Wood Library - Basswood

2261 days ago by GaryK | 4 comments »

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...

Making Wooden Flowers #2: Flattening the Shavings

128 days ago by Ronbrush | 4 comments »

Step Two – Flatten the Shavings The shavings need to be flat so they are usable for flower making. This is easily done by soaking the shavings in a container of water for ten minutes or more. The shavings will still be curled but running a hot iron on the shaving as it is unrolled will evaporate the water and leave a flattened strip of paper-like wood. Please don’t use the iron that you use for ironing clothes and other fabrics! The process described here is not kind to the iron as y...

One to overcome is of cource the growth vortex that occures in some species and not in others. One question I have is this, Is there a right-hand vortex that occures above the equator as opposed to a left hand one bellow the equator? When a tree wiggles and struggles up out of the grownd, It also “...

"Automaton" #3: Arms and hands

935 days ago by mpounders | 3 comments »

A little more progress on this. The left hand is just a fist that is part of the arm, while the right hand is a separate piece carved to look like he is snapping his fingers. The arms will be doweled and glued to the body before shaping them further. I glue them on one at a time and use a bit of rubber as a clamp. I’m using wire brads as the hinge pins for all the joints. I use CA glue to strengthen the areas around the holes that these pins go through. The head and the right hand a...
