This modular bookshelf is a great project for beginning woodworkers and you veteran woodworkers as well. Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself. Add some color and it makes a great display and shelving unit for a kids room. Give it a try.
here is the start of my “attempt” at carving a fiddle top. I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter. http://picasaweb.google.com/roydahlgren/FirstFiddle#
I’ve had an old heavy barn beam, for some time now, and have wanted to fabricate a couple ornamental carved brackets to hold it up. Here is the start of the first bracket. It is modeled after an Atlantes which is an architectural adornment.
Three things that I definitely try to remember: 1. Learn to recognize, to see your mistakes.2. Learn how to correct your mistakes.3. Learn to not be afraid to make corrections! Sometimes that correction may seem quite drastic, if you have not recognized it early in the carving progress. I have a tendency to get too detailed too early in the carving process, rather than carving the overall piece to make sure everything is where it is supposed to be. Doing that, and getting an area su...
We got a little snow in Arkansas today, so I finally had an opportunity to get a bit more done. He does look better with a tail, just like a few of you suggested! I was able to use an 1/8” dowel for joining it to the body and I feel better about it being more solid. Rather than just butting it together with the dowel as a tenon of sorts, I outlined the base of the tail on the rump and then carved a hole for it to fit into. A little carving and sanding after the glue dried made this ...
Hey you LumberJocks, I find myself in the unfortunate position of needing to sell off some wood, so I thought I’d see if any LumberJocks would be interested. What wood does he have, you might ask? Let me list a bit of it for you. Basswood($2.00 per board foot): Great carving stock. A couple hundred board feet in many different sized boards. 4” X 4” X 78”, 2” x 9” x 48”, 4” x 8” X 78” Clear redwood($3.00 per board foot)...
Well I finally finished the Tablesaw Base, trying to film during rain storms is almost impossible with the ambient noise from the rain hitting the metal roof.. but I waited it out, and am very happy with the outcome.. Here is a look at the final steps of building this base
Basswood – Tilia americana If you love to carve then this is the wood for you. It has a cream color with very little to no pattern from grain so you can cut it in basically any direction. Very easy to carve. It’s not the greatest for machining and tends to rip or crush under the pressure of a cutting tool and when sawn it leaves a fuzzy or woolly surface. It’s also not very strong and tends to break into small pieces. One of it’s best attributes in addition to...
Along with Woodworking, I enjoy a new hobby, Screen Printing T-shirts. I started a New Foundation for woodworkers Across the globe to unite and connect. And I am starting to print T-shirts for the UFOWW and found a need for a screen printing press. So here is a look at that build Also I had a short follow up on some notes about the press and why im posting a day early..
