My carving adventure begins!

12-21-2012 02:51 AM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

My lovely bride got me a book and two chip carving knives for my birthday on Tuesday. I have to say, I’m pretty darn excited. She got me Wayne Barton’s Complete Guide to Chip Carving have read it cover to cover already and today made my first cuts! First up, I found a piece of basswood I bought at Michael’s for another project and never used. Perfect. It’s only 3” x 3/8” x 24” so not exactly an ideal size, but I figured for the first go, why no...

Exercises in Artisanship #33: Exercises in Artisanship #32: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 4

11-19-2012 11:06 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

The temperatures here are starting to show us some fall weather finally. Things in the air seem somewhat regulated which I prefer for working in my unheated shop. A steady 45-55 degrees makes me enjoy the heavier work more wether it’s sawing some big cherry pieces or hewing down stock for future wooden ware. I enjoy some of those certain days when the sun stays in more than not, it sort of provides me the feeling of wearing my favorite flannel shirt and heading off into that zone so many o...

Project idea - with a twist

01-05-2012 09:25 PM by MyChipCarving | 4 comments »

This looks like a fun project. The idea is from American Woodworker. To make it more chip carve-able, I was thinking about not drilling the large holes in all the squares and then chip carving those surfaces. That along with the cut off corners would make a really cool piece. What do you think? Step-by-step instructions are found here – http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2012/01/03/ws-wiffle-ball.aspx?utm_source=AWNL&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=AWNL...

Hand Carved Sign #2: painted and installed

I used an imitation gold leaf considering the price of real gold. I’m satisfied with the sign and hope it creates a warm welcome to all who come to Red Barn Retreats. Here’s the view from the road. Is your driveway longer than mine? :-)

Here are the steps to finish your plate. 1. Remove all leftover pattern lines. The following video ...
