hand carved redwood bench #3: more progress

08-17-2009 12:21 AM by kolwdwrkr | 10 comments »

Well ladies and gents here are some more progress pics. I think this may be the end for awhile. I need to start a new job and it will be taking up all my free time. So this project will be on the backburner unfortunately. Anyhow, the back rest is carved, as well as one leg. We still need to do some sanding and such, and I need to make tool marks on the left and right sides of the back rest. But I don’t want to do that until I run the tenons. Just so everyone know, redwood is not s...

Large picture frame commission.

02-15-2008 10:41 PM by Roger Strautman | 8 comments »

In this blog I thought you lumberjocks would be interested in seeing the whole process that I go thru when doing this picture frame commission. This is the picture that the owner wanted a carved frame for. As you can see by the photo the picture is out of the frame and I was able to take the frame with me so I could make the new frame the proper size for the picture. The new frame will be 3’-6” +- X 6’-6” +- so this is as large a frame I will have did to date. ...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #1: I finally decided to enter!

01-11-2008 02:51 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 9 comments »

I wasn’t planning on entering, but yesterday the bug bit me. I usually like to use the material I have on hand, & I couldn’t find a 2×4, so I decided to make a box. I drew up a pattern of what I wanted to make, & proceeded on my adventure. That’s all I’m going to show you today is a picture of the piece of wood I’m using. After all, this is top secret! Continued!

Progress on lizard cane

05-21-2012 04:28 AM by mpounders | 11 comments »

I got the shape all blocked out and carved. I ran into a few insect holes, but I filled them and a few checks where the limbs were with some epoxy putty. I decided I would carve the eyes rather than order some glass ones. I’ve been wanting to try a technique I’ve heard others mention using epoxy to give them a realistic look. Here you can see the size of the carving and stick. It is not a tall stick, but you can rest your hand on the end or hold it slightly below the top. ...

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...

Works in Progress #2: beatin' up my oak

06-24-2010 05:36 PM by tyskkvinna | 8 comments »

I’ve gone through and painted all of the pieces.. and have sanded about half of them. I’m amazingly unhappy with the cherry, overall. It’s just …... not what I wanted, I guess. It’s very flaky? Moreso than the other cherry I’ve worked with. Guess I can’t complain – I got it for free out of a burn-pile from a cabinet maker, so obviously it wasn’t a “great” piece of wood to start. Here is that piece of oak again. Re...

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…...
