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 ...

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 ...

Spoon carvers diary #5: Something in the spirit of better days

04-16-2013 09:30 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

After the recent events of the Boston marathon in some way there is a feeling of guilt I have continuing to share ideas and projects involving woodcraft. But I also think of things this way, I am a musician and woodworker. Whenever there is some tragic thing as national as all of this is for everyone to endure as a country, I can only do what I do best to help anyone feel a little normal again. Even if it is just for ten minutes. I don’t understand this time we live in, it is pret...

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...

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...
