Carving face. #1: Carving face - part 1.

11-05-2013 09:28 AM by Snycerz | 1 comment »

This project is still in my workshop. I took this emocional face from an ancient sculpture “Death of Laocoon”. It’s not easy to show emotions in sculpture and keep of all anatomy in one piece ;) That’s why this one is taking me so long. Oak wood. Movie part 1. - Face emotionsMovie part 2. - Face emotions ...hope the third part will be the last one ;)

Grave Marker for Old Rusty!

03-13-2009 09:49 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 12 comments »

The same friend I had made the Gavel for, dropped by the other day. He asked me if I would carve Old Rusty’s name on this cross for him. Old Rusty had passed away one year ago on this very day, & he was missing his old buddy. It was quite a coincidence, Rusty died on my birthday in 2008. After I got started on it, I thought it would be nice to do a relief carving of Rusty. He was a Golden Retriever, so I asked my friend if he had any good pictures of Rusty. He didn...

Exercises in Artisanship #29: The spoon makers tote! Part Three and final!

10-02-2012 11:15 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

Hey friends, thanks for looking in again on what really is my final installment for this spoon makers tote! This piece went a little faster than I had originally thought it would go, but I had some time and inspiration so I went ahead with the flow of the tools. This is going to be much more of a practical piece to enjoy using, packaging some small tools, woods and spoons around. I left some tool marks with a fun and spirited opinion of wanting this work to look used and lived in. For me i...

New to the community and the craft. Hello everybody!

06-04-2011 05:50 PM by Ward Grant | 10 comments »

Hi all. What a fantastic village you all live in here. Very cool! I am new to carving and to your community. I love working with all the local woods available in the lower mainland. I have only transit for transportation so I scour the beaches and trails and river banks for pieces to call out to me to work with. I grew up in the north country and really miss seeing diamond willow. Are there any diamond willow stands in the GVA? I don’t desire to chop down any trees…I look ...

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 ...

The old time woodshop journals #23: Why I make spoons

08-22-2012 11:56 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

The shop is filled with a wonderful strong scent of fresh Cherry wood and the mission is on to evolve a cut branch into a country spoon. Very interesting this country spoon making is, so many great “spoonists” with their different styles and approaches but I suppose my greatest influence so early on is Peter Follansbee. His episode this past season with Roy Underhill in The Woodrigh’ts Shop truely captured my creativity and fascination to have a go at this kind of work. If y...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #4: A few more pictures

01-14-2008 08:26 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 15 comments »

I finished sanding the exterior portion of the box down to 320 grit. Then applied one coat of mineral oil. Boy did that make the grain standout. I used Mineral Oil because it has no affect on Barb’s allergies. Otherwise it would have to stay out in my shop for a month. The dimensions are, Height = 8” Width = 7” Depth = 4” I’ll add some beeswax, for the final coats. Now to finish making the drawer. The back & front will be entirely diffe...

Keeping track of my wounds: 13 and counting...

09-01-2008 12:06 PM by David A. P. | 6 comments »

I decided at the very start of my woodworking adventures to keep close track of any injuries I managed to incur, in part out of curiosity—knowing that it’s a hobby notorious for its danger, at least in comparison to most other hobbies—and in part because I want to identify where I go wrong, so I can address the problematic action(s).So far, I’m up to 13 cuts. Of these, the breakdown by source is as follows: 1, flush-cut saw. 1, paint scraper. 1, bow saw. 1, ch...
