Shop Remodel #23: Look Boss, De Plane

12-22-2015 02:23 AM by bearkatwood | 9 comments »

I am making a separate plane till to go with the set in progress, but I wanted to have my most used planes close at hand in the cabinet. I also have a few that I have acquired that I would very much like to refurbish and use. So today I worked on the Plane till that would go into the cabinet. I started out by taking a picture of the cabinet, the planes I wanted in there and using photoshop to conjure up a likeness of what it might look like. I had a large piece of maple left ove...

Photographing long or tall projects. #1: Photographing long or tall projects.

03-12-2015 11:53 PM by Druid | 11 comments »

Since a lot of us produce “longer”, or taller, items that we want to post on LJ’s, we typically end up having to take the photo from a distance so that the entire object can be included. The resulting photo ends up not showing the finer details of your work.This type of scenario applies to some of my own pieces, such as carved walking staffs, or canes, but there is a free tool to help us get around this problem, and I expect that it is already installed on your PC with eithe...

Cane With Character

03-09-2014 12:01 AM by Pooka | 0 comments »

I jumped the back fence several months ago. We have a canyon out there and there is a lot of deadfall and detritus that I like to rummage through for odds and ends that might make interesting additions to my project list. The last adventure uncovered this length of acacia which I thought might make a neat cane. It’s very hard wood, so carving it has taken a lot of hours. Obviously, the thing can’t get chucked up on my lathe, so I took some killer grinding bits to it with my ...

MT. Man Cane #1: Getting Started

07-25-2011 04:34 PM by JJireh | 1 comment »

Had a little time while attending a festival with the girls. The wood is a slightly curved Cherry and this Mt. Man has started to show himself. It has a little wood beetle issue that I need to take care of, but really I like the ‘trails’ they leave in the wood.

Ready, Fire, Aim: Twisted Laminations Cane #1: Why not?

03-07-2011 09:30 PM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

Thursday last a very good client asked if I could make him a cane. “Unique” was his only request. I have made canes before, but mostly by putting a T-handle on a limb of some gnarlment. In pondering the word unique I couldn’t get past the cliche of multi-colored lamination with purpleheart in the middle. Hey, it looks great, looks right, looks strong. Then I thought about giving it a twist. Friday: First I cut my 1.25 inch stock (various species) to length&#...
