Slim Chickens

03-16-2012 03:22 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

This is the second carving in the scene I am doing with the little cowgirl. She will be walking her chicken on a leash. I have some friends who keep a few chickens and I am always accusing them of dressing their chickens up and treating them like pets. I suspect getting them to wear a hat might require some extra feed though! I still have to burn and paint this, after I complete the legs and feet. I used 20gauge copper wire and solder to get the basic armature for the legs and feet. I&...

Making Wooden Flowers #4: Starting the Assembly

03-24-2014 02:24 AM by Ronbrush | 6 comments »

Step Four – Assemble the Centre Petals I prepare the petals by soaking them in water for a few minutes to make them pliable. I set a few petals on tissue to absorb excess water before gluing. I use cyanoacrylate adhesive because it is fast setting. Moisture helps to speed up the curing process. This makes it the ideal adhesive for this project. I also keep a can of acetone and several cotton swabs handy for those inevitable times when my fingers become part of a flower!...

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...
