New Project, new wood species.

01-10-2012 06:01 PM by LelandStone | 0 comments »

Okay, so the wood isn’t really ‘new,’ I’ve just never had a chance to work it before! :P The local lumber warehouse carries all the usual suspects: Alder, Ash, Birch (one of my faves), Oak—White or Red, and Walnut. They’ve got a great selection of ‘exotics,’ too, but at north of $7 a board foot, a little out of my price range. However, they’ve also got a bee-yoo-tee-full selection of European Beech, for $2.96/bf! This stuff is G...

Building an Aircraft #1: Plans and Pieces

08-13-2015 01:14 AM by jase | 2 comments »

Hi all, I’ve recently started wood carving and had some questions on how I did it. I work on F-16’s and my woodworking mentor and friend finally showed me how he makes them so I thought I’d help explain it.

I went to google and typed “F-16 schematic” and selected the largest dimension phot...

So what's it worth?

05-04-2012 12:10 AM by scrimman | 3 comments »

For the longest time I’ve wondered how to answer that question ‘how much is it?’ How do you judge that? I’ve finally gotten down to the point where I’m going to have to just start being a little OCD and start writing it down. Thus far it’s been working ok; I’ve got a couple of celtic crosses I need to carve for a couple of weddings I’ve been invited to. Being that the wood, this time, was free I can concentrate on what it is I do to it…...

Videos #2: Rough Cutting

06-19-2012 12:03 AM by tyskkvinna | 7 comments »

Just a little video I shot today of the gantry router doing rough cutting on a little project. Maybe tomorrow I will finish it and show you what it eventually turns out to be. I had a long day today and wanted an easy and pretty quick project to work on so I grabbed this 3d model I had played with over the weekend.

Another basic coaster pattern. I use the straight lines to practice my “pull” cuts. The star bursts are done with a stab knife.

I haven’t got much done yet on the Celtic Knot carving. We’ve been up at our cabin, & there’s a lot of upkeep that hasn’t been done in the last couple of years, so please be patient with me.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is how far I’ve gotten so far.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I started getting sore fingers from this knife I’ve been using. So I decided to make something...

Just couldn't believe my eyes! Carvers - look at THIS!

08-20-2010 01:03 PM by Don Butler | 7 comments »

I got a message from my sister this morning with pictures from this site.She doesn’t know where they come from, but a few minutes search uncovered this: http://zuzutop.com/2010/08/amazing-pencil-carving-art-by-getty-dalton/ Another thing that popped up was this Japanese site with pencils carved, just in the wood, leaving the lead inside untouched. http://www.infofreako.com/jad/pencil/2kikko-e.html I’m blown away by this work, but I don’t think it’s a useful...
