Chip carving patterns #4: Wheat 1

Perhaps a good design for coasters that will hold those beer bottles! Keeping the knife in a near vertical position where the stems cross over will help to keep tear out to a minimum.

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

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 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 ...

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...
