Engraver is the skill used to smooth or engrave rocks, as well as to carve a fortification into a smoothed wall. The skill of the engraver does not affect the quality of smoothed tiles, but does affect the quality of engraved tiles. It is a good idea to train engravers by having them smooth large areas before engraving anything.
Engraving is a good way to build up the attributes: strength, agility and toughness. Smoothing improves your fortress, doesn't consume resources, doesn't create garbage and builds experience very quickly at the higher skill levels.
However, if engraving is a dwarf's highest skill, and that dwarf enters and completes a strange mood, then the dwarf will reach legendary status in engraving, instead of in one of the more valuable skills that are harder to train.
