"Halloween Heads"

10-31-2010 06:37 AM by mpounders | 8 comments »

Happy Halloween! I thought a collection of decapitated heads seemed appropriate for the spirit of the holiday! These are all “works in progress” that will turn into something sooner or later. I do these as a form of relaxation and practice. Some are actually planned as parts of complex toys. I have plans for the little boy as part of a cranked toy that will have him performing as part of an animated piece of art. I keep getting side-tracked on him. The witch was planned as par...

Things of wood I have seen #6: A few pieces from the Gdansk City Museum

10-25-2010 06:27 PM by mtkate | 4 comments »

It’s been awhile since I posted anything so I thought I would start with a few things I saw on my recent vacation. So much of Poland’s riches were destroyed during WWII, but they did manage to preserve a few gems and they have also invested quite a lot to rebuild and refurbish.. When you first walk into the museum you are greeted by this beautifully carved staircase (roped off so no one can climb). . A nice set of chairs and a table from the turn of the 19th century&...

Just a little over half way done. These 13 pictures are the next stages on how to carve “Green Man” He is a little scary. I like him that way. I makes it fun for Halloween. The next steps will include carving the leaves and final shaping up the face, and under cutting the leaves. Thank you for looking, and happy woodworking to you.

Carving a carving knife #1: First attempt to make a carving knife

10-22-2010 04:38 PM by PaBull | 11 comments »

My second oldest daughter needs a birthday gift and I have only days to complete it. Don’t you love those last minute projects? She is into carving, but only has the carving set with the “end blades”. So why not build a carving knife. So last knight I started with a block of pallet wood, a rod of 3/16 brass and a sawzall blade.The shape I was going for is shown here: I took a sawzall blade and cut it in half with a sheet metal cutter. (this stuff is hard to cut) After ...

Evolution of my router planer #4: Version 1.2a

10-21-2010 06:01 PM by TZH | 4 comments »

Version 1.2a At this point I decided to get more “radical” in my design approach. I removed two of the cross rails (found out through experience that I didn’t need them anyway). Then I took the corner poles out of the flanges and put a “sleeve” on the side of my table for the corner poles to slide into (see photo below). Electrical conduit clamps work great for attaching the sleeves. This design also allowed me to adjust the height of the router sled in...

Evolution of my router planer #3: Version 1.2

10-20-2010 10:31 PM by TZH | 5 comments »

Movin’ right along, here’s Version 1.2 of my router planer. Because I’d made the router sled larger in order to accommodate larger pieces, I now needed to design something bigger for the sled to ride on. That’s when I came up with the idea of using longer piping for the end poles and cross rails (instead of the 12” pipes and the plywood cross rails shown in my first design). The photo below shows my first attempt (my “beta” version) at this new des...

Evolution of my router planer #2: Version 1.1

10-20-2010 02:46 AM by TZH | 8 comments »

The next design I came up with for my router planer was based loosely on some of the designs some fellow woodworkers had posted right here on Lumberjocks. The biggest design change was that I eliminated the sled pictured in the first photo in my last blog entry and used angle iron glides instead. Now here was a design I really took a liking to right away. This one allowed me to plane much larger pieces without fear of slipping off the edges of the runners because the router moves withi...

Making a Violin #2: End Blocks and The Middle Bout

10-16-2010 05:12 AM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

I’ve cut and installed the corner and end blocks on the mold with just a dab of glue, so when I remove the mold, they release easily. These are what the ribs (sides) attach to. The blocks are made of willow because of its lightness and the added benefit that it is a fairly straight grained wood which makes cutting with the inside gouge an easy task. I then drew the points and top and bottom using the template. These are two different violins – reason for two templates. U...

The Adventures of Carving, "Green Man" #1: Carving "Green Man" Beginning Steps.

10-10-2010 12:20 AM by Dennis Zongker | 23 comments »

Only about 1/4 of the way done. Showing some carving stages on how to carve “Green Man” This is really fun for me, just having some fun, carving something for myself. When I’m done I will hang him on top of my fire place at home. If I have the extra time I’m hoping to be done in about three weeks. Size 3 1/2” thick x 14” wide x 17 1/2” long. Made out of basswood.

Wine Bottle Holder (Kitchen Challenge CS1)

09-30-2010 04:08 AM by Heidi Neely | 32 comments »

Creating this project was fun, because it was a combined effort that Keith and I made together. I wanted a wine bottle holder for our kitchen, but after looking in stores and online I couldn’t find one that I really liked. So, thinking like a LJ I decided to design one myself, and asked Keith if it was something we could do as a weekend project together. This is my original pencil drawing showing the design I came up with: Next, I came up with a design for the carvings we would ...
