Dining Table and Chairs, Griffin Style Legs. #3: Carving the Lion face and wing scrolls

409 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 24 comments »

For the face of this lion my goals are to make him more majestic by carving it closer to the traditional lion’s face verses the last three I made five years ago for the “Griffin End Table.” The lion faces for that end table had more of an Egyptian style to the face. By just making a few small adjustments can really make a big difference in the way the face can change. I altered the size of the eyes and located them outward approximately ¼-in. The main distinction is making the snout larger...

Hand Tool Journey #16: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 4.. Almost There..

440 days ago by Airframer | 10 comments »

Well I have a fully functioning Layout Compass now :D. All that is left is to do the shaping of the legs and some purtification of them. I am still working out the details of the purtification but in the end they should be pretty purty lol. All the pieces laid out with epoxy curing on the pins.. So today was filled with frustration and epoxy and a lot of brass dust. It started with cleaning up the mortise that the arc goes through and embedding the head of a copper rivet into the...

Hand Tool Journey #15: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 3

441 days ago by Airframer | 8 comments »

I’m pretty excited right now. I just finished attaching the legs to the hinge and so far nothing has fallen apart! From what I can tell the hardest part is behind me and now it is just a matter of shaping and fitting the adjuster arc to the legs. I also got the fine tuning nut built up and tapped. I still need to make an adjusting screw for the arc but that won’t take very long. Today at the OB appointment we were told that we will be induced on the 20th so only a week ...

Hand Tool Journey #11: Crown Handle Replacement Surgery..

445 days ago by Airframer | 12 comments »

As mentioned in my Workbench Blog I was planning to replace the gents style handle on my 8” Crown Gents Dovetail Saw with a more suitable one. This will be more of a photo essay than anything but lets just say most the pics are of take 2 of this event lol. I am pretty happy with myself for getting the saw kerf cut free hand with nothing more than a scribe line and a HF flush cut saw :-) Sadly I was so “in the moment” that I forgot to take pics of the procedure. I hope ...

More progress on Lizard Cane

456 days ago by mpounders | 12 comments »

I completed as much carving on the handle as I could and then epoxied it to the shaft. The shaft is also basswood and i used a 5/16th threaded rod about 6 inches long epoxied in place. I decided how I wanted the tail wrapped around, outlined it with a v gouge and then rounded it over and relieved the background. I carved down the back of the lizard where the tail joins the shaft to get a smooth transition. The customer doesn’t want this guy painted, but the scale patterns I will bur...

Carving another Lizard Cane

466 days ago by mpounders | 13 comments »

I was contacted a while back by a lady in California who had seen the cane I carved from a Bradford Pear branch. She rescues and has raised monitor lizards and was interested in buying a cane from me. I came up with a design and she approved it. She did want the head lifted a bit and she especially liked the “expression” of the other lizard. Here is the design I came up with. She wanted something that looked like the lizard was sitting on the handle, rather than part of or ...

Turned handles #2: Brass ferrules arrived

497 days ago by Dan Krager | 6 comments »

Today I received the brass flare caps that will become the ferrules. The handles all have several coats of oil finish and just glow with an invitation to pick them up. These caps were $0.59 each! The cheapest big box price was $1.19. http://www.installationpartssupply.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_code=fittings-brass-flare-cap#.UUO3GPV1N8F Says they’re back ordered, but I got them within two weeks. After contacting them, they told me they normally don’t stock...
