1st fiddle by ROY D #7: carving top

1903 days ago by roy | 4 comments »

here is the start of my “attempt” at carving a fiddle top. I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter. http://picasaweb.google.com/roydahlgren/FirstFiddle#

So what's it worth?

815 days ago by scrimman | 3 comments »

For the longest time I’ve wondered how to answer that question ‘how much is it?’ How do you judge that? I’ve finally gotten down to the point where I’m going to have to just start being a little OCD and start writing it down. Thus far it’s been working ok; I’ve got a couple of celtic crosses I need to carve for a couple of weddings I’ve been invited to. Being that the wood, this time, was free I can concentrate on what it is I do to it…...

Grave Marker for Old Rusty!

1962 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 12 comments »

The same friend I had made the Gavel for, dropped by the other day. He asked me if I would carve Old Rusty’s name on this cross for him. Old Rusty had passed away one year ago on this very day, & he was missing his old buddy. It was quite a coincidence, Rusty died on my birthday in 2008. After I got started on it, I thought it would be nice to do a relief carving of Rusty. He was a Golden Retriever, so I asked my friend if he had any good pictures of Rusty. He didn...

"Automaton" #5: Big Dog

923 days ago by mpounders | 5 comments »

I’m still working on the fit of the head to the body, but he is mostly finished. I’ve never carved a dog before, but he doesn’t look too bad. I’m still working on the mechanisms to move his head and tail. This is how he will be positioned with the old fellow. I will probably have the tail on the side of the man, to avoid accidently breaking it while turning the crank. I need to pick up some supplies for an idea I have for the legs/feet on the whole contrapti...

not so Koshuo Bench #3: Bench Seat Taper

806 days ago by AKSteve | 0 comments »

I Finally got some time to work on the Bench today ! woo hoo ! I scraped and sanded the top and bevelled the bottom half of the seat, I did it all manually with a smoother planer, block planer, and a japanese saw. The supports for the Cross braces for the Beams turned out nice, I love to do it by hand, it is so much fun! and it looks really nice, pictures tomorrow. I am building the Cross beams right now and I am not to sure about the design yet, I like it but it’s just not complete to ...

carving "Thunderbolt" #10: Almost ready for paint

1255 days ago by mpounders | 9 comments »

I’m starting to get close to completion. I got the base finished and made a few adjustments to the mechanism. I got the hat on the cowboy, which is an interesting little process. You basically take your beautifully carved little head and slice the top off with a bandsaw! A disc sander then helps you get it nice and flat to fit in a recess carved in the bottom of the brim, which is separate from the crown of the hat. You might be able to make out the buttons and end of the belt that ...

Keeping track of my wounds: 13 and counting...

2156 days ago by David A. P. | 6 comments »

I decided at the very start of my woodworking adventures to keep close track of any injuries I managed to incur, in part out of curiosity—knowing that it’s a hobby notorious for its danger, at least in comparison to most other hobbies—and in part because I want to identify where I go wrong, so I can address the problematic action(s).So far, I’m up to 13 cuts. Of these, the breakdown by source is as follows: 1, flush-cut saw. 1, paint scraper. 1, bow saw. 1, ch...

Carving face. #1: Carving face - part 1.

265 days ago by Snycerz | 1 comment »

This project is still in my workshop. I took this emocional face from an ancient sculpture “Death of Laocoon”. It’s not easy to show emotions in sculpture and keep of all anatomy in one piece ;) That’s why this one is taking me so long. Oak wood. Movie part 1. - Face emotionsMovie part 2. - Face emotions ...hope the third part will be the last one ;)
