Exercises in Artisanship #18: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 1

06-20-2012 10:49 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Hello everyone, an extremely humid day today with around 82% humidity and 95 the high temp, but somehow the spirit of an evening of creating was to be had….lol. My shop has little more than a fan or heater….so this was going to get warm…lol This is a project that I have been wanting to do for a while now. I have always enjoyed the extreme creativity of the Rennaissance period and I thought it would be a real challenge and adventure to have a go at my version of a trestle ...

Handcrafted Country Carvers Throne PT 2

02-08-2013 10:10 PM by jjw5858 | 9 comments »

Well friends, it has been one cold temperature spell the last few weeks here in my shop as you may have realized from past blogs. I finally got a chance to tend back to my main project, something new to me as I have never created a seat of any kind before. I have found the process a lot to learn regarding proper pitch/splay when boring in the legs. It is really nothing all that complicated all the while nothing to get careless with either. Soon the time approached for me to address my i...

Chainsaw Carver new to the site

08-04-2008 10:26 PM by CARVINGLIFEdotCom | 12 comments »

Hi All, I’m a new member here, so I figured I’d post a bit about myself. I’m a wood carver from New Jersey in the USA, and I’ve been carving full time for a little over 4 years. I have a small retail store where I sell my work, and I’m just now starting to explore selling my carvings online. A new project for me is starting up carvinglife.com. Carvinglife has been a dream of mine for a while, after so many people have asked “how do you do that wit...

Countersink From Screwdriver Bit

11-19-2015 08:26 PM by Tom Howbridge | 1 comment »

Using an old driver bit I made a counter sink by cutting of the ends and grinding a blunt point on one end, then I filed a flute along the ground edge, I used a cheap bit as its a lot easier to work with and sharpen but a good quality bit may hold a better edge. I found it worked really well with an impact driver a drill driver, high speed low speed, it worked quite well even for large headed screws, dry for yourself to see if you can create one just like mine or even better ! WATCH THE...

By the second cup I was wide awake and off I went.The air compressor is fully charged and the Shofu rotary tool is serviced and ready as well. I began by stripping the rest of the finish off of the emblem so I could detail it. After all the finish was removed I then detail...
