I got my carving fixture completed today. Now I should be able to make some more progress on the carving. Been going slow because I have been focused on rehabilitation of my leg. Finally able to put a little weight on it (30%) and this means increased exercise, physical therapy and such. I’m still adjusting to the new level of activity.
The fixture is made from some borg 3/4”by 24” by 24” plywood squares. I laminated two sheets together for the top to support being able to put in some dog holes and use various devices such as wonder pups and carving screws. The dog holes are 3/4” and were drilled by hand using a forstner bit.
The other wood parts come from cull box at Home Depot. I always check it for usable wood. In the past I have found sheets of hardwood faced plywood with a little damage for around $4 per sheet.
This is intended to be used on top of a work bench. For the time being I will be using it on a portable work table.
