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!

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...

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #5: "Grind & Sand and Grind & Sand"

04-05-2015 10:51 PM by Dennis Zongker | 15 comments »

Removing approximately 200 pounds of solid African Mahogany was pain staking. Setting up a plastic tent and wearing enough face and body gear to cure Ebola. lol When starting out it took four men to move the base and now two men can move this coffee table base. One of the dumb things that I did was take off the guard to one of my grinders so that I could get into the concave section of the lower legs. Then I hit a snag and the grinder pulled me in and grounded up a couple of my fingers, ma...

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...

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. ...

Les Paul 2011 #1: Starting up

12-10-2011 09:50 AM by Josh Sollows | 3 comments »

Alright, well, I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now but never got around to it. I did this guitar last year in 2010/2011 and I figured I’d show you how I did it. So, these stages here are the initial stages of building this guitar. The back of the guitar is mahogany, and the front is tiger maple. I used a pre-created template to layout the pickup holes, and neck pocket After routing out the neck pocket and pickup areas, the block of wood I started with, ...

carving "Thunderbolt" #1: The idea & the rider

01-18-2011 05:29 AM by mpounders | 9 comments »

I have had an interest in automata (A self-operating machine or mechanism) since making a limberjack machine a few years ago. I have wanted to create a machine that incorporated caricatures that I carved and that would be fun to look at, an animated toy of sorts. A well-known carver I admire, Lynn Doughty, suggests that you should strive to make your work stand out, to attract attention, and draw people in. So, I felt a carving that moved would be something different, something that makes yo...

hand carved redwood bench #1: The materials, site, and thoughts

08-09-2009 07:36 PM by kolwdwrkr | 5 comments »

I’ve been building a fence here at the house I’m renting (see blog). I ended up getting 2 sections out of one board as opposed to the 1 section I originally thought so I figured I’d use some of the material for a couple of projects. The first one is this bench, the second will be a carved screen door. This project is going to be a little tricky because I don’t really have “fresh” materials, nor do I have the thickness’s I would buy if this was goin...
