Is reshaping the pile limited to hand tools or can power tools be used? Electric drills are mentioned as acceptable - by the same token, we would like to use other wood shaping devices to reshape the pile if permissible.

You will bring the pile in its final form with you at the Captains’ Meeting. You can use any tools (power, hand, etc.) when you fabricate your pile. You will not be allowed to reshape your pile after the Captains’ meeting.
