In and out of the shop #1: Kane Carving

1866 days ago by JTRid43 | 3 comments »

Hello all. I am back…. Well…. Sort of. Okay, here’s the story. I finally got the chance to get back into the shop and start some projects for the farmers market. I was finishing up some built in shelves for a customer when my back went out. OH YES! It went way out. 3 ruptured disk L-3 L-4 and L-5. Stenosis of the L-5 S-1 vertebra with the disk at that same spot blown out are compressing the nerves of my left leg. Sciatic nerve for those of you who may not know is the main ne...

Pow-wow Dancer -painting in progress

1196 days ago by mpounders | 6 comments »

I have been painting on this guy for about a week and still haven’t got him finished! There are a lot of little details and it just seems to take a while. I hate not to be carving, but I really don’t mind the painting that much, at least not like some carvers do! It can really add to a good carving, depending on the subject or style of the carving and I learned to draw and paint a long time before I started carving. I use different painting techniques, but I’ll describe ...

Patterns from Photos

1709 days ago by KCKID | 3 comments »

Well I have showed off some of my carvings and now I would like to start an entry and open some dialoge on developing patterns from photos. I ran into a program that will take a photo and turn it into a line drawing where I can then use as a pattern. Has anyone else ever done anything like this?I plan on displaying a couple of relief carvings that I did this way in my projects.

Koa, anyone?

985 days ago by WordCooper | 1 comment »

Anybody in the Portland-Vancouver area looking for some rare Koa wood from Hawaii? I have a beautiful slab from Maui, about 57” long by 15” wide by just over 2” thick—almost 12 board feet of this rare and gorgeous wood. This is a section cut through the base of a branch so it includes some wonderful crotch grain. One significant check, which still allows two major cuttings—one of about 52”x5”x2,” and one of about 48”x7”x2...

Exercises in Artisanship #27: The spoon makers tote! PART ONE

667 days ago by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

Well friends I thought it might be time to get to a new project and one that could be of great use since I have been at all of this spoon making business recently. I am a few weeks away from venturing into some pretty nice woods in upstate NY filled with Apple, Ash, Cherry, Maple, Oak and a whole lot of other really nice materials to seek out and possibly get to haul back to the shop and use for spoon works! I thought…hmmmm?, a nice tote would really help for the trip, something that...

Practices in Spoonology: Part three

688 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Well I thought it might be best this evening to get to the shop and keep up with the spoon practicing and see where are am at with things. I felt good and energized after a fine meal of venison burger, potatoes and greens. I have to say that deer meat is a terrific source of rocket fuel and lucky for me I have no better source than my uncle Topper who lives in the cold hills of the upstate NY. When it comes to some well hunted eats there’s no better of a choice than Toppers freezer for some d...
