The old time woodshop journals #46: A book worth more than just shavings

191 days ago by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

What book is that? Oh, it is the rereleased printing of Wille Sundqvist’s “Swedish Carving Techniques” For a few years now this fine book has become a sort of cult classic and being that this book was out of print the powers that be that did have it for sale were sure to put a hefty price tag on it. I have seen copies in various condition ranging anywhere from $150-$500…..yeah…..It pays to wait. Finally about 8 months or so back this book by popular demand ...

Maloof Low Back Chairs #1: Rough up

195 days ago by Dave G | 2 comments »

The hard maple table displayed in my projects needs chairs. We have a small house and a small dining room. The chairs must slide mostly under the table out of the way. Another LJ displayed his low back chair and the idea was born! I bought Charles Brocks plans and video. I chose hard maple to match the table. Sure it’s hard.

carving in horn, #1: Carving in horn(raindeer) in progress.

This makes the bone get softer for short time and i can do the rough carving, i preffer to do the finish when its Cold ...
