Adventures in CNC routing #1: Honey-do sign test #1

11-05-2017 02:40 PM by Tooch | 5 comments »

Last year I purchased a CNC machine for our school, but didn’t really get passed some basic stuff with the stock files that came with it. I recently decided that I wanted the kids to get more exposure with it, but I first had to teach myself. I gotta tell ya, some people think creating things with a CNC machine is easy, but that is certainly not the case. I’m finding that it is a different kind of “hard”, with lots of time being spent setting up the files, creating ...

Chip carving journey

10-28-2017 01:23 PM by FancyChip | 7 comments »

When I decided to study wood carving in the university almost 10 years ago, in 2008, all my “friends” rotated the forefinger close to the temple and told that I had gone mad. At that moments I checked my feelings from the taken decision, and, you know, did not feel that I had gone mad (although from such a constant reminder I already began to doubt myself), did not feel the “wrong” choice – I was in anticipation of what awaits me while studying, I was, after all,...

It's all about respecting someone else's work

10-22-2017 06:14 PM by FancyChip | 11 comments »

I do not mind that my patterns were used by other people in their works: especially when there is an appropriate question about if it’s possible to use them or not? (there are especially kind and inspiring requests about using my patterns that I keep in my soul); I do not mind sending the album / all my albums of patterns to all those who, I feel, really need them. But what I will never be able to understand is that when a person crosses the line of the property of others’ works a...

How to Set a Japanese Chisel Hoop

10-17-2017 07:39 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

Video is here View on YouTube Just a simple method that will work to set the hoop properly on your Japanese chisels. Just remember that if you buy a brand new Japanese chisel that they will NOT come setup and ready to use. You are expected to set the tool up the way that you prefer. If you haven’t done anything with Japanese tools this task is a great confidence booster and a great starting point for your skills. It’s truly not difficult and once you’ve done it a few ...

A drawn and a carved pattern

10-11-2017 07:04 AM by FancyChip | 2 comments »

It seems to me that a drawn pattern and a carved one are completely different things. And it’s all about their perception: sometimes something that can be drawn on paper can not be carve out on wood – because they would have different compositional moments. What looks good on paper could look not so good as a whole composition on wood – maybe, because of the depth of carving. So, when preparing a pattern for carving on paper, it is necessary to mentally relate it to the patt...

Carving Mother Mary #3: Hand Carving a Female Face

10-09-2017 01:50 PM by Dennis Zongker | 18 comments »

It’s kind of amazing with all the small differences between a mans face compared to the female face. Carving Mary’s face was really fun for me, it took about three weeks. The customer wanted her to look young around 15 years old with a peaceful, praying look. To match up to the clay model I made several months ago was quite changeling from half scale to full scale, onto wood. Here are a few pictures showing some steps, Thank you for looking!!! ...
