The old time woodshop journals #19: Rhythms of woodwork

08-02-2012 10:05 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

As I have stated a few times before I have only been at this wood working game for just over 2 years now. A few months into this journey I graduated up to some chisels and mallet simply trying to understand the elementary basics of paring down wood. I believe the first task was a very green horn lap joint followed by smashing a mortice in..lol. Maybe smashing is the only way of the untrained hands as they yearn to make masterpieces, only while seeing them in our dreams until we can put as man...

Santa Bottle Stoppers

10-16-2011 05:16 PM by Amcarver | 3 comments »

This year’s Christmas Gifts will consist of a bottle of wine and one of these hand carved bottle stoppers. Each one will be a little different but all will be holding a bottle of wine (some hidden behind them) and all will appear a little tipsy. I am carving as many as I can before Christmas. I’ll paint them as a group just before the big day.

Mandolin build #3: Prep work, carving profile

10-18-2015 08:46 PM by BJODay | 8 comments »

There are different ways to carve the front, (sound board), and the back of the mandolin. Some shape the outside first. Others start with the inner surface. You can use chisels, gouges and finger planes, or side grinders and sanders. I’m going to work the outer surface first. I’m going to try using a sanding wheel on my drill press. Before starting, I need a guide to know when I have the shape close. The plans have profiles printed on them. I cut the profile out, glued it to so...

Collapsible Castles, my first

01-29-2011 12:47 AM by MasterSergeant | 3 comments »

Being new to the “blogging” stuff here I go. Let me start out by saying I am new to woodworking and my goal is to learn how to 1. use my used/new woodworking equipment safely and efficiently and 2. learn how to cut/carve/sculpture wood into beautify/functional items. I want to be able to complete the interior trim work on the house my wife and I just built. I wanted to learn how to use my new Jet 18” band-saw first and foremost. I just completed a pretty neat little ...

Gun Stock Carving # 3 #1: A daisy BB gun stock

01-11-2012 06:35 AM by Jimthecarver | 8 comments »

My father-n-law sent me his BB gun stock for practice. Although the wood in these stocks are very soft it had its challenges nevertheless.After scribing the design on the stock I began to carve inside the banner area to relieve it so the banner looks correct and raised.After that i began on the banner itself, relieving the outter edge and making the folds more apparentThen I started stippling the area that was relieved inside the banner. Finally it was time to start on the gator and releave ...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #2: The solution to keeping cost low (in my situation)

03-14-2017 04:55 PM by Questtut | 3 comments »

I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...
