Thorsen Table Challenge #12: Showing some more of my cards !

05-09-2007 07:01 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 23 comments »

I decided not to hold my cards to close to my chest, as Scott mentioned. I decided to show what I’ve been doing the last couple of days. I couldn’t resist doing some chiseling on this table. That’s the reason I did a downward cloud lift on the aprons, in order to fit in a carving. One down, three to go. This is about 4 hours of chiseling. A little more touching up, & it’ll ready for the finish.

Turkey Foot Cane

01-31-2014 11:03 PM by mpounders | 7 comments »

I’m working on a cane for my son-in-law’s father. He’s a fanatical turkey hunter and this is a surprise for his birthday in March. John provided a turkey foot as a model for me and I took pictures and enlarged them to get the foot to a size that would be usable as a cane handle. I also modified one of the claws to prevent having a piece sticking out that might get broken. I have a glue joint fight below that toe, so I have the grain of the wood running properly for strength....

Gamble House Rocking Chair #1: From Rough Wood to Looking Like a Rocker

06-03-2015 06:15 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...

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...

Exercises in Artisanship #30: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 1

10-18-2012 11:12 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

My beginning library of Woodright Shop DVD’s has grown rather quickly and an idea was sparked by the pile of 5 cases with the sixth soon on it’s way. I at first was excited to purchase some poplar for this project instead of the ole faithful pine…but todays prices jarred my wallet full of common sense…lol. If your not selling these projects friends this stuff can get costly so pine it is! So here is the fun idea for these next few installments of Exercises in Artisanship…...

Small stuff for Christmas

12-16-2011 05:58 PM by mpounders | 7 comments »

Since I have completed all my major holiday committments, I have just been working on fun things! I am getting some parts for Christmas to re-model my power honer, so I have been cutting out some disks and doing some glue-ups to prepare for that. I plan to make the full 4 disk Burke style sharpener and I hope to use the existing motor I have, but it may not have enough power. I carved this small angel from a Shawn Cipa pattern for a lady at church and will do a larger version as a tree topper...

The Creche (manger) #4: The Star of Bethlehem - Done!

03-27-2012 08:28 PM by greg48 | 4 comments »

Well, I came up with a solution for paring the star and here is how it came out:.first I cut out the pieces to their overall dimension and cut 45’s on the intersecting ends,....then I pin nailed some strips to aid in the glue-up,....laid out the cut-out and facet lines, cutting the exterior on the b.s. and planing the edges to the mark out lines,....glued up the shaped pieces using some high tech clamps,.. ..using the cut off pieces as wedges, I was able to secure the star while pari...

My Welsh Spoon Brit-Style #1: Sanding

05-06-2017 02:25 PM by TracyT | 17 comments »

As a very, very new carver, I looked for a project idea to hone my skills. I fell in love with the beautiful Welsh Spoon that the Brit did, and thought I’d try it based on the great tutorial that he posted. This is my modest thank you to all of you that take the time to share your knowledge. This is made from a piece of cottonwood bark that I found on a beach here in British Columbia. Cottonwood bark has gorgeous burls in the grain but it can be problematic if you discover a ...
