This is one of the new Penn Industries Knights Armor Pens. The body of the pen is an Urban Camo design in Acrylic.
You can’t appreciate this toy unless you see it in action. I hope the link works. It’s my first ever youtube video and the first video ever shot on my iphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JclY0Ho9dC8&feature=youtu.be I started tinkering and playing with this idea a couple of years ago and just decided to take it back off the shelf. The kids might not want to put their video games down long enough to try and master this simple toy but I would set the age range from 6 ...
The program was broadcast on 14.05.2014 under the program called “local creation.” They invite artists from different fields for interview. (Sorry, but the subtitles are in Hebrew and Arabic only).Please click here to see it
My first “real” carving and first time ever posting the process of a piece of work, so please just have patience with me :) The fish began with a piece of driftwood I found in the creek behind my house. It already had a nice curve to it, was fairly solid and had a natural “mouth” which I immediately thought would make a pretty cool fish. (sorry I don’t have a pic of the driftwood before I began sanding it some, I just wanted to see what it look...
As I have been involved in scrolling for about four year plus my interest has become the older, more detailed, intricate patterns. Like the ones produced, to my knowledge, around the turn of the century. Some of my present and a lot of my new projects will focus on these types of patterns. I have done some extensive research as to where to find these types of patterns. Yes I am well aware the several web sites have some of what I am talking about. However paying $15 for a single pattern vs...
Uploading some videos of the project so far to Google+ As of posting time two videos are uploaded and six more are in que.
I use a lot of dunnage for my projects.It’s from freight shipped out of India and is usually some type of exhotic hardwood.Some pieces are a reddish hardwood. It has a very fine grain, is VERY hard, and every piece has cracks running down it.I have decided to only make mallets and other hard type things out of it.But I’d already cut a cane blank and decided to go on and make the cane. Besides I wanted to see how it turned out. I’d turned the blank to round a few weeks ago...
I didn’t want the first entry to be too long, it was War and Peace just for day 1. So, here’s the rest of day 1 followed by day 2.It’s really just hollowing mostly…hollowing, hollowing, and more hollowing.I stopped the first entry at 9:06 p.m. at about 2 inches depth.9:14 p.m. It’s not brain surgery…a long handled, a study tool rest, wood hitting the cutter head, me hanging on the back of the handle. Down to 4 inches in 8 minutes. The Sovereign can r...
Seth (my daughter’s boyfriend) does yard work for spending money and got some oak logs for me (about 4,000 pounds worth).I decided to try an open form with a (small) piece of it.Since it was green it was heavier than I wanted to try lifting onto the lathe. Besides that’s why I have a chain hoist and trolley. Seth was doing the hoisting…lots of pulling to bring it up…but he’s young. Initial mount to the headstock is a 4” faceplate, the biggest I’...
I took a leather sewing class to learn how to make the Morris chair cushions. -----The seat cushion and the ottoman cushion require web frames. Here I am milling the half-lap components for the web frames. -----Web frame assemblies are glued together. The seat frame should be sized 1/4” smaller in all directions than the opening in your chair, to allow room for the leather and two layers of batting.-----Corner blocks are added to the large seat cushion for additional strength. -----I...
