Carving a Welsh Love Spoon #2: The Caged Ball

09-02-2015 10:00 AM by Brit | 14 comments »

In this episode, I show you how I tackled the caged ball section of the Welsh Love Spoon. I started by squaring the outside of the cage and transferring the aperture opening to the other three sides. I then marked the diameter of the ball on the other three sides, but whilst doing that I found myself wondering whether or not the ball I’d drawn was the right diameter. After all I just drew a ball freehand along with the rest of the spoon. Should it be a certain diameter and if so, how big? ...

Carving a Welsh Love Spoon #1: Designing the Spoon

08-30-2015 01:49 PM by Brit | 16 comments »

On my woodworking bucket list, I’ve always wanted to have a go at carving a ball in a cage and a chain. With this in mind, I decided to incorporate these elements into my next spoon project (This will be my 4th spoon). So I grabbed a suitable piece of Lindenwood and sketched out my design. I went through a number of iterations before ending up with this. However, while I was ripping down the two sides of the spoon with my saw, it occurred to me that a caged ball and a chain were ...

Hydraulic Crane (Toys and Joys) #5: Kerf making

08-16-2015 02:50 PM by Dutchy | 4 comments »

In the doors there are small 1/16” kerfs added . To achieve this I considered to make the door in layers but eventually I bought a Pheil cutting knife from 1/32” (1 mm) and curved it into the wood. Maybe 1/16 would have be a better width. Please let me know. There are also 1/16” (2mm) cutting knives. Benefit of this knives is that the knive widht almost automatic will be the kerf width. You may not believe me but in real it looks better than on the picture. ...

Building an Aircraft #1: Plans and Pieces

08-13-2015 01:14 AM by jase | 2 comments »

Hi all, I’ve recently started wood carving and had some questions on how I did it. I work on F-16’s and my woodworking mentor and friend finally showed me how he makes them so I thought I’d help explain it. This principle works the same for any plane, and I’ve also made a Huey Helicopter for my dad, and my co-worker has made a UAV. Step 1: Find some FREE plans online. I went to google and typed “F-16 schematic” and selected the largest dimension phot...
