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...
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...
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 &...
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...
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...
This woodworker has done some amazing carvings
Just thought I would post some pics from a trip to the historic old town of Vigan that myself and my girlfriend did a couple of years ago. If you,re a lover of old buildings and their furnishings then Vigan needs to be on your to do list. Vigan is a heritage listed town with an long history being part of the Manila/aculpolco galleon trade, Founded around 1572 and was one of the first towns in the new Spanish colony to have its own Cathedral, St pauls built in 1574 and the town was almost des...
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.
