So what's it worth?

05-04-2012 12:10 AM 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…...

Texas Cane

03-01-2013 05:14 PM by mpounders | 11 comments »

I got a NEW lathe! So now I can turn longer shafts for canes and other things. Really pleased with it. Here is a cane I’m doing as a commission, with an antler handle and a lot of carving on the shaft. The designs are based on leatherworking patterns and will cover most of the cane. May end up having to keep it! I am working on a design for another lizard cane, a lady here in Arkansas may want a couple of canes, and a gentleman in Canada has contacted me about a Santa staff. Hopeful...

Work in progress

04-18-2009 04:05 AM by onehitwonder | 11 comments »

I began working on this in high school, but had to rush to finish in spring of senior year. I started with a Nakashima design for ideas then ran with my own vision (with a little guidance from my teacher). The entire piece was crafted by hand (with a little cheating here and there). As soon as I can gain access to a wood shop, I will do some touch-up work and finish polishing it. I have come a long way, but it is far from complete. Here is what I have so far… created in just over 2 semester...

worksharp jig

07-06-2014 01:22 PM by Gibernak | 4 comments »

I’ve had WS 3000 a year now and I still love it. I recently bought the bar attachment and some Tormek jigs. It works amazing. But I needed a way to remove the burr on the inside of my gouges when using the SVD 185 jig. So I made these mushroom shaped tightening knob out of MDF, they lock the wheel on and I can the apply honing past to them. I made some different sizes and with different past for different sizes of gouges. They works very well. Just wanted to share the idea. ...

mahogony/ironwood writing desk #1: my writing desk

09-01-2009 07:44 AM by Jeremy Hill | 12 comments »

Can I put pics in the blog? I’d like to share my project with you guys, but it would be better if you can see it. Let me know please.We were given an overflowing truckload of scrap hardwood a fellow woodworker who was moving to south america. A lot of it was t and g floor cut offs and most of the ironwood planks were stained half way down the length and most all of it was stock rejected due to imperfections. So I thought it was a great opportunity to hone my joinery skills and do someth...

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...

Working on a relief

05-30-2012 02:13 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

See if you can guess what I am carving on! I’ll put the answer at the bottom of this post. Some friends approached me about making a housewarming present for a new music director at our church. The wood appears to be spruce. It carves like cedar, in that it is soft but splinters easily, sands easily, and it doesn’t really have the color or smell of cedar. I have always wanted to get better at relief carvings, especially wildlife, with the hopes of some day carving a few gunsto...

Pow-wow Dancer - burning in details

04-08-2011 06:40 AM by mpounders | 10 comments »

I used to do woodburning with a single temperature pen, similar to a soldering iron, that I purchased at a hobby store. I had some success with it and you can create some nice stuff with it, but that is probably due more to the talent of the user than the quality of the tool! Pyrographis technology has improved since then and after a lot of reading, I decided to spend $130 on a variable temperature unit with a replaceable tip pen. Wow! Tremendous difference, like going from crayons to pen...
