Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.
Here is the 3rd part of making a face relief. I’ll not write to much, just enjoy the short movie ;) MOVIE
Im making a sign for my dads new giant shed that hes turned into a pool and darts room for the ‘men’ of the family sorry the pics are poor quality !!
Good day is a day with good work. This time i want to show some of projects with carved letters. This kind of work needs a few things:- time- patient- sharp chisels- patient- certain hand- patient, patient, patient…The fun thing in this artcraft is that, there is no place for mistake. If one move will be done badly, then all letter is gone. The edges of letter must be done perfectly. It’s a lot of work to make your hand, moves so precisely, but it can be done. This project is a...
This project is still in my workshop. I took this emocional face from an ancient sculpture “Death of Laocoon”. It’s not easy to show emotions in sculpture and keep of all anatomy in one piece ;) That’s why this one is taking me so long. Oak wood. Movie part 1. - Face emotionsMovie part 2. - Face emotions ...hope the third part will be the last one ;)
The desire to make my first hand plane came out of my desire to fix my shooting board. It’s an essential item in my tiny apartment workshop, but shortly after making it, I realized it wasn’t accurate enough. The back beam of the shooting board was not a perfect 90 degrees, but it was off enough to make an impact especially for stock wider than a couple inches. To make tapered shavings of the beam to compensate for my flawed build, I needed some type of shoulder plane. I wasn...

Found a few boards to use. Got the one 1×6x60” cut down into three boards. Glued up into a panel, and then flattened with a couple handplanes. I have a large, plastic tub sitting under the bench, to catch a few shavings Between the top, and a pine shelf, it got full kind of fast. Sawed a couple found 2×4s into some leg stock. Plan (Plan, I have a plan??) was for a notch about halfway up the legs, to house a shelf. Grabbed a small saw, and knocked off a corne...
For my workbench i needed a tall stool for more accurate work and just a place to rest. This is a descripition on how i made this project. Searching LJ i found these two fine projects:- Having a fascination with all-things-Japanense (having both worked in a sushi restaurant and done karate for several years) these Singer-songrwriters chairs by Junji impressed me.- This post on shop stools by shipwright described a interesting method for dying oak black with steel wool dissolved in wineg...
