A Parrot IS NOT an Eagle!

1892 days ago by robbinscabin | 9 comments »

As usual, LumberJocks has shown an interest for the photos that we really don’t want to share! So, I reluctantly post this first sad attempt of an Eagle here…NOT in my projects. I do agree with my hubby that Eagle #2 is much better! Oooh, I hate it when he’s right! ;~)

Hal Taylor Rocking Chair #1: Week 1

1898 days ago by NY_Rocking_Chairs | 5 comments »

After having received several requests for a detailed blog of a rocking chair build I spoke with Hal Taylor and received his permission to do this. This chair is based on his first book and set of plans. He has a new book with updated plans which I am getting soon. This is not a full-time job for me so I will be posting one week at a time since I get to spend maybe an hour every other night on the chair. Week one sees the planing and cutting out of all the blanks. I purchase 40-50 bd...

1st fiddle by ROY D #7: carving top

1898 days ago by roy | 4 comments »

here is the start of my “attempt” at carving a fiddle top. I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter. http://picasaweb.google.com/roydahlgren/FirstFiddle#

Carved Backyard Bear #2: The Chickadees' have moved on.

1899 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 5 comments »

We’ve been watching the Bear for over a week now, & the little birds haven’t shown up. I think the bear didn’t meet the proper specifications, or the bird building code. I also believe the Robins, & Squirrels may have scared them away. It’s sitting too much out in the open, kind of low to the ground. I’ve heard of birds starting a nest, & leaving it for a different location.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You ca...

S.O.S.~~LumberJocks to the Rescue!

1903 days ago by robbinscabin | 15 comments »

THANK YOU ALL!!! One hundred times…THANK YOU!!! When my router went awry…well, I could’ve cried. So many hours of work and I didn’t believe my mother’s gift could be salvaged. I sent out an SOS and boy did you all respond. Your ideas, tips and tricks were amazing but most of all your encouragment left me believing that I could FIX IT! So I headed downstairs and attempted my FIRST EVER patch job. While not perfect I think it’ll look just fine afte...

S.O.S.~~Disaster Mistake!

1903 days ago by robbinscabin | 14 comments »

So, I’ve been down in the workshop just plugging away at a surprise gift for my mother. She thinks I’m working on a door for my Uncle’s 75th b-day (and I will~~eventually) but instead I’m working on a screen door as a gift for Mother’s Day. I’ve got about 16 hours of work in the jigsawing and carving and probably just as many in the design process. ! It’s the most complicated door I’ve ever attempted and it was going well until… my route...

Carved Backyard Bear #1: The Chickadees' are refurbishing our backyard Bear Carving.

1906 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 13 comments »

This old Bear carving is being put to some good use, Maybe a Birdhouse. The other day I heard a pecking noise, & discovered a Chickadee pecking on our Bear. At first I thought he was eating ants, but I soon found out he was building a new birdhouse inside the Bear. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ He could see it was hollow, by peeking in a hole up above.. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here he turned around &...

Tool Cabinet #2: Tool Cabinet #2

1919 days ago by tinnman65 | 7 comments »

Well after some time away from my shop because of the cold weather I did get back to this cabinet. I finished carving the sides to the best of my limited carving ability.While I was doing that I put the door panel and the case back in the veneer press, then I put the case together, and then finished the door after it was out of the press. I had to figure out how I wanted to fit the tools I have in the cabinet so I laid them out on some brown paper to give me some idea of were I was going. Any...

Work in progress

1922 days ago by onehitwonder | 11 comments »

I began working on this in high school, but had to rush to finish in spring of senior year. I started with a Nakashima design for ideas then ran with my own vision (with a little guidance from my teacher). The entire piece was crafted by hand (with a little cheating here and there). As soon as I can gain access to a wood shop, I will do some touch-up work and finish polishing it. I have come a long way, but it is far from complete. Here is what I have so far… created in just over 2 semester...
