Carving a Life Size Statue #5: Detailing the Hands, Arms, Face, and the Torso

12-02-2016 03:38 PM by Dennis Zongker | 12 comments »

It’s been awhile since my last blog on carving Jesus, the reason is it takes forever to carve in the details on his 6’-2” frame. Carving in the details is my favorite part of carving, it takes longer only because I’m being very cautious not to make a mistake. Plus it would be sad to see a grown man cry for a two week period. lol Here are a few pictures of detailing the Hands, Arms, Face, and the Torso. of the Crucifixion of Jesus. Next I’m starting on the S...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #3: Bandsaw Jig to Cut Log Slices / Christmas Ornaments

11-08-2016 10:44 AM by Humus Workshop | 2 comments »

Hi everyone, a few weeks ago a friend asked me these slices to use as Christmas ornaments and I took the opportunity to release the laser machine. So far I had cut the logs by freehand but this jig is very handy and works very well. Hope make more jigs for the bandsaw in the future because is very handy to save money in blades. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/dKV1M2XVJ2s Thanks for watching and be loving!

Carving a Life Size Statue #4: Jointing the arms,Sizing the body,Carving some details

10-17-2016 12:57 PM by Dennis Zongker | 17 comments »

This is definitely the most difficult carving for me so far in my life. I’m learning a ton and getting in good shape doing something that I love to do. Using a plum bob is an excellent way to find depth points to re-ensure that I don’t carve to deep. On the face alone using 37 different points to locate important depths to match up crucial face details. The face is not fully detailed I will go back and detail after the arms and hands have been sized then I will glue on the arm...

So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...

Restoring Carving Tools #1: New Life For Abused Carving Tools

10-08-2016 06:14 PM by Druid | 12 comments »

I recently unpacked a set of 6 small carving tools (no maker’s marks) that I had purchased at a carving show several years ago. These poor little tools had obviously been abused, but I figured that they could be brought back to life with a little care and patience. I really would have had difficulty cutting my finger with them. Here’s what they looked like, complete with fairly coarse grinder marks. So, the time came to work on these, and all it took was 3 steps.1. I did a fairly ...
