first project was the cow. The Cheetah's were the second. I provided the blank, and carved right along with my "student". I'd make a "cut" in my piece, and she would make the same cut in her piece.
All in all, a very successful session.
