Texas Cane

03-01-2013 05:14 PM by mpounders | 11 comments »

I got a NEW lathe! So now I can turn longer shafts for canes and other things. Really pleased with it. Here is a cane I’m doing as a commission, with an antler handle and a lot of carving on the shaft. The designs are based on leatherworking patterns and will cover most of the cane. May end up having to keep it! I am working on a design for another lizard cane, a lady here in Arkansas may want a couple of canes, and a gentleman in Canada has contacted me about a Santa staff. Hopeful...

A Rustic New England End Table Explained By Derek Skapars Expert Author Derek Skapars No matter where you live, or what you do for a living, each and every one of our lives includes furniture. We sit behind a desk, eat dinner at the kitchen table, and empty the contents of our pockets in the night stand draw at the end of the day before we climb into bed. There are numerous variations and many different styles of furniture. My focus is rustic furniture and through examining t...

Celtic clock transformation #1: Celtic clock transformation #1:

12-31-2014 11:31 PM by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 4 comments »

Started this project over a year ago. The wood is Ancient kauri, I bought it for it’s neat history knowing nothing of it’s carving characteristics. It was going to be a clock, but during the final part of cutting in the celtic design the side of the block cracked. I was going to toss it, but s friend said to hold on to it and look at it again later. Now it’s later and I have an idea, it’s weird I promise. During this process, the fragility of the wood al...

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 ...

"Behind Blue Eyes" #4: Eye brows and base

10-02-2011 06:22 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

It took a bit, but I think I finally have the eye brows like I want them. I carefully drew them out and measured and researched them and did a bunch of thinks before I started cutting wood. I used a really small v gouge and carefully cut them in, making sure the hairs pointed properly. And I didn’t like it….didn’t look right, was too dark. So I tried my bristle sander and several other things to fix it up. I finally took knife in hand and cut them off and started over. I had...

not so Koshuo Bench #3: Bench Seat Taper

05-13-2012 03:54 AM by AKSteve | 0 comments »

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 ...

Green Man #1: The beginning

08-28-2007 04:47 AM by Buckskin | 5 comments »

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...

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...

Green Man #2: Update

09-10-2007 09:22 PM by Buckskin | 8 comments »

Here is an up date on my Green Man. I am not sure exactly how many hours are involved at this point I think around 18 and I still have a long way to go. Not exactly knowing what I am doing is aiding the slowness. This is a huge learning experience for me. One shaving at a time.
