It was a thursday morning just another day carving at our local carving chapter meeting. In walks a nice elderly gent that had a box of Thompson sub maching gun stocks that never made it to use. They were stored for years, he knew of the carvers and decided to donate them to the club as test projects for us less talented carvers like myself. I inspire to become a great carver someday Dennis Z. in my opinion is truely a great carver.So I decided to take two of them although I was urged to take...

"Automaton" #6: It's .........Aliveeeee!!!!!!!

01-18-2012 06:37 AM by mpounders | 21 comments »

It works! That doesn’t always happen, for me! I still have a little tweaking to do on one cam, but this is pretty much how it will operate. I’ll be able to start on the painting and finishing next, which shouldn’t be too bad. Of course, one of the things that slows me down, is all the “testing” I just have to do! So, as a thank you to those that have followed my blog, I decided to post a little preview of it in action. Thanks for eeveryone’s encourag...

06-15-2012 11:38 AM by ScottMorrison | 6 comments »

Hi everyone, Here’s a Maloof Inspired Shoe Bench built a while back, but the templates and instruction booklet are now available. This one was built from Bubinga, which made it a bit heavier than normal, but will probably outlast my grandkids. Quite a fun little project, especially my favorite part….the handles. Enjoy!

Dining Table and Chairs, Griffin Style Legs. #2: "Carving the Lower Flutes & Scrolls"

01-19-2013 11:54 PM by Dennis Zongker | 23 comments »

The first step in carving out the table legs I began with the side scrolls and front flutes at the bottom of the leg. Before I start carving I always hone or sharpen any knife I will be using that have any small chips in the edge. This will give you a nice clean smooth cut when carving. For the table legs I used Genuine Mahogany it is a great carving wood and I think it has a cleaner cut than basswood because of it’s tight grain. To layout the legs I made a drawing template out of a ...
