Lesson 1 – LayoutIn this lesson I will show you step-by-step how to draw the pattern onto our wine bottle holder. Before drawing any lines on your wood, be sure the surface is properly prepared. I covered this topic in a previous Lumberjocks Class. Here’s the link http://lumberjocks.com/MyChipCarving/blog/21835 With the wood surface prepared, we’re all set to draw our pattern directly on the wood. Use a soft lead in your mechanical pencil and compass. The soft lead is muc...
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 ...

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. ...

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...
