I favored this video on my Youtube channel,I thought my fellow LumberJocks might like to see how they turn wood in Hawaii.
Its been about 21 days since the ole heart about gave out on me and I thought it would be good to give a small thanks to the ICU nurses that helped in the healing process.As some of you may know after open heart surgery its a booger to get around….but I been taking it easy and doing a little carving.I need to make 4 spoons, I am working on the third spoon now…...I thought adding a single heart to signify my personal thank you for helping heal my heart.I hope its not to cheesie,Tha...
Howdy everyone, I thought I’d post a few projects that I’ve had to put on the back burner for a while. The first one is on the back burner simply because I’m not sure what to do with it! If you folks have any ideas on what to do with it, I’d love to hear it! This is a solid oak hand hewn barn beam that is about 5 or so feet tall. I don’t want to make a bench out of it. I think it should be a centerpiece someday. I’d make a manltle but I don’t ...
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 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!

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....
Here is a time lapse video of me carving a chair leg, in real time it takes me 16 hours. In this time lapse video it is only 1 min 47 seconds, man I wish I could carve that fast in real life. Here is the video link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtzfpNueQCM I’m almost done with the 8 chairs that go with the dinning table I made a few months back. Here is a link to the table The first leg took me about 40 hours including a clay model, after a few legs I got my time down to ...
The latest snow storm fast approached and sadly it was a hellish mix of heavy wet snow just perfect for falling many limbs and trees that had been loosened up by hurricane sandy. As I posted my Kuksa blog I was warmed and inspired by all of my LJ friends but soon enough the sounds of various cracking branches giving forth from the weight of the wet snow was an alarming sound throughout my yard. One after another as the evening moved on. I tried to ignore such sounds but there was no way my...
