There are several methods that could be used to carve the handle, and these methods involve the use of many different tools. Obviously, the AE didn't use pounding balls, which were mainly used in the quarrying process.
(Re the inside: core-drill first, and enlarge second.)


NO 'magic sand' and the AE knew what types of sand to use/not use.

(Using common sense would be helpful here.)

Currently accepted Pyramide dates stand until proven otherwise.
Campbell's Chamber roof blocks are Tura Limestone until proven otherwise.
THE Cartouche in Campbell's Chamber IS Authentic, as are ALL other RC's Glyphs, until proven otherwise.
