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 ...
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...
The Holsworth Woodworks Family Blog #3: Check back for my latest completed project- Zebrawood Cabinet!
Hey friends! Just wanted to update everyone and let you guys know that I will be visiting my daughter soon so that I can upload my new cabinet made from Zebrawood. I am not computer savvy hence why she is going to post it for me. I am VERY excited about this project and I have taken it to my local woodworkers club- Diable Woodworkers for show and tell. Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!! Sincerely,Glenn Holsworth
Well I have showed off some of my carvings and now I would like to start an entry and open some dialoge on developing patterns from photos. I ran into a program that will take a photo and turn it into a line drawing where I can then use as a pattern. Has anyone else ever done anything like this?I plan on displaying a couple of relief carvings that I did this way in my projects.

I took the fam to the beach. They play while I work. The beach is a great place to find burls and good figured wood.I got about 30 BF of this tigar striped Maple. Nice stuff. I cut it up into 2” think boards.
This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches.
