All work and no play?

08-30-2013 08:47 PM by mpounders | 7 comments »

When things slow down at work, I sometimes get to carve a bit in my office! I keep an extra glove, thumb guard, and a utility knife in my drawer, and it can be very calming to whittle on a ball or ornament or something for a few moments. I did this guy this afternoon, inspired by Don Mertz and Dave Stetson. He’s a little guy, about 2 1/2 inches total. I like the challenge of using using the utility knife to put details in such a small carving, although neither as small or detailed a...

Rustic Furniture #1: Four Yrs in The Making

08-22-2013 07:20 AM by Izzy Swan | 6 comments »

I have spent the better part of my life building what I would call rustic furniture, I love the experience of going out into the woods and find some unique natural branch, bark or burl and incorporating it into a design.. Doing this thing on YouTube where I have been sharing ideas and jigs that I build to (I hope) inspire people to thinking out side of the realm of traditional craftsmanship and maybe try something new.. any way the link below is to a slide show of a few off the pieces I have ...

Carving Green Wood #1: How much will green carving wood move?

08-08-2013 05:13 PM by Tom Pritchard | 2 comments »

I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...

Spoon fixation

07-25-2013 12:41 AM by sgmdwk | 1 comment »

Ok, so a few weeks ago I had to prune a limb off one of our flowering cherry trees, rather than throw it away, I decided to put the thicker parts to use: spoons. I have an old hatchet I picked up on Ebay, a lock-blade knife I found in a ditch, and a spoon knife I saw at Rocklers, so I went to work. I roughed out the spoons in the green wood. This went pretty well. I spent a lot of time carving out the bowls of the spoons. Learning techniques with the spoon knife was a matter or ...

Workbench Build #26: Standing on it's own 4 legs...

07-08-2013 05:59 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Time for some catch up and an update. Most of you who follow the workbench thread on the forum have already seen most of this but I feel compelled to keep this blog alive and I really need to resist the urge to spam the forum with progress updates and keep them here lol (sorry about that guys!). So we left off with the legs being glued up so naturally the next step was to square them up and make them more “leg” like. I had to get creative with the clamping to make this happen...
