Things of wood I have seen #2: A carved castle scene... in an Irish castle

02-04-2010 04:21 AM by mtkate | 3 comments »

As in my first blog entry, this is a thing of beauty I saw at Bunratty Castle in Ireland – wooden of course. It measured about 4 feet square (or so my memory says) and was housed near a window. My guess again is 17th century. I cannot fathom the amount of work this entailed. There is a closer shot of detail I found interesting below. You can see some wear on the dogs – probably from hands reaching up and petting them (alas!). I hope you enjoyed the scenery. See...

Adventures in Carving a Tompson Sub Machine Gun Stock #1: The beginning

01-31-2010 07:04 AM by Jimthecarver | 9 comments »

It was a thursday morning just another day carving at our local carving chapter meeting. In walks a nice elderly gent that had a box of Thompson sub maching gun stocks that never made it to use. They were stored for years, he knew of the carvers and decided to donate them to the club as test projects for us less talented carvers like myself. I inspire to become a great carver someday Dennis Z. in my opinion is truely a great carver.So I decided to take two of them although I was urged to take...

Eye Carving Techniques

01-23-2010 12:17 PM by Eli Adamit | 4 comments »

I was asked about carving eyes in my last project shown http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26334 and answered with a small lesson, It was after most of the members who are interested see already the project and the comment. I assume that more people are interested in this subject so I send it in the blog.I was asked: “On the first side shown, the side with just the head, how did you do the eyes, if you don’t mind sharing. Mostly on carved eyes, I see them carved inward to use shadow to d...

WWI Whirligigs

01-20-2010 01:41 AM by RicksWhirligigs | 3 comments »

Hey everyone!I have recently opened up a shop on Etsy.com to sell my wooden airplane whirligigs. I have so much fun making them, and love learning the history behind each model I build. I have recently moved into the business of selling them, as i cannot possibly fit anymore in my yard!!! You’ll find that the prices I have chosen are very low, just enough to keep the cost of supplies from getting my wifes attention! so check them out here:http://www.rickswhirligigs.etsy.comthanks!!!

Shaker Oval Boxes #1: A whole new angle on woodworking

01-11-2010 05:32 PM by Andy Brownell | 12 comments »

I recently came back from a woodworking class with Dale Barnard in Paoli, IN this weekend where he taught me how to make a set of five Shaker oval nesting boxes in cherry. Dale’s workshop is set up to build just about anything, and he offers some pretty awesome classes for beginner through advanced woodworkers. Initially, I was surprised at how relatively simple the construction a set of one of these seemed to be. I guess that is pretty standard for anything from the Shakers. Howeve...

The Tone Project

12-28-2009 07:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...

A carved lid box for my Daughter who loves Orangutans #1: The idea germinates

12-15-2009 09:39 AM by wyeth | 2 comments »

I have a new idea for the series of sliding lid boxes that I have been making for the girls for Christmas. So far I have completed four but my daughter is leaving for the Philippines and then Borneo just before Christmas and one reason is to fulfil a long dream of seeing Orang utans.My teenage grandson suggested I do an Orangutan for her box lid. I thought OK but how? First lets find some images and print them in monochrome off the net and then sketch a few images. The idea of a wh...
