Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #2: Where no flowers grow during winter, The colouring.

03-20-2014 03:54 AM by koraile | 5 comments »

As you see, i have finaly come to the last part of the flower carving. I have the rough shape, and started the last part of sanding and detail shaping. I have always loved this part when it comes to these types of carvings, when at last the image i have had in my head takes form and gets Sharp, its like tuning a lense. The Picture finaly gets Clear, at this stage i have a hard time letting go. On this Project im working in the livingroom, you might have noticed :) Its cosy in my li...

Birth of a 4-axis CNC machine #8: Control box enclosure - the machine now has a key!

03-17-2014 07:44 AM by DS | 16 comments »

Now that I have all my power supplies drivers and controllers, all those electronics need a nice safe playground to hang out in away from the dusty environs that the machine will no doubt foster. At first I didn’t think I could get a box this nice. These water-tight Nema enclosures are big bucks!But, I found a guy on eBay with a reasonable asking price, ( his wife must’ve wanted to park her car in their garage again ), and I made an offer, sobbed out my poor man’s DIY cnc...

Cane With Character

03-09-2014 12:01 AM by Pooka | 0 comments »

I jumped the back fence several months ago. We have a canyon out there and there is a lot of deadfall and detritus that I like to rummage through for odds and ends that might make interesting additions to my project list. The last adventure uncovered this length of acacia which I thought might make a neat cane. It’s very hard wood, so carving it has taken a lot of hours. Obviously, the thing can’t get chucked up on my lathe, so I took some killer grinding bits to it with my ...

Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #1: Where no flowers grow during winter..

02-16-2014 12:59 PM by koraile | 6 comments »

Crossing that invisible line from using traditional handtools to using powertools was a hard stepp for me. Growing up, my grandfather, my dad and uncels would get strikt if they ever saw sandpaper on the workbench vile carving. Bottom stamping or patterning ,and the use of sandpaper on carvings was considered something used by amatuers or someone trying to hide their errors, In the old woodcarving School we where not alowed to have sandpaper on the workbench at all, we got told to remove i...

Turkey Foot Cane - attached to shaft

02-11-2014 05:32 PM by mpounders | 3 comments »

Here is the process I used to attach the carved turkey foot to a bark-on shaft. I am not sure what type of wood the shaft is, but I selected it for the interesting bark it has. I have used this type before and the bark stays attached and has interesting colors and textures. The trick is to make a nice transition between it and the carving, trying to make it flow, nut just a carving stuck on top of a stick. I used wooden dowels and Titebond glue to join the carving to the stick. After the glue...

How to make hand made curved surfaces look good in a chair bottom

02-10-2014 01:41 PM by Nels | 10 comments »

When I started out working with wood, it was a chore to find any information. I went to used book stores and bought anything that might help and asked any woodworkers I knew. Then Fine Woodworking came along and now the internet. Lumberjocks is the best help I’ve found. There are always several guys who have gone through the same problem.Now, I’m working on 15 chairs. There have been three difficult parts. The curved back, the back legs, and the chair bottom. I’m curre...

Turkey Foot Cane

01-31-2014 11:03 PM by mpounders | 7 comments »

I’m working on a cane for my son-in-law’s father. He’s a fanatical turkey hunter and this is a surprise for his birthday in March. John provided a turkey foot as a model for me and I took pictures and enlarged them to get the foot to a size that would be usable as a cane handle. I also modified one of the claws to prevent having a piece sticking out that might get broken. I have a glue joint fight below that toe, so I have the grain of the wood running properly for strength....

Just for Fun #7: Peyton Manning Chainsaw Carving

01-25-2014 08:24 PM by ScottShaeffer | 3 comments »

This silly story started Sunday evening when I was all jazzed up after watching my Broncos clinch their ticket to the Super Bowl! I decided I wanted to make a video for my YouTube channel that was Bronco related as a way of showing a little team spirit. So Monday morning I found a beetle kill pine log in our shop and decided I’d take a shot at chainsaw carving – something I’ve never done before but have wanted to try for a long time now. Using my 445 Husqvarna with a standar...

Looking at the spring graduation of my niece, and just for fun, I decided to make a video of the carving process to the beat of a techno tune and still tell the story. To see which female scientist I choose or how I made the carving, please view https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zk4OmUNecR8b Just do not tell my niece.

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #5: Ch Changes, turn and face the VISE

01-24-2014 03:22 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 10 comments »

Soooo, it’s been a while. There’s been a lot going on and I haven’t found a lot of time for woodworking. I’ve worked on a few small things here and there, but nothing major. I’ve recently gotten back into woodcarving and have been enjoying dreaming up projects and learning new techniques. I got out to the shop one day a couple months back and decided I wanted to shorten my bench and put the vise closer to the end. At first I tried to do it with a skill saw...
