here is the start of my “attempt” at carving a fiddle top. I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter. http://picasaweb.google.com/roydahlgren/FirstFiddle#
The same friend I had made the Gavel for, dropped by the other day. He asked me if I would carve Old Rusty’s name on this cross for him. Old Rusty had passed away one year ago on this very day, & he was missing his old buddy. It was quite a coincidence, Rusty died on my birthday in 2008. After I got started on it, I thought it would be nice to do a relief carving of Rusty. He was a Golden Retriever, so I asked my friend if he had any good pictures of Rusty. He didn...
Finnished the Plaque! Well it is finnally done. I kept getting side tracked with other things around the house. This is going to a dear freind of my wife and mine. He has been running the center for the blind in Yuma,AZ for the last 25 years. He is retireing on June 27th. This startd as an “Unknown Wood / Unknown Project” and turned into a dedication. I want to thank everyone who helped this design come into being. Thank You. The Angel is made up of the following woods...
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…...
I’m still working on the fit of the head to the body, but he is mostly finished. I’ve never carved a dog before, but he doesn’t look too bad. I’m still working on the mechanisms to move his head and tail. This is how he will be positioned with the old fellow. I will probably have the tail on the side of the man, to avoid accidently breaking it while turning the crank. I need to pick up some supplies for an idea I have for the legs/feet on the whole contrapti...
A of this year i have been carving 30 years , its hard to belive but i done the math. At times i think ive already done some of my best work , But i will keep trying to improve
I Finally got some time to work on the Bench today ! woo hoo ! I scraped and sanded the top and bevelled the bottom half of the seat, I did it all manually with a smoother planer, block planer, and a japanese saw. The supports for the Cross braces for the Beams turned out nice, I love to do it by hand, it is so much fun! and it looks really nice, pictures tomorrow. I am building the Cross beams right now and I am not to sure about the design yet, I like it but it’s just not complete to ...
Given my recent success with my carving projects. Granted they are simple and beginner level which fits me at this point. However, I have decided to up the ante and create a whole new set of challenges for my self. The photo below represents about six hours worth of work in layout, rough out and finally picking up a gouge. The piece is about 6 3/4” by about 8 1/2”. It is being made from a piece of 2×12 SPF that used to be a leveling block under our TV set in our old ho...
Hi all. What a fantastic village you all live in here. Very cool! I am new to carving and to your community. I love working with all the local woods available in the lower mainland. I have only transit for transportation so I scour the beaches and trails and river banks for pieces to call out to me to work with. I grew up in the north country and really miss seeing diamond willow. Are there any diamond willow stands in the GVA? I don’t desire to chop down any trees…I look ...
