Playing Around with Carving #10: Best Lighing for Carving

09-12-2011 01:25 AM by WayneC | 14 comments »

So far, I have been carving outside on my patio and the lighting is great. I’m anticipating that I will have to move inside into my garage based shop as the weather turns colder and wetter. The shop has pretty good fluorescent lighting, but I would not say it is the equavilant of natural light. Does anyone have recommendations for lighting to use for carving. I am thinking that task lighting that could attach to my workbench would be a good option. Any suggestions for how I sho...

Carving Tool holders - shop & on-the-go

04-27-2012 08:35 PM by mpounders | 10 comments »

Someone had asked for better pictures of my holders for my carving tools, so I thought I would post a few with a bit of an explanation of why these styles work for me…at least for now. I say that because I sometimes change things arrange if something new somes to work better or if I add tools or something else seems to work. First, here is a picture of the end of my shop where I primarily carve. Four drawers under my workbench hold tools that are not frequently used or that I want to...

SPOON, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

11-11-2010 03:46 PM by rivergirl | 50 comments »

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! Yes, Virginia we now have definitive proof that cavemen did enjoy scooping coffee! In fact cromagnun man (and woman) were the precursor to modern day Starbucks. In response to my recent posting of a neanderthal period coffee scoop, that was presented alongside a lovely model crafted by my L/J friend Jerry W, it was suggested that we begin an archelogical study, a challenge or showcase if you will of scoops and spoons. Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...
