The old time woodshop journals #19: Rhythms of woodwork

08-02-2012 10:05 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

As I have stated a few times before I have only been at this wood working game for just over 2 years now. A few months into this journey I graduated up to some chisels and mallet simply trying to understand the elementary basics of paring down wood. I believe the first task was a very green horn lap joint followed by smashing a mortice in..lol. Maybe smashing is the only way of the untrained hands as they yearn to make masterpieces, only while seeing them in our dreams until we can put as man...

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 ...

Carved Backyard Bear #2: The Chickadees' have moved on.

05-11-2009 07:14 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 5 comments »

We’ve been watching the Bear for over a week now, & the little birds haven’t shown up. I think the bear didn’t meet the proper specifications, or the bird building code. I also believe the Robins, & Squirrels may have scared them away. It’s sitting too much out in the open, kind of low to the ground. I’ve heard of birds starting a nest, & leaving it for a different location.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You ca...

Large picture frame commission.

02-15-2008 10:41 PM by Roger Strautman | 8 comments »

In this blog I thought you lumberjocks would be interested in seeing the whole process that I go thru when doing this picture frame commission. This is the picture that the owner wanted a carved frame for. As you can see by the photo the picture is out of the frame and I was able to take the frame with me so I could make the new frame the proper size for the picture. The new frame will be 3’-6” +- X 6’-6” +- so this is as large a frame I will have did to date. ...

hand carved redwood bench #4: a smidgen of progress

08-25-2009 06:01 AM by kolwdwrkr | 10 comments »

Well we were able to put about 6 more hours into the bench project this weekend. The display cabinets have been consuming our free time, but I’ve decided to stop working on it at 5 and work from 5 to 8 on the bench. We still need to sand it all, screw it all together and shape the arm rests. It’s just sitting there and the mortises are what’s holding it together. I put the seat slats down onto it so I could test the comfort. I need to shape the front slat and radious al...

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...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #6: Carving drawer handles

01-17-2008 09:59 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

Yesterday afternoon, I shifted my gears into the carving mode I decided to make drawer handles, & decided that a small rose would look kind of nice. Actually, to tell you the truth, I had made that decision when first designing the box.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~First I picked out a piece of cut off, & drill 3 holes with my plug cutter. These plugs will later be used to hold the rose while caving, & also for fastening to the drawer front. ...
