Framed Fossils #1: Trilobite Fossil in oak frame with bronze accents photo blog

06-09-2011 12:27 AM by Dan'um Style | 10 comments »

There is a man in my town that has a private museum. He has hundreds and hundreds of items, all in display cases with custom spot lighting … the whole nine yards. A for-real rich guy. Well anyway he hurt his back and is in a wheel chair, is getting old, downsizing etc. He put up an eBay auction for a few fossils and because he had such a new eBay number, no one bid on his objects much. I bought a couple pieces before he gave up selling on eBay.......Frame is white oak and is 16 inches a...

New to the community and the craft. Hello everybody!

06-04-2011 05:50 PM by Ward Grant | 10 comments »

Hi all. What a fantastic village you all live in here. Very cool! I am new to carving and to your community. I love working with all the local woods available in the lower mainland. I have only transit for transportation so I scour the beaches and trails and river banks for pieces to call out to me to work with. I grew up in the north country and really miss seeing diamond willow. Are there any diamond willow stands in the GVA? I don’t desire to chop down any trees…I look ...

Wedding Clock #8: Tapers & Out of the Shop

05-28-2011 02:34 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

This feels like real progress! By the end of this blog, you’ll be able to see that this clock is actually coming together. When I stopped last time, I was waiting for the BLO to dry on the front frame. It dried. Now I need to apply shellac. I decided on clear to let the cherry darken and age on it own. Maybe on their 50th wedding anniversary the couple will pull out some old pictures and see how the tone has mellowed, just like them. Here’s a shot of the shellac being appli...

Wedding Clock #7: Three "F's" or Disaster Recovery

05-27-2011 01:24 AM by kenn | 1 comment »

The Front Frame is Finished (ala 3 “F’s). Here’s how I made the front frame and recovered from my disaster. I started by jointing the inside edges of the stiles flat and square with my #7 plane. The a little layout and I was off and running …no, I meant mortising. Chopping down and levering up the waste, I made a mortise. Checking to make sure I made a square mortise as I went along. As you know, the ends of the mortise are saved for last. Once the center is exc...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #14: Arts & Crafts Picture Frame - Very Rough

05-25-2011 12:45 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 1 comment »

Made my first project using the new Mortising Machine. It’s a rough Arts and Crafts style picture frame. Material is 1×3 pine which is part of why it’s pretty rough. I didn’t want to do a lot of glue clean-up so the only glue is on dowels that pin in each corner. The tenons fit pretty tight by themselves. I have an old map from 1897 of the city I live in that I wanted to frame. Besides the machine I tried some new techniques with some success. As usual I...

Wedding Clock #6: DISASTER STRIKES!

05-24-2011 12:19 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

I was making great progress on the clock. The wedding is 17 weeks away. My wife commented that she thought it would be done in time today. I headed done to my shop. I’ve been working on the front frame and thought I might be gluing it up today. Here’s a look at the lower rail, nice tight joint. I needed to put the profile on the bottom of that rail. As you may remember from my last post, I am using a huge fortsner bit to establish the curve and then bandsawing out the waste...
