Roy's Mystery Mallet #3: Dressed and Ready for Work

03-12-2012 11:05 PM by pastorglen | 5 comments »

As promised, here’s the final outcome of Roy Underhill’s Mystery Mallet. As you can see, I shaped the handle a little differently than they showed in the magazine. I like the squared-off handle better. I also stained the head one color and then applied several coats of tung oil to the whole thing. Thanks, again, to venues like LJ, Roy Underhill, and the folks over at Popular Woodworking. My woodworking is better because of you all.

Intarsia Basics #4: Part 4 Coming Soon (Sorry)!!!!

05-03-2012 03:02 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

I just wanted to update on the status of the class and inform every one of the delay. For those of you that do not know, I had a misfortunate (stupid?) accident and broke a bone in my right hand a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping that I had progressed far enough beforehand that it would not affect the class. Unfortunately the bones are not healing correctly and it is taking longer for ir it to heal. I tried again tonight, but do not have enough dexterity or hand strength to sand while I...

Hi Everyone; I just got the go ahead to build a 17 foot dining room table.

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...

Hand Carved Sign #1: Pattern, Carving, Priming

10-04-2011 09:58 PM by MyChipCarving | 6 comments »

This is my first attempt at carving a sign. I’ve wanted to try it for quite a while. Our retreat center needed a sign by the road so this sign already has a home all picked out. Dimensions: 36” x 12” x 2”, basswood I know basswood isn’t the best exterior wood but seeing as it will be painted, I figured it should last many years as long as I give it proper care and maintenance. I created the pattern on my computer. Each letter stands 3” tall. The fo...

Also, there’s a great sense of satisfaction knowing that the pattern you are carving is one that you came up with on your own. Here’s an...

Carving a carving knife #1: First attempt to make a carving knife

10-22-2010 04:38 PM by PaBull | 11 comments »

My second oldest daughter needs a birthday gift and I have only days to complete it. Don’t you love those last minute projects? She is into carving, but only has the carving set with the “end blades”. So why not build a carving knife. So last knight I started with a block of pallet wood, a rod of 3/16 brass and a sawzall blade.The shape I was going for is shown here: I took a sawzall blade and cut it in half with a sheet metal cutter. (this stuff is hard to cut) After ...

Carving lingo: study-sticks, rough-outs, go-bys....

02-21-2012 08:54 PM by mpounders | 6 comments »

Good communication is important to the success of many things. But terms and acronyms used in one setting may mean something completely different elsewhere. I heard a lot of unfamiliar words when I first started carving and continue to broaden my vocabulary, thanks to friendly carvers around the world. It took me awhile to figure out that BLO referred to boiled linseed oil used by some as a finish! So I thought I would write a bit to explain a few terms used, that might be of benefit to a beg...
