I got the limb 100% sanded, my husband is inlaying turquoise in the base, next we will drill the holes for the cord. The dark spot you can see on the base is where we applied sanding sealer, there is a bit of rot so this helps harden the wood and it also keeps the glue from staining the wood when we inlay the turquoise.
So right now I am just doing a little easy 6×6x6 box for my girlfriend. I’m using poplar and I am going to paint it and maybe felt the inside of it. She’s in college and recently joined a sorority and i thought I would cobble together a little box and paint with Tri-Sigma Greek lettering, colors and symbol. In this case I’ve chosen the sail boat over the skull and cross bones. More to come….
Hi everybody, I started learning wood carving. I have found that ther is not many websites that shows how to carve. So I did it….my way. In the process of wood carving, it’s not but working with wood fiber direction and sharpened gouges. And believe me, without the last point, forget wood carving. Half time of my wood carving courses, was atribuated to gouge sharpening. For this, I’ll start a blog soon. From a french book that my teacher gave me: “La...

I really like working with geometry and I love the challenge of making something that is symmetrical within a strong geometrically form. It sounds difficult but really it just means you start with a solid very rigid shape. Divided it into quarters or half’s, whatever. I know most of the people here on Lumberjocks may not be from Canada like me. I work in millimetres. So doing this I can get very exact. I hope you can still see some of the pencil marks. I just follow a template and I car...
Hi Everyone; I just got the go ahead to build a 17 foot dining room table. This going to be challenging, as it has three pedestal bases, which are heavily carved, have some japanning and gold leaf, in addition to veneering. The top will be veneered, include some marquetry, have a couple leaves, which will be stored in table structure. I have to admit, I’m wondering what I got myself into this time, but being the president of the imaginary; ”If It Ain’t Impossible, W...
Well here I am again. Joy to the world. LOL. I am working on the interior of the box and here is where it stands. The parts you see in the pictures are NOT attached in any fashion, in fact I have a piece of scrap pine holding up the back of the shelf that sits on the arch. There will be additions added that will hold this up, but ssshhhhh it’s a secret! I turned the columns out of wenge to match the handle and the base. Instead of turning a piece and then cutting it in half I took...
