I designed a log clamp to hold logs that are too big for the lathe. My friend, Mitchel Dillman over at Colorado Rock*N Logs fabricated it for me. See how to use it to carve a tenon in this video! Please visit my website and FaceBook Page. Thanks!
If you carve, cut, sand, or even trim your finger nails (does that include everyone?) then you have got to check out this little rotary tool. This weeks review is on the Dremel 3000.
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...
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.

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
It is not always nice to have to stop a project because it is bed time, but it does give you a better perspective view the next morning. Before having this sharp object in your project, I figured I might as well do most of the shaping before the glue up. What I am not sure of is how big to make the handle. It seem too big, but I’ll make an other one after this anyway. I used the Elmer’s Epoxy. I hope this stuff will be strong enough t hold this together. Remember this is ...
Hello everybody. I’ve got a 4 part series on how to make a hand carved box using mostly hand tool. Not much more to say other that, enjoy the show.Oh yeah, Safety Dan says “hi”.
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...
