A pressurized board steamer you can make quickly

04-05-2012 10:27 PM by shipwright | 12 comments »

This entry was prompted by this forum topic. I thought it would be of interest to look at a different kind of steamer that is capable of creating more, hotter steam than the average atmospheric pressure ones that are limited to something around 212 deg. F and less at altitude. I don’t have access to either my rusty (but still trusty) old steamer right now or the photo of it that I know I have at home so I did a quick 2D of it in sketchup. Several years ago I designed this one to be p...

shaped the acorns a bit more, and have come to agree with some others that they need to be shorter. I also figured out they need to set further down in the carving, the indent in the caps are supposed to fit under the edge of the leaves! Then I went back to the lower facial leaves and worked more depth and detail there…..

Creative Woodworking #21: Melting Wood - a must see

12-28-2011 07:24 AM by dakremer | 12 comments »

The Paris, France-based design team of Bonsoir Paris is made up of graphic designers, Rémy Clémente & Morgan Maccari. Along with their team they created Duramen, a series of sculptures, which began as wooden frames that are then reimagined into something indistinguishable. The sculptures create juxtaposition between the distorted nature of the designs themselves and their use of fine woods such as oak, fir, wenge, pear, and linden.

Someone wanted to be cursed, someone needed to be nursed

Well today the postsman took me out of bed with an unexpected parcel. Having nothing pending from ebay, I was wondering WTH it was and whom it could come from. At first sight, something a bit heavy, tightly packed in bubblewrap. Okay let’s open that box. And then… GAH! Mads strikes again! And now I see why he had told me that I would curse him hahaha :D This old chap really needs some caring, everything is rusted, even the bolts inside the handles.No problem, I ha...

Holly pattern, Chip Carving, add color? #1: Chip carved plate, add color?

I’m wondering what you think about my adding some color to this chip carved plate. From the start I’d planned on adding a light, transparent, oil-based green color to the leaves and red to the berries.But now that I’ve gotten this far in the finishing process, I really like the way it looks and I’m chickening out when it comes to doing anything else to this chip carving.What do you think?
