The following are pieces that I hAVE WORKED ON OVER THIS PAST WINTER. iT IS STILL TOOOO cCOOLLLLDDDD to do much in my garage-Shop, but I get out there when I can so here goes, I’ll try and post more aS THEY COME ALONG.
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.
Here is the process I used to attach the carved turkey foot to a bark-on shaft. I am not sure what type of wood the shaft is, but I selected it for the interesting bark it has. I have used this type before and the bark stays attached and has interesting colors and textures. The trick is to make a nice transition between it and the carving, trying to make it flow, nut just a carving stuck on top of a stick. I used wooden dowels and Titebond glue to join the carving to the stick. After the glue...
