Project idea - with a twist

960 days ago by MyChipCarving | 4 comments »

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 #1: Pattern, Carving, Priming

1053 days ago by MyChipCarving | 6 comments »

This is my first attempt at carving a sign. I’ve wanted to try it for quite a while. Our retreat center needed a sign by the road so this sign already has a home all picked out. Dimensions: 36” x 12” x 2”, basswood I know basswood isn’t the best exterior wood but seeing as it will be painted, I figured it should last many years as long as I give it proper care and maintenance. I created the pattern on my computer. Each letter stands 3” tall. The fo...
