The background is cut on the chevalet Like ...
I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...
I just finished cutting the second inside panel for this treasure box series #2. This is for the inside of the lid.

The piece by piece process require to be precise The pieces are laid out in éclaté according to their final position I really like those detail pictures The 2 panels are done cutting, ready for shading in hot sand ...
Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...

This modular bookshelf is a great project for beginning woodworkers and you veteran woodworkers as well. Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself. Add some color and it makes a great display and shelving unit for a kids room. Give it a try.

For the face of this lion my goals are to make him more majestic by carving it closer to the traditional lion’s face verses the last three I made five years ago for the “Griffin End Table.” The lion faces for that end table had more of an Egyptian style to the face. By just making a few small adjustments can really make a big difference in the way the face can change. I altered the size of the eyes and located them outward approximately ¼-in. The main distinction is making the snout larger...
I really enjoyed my first Japanese style lamp so I thought I would try another: It is a box style lamp called the Persimmon. I didnt really like the approach to joinery (all butt joints) for this lamp so I made a few alterations to include rabbeted edges. I also used a handle from another project because I liked the style more. Here is the general idea: Here are the general steps for this session: 1. Made the base from mahogany using miter joints2. Made handle from mahogany us...
