« Part 36: Starting to Carve the new Leg Vise Part 37 of My First Workbench series Part 38: Leg Vise Chop Carving Update II »

So I had some more time today in the shop and continued to work on the leg vise chop. There’s not much to tell, the picture show the progress. It was slow, sweaty work, but this is the result of about 2 hours. Had to hone the chisels but other than that, everything is progressing as planned.

Finsihed the final shaping of the banner (just needs smoothing and sanding) and started in on the dragons! Woohoo!

Really liking how the curled banner looks 3D! Thanks to Mary May and her latest article in Popular Woodworking on carving linen folds in wood!

Here’s the main event:

I took a bad picture it seems. Straight down does not do it justice. But it sure is fun trying to get all the little nooks and crannies around that dragon head. Looking forward to doing the celtic knotwork-like necks!
