MCAD Furniture Class #4: Building a Scale Model

2278 days ago by Jeff | 14 comments »

As mentioned in the previous entry, at the suggestion of my instructor, I modified the design such that the whole top would be a torsion grid. This approach did present its own problem though. Since the design called for the ‘leg’ to act as a massive tenon seated in the underside of the top, I would need a lot of bulk around the leg. I considered laminating solid wood pieces to build it up. I decided against that; I can’t recall why. Instead, I opted to take what I call t...

1150 days ago by MyChipCarving | 13 comments »

I’ve assembled the chip carved quilt with the squares that many of you sent my way. My apologies to those of you who don’t see your square in the quilt. I tried my best to get as many as possible in the space and finally had to leave some out. So sorry. Now, please go to Ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190542019969) where I’ve posted this quilt on the auction block with all funds received going to the My Chip Carving Foundation, to help tho...

Building a Tablesaw Base Part 1

475 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 13 comments »

Recently I had a need to build a new table saw base for my saw. Rather than just building a simple replacement base, I opted to build one with lots of storage potential. This new base measures 6 feet long by 2 feet wide, which gave me good reason to move over to the new shop building. I haven’t yet finished the new shop set up ( haven’t even started) but this build is a great start giving me lots of options for storage potential… This build is a 2 part project. So be sure to...

Carving on the Cartecay #1: - The Setting

1118 days ago by helluvawreck | 13 comments »

A few weeks back my family had the opportunity to go to my brother’s cabin on the Cartecay River up in north Georgia for a four day weekend. It is a beautiful place to visit and the log cabin has all of the amenities, is very nice, and has ample room for a large family to live in comfort. There is a screened in porch that stretches all the way across the back of the cabin and a stone covered patio on the bottom floor under the porch. The porch and patio have ample furnishings. On the po...

1234 days ago by MyChipCarving | 13 comments »

I know that drawing and working on patterns is not enjoyable for many chip carvers. With that in mind, we will start carving tomorrow. I’d still like to encourage many of you to give pattern development a try.I’ll provide some patterns for you to carve. Adding your patterns to the mix will give our finished project more variety. Also, there’s a great sense of satisfaction knowing that the pattern you are carving is one that you came up with on your own. Here’s an...

Carving another Lizard Cane

470 days ago by mpounders | 13 comments »

I was contacted a while back by a lady in California who had seen the cane I carved from a Bradford Pear branch. She rescues and has raised monitor lizards and was interested in buying a cane from me. I came up with a design and she approved it. She did want the head lifted a bit and she especially liked the “expression” of the other lizard. Here is the design I came up with. She wanted something that looked like the lizard was sitting on the handle, rather than part of or ...

Large picture frame commission #1: Making carving samples and the frame.

2298 days ago by Roger Strautman | 12 comments »

Finally back with the next steps in this project. Chip carving relies heavily on shadows so when designing the frame profile I had to make sure that the angle of the frame wasn’t to much or to little other wise the carvings won’t show up under the lighting of the picture. Making the frame was a trial and err process for me. The first picture shows how I was able to get both pieces that make up the frame with one angled cut and by flipping the small piece over. I also ma...
