My NEW Chip Carving book is ready!

9 days ago by MyChipCarving | 5 comments »

Hello LJ’ers,One week ago today I was picking up 2000 copies of my new book, Chip Carving Essentials, A Step-by-Step Guide to Successful Chip Carving. The finished product was boxed and ready to go! The pressman who ran my book was my first sale. He knew right away that his uncle would really enjoy this book. I loaded them into my truck and trailer and got home in time to unload and load up again and head to Carv-Fest for three days of classes. If you'd like to check it out, CLICK HERE!...

How-To Make Log Furniture #7: Make a Chuppah How-To

How do you incorporate logs into a wedding? It seems to be a growing trend – this is the third wedding project I’ve worked on. Please share things you’ve made for weddings by posting pictures below! If it’s a log item, I’ll share it on my FaceBook page with a back link to your page!

Skill Building #8: A Dovetail Tongue and Groove Plane

526 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 57 comments »

Last time I messed with the Stanley #444, the side walls of groove were pretty ratty. Not that they’d be seen, of course, but the product means the nickers aren’t sufficiently sharp. A little work on the fine DMT showed it wasn’t flat on the outer surface of either of the two nickers. I worked each just enough to get the surfaces flat.
