Howdy everyone, I thought I’d post a few projects that I’ve had to put on the back burner for a while. The first one is on the back burner simply because I’m not sure what to do with it! If you folks have any ideas on what to do with it, I’d love to hear it! This is a solid oak hand hewn barn beam that is about 5 or so feet tall. I don’t want to make a bench out of it. I think it should be a centerpiece someday. I’d make a manltle but I don’t ...
In the first couple of centuries or so A.D, The Germani tribe was dominant in northern Denmark. Following military victories, it was their tradition to hurl war booty into the nearest bog! Just near Odense, is a massive bog called Vimose containing a considerable quantity of these war booty sacrifices. In the 1860s excavations took place there and the peaty conditions preserved a large number of wooden objects including two wooden planes, probably made by the Romans, now known as Vimose...
Tihis is a walnut frame that I carved for one of my scetches. I only began to scetch three years ago…......I did a series of drawings from the older works of photographers of the American Indians back from the late 1800’s. This was my third scetch. I carved the inside of the frame by hand. It is two frames put together. the outer frame I cut the curves out on a band saw.
Before we start the next part of the proccess, I want to talk about the spoon contest. Here are the rules. 1.) Only one utensil will be given away each month.2.) Everyone has 5 guesses.3.)

(25th of each month) Verified by Molly and Odie. (even a nice steak bone couldn’t sway them, last time:)5.) You must correctly...

People in the Philippine archipalago have been carving simple images for millenia, but it was the arrival of the Spanish that really created the traditions and style that we see today. The simple “Bulol” carvings of the Cordillera have become the latest trend for interior designers in Manila and are believed to be either rice gods or meant to help in curing illness. Now they clog up the tourist traps of Baguio and the rice terraces, which I still haven,t seen after all this time.W...
I don’t know if I need a disclaimer or not on safety. So I will just add that, you need to take precaution when sanding and working around power equipment. Just be safe and know your tools… Now you have your pattern cut out, and you are ready to start sanding the shape. There is really no easy way to explain the process with out photos or videos. I will leave it up to you to read between the lines, (so to speak) There is 3 parts to a wooden utensil, 1.) the bowl. 2.) the nec...
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...
