The old time woodshop journals #35: From hearts, to trees, to hands

11-13-2012 09:31 PM by jjw5858 | 9 comments »

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...

THE BLANKET CHEST PERSUASION

10-16-2013 03:37 AM by TDog | 1 comment »

QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect. 1. The Toy Box2. The Family Blanket ...

Les Paul 2011 #1: Starting up

12-10-2011 09:50 AM by Josh Sollows | 3 comments »

Alright, well, I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now but never got around to it. I did this guitar last year in 2010/2011 and I figured I’d show you how I did it. So, these stages here are the initial stages of building this guitar. The back of the guitar is mahogany, and the front is tiger maple. I used a pre-created template to layout the pickup holes, and neck pocket After routing out the neck pocket and pickup areas, the block of wood I started with, ...

carving "Thunderbolt" #1: The idea & the rider

01-18-2011 05:29 AM by mpounders | 9 comments »

I have had an interest in automata (A self-operating machine or mechanism) since making a limberjack machine a few years ago. I have wanted to create a machine that incorporated caricatures that I carved and that would be fun to look at, an animated toy of sorts. A well-known carver I admire, Lynn Doughty, suggests that you should strive to make your work stand out, to attract attention, and draw people in. So, I felt a carving that moved would be something different, something that makes yo...

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...

Turkey Foot Cane

01-31-2014 11:03 PM by mpounders | 7 comments »

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....

Texas Cane

03-01-2013 05:14 PM by mpounders | 11 comments »

I got a NEW lathe! So now I can turn longer shafts for canes and other things. Really pleased with it. Here is a cane I’m doing as a commission, with an antler handle and a lot of carving on the shaft. The designs are based on leatherworking patterns and will cover most of the cane. May end up having to keep it! I am working on a design for another lizard cane, a lady here in Arkansas may want a couple of canes, and a gentleman in Canada has contacted me about a Santa staff. Hopeful...
