Basket Weave Pattern #1: How to do it

09-27-2017 11:13 AM by toolfooldan | 6 comments »

Basket Weave Pattern Technique Adapted from the book “High Relief Wood Carving” by William J Schnute. Layout a grid of squares. Each side of the grid equal to the width of the carving gouge you’ll use. In this instance, the gouge is 5/16mm. Each side is therefore 16mm, or about 5/8”. Since I’m more imperial than metric, I used 5/8. Close enough. Each side of each grid square will get a stop cut with the 5/16 gouge. Mark orientation lines. It’s real easy to make mista...

Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 3 - End

06-07-2017 11:54 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 2 comments »

Hello everyone !This is the third and last part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench (a Moxon vise benchtop bench). Today I share with you the making of the handles and the finishing. To make the handles I considered to embed the nuts in a floral shape, using the leftover wood of the legs, (guayubirá “Patagonula americana”).It is evident that at this stage of the work, we can make a perfect flower, symmetrical, neat, but above all cold.However, to bring something more natura...
