« Part 1: Reverie Harp Kit, Off to a pretty good start! Part 2 of "REVERIE HARP!" a new style of Harp from a kit series Part 3: Making some carving tools. »

I spent about 3 1/2 hours carving out the background,

establishing the approximate depth to the relief.


Barb was busy taking pictures during the process.

The Mahogany is real easy carving, but it may be a little brittle when I start carving the details.

That remains to be seen.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here’s a video slideshow of the progression.

Hey Dick & Barb
Very well done as usual I can’t believe you got all that done in only 3 1/2 hours. I was wondering what the black metal looking post was close to the beginning of the slide show. Thanks for this great post.

Hey Jim, You’re real observant, That’s a fluorescent desk lamp.

Jerry, Thanks,
She told me that an old fellow in Walmart told her the same thing about her hat.

I better keep an eye on her from now on.<(;O}#

I’m going to try, & get the slideshow to work better, it’s kind of jerky.

Boy Dick, for some reason, I think it was the song, but my buddies dad owned the local newspaper and had a sign hanging up as you walked into the office that read, ” six munz ago I cudnt even spel printer now I are one! But you did an outstanding tutorial and I’m breaking out the wood chisels and I’m taking a crack at it by gum. Can’t do no more than screw up a board. I sure would like to carve like you can and you make it look so damn easy, thanks for the lesson. I got to lay this baby down somewhere!

Looking great Dick. If you’d stuck those chisels in your toe’s and played the music. It would have been all done.

Dick – Great looking job. I may have to try one after I see how yours turns out.

cabinetmaster – That song is called Yakety Sax. You can find about it here.

Hi Dick and Barb:
You couldn’t have picked better music than my favorite guy CHET. This is a fantastic video, and a very well done job!!! I love it! As a fellow woodcarver, I probably appreciate this more than anyone. I am assuming that the table you are working on, is covered with some kind of non slip material ? I don’t remember seeing any clamps holding the project down so you can work on it ?
Keep it going ! I wish I knew how to do things like that on my PC.
“Till the next show
Your fellow L J….....Dave
PS Think I’ll save this in my woodcarving file…...Thanks for a great Post!!!!

Hi Karson,
It’s kind of tough, when you have your boots on.

Gary! Thanks for the info, I didn’t know that, but if you read farther down the page, Guitarist Chet Atkins recorded a variant version of “Yakety Sax” in 1965 called “Yakety Axe”. Atkins’ version used a similar tempo and showcased his country guitar picking style in place of a saxophone. The title change referred to the colloquial term for an electric guitar as an “axe”.

Jim! You’re still very observant for an old geezer.

Hi Dave,
The pad you mentioned is a safety mat. I had bought some for my shop floor, but I didn’t care for

the in my shop. Yesterday I got the bright idea of using one for a non slip pad,

& it works great. I thought it may be too soft. Look for them in one of the big box stores.

I think I bought mine at Sam’s Club.

Thank you Dan, & Andy!
Barb will be taking pictures, so at least you’ll get a slideshow.

I just upgraded the images in the slideshow, but I couldn’t use music.

You can also view them full page now, & stop & go at your own speed.
