Still working away on this, but I try to go slowly at times to make sure I see things that need to be changed. I sometimes rush through things and don’t always pick up on mistakes until after they are finished and sitting on a shelf. Some people recommend looking at your work in a mirror to help pick up on problem areas, but I often see things in photos of my work that I don’t always see when holding it in my hand. So I am trying to correct a few details. Someone may have mentione...
One of my favorite pass times is playing pool (Billiards) and I thought this would be a cool project to share with you. If you have a pool table in your house or man cave or if you know someone who owns a pool table this would be a great gift to give… Also be sure to check out and subscribe to my new Youtube Channel “The Rundown” to get follow ups on my main project videos, that are on my main channel, as well as the rundown on small easy to build projects, ...

Just a pattern I’ve been playing with. Pretty basic approach to a rosette. The outer dimension is 3 1/2” square. The pattern starts with approximately a 10mm border. Enjoy.
I quickly discovered I had way too much wood for this head, much too wide! So I spent a lot of time whittling it down to a better fit! I may have to shrink it a bit more, but I am still mainly trying to get the rough shapes. Better too much than not enough I suppose. I did add some difficulty to the carving by choosing to do the mane like I have. With a mane that just lays down on the neck, you can just round over and shape the neck, then carve your hair out of that. Since this sti...

This year’s Christmas Gifts will consist of a bottle of wine and one of these hand carved bottle stoppers. Each one will be a little different but all will be holding a bottle of wine (some hidden behind them) and all will appear a little tipsy. I am carving as many as I can before Christmas. I’ll paint them as a group just before the big day.
Lesson 1, Part 2 – How to sharpen your chip carving knife As a kid, did you ever grab that old hand saw hanging in your dad’s garage and try to cut a board with it?I know I did! No wonder my dad didn’t do any woodworking. I would’ve be better off taking karate lessons and breaking the board with my fist. A dull tool in the shop leads to burn marks, ratty edges, and wandering cuts. Not only that, but it requires a lot more force on your part which can lead to inju...
Just wanted to congratulate Jordan for being featured in the current Highlander e-magazine. That beautiful war shirt certainly displays some of his spectacular talent. For those who do not get the Highlander emails – here is a link to the article – Jordan's war shirt carving. Great to see some of your fantastic carvings getting more exposure….it should certainly lead to more commissions as more realize what exquisite work you do.
