Piping Up #1: What to do with the accumulating scraps

50 days ago by sylinen | 4 comments »

I want to acquaint you with the disease called scrapitis. It’s a chronic condition that manifests itself most commonly in the idle woodworker who is short on funds but long on imagination. It’s chief symptom is an inability to look at a pile of lumber scraps without dreaming up some sort of knickknack or thingamajig to conjure out of the assorted detritus. Sadly, scrapitis is incurable, but it can be treated by the application of tool to wood. I suffer from scrapitis, which has la...

Traditional Chinese Jack plane

68 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Start with a chunk of oak. This is Red Oak, I think. and layout a few lines. A 45 degree one for the iron to bad on, and another for the wedge to press against. Layout some other lines. Where the mouth is, and where the “eyes” go. The Eyes are the two points that hold the wedge in place. Ahead of them is the escape,emt area where shavings are supposed to exit. Like this. Then the chopping begins with the idea of making a hole all the way through. Then ...

Oyster knives #1: working with scraps

73 days ago by piddlinchic | 11 comments »

Well, I’ve decided to put my newly found carving hobby aside briefly while I play with some scrap wood and old skil saw blades. My father-in-law makes rustic furniture and I started going through his scrap pile to discover he has a lot of small chunks of beautiful wood. We cut some curved oyster knife blanks from burnt up skil saw blades and I rummaged through his scrap wood and have found some really nice pieces. This is a new endeavor, so we will see how many I ruin before...

A chinese edge plane

80 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

While watching a video series about China Hand Tool Wood working, saw a plane the fellow was making. “Should only take ten minutes or so to make, very simple..” Yeah, RIGHT. Took me about six HOURS! Anyway, I got out a piece of white oak stock, and tried out some cuts Ok, THAT didn’t go so well. That dummy can saw worth a … Front of the opening was way too big. Plan B. Had a second piece of white oak. Saw guy was a little bit better. Used ...

Driftwood Fish #1: Bass almost completed

92 days ago by piddlinchic | 19 comments »

My first “real” carving and first time ever posting the process of a piece of work, so please just have patience with me :) The fish began with a piece of driftwood I found in the creek behind my house. It already had a nice curve to it, was fairly solid and had a natural “mouth” which I immediately thought would make a pretty cool fish. (sorry I don’t have a pic of the driftwood before I began sanding it some, I just wanted to see what it look...

Carving a small spoon

107 days ago by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...
