Sometimes you do it the way you do because it is satisfying to you, not the fastest not the most convenient but it just how you feel like doing it. . If I were doing it for a customer I might use faster tools or more efficient means but if I am doing it for myself, I might just take the time it takes to whittle away at it. My wife sometimes does things around the house that I don't always understand & when I ask her about it she says it makes her happy. Who am I to judge that ?
