Relief Carving My Birger Sandzen-Inspired Desk Door Panel, A step-by-Step Log.

10-10-2007 01:31 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 19 comments »

I hesitate to do this, that which I am about to do. I don’t fancy myself as a good carver, or a great picture drawer. Especially with so many lumberjocks that are great carvers here that will see this. On top of that, there are so many great carvers on the internet that will stumble onto this blog because they surf the net. With that said, after Mark Mazzo asked about the process I go through to do a carved panel like this one, I thought about it for awhile, and decided to show th...

Building a Carved Functional-Art Chair to Match the Tilt Front Desk

10-22-2007 06:17 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 16 comments »

I’ve had a fun week. I’m building a chair to match the Tilt Front Desk that I previously posted, and blogged about. If you want to read about the desk, the posting link is given at the bottom of this blog. The desk chair is designed to fit the customer’s kitchen, as the desk is being placed in the kitchen area. She loves to cook, and hopes to move her laptop computer station to the kitchen where she can capture her thoughts on her cooking blog, and do more writing. ...

Haunted Forest TWO routering

10-17-2007 12:44 AM by Dan'um Style | 11 comments »

Forgot how messy a router is. Mahogany machines like butter.Photos are the project with one section roughed in … deepest section … about 3/8 depth using 1/2 router bit.A section with the poster glued on and the tools I’m using, less the dust collector. As mentioned in Marc’s blog … Bought a 1/8 down spiral do some detail work. One thing I didn’t plan for was the paper wants to lift up next to the router bit. My work around is scoring the drawing with ...

Planning "Steps" for a Carved Story Stick, "The Gospel" Commissioned Walking Cane

06-03-2008 04:08 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

My recent lumberjock postings of the walking cane work I have done recently has brought a lot of interest from folks wanting me to build them special, unique, elaborately detailed, walking canes and sticks. This new blog communicates the design process on one cane as I prepare to start the carving, and get approvals on the final design. The customer is a Youth Pastor, and needs to use a tall walking cane to support a bad knee. He and I have been designing this project for several weeks...

hand carved redwood bench #2: Some progress and an introduction

08-13-2009 05:45 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well the bench is coming along about as slow as possible. Working full time now doesn’t leave much of a window for me to be out there carving. And with some commissioned jobs coming up it will be worse soon. So I’ve been sort of rushing the carving while I’m out there and have to say that I feel somewhat bad, as I am trying to blog how to carve as well. So the tutorial will still happen, but it may not be up par (if they ever are).Right now I want to say that I’ve r...

Stationary box, chip carving #1: Chip carved top

02-28-2011 04:46 PM by MyChipCarving | 6 comments »

Last night I applied the pattern to the top of this 16×9” stationary box top and got started on the chip carving. This is a fun one, for sure. I created this design after looking many times at a table cloth pattern. I knew that table cloth design could be chip carved so I used the basic layout and created this design to fit the top of this box. Stay tuned for more carving on this box…Martyhttps://www.MyChipCarving.com

Hand Carved Sign #1: Pattern, Carving, Priming

10-04-2011 09:58 PM by MyChipCarving | 6 comments »

This is my first attempt at carving a sign. I’ve wanted to try it for quite a while. Our retreat center needed a sign by the road so this sign already has a home all picked out. Dimensions: 36” x 12” x 2”, basswood I know basswood isn’t the best exterior wood but seeing as it will be painted, I figured it should last many years as long as I give it proper care and maintenance. I created the pattern on my computer. Each letter stands 3” tall. The fo...
