I don’t know, it just looked like an old style TV test pattern.
Another basic pattern, builds on the simple triangle—but it’s set up to cut across grains at different angles.
I added a simple border around this design, the sides are cut from the inside first, then the outside.
Wormy soft maple rocker ( Hal Taylor version ) #6: Stacks to rockes, extra width to back braces, jigs
Empty clamp rack…... hmmm what could that mean, where did they go? Here they are, adding the ” stacks ” to my rockers, and adding a little thickness to the bottom of the back braces While i’m showing the rocker Jig, I might as well show the back brace jig, both are 8, 3/4’’ pieces of mdf, I think I went a little over killbut hey if i’m building chairs for the next 30 yrs it was worth it! Arms glued next step is shaping top...
I based this on the form used in a cross pattern from myChipCarving.com
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.
