Just a pattern I’ve been playing with. Pretty basic approach to a rosette. The outer dimension is 3 1/2” square. The pattern starts with approximately a 10mm border. Enjoy.

"Carving a Scroll Acanthus Leaf" Onlay Application

1623 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 32 comments »

It’s about time! We finally got a good job with a lot of carving. It’s a three piece bedroom set. The style is close to the early Victorian Period. Their are 4 Scroll Acanthus leaf’s that I designed, two that go on the bed and two that go on the dresser. Now I am starting on the 8 turned legs with acanthus leaf carvings on them. All the carvings are out of solid cherry. Here are 33 pictures, on how to carve this type of “Architectural Ornament onlay application̶...

Latest Lowe's (In)Experience

1633 days ago by Uncle_Salty | 11 comments »

Got a technology grant through Perkins (don’t worry if you don’t get this part; vocational educators will get it!). We didn’t want to make the committment… yet… of a CNC router system, so I convinced my Administrators to go with the least comment denominator… the Carvewright. I know, I know… I have read the reviews… talked to owners, etc. But with my amazing mechanical abilities, I figured I could keep it up and running for a couple of years ...

Adventures in Carving a Tompson Sub Machine Gun Stock #2: Roughing out the scroll pattern

1634 days ago by Jimthecarver | 4 comments »

This adventure in carving has been very enjoyable.The scroll pattern seemed to be a bit more advanced than I had anticipated. Although I am never one to run from a challenge. I kind of get a grin and ….well as my mom always said “you can see the wheels turning in that boys head.” So I grabbed a very small home made gouge and the chips were flying….sort of.This wood is so very dry for carving After about 12 hours I ended up with this. I am attempting to simulate bullet ...

1642 days ago by bern92 | 10 comments »

I juste want to share with you Jocks my little hand tools collection. It was a gift from a old judge who got the tool box of his great grand father who use to build home in 1875 to 1905. He was from Quebec Canada and he participated in building the great resorts in Banff, Lakelouise and all those places in the Rockies. Most of the tools came from that tool box and some i got from friends and garage sale…...here’s the metal plane part a the my tools and one wooden plane. I will pos...

Shaker Oval Boxes #1: A whole new angle on woodworking

1658 days ago by Andy Brownell | 12 comments »

I recently came back from a woodworking class with Dale Barnard in Paoli, IN this weekend where he taught me how to make a set of five Shaker oval nesting boxes in cherry. Dale’s workshop is set up to build just about anything, and he offers some pretty awesome classes for beginner through advanced woodworkers. Initially, I was surprised at how relatively simple the construction a set of one of these seemed to be. I guess that is pretty standard for anything from the Shakers. Howeve...

Review of High Torque Carver/Engraver

1674 days ago by cmckerliesr | 1 comment »

I purchased the High Torque Carver/Engraver item # 147235 from Woodcraft.com a couple of weeks ago. I received it on time, packaged well, and in good condition. I will say that once I opened the box and actually held the tool in my hand I was a little disappointed. I was lucky enough to buy it on sale for $44. Even at that price, it felt rather cheaply made in my hand. I had read the description very carefully before buying, because for one I already own a dremel. Which I have been having ...

Patterns from Photos

1712 days ago by KCKID | 3 comments »

Well I have showed off some of my carvings and now I would like to start an entry and open some dialoge on developing patterns from photos. I ran into a program that will take a photo and turn it into a line drawing where I can then use as a pattern. Has anyone else ever done anything like this?I plan on displaying a couple of relief carvings that I did this way in my projects.
