I feel I need a couple of these. I have no idea though where to start. Been several times in the past few projects they would of been useful … 

 

thoughts on what to start with or brands etc etc 

They're more pricey but, I have/like the Auirou Rasps.  I only have 4 or them but, they're all I've needed on any of my projects..  I'd suggest the 1/2 rounds and ensure that you have a modeler's rasp in the collection.

In reality, you could probably get away with 2..  The Modelers and one more aggressive.

Thanks! 

Curious on the modelers rasp ... do you have a recommendation on "grain"? I was thinking 7" since it is not the finest and might be a little quick to use. For the more aggressive would you go Auriou 12 inch Half Round Roughing Rasp - The Hog or one of the cabinet rasps with like 5-8 grain on it?

For the rougher ones, I'd suggest an 8 grain and a 12 grain.  For the modeler's rasp I bought the 13 grain.  These were the recommendations to build the sculpted rocker and I've just found them very useful ever since.

I'm with Kev on Auirou rasps and would start with the two he recommends as well as add Shinto rasp. Having said that I started using rasps on my sculpted bar stools. I added a Shinto and then two Auirou's like many tools as you use them you think ya know this shape or that grain would be better suited for this and now a few years later I think I have 8 plus like 6 riflers LOL
