Projects In Progress

02-07-2011 07:58 PM by groy87 | 2 comments »

Hey everyone, I haven’t posted many projects during my time on LJ due to the fact that I am currently waiting for most of them to dry out before I finish them. In any case I would like to give back to the LJ community and share what I am working on and hear everyone’s feedback. I am just going to post everything that is currently in progress and if there is any interest in a particular piece I will create a new blog with more photos and information :). Here are some of t...

Cello#4 back again

02-06-2011 01:34 AM by techyman2 | 6 comments »

High Folks, Its been a long time since I did the cello due to a mixture of dreadfull weather, work and family commitments but the journey continues.The back plate was glued up using fresh hide glue. It took about 2 hrs to accurately plane the edges square and get a good contact along the entire length of the joint. This joint is of absolute importance that it is done right, surface contact, glue consistency, etc. Normally on smaller instruments it is sufficient to rub the joint together and l...

carving "Thunderbolt" #4: finishing muscle groups and starting the saddle

01-24-2011 07:38 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

He’s starting to look like a horse now, with the muscle groups indicated. I spent quite a bit of time getting the spacing better between the legs and defining the groups of muscles around the legs. A technique I like is to carve the lines and then to sand them so that you get a flowing muscle look instead of something defined by a line cut into the surface. I like to use my veiners for this and then carve or sand the edges back up to the center. Here are a few pictures. When ...

carving "Thunderbolt" #3: Feets Finished!

01-21-2011 07:04 AM by mpounders | 11 comments »

I have spent several days working on the feet and legs and finally have the body ready for glue-up. As mentioned in the previous installment, the body is made of two separate pieces to make it easier to carve certain portions and to orient the grain for strength. It is definitely easier to carve and shape the interior portions of the legs and the legs are one of the more difficult elements to carve. They are somewhat delicate because of the thin-ness and you have to support them carefully...

carving "Thunderbolt" #2: Starting the Horse

01-18-2011 08:03 PM by mpounders | 4 comments »

I found some images for mechanical horses and blowing one up to full 8×10 size appears to be proportioned correctly for my carving. I am using Lynn Doughty’s carving technique for horses. Basically the horse is made of several separate pieces of wood so that the grain can be properly oriented to strengthen delicate areas. And it also makes certain areas easier to carve! The grain in this piece is running from front to back because the legs are extended rather than being in a s...

carving "Thunderbolt" #1: The idea & the rider

01-18-2011 05:29 AM by mpounders | 9 comments »

I have had an interest in automata (A self-operating machine or mechanism) since making a limberjack machine a few years ago. I have wanted to create a machine that incorporated caricatures that I carved and that would be fun to look at, an animated toy of sorts. A well-known carver I admire, Lynn Doughty, suggests that you should strive to make your work stand out, to attract attention, and draw people in. So, I felt a carving that moved would be something different, something that makes yo...

Making a Violin #5: Carving the plates

01-16-2011 08:21 AM by RonPeters | 20 comments »

Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....
