Airbrushing my Birger Sandzen-Inspired Carving for the Tilt-Front Laptop Computer Desk

2482 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 16 comments »

I’m in the midst of finishing up a project I have really enjoyed. Sure, it has taken me two times the hours I bid, but I am happy with the result. Actually, it has come out better than I expected, which is always a nice surprise. This is a functional-art piece I wish I wasn’t selling, to be honest. But, I have already spent all of the down payment. So, giving the money back is not possible, so the customer will get her desk. There have been a few pieces I wish I could ha...

Collapsible Castles, my first

1278 days ago by MasterSergeant | 3 comments »

Being new to the “blogging” stuff here I go. Let me start out by saying I am new to woodworking and my goal is to learn how to 1. use my used/new woodworking equipment safely and efficiently and 2. learn how to cut/carve/sculpture wood into beautify/functional items. I want to be able to complete the interior trim work on the house my wife and I just built. I wanted to learn how to use my new Jet 18” band-saw first and foremost. I just completed a pretty neat little ...

Tools I make (sharpening stones, planes and irons) #2: Just a little wood, I have 2 loves wood and steel (wood most).

2326 days ago by Daren Nelson | 12 comments »

I have not followed up on my plane making series as I promised, sorry. This is an addition, but not very much wood related either. I hope no one feels it is too off subject. Another jock (zebrano) posted a knife handle and sheath he made as a project, it prompted me to blog this knife. EDIT: THERE IS PLANE IRON INFO ADDED AFTER THE KNIFE I made this for my brother. He is left handed and there is actually a right-left handed sushi knife. He lives on a boat (50’ Hatteras motor yacht...

SPOON CARVING #2: Regarding wood slection

1113 days ago by Spoontaneous | 6 comments »

I had posted the following in the first part of the ‘blog’ (comment section) and someone was kind enough to suggest that it might be easier to find posted as a new segment/addition. Now that I have been educated, I will post the upcoming tools discussion as Part 3 and the step-by-step as future segments. A little bit about wood selection: For NON-functional spoons the choice in wood is completely open, although there ARE considerations. If you plan to carve in great deta...

Evolution of my router planer #7: Version 1.2c (had to tweak it again)

1086 days ago by TZH | 5 comments »

Found out the trex clamps I talked about in my last version (http://lumberjocks.com/TZH/blog/24588) weren’t strong enough to withstand the pressure exerted by the bolt going through, plus didn’t hold the sled rigidly enough (too much diagonal movement). So, back to the drawing board. Figured a clamp should function like a clamp no matter what the design is, so I used 2×4’s for the stationary clamp (first photo) and 2×2’s (oak – second photo) for the mov...

"Methods to My Madness: Designing and Carving a Cane" #2: Handle Designs

1358 days ago by mpounders | 4 comments »

So the shaft portion of the cane has been selected. The over all height of the cane will be measured from the highest part of the handle to the tip of the shaft, so it is important to include all of these elements when sizing the cane, always remembering that is easier to cut the cane shorter than it is to make it longer. A normal measurement used for canes is typically from the floor to the bend of a person’s wrist. I like my canes a little taller and usually add 2-3 inches to the meas...

Wood Carved Jhoola

1189 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 27 comments »

I just finished carving this unique indoor India swing bench, for a customer, it is also known as the Oonjal or Jhoola. This type of swing bench is not readily available without an overseas order. These types’ of wooden carved swings were used by Kings in their palaces and were considered a sign of royalty and are still considered even today. This type of furniture is a wooden swing with brass chains suspending it from the ceiling of the inside of their home. I glued together three plan...

Playing Around with Carving #8: Mads Inspired Spoon Horse

1084 days ago by WayneC | 22 comments »

I’ve been playing with spoon carving and thinking that being able to use a spokeshave and drawknife will speed the shaping of the handles. I have clamped the work to my carving bench with some success, but Mads's shave horse has inspired me to think about making a similar solution. I really do not want to tackle a full sized shave horse at this time and I did some thinking about how I could come up with something to use on my carving bench. I am thinking of making a jig simil...

Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #8: Lesson 4: Pattern Transfer

1233 days ago by MyChipCarving | 16 comments »

Lesson 4: Pattern Transfer The goal of pattern transfer has got to be to get the pattern on the wood as quickly, easily, and accurately as possible. That should be our goal. In this video I’ll show you three methods for pattern transfer. The first two methods work fine and I used them exclusively for many years. But they are slower, more difficult, and not as accurate as the third method – which is using the Pattern Transfer Tool. I suppose you can tell which method I pre...
