"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...

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 ...

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...

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.

half carved Sandzen panel

11-15-2007 04:23 AM by Dan'um Style | 5 comments »

Started this wood panel when we lived in McMinnville, Tennessee. Stopped working on it, about the time the Carrier plant announced they were closing that facility and moving the work to Monterrey, Mexico. My job changed. .... a whole lot of travel. Sort of changed my hobby for a while. It took them 2 years to close that plant. Found this one tonight in the garage, Hadn’t seen it for 5 years, Will make this carving a priority after I get myself a new power carver.
