Evolving Band Saw Project #4: More incorporation of random areas

09-28-2010 04:47 PM by wyeth | 0 comments »

I decided that the cuttlefish is attacking a fish as the wood looks a bit like a fish tail shape after I did some band saw outlining so I worked on giving more form to that area.The end of the wood has some finger-joint routing that seems to look OK. The area below the fishtail looks like a good place to shape some coral type formation.The eye of the cuttlefish is formed using 2 sizes of forstner bit on the drill press.The area below the cuttlefish seems to suggest the head of a fish ̵...

Evolving Band Saw Project #3: Developing the Cuttle Fish

09-27-2010 11:11 PM by wyeth | 1 comment »

I started by working on the body,tail and tentacles of the Cuttle Fish. The idea with relief carving is to create shadow patterns that make the objects appear more 3-D than they actually are. To be effective they have to be correctly lit – usually by unidirectional light from above and to one side. The final display situation for the carving needs to be kept in mind. Small changes in lighting will make a large difference in the final impact. I don’t want this carving to look to...

Evolving Band Saw Project #2: Bit of practice pine

09-27-2010 01:39 PM by wyeth | 1 comment »

From time to time I had done a bit of practice carving , pyrography and edge finger jointing on some scrap pine so I wondered if I could work this up into something to fit the underwater theme of the band saw project. The idea of a cuttlefish and its prey began to take a vague shape in my imagination. So I penciled in some outlines and started carving. Not very promising yet but things should get better.

these are two spoons i made for a friend of mine in Arizona, one is a ladle and the other is a spoon, the ladle is made from red cedar and the spoon is made from sassafras , i used my scroll saw to cut part of the shape, then i used my dremel, my foredom and hand chisels to create the hollowed out portions, these were the first kitchen items i have made and they were fun, although taxing for someone who has carpel tunnel or arthritis…but they were enjoyable to make and certainly enjoya...

Spoon making 101

09-07-2010 11:15 PM by Andy | 22 comments »

The top and bottom spoons are Myrtlewood from Oregon, and the center one is Mahogany. Each took about 1.5 hours.The handle of the top spoon is a twist, but didnt photograph very well.I noticed the recent contest posted by Osageman and was impressed with both his skill and his big heart.Be sure and take a look at his page and make a guess on that wood.I couldnt identify that wood, but it got my attention.It got me interested in making a few spoons this last weekend and I wanted to share my...

Handmade Portraits #5: Handmade Portraits: Jason Tennant

08-20-2010 09:30 PM by Etsy | 5 comments »

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see Nature at all. But, to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is imagination itself.” — William Blake, Letter to the Reverend John Trusler, August 23, 1799 Jason Tennant is grounded. He is rooted in his place with strength and dignity, not so distinct from the trees surrounding him. Before ...

Computer Desk #2: A few pictures...

07-24-2010 11:27 PM by Scott G. | 4 comments »

Ok, it’s been awhile, but here I go with a few pictures of what I have done so far. Mind you, it’s far into the crafting of this desk, but everything will be clear I hope! First, the desk in its upside down assembly set up. It’s upside down because my wooden floor in the shop is not level, and it’s not easy to put the pocket screws into this thing by having to shim everything. Shim the workbench and be done with it! Next, the axes are put on top and measured...

New to Wood Carving #1: I have never attempted to do wood carving.

07-02-2010 10:50 PM by sandhill | 5 comments »

I have never attempted to do wood carving other than some chip carving but lately I have been fascinated by some of the work I have seen. I watched a guy in Savannah Georgia doing carving in front of a consignment arts shop and was captivated by his skill. My wife and I are looking for a motor home to travel the US and I was concerned I would not get to do any wood working which made me not want to do any traveling but now I think wood carving would be the ideal thing for me to do while on lo...
