Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #14: Lesson 8 - Applying a Finish

04-04-2011 09:49 PM by MyChipCarving | 19 comments »

Applying a finish to your completed chip carving is a “make or break” step. Do it well and your chip carving comes to life and is something wonderful to behold. Do it poorly and your carving loses the beauty and the finish detracts from the chip carved design. Follow this lesson closely from start to finish and you’ll find success with each chip carving you complete from here on out. I call this the My Chip Carving Quick & Easy Finish Step 1 – Remove leftover...

Pow-wow Dancer -attachments

03-31-2011 11:20 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

Here are a few pictures showing some of the progress on my Native American dancer. I completed as much of the carving as I could on arms, legs and other parts before gluing them on. I use a strip of old inner-tube to hold them on as they are glued one-by-one, and then I carve and sand the joints down and try to keep everything in proportion. I want him to look muscular, but I have to watch the shoulders to prevent it from looking like the arms are just stuck on. I carved the breast-plate ...

´╗┐Here are a few pictures of the progress made on this carving. It shows the legs roughed out and shows how I played with the positions before gluing them in place. I also decided to switch hands with the spear. Now that I have these things in place, I can start carving all the details and decorations. I am working on a design for a possible commission that is more of a priority thatn this piece right now. Thanks for looking!

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...
