Chip carving patterns #9: Leaf 1

03-18-2010 04:23 AM by lovestoys | 5 comments »

Time to start with some curves – I’ve created a pattern that’s based on an article that Wayne Barton published about designing your own leaf patterns. I did a simple leaf, and just reflected it around the boundary. I put in a tulip pattern in the center, but feel free to fill the center with a design of your own.

"a Hunter's Cane" - a design for a commissioned cane

04-25-2011 05:11 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

I have been exchanging emails for several months with a lady regarding a cane design for her father. Her father has hunted extensively and has strong connections to Minnesota and Colorado. I had some ideas for a design and we refined those ideas over several months. The lady wanted to use wood from Minnesota and Colorado for the cane and for it to have hunting themes and connections to places important to her father. This is to be a gift to her father from her and her brothers for this Fa...

Make a First Aid Cabinet For the Workshop

05-03-2013 06:39 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 5 comments »

When a viewer sent me a comment asking if I could make a First Aid Cabinet for the workshop, I thought to myself. “Yea what a perfect project to do”, because I am setting up the new shop, and it was the one thing missing. The First aid Cabinet was made almost entirely out of Pallet Wood. Oh yea! my first Pallet Project! http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com – Websitehttp://www.ufoww.com – The United Federation of Woodworkers Member Sitehttp://www.twitter...

Drying Burl Wood #1: Drying Domestic Burl Wood: Consideration #1

08-27-2012 04:29 PM by OregonBurls | 5 comments »

Hey to all you LJs, Consideration #1 I thought that I would start a series on drying green domestic burl wood. With burl wood the end grain is going every direction and is under more internal pressure thus making it want to self destruct. Green burls or straight grain have two places where water finds its home. Inside the cells and outside the cells, this is called bound water (inside the cells) and free water (outside the cell walls). Free water is easier to escape than the bound wa...

Beginner Looking for Wood Source

06-07-2010 10:13 PM by BandAidFingers | 5 comments »

I am just getting started as a wood carver and still exploring where I will go with it. I have a few knives and chisels and adding some along the way as I learn what I need and where to get them I am also trying to find the best source for wood. Since I am currently only doing chip carving, small sculptures and reliefs, my needs are not great. I am purchasing small blocks of basswood from Rockler and Woodcrafters locally. Is there a better / cheaper source for my wood? I have been unabl...
