Holly's Jasper #22: Holly's Jasper #22

22 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 2 comments »

Back to the big dog! Vertical jig mount (I made this jig to do the same area on my daughter Ravrn’s horse), the piece is so heavy I braced it, this also prevents any vibration even when I am whacking away with the #9, 1” gouge and the 18 oz. mallet. Now, just the fur at the base of the throat, blending the top and bottom lips and sanding will finish this section (sanding will be done when the rest is carved). When I come back again from the Green man, I wil...

Both ears, back of the head and neck are done! It took a while, but It was a challenge! Now onto the Sawcliffe Green man for a few days, then when I return to this, I will be setting up on a vertical jig to access the bottom of the muzzle and the lower jaw….then comes the detailing!

Holly's Jasper #1: Holly's Jasper #1

114 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 2 comments »

Drawings for my new commission, the bust of a Swiss mountain dog carved from walnut, life size. 14” nape to nose, and 10.5” from ear to ear, 12” tall. This will be my most voluminous carving to date, and my first time with walnut. Sunday I am planning the 3, 14”x 12”x4” blocks on a planner to start, then hand planning to a finish fit. As part of my new procedure to make the process of excess wood removal easier I will be band sawing on 4 sides to make the b...

Monster Dog House #1: Foundation and Framing

350 days ago by milbert | 4 comments »

After 4 years I decided my boxer dog, Raiden, needed a friend. After it was decided that his new friend would be a mastiff that could be 3 times (!!) his size, it seemed like a good idea to build them a dog house in the yard that would be big enough for both of them. The project was started with some general dimensions in mind but from there was pretty much off the cuff. It is completed so I will do multiple posts as time permits to show the process. Foundation: 2-3 inches deep of g...

Turning Photographs into Wood Art

482 days ago by Chris Mobley | 2 comments »

Some of my favorite projects to do is turning photographs into wood art. Each piece is unique and has special characteristics that mean something special to the customer. Taking something that a customer loves and turning it into artwork preserves that thing along with the memories that surround it. Some of the most common request that I get for these types of custom projects are vehicles, pets, homes, etc. I enjoy creating these because each one is custom and there is not another like...

The Wood Thief

513 days ago by Chris Mobley | 13 comments »

The Wood Thief – MaggieThis past weekend, I realized I was being robbed by the wood thief. I began several new projects for clients and friends. One piece in particular, has a significant amount of very small pieces of wood. Each piece is cut out, sanded, and put together like a jig saw puzzle. I turned around to do some sanding and when I came back to my work bench, I notice one of my pieces that I had just completed was missing. After looking under my workbench and around the area,...

Crib #2: Progress

710 days ago by Andrew | 0 comments »

The crib is almost done, and has been for awhile. I started work on the crib before joining lumberjocks. I have one more coat of finish to apply to the side rails. I ended up using a 1/4” roundover router bit for most of the edges. I’m not sure how my joinery will hold up. I am not setup to do mortise and tenons yet, and used glue and biscuits for the head and foot board. I think having the large ash boards running horizontally will keep everything stable. We will see how it ho...
