Carving in horn is qute fun, its hard as stone, but the end result is quite Nice. A trick my grandfather learned me is to boil the horn in milk for a couple of hours before starting to carve the patterns. In the bottom of the caseroll i putt some Wood sticks to prevent the bone toutching metal and getting burned. It just needs to barely boil for a couple of hours. This makes the bone get softer for short time and i can do the rough carving, i preffer to do the finish when its Cold ...
Good day is a day with good work. This time i want to show some of projects with carved letters. This kind of work needs a few things:- time- patient- sharp chisels- patient- certain hand- patient, patient, patient…The fun thing in this artcraft is that, there is no place for mistake. If one move will be done badly, then all letter is gone. The edges of letter must be done perfectly. It’s a lot of work to make your hand, moves so precisely, but it can be done. This project is a...

When things slow down at work, I sometimes get to carve a bit in my office! I keep an extra glove, thumb guard, and a utility knife in my drawer, and it can be very calming to whittle on a ball or ornament or something for a few moments. I did this guy this afternoon, inspired by Don Mertz and Dave Stetson. He’s a little guy, about 2 1/2 inches total. I like the challenge of using using the utility knife to put details in such a small carving, although neither as small or detailed a...
I have spent the better part of my life building what I would call rustic furniture, I love the experience of going out into the woods and find some unique natural branch, bark or burl and incorporating it into a design.. Doing this thing on YouTube where I have been sharing ideas and jigs that I build to (I hope) inspire people to thinking out side of the realm of traditional craftsmanship and maybe try something new.. any way the link below is to a slide show of a few off the pieces I have ...
I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...
Ok, so a few weeks ago I had to prune a limb off one of our flowering cherry trees, rather than throw it away, I decided to put the thicker parts to use: spoons. I have an old hatchet I picked up on Ebay, a lock-blade knife I found in a ditch, and a spoon knife I saw at Rocklers, so I went to work. I roughed out the spoons in the green wood. This went pretty well. I spent a lot of time carving out the bowls of the spoons. Learning techniques with the spoon knife was a matter or ...
