Lamp Mounting Plates Day 3: The carving.

12-05-2012 01:06 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

More progress on Jim’s light plates has occurred lately. Here’s the update: I took the piece of siding that he gave me and measured out where the crests and valleys were on the back of the wood and went to town with chisels and Kröktskaft. Boy, aspen sure does pare nice and smooth with little effort (well, sharp tools help too): In short order I had carved out a nice groove on each piece that fit perfectly onto the siding: With the exception of the fact that my plan ha...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #49: Awakened In Your Gobi

02-23-2009 02:14 AM by frank | 5 comments »

Awakened In Your Gobi ....it seems as if i am teller of tales that bears your beauty forth,why am i so woodly anomic when all your warmth of hue surrounds me,culler of the art that comes from hand-tooling your existence of being,while faith-fully noted are the cracks of character that provide story…. ....planed from the start by gouges that wrought some sense of stability,your spoken desire was what soon caught the attention of my ears,and what if my hands started breathing wi...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #47: Occulation of the Wood

01-11-2009 04:30 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Occulation of the Wood ....what is this shadow that transverses your mind, when you look at wood? One table top of rock maple that I am presently working on and hope to have done by the end of March. Many of the details as to how and what I am going after have not yet been fully worked out//worked in, but that’s only a matter of time as I listen to what the wood would say to me. ....and…. Things not known at this point: 1.)—no-name…. 2.)&#...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #2: Day 2 Late again!!!

01-14-2011 07:14 AM by Mark Shymanski | 6 comments »

I used to hate students like me who know when the course starts but still show up late, mea culpa. I was 15 minutes late again today as I had to go into Winnipeg for my uncle’s funeral today. Usually we can drive in and out in good time but today the roads were terrible, with semis, pickups and cars littering the ditches along the Trans Canada… anyway we got there and back safely although at one point I thought I was going to have to attend a smash up on a bridge, but fortunatel...

My First Workbench #34: Slice and Dice the new Leg Vise Chop

08-27-2013 10:08 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Finally got a chance to sweat in the shop….I mean work in the shop today. Wisconsin may not be as hot as Texas (ever) but we sure get some humid days and being inside the garage, even with a box fan going full blast is good recipe for weight loss! Today’s first order of business was to start crafting a carving mallet so I could do the details on the leg chop. I don’t have one and quite frankly, I just think they’re cool. But…I’m going to take a non-tr...

The Perfect Fit (a chisel storage short)

08-05-2015 06:38 AM by Jorgearaujo | 2 comments »

Well after restoring the Clearcut chisels I figured they and the rest of my chisels should have a special place to call home. I took one of the drawers under my workbench and made it my chisel drawer. Check out this little video I titled THE PERFECT FIT. View on YouTube Thank you.

My First Workbench #12: Day 12: More mortises.

08-24-2012 01:36 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

(Only one picture for this short update today so I decided to post it here too!) Nothing special today, just more working on chopping mortises and 3 more tenons…lots of sawing. Lots. But I have to say I’m seeing a little improvement in my abilities to feel when the wood is telling me I’m going to fast or off angle on the saw strokes. It’s getting easier to saw too—-I’m not putting near as much pressure as I did on the first cut of this project. It f...

Clearcut Chisels Restoration

08-04-2015 01:32 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

Well it’s official I am hooked… restoring old tools is my new obsession. This time I found some old chisels, Clearcut brand, ever heard of it? Me either. I also couldn’t find much information on the brand online, I did find one post that mentioned they are from Montgomery Ward but I can’t be sure of that. No matter the steel feels good. Guess we will see if it holds an edge. I also shot a video of the restoration which can be viewed here.View on YouTube As you can ...

"Singing Mallets" --by RusticWoodArt

04-25-2007 12:48 PM by frank | 5 comments »

Singing Mallets ....and so tis in this the moment of my arising, that the spewing forth of motley coloratura comes weaving heavens rhyme, where i am justified a vision quest of inseeing sensationalizing, that comes to me bearing up beyond my scope of cosmic time…. And so I thought that today I would post a couple of photos of some of the mallets that I have made. These are some that I now use and they, like the ones before them, will in likewise manner be retired with new ones to ...

"Waunderin' Characters of Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

11-01-2007 01:42 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Waunderin’ Characters of Wood ....my time is the culmination of the work of a universe, where were it not for others of me singing verse, i might even think that i was the only teller of rhyme, but as so often happens to actors in fields of mime, —-words fade and my hands give in to waunderin’ characters of wood…. So put your mind boots of imagination on and here we go once again, in the dusk of a fading sun, into the throes of cacoethes…. ....’...
