Time lapse Woodworking #9: Carving walnut bar stool seat

02-09-2011 05:58 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 7 comments »

In this video in my time lapse wood working series, I’m carving a Canadian Black Walnut seat.I have already laid out the seat outline and drilled my depth holes as reference. I first use a kutzall coarse carbide disc to rough grind the seat. I find it best to remove material evenly over the entire seat. Once I finish with the rough grinding, I switch to a 7’’ 60 grit sanding disc on my much larger and heavier ridgid grinder. This is a work out on the fore arms! I then ...

Projects In Progress

02-07-2011 07:58 PM by groy87 | 2 comments »

Hey everyone, I haven’t posted many projects during my time on LJ due to the fact that I am currently waiting for most of them to dry out before I finish them. In any case I would like to give back to the LJ community and share what I am working on and hear everyone’s feedback. I am just going to post everything that is currently in progress and if there is any interest in a particular piece I will create a new blog with more photos and information :). Here are some of t...

Cello#4 back again

02-06-2011 01:34 AM by techyman2 | 6 comments »

High Folks, Its been a long time since I did the cello due to a mixture of dreadfull weather, work and family commitments but the journey continues.The back plate was glued up using fresh hide glue. It took about 2 hrs to accurately plane the edges square and get a good contact along the entire length of the joint. This joint is of absolute importance that it is done right, surface contact, glue consistency, etc. Normally on smaller instruments it is sufficient to rub the joint together and l...

carving "Thunderbolt" #8: a Tail at last!

02-05-2011 07:45 AM by mpounders | 4 comments »

We got a little snow in Arkansas today, so I finally had an opportunity to get a bit more done. He does look better with a tail, just like a few of you suggested! I was able to use an 1/8” dowel for joining it to the body and I feel better about it being more solid. Rather than just butting it together with the dowel as a tenon of sorts, I outlined the base of the tail on the rump and then carved a hole for it to fit into. A little carving and sanding after the glue dried made this ...

ROUTERS HAVE SO MANY USES

02-03-2011 03:37 AM by jeremyslat | 2 comments »

Hello fellow woodworkers, I was messing around in the woodshop with my BIG BOSCH ROUTER and just thinking about how useful it can be. It’s amazing to me how you can put just about any edge on a piece of wood and give that nice or unique look. It’s that uniqueness people are looking for in a project no matter what type it is. I’ve read many books and articles on routing but haven’t yet tried everything there is to accomplish with a router. I’m learning slo...

carving "Thunderbolt" #7: Heads Up!

01-31-2011 06:53 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

I got the head finished and glued on this weekend! It turned out ok…ears may be a bit long?You may notice that the ears are slightly darker…...they were soaked with the thin CA glue after carving, to strengthen this delicate area. Pretty sturdy now. Carving is “subtractive-sculpture” in that you take away wood to create. And a lot of what you “see” is what is also the negative spaces created. The shadows that are created give depth and create ill...

Collapsible Castles, my first

01-29-2011 12:47 AM by MasterSergeant | 3 comments »

Being new to the “blogging” stuff here I go. Let me start out by saying I am new to woodworking and my goal is to learn how to 1. use my used/new woodworking equipment safely and efficiently and 2. learn how to cut/carve/sculpture wood into beautify/functional items. I want to be able to complete the interior trim work on the house my wife and I just built. I wanted to learn how to use my new Jet 18” band-saw first and foremost. I just completed a pretty neat little ...
