Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #1: The Block with an Aussie touch

08-04-2014 02:09 AM by icemanhank | 5 comments »

Hi all, My woodworking club has a competition each year called ‘The Super Foot’ and entry costs a small fee and all entrants get a piece of wood equivilant to 12×12 x 1” (even though Australia is a metric country) to make whatever they can dream up. You cannot use ANY other timber than the super foot but using fittings and assorted other non timber items is allowed. I will post some of the finished items next month after judging as there are normally some real...

Traditional Chinese Jack plane

05-25-2014 10:52 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Start with a chunk of oak. This is Red Oak, I think. and layout a few lines. A 45 degree one for the iron to bad on, and another for the wedge to press against. Layout some other lines. Where the mouth is, and where the “eyes” go. The Eyes are the two points that hold the wedge in place. Ahead of them is the escape,emt area where shavings are supposed to exit. Like this. Then the chopping begins with the idea of making a hole all the way through. Then ...

Scoop Carving #2: Starting to shape the scoop

11-17-2010 05:56 PM by Rustic | 6 comments »

Now that we have the rough out, we can begin to shape the scoop. Don’t mind the hole in the scoop this piece is for reference only after we have the general shape that we want I took it over to the drill press and bored a 5/8ths inch hole to my desired depth Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, was just trying to get the best shot of the hole.The plan calls for a 1/4 inch #5 spoon gouge to carve the hole. (I don’t have one yet, so I used my dremel) This is ...

Coat of Arms commission #4: Another fine job completed!!

08-03-2007 12:22 PM by Roger Strautman | 19 comments »

I finally completed the carving. I talked the customer into leaving the carving marks instead of sanding them out. I explained that by leaving the carving unsanded the cut facets would throw the light and your eyes would be drawn to it, also by sanding one wouldn’t know if it was a cast reproduction or hand carved because the surface was to be painted. At any rate pleased customers and client. The cabinet company told me that they were going to get pictures of this carving completed and...

Just for fun - Horned Owl

02-25-2011 04:13 PM by David Craig | 18 comments »

Recently, I read a blog by littlecope entitled Make Something!. Apparently Mike, on occasion, does something just for the spirit of it, just to have fun (whatever that is). It has been a hectic week and haven’t had much shop time, but I did find a few hours in the middle of the week in which I could do a little something. So I thought I might see what this “Fun” thing was all about. I have a vast collection of scraps, parts of branches of trees, broken furniture, basicall...

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.

The Tinker's Apprentice #1: A Beginning

04-03-2015 06:37 PM by droogs | 2 comments »

Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. Well, not the very beginning as that would entail going all the way back to a rather dreary wet Tuesday afternoon (and it was, I’ve checked) in an equally dreary and dank tenement building in Glasgow in 1968. For you dear reader I think perhaps that that may be a little too far and not very interesting and it would also be definitely far off the mark, as far as the subject of this tome to come is concerned, as could be. So, I guess I will begin s...
