One of the people that my dad works with in my company has asked me to make for him a Pen complete with a leather case + a wooden box for his boss. I guess that he thinks that a good gift will improve his chances of keeping his job. Either way, i have to make it really good. He has given me pretty much free reign on what wood to use etc. So this will be an important project for me because it is one where i can really see if i’m any good at designing, etc. I ca...

The same friend I had made the Gavel for, dropped by the other day. He asked me if I would carve Old Rusty’s name on this cross for him. Old Rusty had passed away one year ago on this very day, & he was missing his old buddy. It was quite a coincidence, Rusty died on my birthday in 2008. After I got started on it, I thought it would be nice to do a relief carving of Rusty. He was a Golden Retriever, so I asked my friend if he had any good pictures of Rusty. He didn...
Well it’s finally warm enough to do some woodworking out in my shop so I decided to start a tool cabinet to hold the few planes I own & any other hand tools that would fit in it. I have plans to build a bigger cabinet that is transportable but for now this will do. My first criteria is that it will hold a Stanly #8 plane that I don’t currently have but hope to in the near future. I think that plane is near 24” long so the cabinet has to be long enough to hold it. I made a list of all the...
hers the start, it’s going to be a long hard build. but i know if it was easy everybody would do it!!
Hello all, Just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that I am in NH taking another class with Mike Dunbar in beautiful snowy Hampton. I arrived from PA in the early evening yesterday after 60 degree weather only to wake up to a snowy morning. The funny part is that I loaded my road bike into my car in case I would get some riding in on the beautiful coast…not. We worked on the seat and the crest today and I believe we will be finishing the seat and legging up the chai...
I got the limb 100% sanded, my husband is inlaying turquoise in the base, next we will drill the holes for the cord. The dark spot you can see on the base is where we applied sanding sealer, there is a bit of rot so this helps harden the wood and it also keeps the glue from staining the wood when we inlay the turquoise.
So right now I am just doing a little easy 6×6x6 box for my girlfriend. I’m using poplar and I am going to paint it and maybe felt the inside of it. She’s in college and recently joined a sorority and i thought I would cobble together a little box and paint with Tri-Sigma Greek lettering, colors and symbol. In this case I’ve chosen the sail boat over the skull and cross bones. More to come….
Hi everybody, I started learning wood carving. I have found that ther is not many websites that shows how to carve. So I did it….my way. In the process of wood carving, it’s not but working with wood fiber direction and sharpened gouges. And believe me, without the last point, forget wood carving. Half time of my wood carving courses, was atribuated to gouge sharpening. For this, I’ll start a blog soon. From a french book that my teacher gave me: “La...
