Had a great time today with Rustic Rick his wife Nancy, Billie J. and his wife Lou Ann, SteveMI, and Myself and my lovely wife Kris. I got a cheaper version of the Gripper from Woodline USA, at $16.00, and a router for my Dremel. Oh man they had some wood to die for, we just had no way to get it home. I’ll have to let the other guys tell you what they got cause I wasn’t paying to much attention. Needless to say I couldn’t find any Lathe tools to speak off. Or any thing else ...
Perhaps a good design for coasters that will hold those beer bottles! Keeping the knife in a near vertical position where the stems cross over will help to keep tear out to a minimum.
Found a cool trick to help with the dry air of winter carving. I’ve been placing a piece of dampened paper towel around the wood blank an hour or two before I carve. When I first did it, I just put it on one side, which lead to some weird warping, but when the blank re-dried it was flat again (whew). This pattern relies almost entirely on the basic triangle cuts, so it’s good for practice. I used a simple flower motif in the center, it can be left blank or used for some...
Another basic coaster pattern. I use the straight lines to practice my “pull” cuts. The star bursts are done with a stab knife.
Just a pattern I’ve been playing with. Pretty basic approach to a rosette. The outer dimension is 3 1/2” square. The pattern starts with approximately a 10mm border. Enjoy.

It’s about time! We finally got a good job with a lot of carving. It’s a three piece bedroom set. The style is close to the early Victorian Period. Their are 4 Scroll Acanthus leaf’s that I designed, two that go on the bed and two that go on the dresser. Now I am starting on the 8 turned legs with acanthus leaf carvings on them. All the carvings are out of solid cherry. Here are 33 pictures, on how to carve this type of “Architectural Ornament onlay application̶...
This adventure in carving has been very enjoyable.The scroll pattern seemed to be a bit more advanced than I had anticipated. Although I am never one to run from a challenge. I kind of get a grin and ….well as my mom always said “you can see the wheels turning in that boys head.” So I grabbed a very small home made gouge and the chips were flying….sort of.This wood is so very dry for carving After about 12 hours I ended up with this. I am attempting to simulate bullet ...
Anybody who has studied Chinese woodworking will not doubt have come across prints like this one where a ancient Chinese woodworker is depicted pounding on a piece of furniture with what appears to be the blunt edge of an axe. For example the Lu Ban Jing, a woodworkers manual written around in the 15th century, shows a woodworker assembling a table by pounding on one of its legs with the blunt side of an axe. During much of China’s long and colorful history, China has been more or le...
