Medal Chest #6: The Devil's in the Details

492 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. While fuming over the death of my hand plane (see death of a plane below) I decided to switch tactics and work on the detail piece that will grace the front of the chest.  I plan to use a piece of basswood, carved, and set i...

493 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. My mother competes every year in multiple track meets for seniors, known collectively as the Senior Games (they’re broadcast on ESPN sometimes).  She’s been doing this for a few years and has amassed quite the co...

Carving another Lizard Cane

499 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 ...

Building a Tablesaw Base Part 1

504 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...
