I’m currently on holiday in Ireland and thought you folks might appreciate this shot, apologies for the somewhat shoddy photo’s, of a circa 1570 Chest, Yep, thats right, 1570 !! I must admit that this trip has been really different as I’ve found a whole new perspective on things like that chest and a couple of cooperage exhibitions at Jamison’s and Guinness.

"Carving Acanthus Leaves into, Lathed Fluted Columns"

04-01-2010 03:44 PM by Dennis Zongker | 37 comments »

There are 8 fluted columns to this bedroom set. The columns were turned on our “Legacy” Ornamental Milling Machine, by one of our shop craftsman, Dennis Nygard. I’m carving the 64 acanthus leaf’s by hand with “Pfeil” carving knifes and a small brass mallet. It’s easer to cut the solid cherry by lightly taping with a small mallet. Each leaf takes about 3 hours per leaf. Plus set up time and drawing time, which takes about 2 hours. So, each spindl...

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #6: Sharpening

03-22-2010 04:20 PM by chscholz | 2 comments »

Introduction to Sharpening of Chinese tools One 15th century contractor complained that his craftsmen spent about half of their time sharpening their tools. Considering the fact that Chinese woodworkers had a preference for gnarly old wood, the harder the better, this does not come as a surprise. History of Chinese Sharpening Tools Little has been written about Chinese tools, but almost nothing has been written about Chinese sharpening stones. In his book China at Work, Hommel mention...

Chip carving patterns #9: Leaf 1

03-18-2010 04:23 AM by lovestoys | 5 comments »

Time to start with some curves – I’ve created a pattern that’s based on an article that Wayne Barton published about designing your own leaf patterns. I did a simple leaf, and just reflected it around the boundary. I put in a tulip pattern in the center, but feel free to fill the center with a design of your own.
