Woodworker's Auction #2

06-19-2012 09:17 PM by natesd | 1 comment »

The end date for my Dad’s auction is a little less than a week away (June 25). Every time I look at listing on the auction sight I can’t believe how much stuff there is. I said in my first blog about this auction that “all” his tools and remaining stock of lumber was up for sale. That isn’t quite true my brother and I have kept a few tools and a stock of wood for our own use in years to come. But it’s hard to believe that what we have kept is maybe a fourth...

Progress on lizard cane

05-21-2012 04:28 AM by mpounders | 11 comments »

I got the shape all blocked out and carved. I ran into a few insect holes, but I filled them and a few checks where the limbs were with some epoxy putty. I decided I would carve the eyes rather than order some glass ones. I’ve been wanting to try a technique I’ve heard others mention using epoxy to give them a realistic look. Here you can see the size of the carving and stick. It is not a tall stick, but you can rest your hand on the end or hold it slightly below the top. ...

Making the Wren #1: Start, to almost finished

05-17-2012 06:17 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

This is the finished bird that I started 2 weeks ago. It took about 24 hours to get it to this stage. I still need to make a mount for the bird, and I’d like to make it unique. That means no ‘bird on a stick’, but also not the trite ‘wren on the edge of the cup/bucket/shoe’ environment. I’ve been wracking my poor little brain trying to figure out something unique and good- that I can do in 3 weeks. Any suggestions.ideas would be appreciated. ThanksNow to th...

Roger Stegal Carving seminar

04-23-2012 02:17 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

I’ve been replacing the roof on a shed and doing other carpentry work, so I haven’t carved much in a few weeks. But I spent the weekend attending a two day seminar by Roger Stegal, a member of the Central Arkansas carving club, who has won several awards in different Caricature Carvers of America competitions. I had a lot of fun, picked up s few tips, sharpened some tools for other members, and got to visit a bit. I liked a couple of his smaller carvings, a Santa and a mounta...
