The Perfect Day

08-27-2014 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

We all get them every once in a while. A day we consider to be 'perfect'.I am sure that description can very greatly from individual to individual, depending on peoples' goals, likes and taste. I think it even varies from day to day for everyone, as our lives and seasons are ever-changing as well.As I mentioned yesterday, I had an early eye doctor appointment that I had completely forgotten about. I had thought I posted the date in my Google Calendar, but apparently I did not, as ...

Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #2: Where no flowers grow during winter, The colouring.

03-20-2014 03:54 AM by koraile | 5 comments »

As you see, i have finaly come to the last part of the flower carving. I have the rough shape, and started the last part of sanding and detail shaping. I have always loved this part when it comes to these types of carvings, when at last the image i have had in my head takes form and gets Sharp, its like tuning a lense. The Picture finaly gets Clear, at this stage i have a hard time letting go. On this Project im working in the livingroom, you might have noticed :) Its cosy in my li...

Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #1: Where no flowers grow during winter..

02-16-2014 12:59 PM by koraile | 6 comments »

Crossing that invisible line from using traditional handtools to using powertools was a hard stepp for me. Growing up, my grandfather, my dad and uncels would get strikt if they ever saw sandpaper on the workbench vile carving. Bottom stamping or patterning ,and the use of sandpaper on carvings was considered something used by amatuers or someone trying to hide their errors, In the old woodcarving School we where not alowed to have sandpaper on the workbench at all, we got told to remove i...

Adventures in Tool Making #1: A Pair of Tenon Saws from a Disston Miter Saw - Cutting the Saw Plate

05-13-2013 02:27 PM by grfrazee | 5 comments »

I recently came back from spending a couple months in Kansas for work. On one of my weekend trips to an antique store, I found this lonely, broken miter saw tucked in a dark corner. You can see the broke handle, but you can’t see the horrendous rust on the back side. For $10, I decided to give it a new home. Of course, if the saw knew what I was planning to do to it, it might not have agreed to follow me out of the store. Since I already have a Disston miter very similar to t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1010: Something to Crow About!

04-14-2013 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

No job should be this much fun. I know I have said it before, and that some of you may think that I am exaggerating, but I find if anything, I tone it down. This past week and a half should be proof of that. In the last week and a half, I drew up seven new candle trays as well as a new project for the August issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and pretty much got all the prototypes finished. I still have one more tray that I didn’t even really show you yet, but I wil...

Checkerboard Project #5: Custom Carved Checkers Completed!

12-05-2012 04:23 AM by Retsof | 3 comments »

After several hours of carving with my Dremel tool over the last two days, I completed the custom checkers for this project. This was my first attempt at wood carving and with 48 sides to carve, it was a bit tedious, but not too difficult. My skills improved a good deal by day two and I took some extra time to go back over the first day’s checkers and make sure they were all pretty consistent. I took some video of the carving process to post as a separate blog entry once I have...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #2: Top is being mounted

09-27-2012 03:21 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...

Routed Sign Making #3: Wood removal with various routing bits

02-07-2012 11:08 PM by 3DBMe | 15 comments »

Now that the letters are outlined with a stop-cut we want to ‘rough out’ the material inside the letters. I use clamps to hold down the wood so that there is no movement while routing. The clamps are repositioned as necessary for a clear work space. 01 Clamp Wood ————————————————————————————————&#...

Layered epoxy inlay #5: A yellow eye and more carving

01-08-2012 05:56 AM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

Welcome back, I got the eye sanded down and it looks pretty cool except for the air bubbles. I knew I couldn’t get through without a few big ones. I rushed a little to much when I applied the epoxy. I will take care of it later.It will probably get filled in with another color but if I don’t like it I will just carve it out again. So while me and my family were out running around today we went by one of the big box office supply stores and I finally picked up some carbon pa...
