Evolving Band Saw Project #4: More incorporation of random areas

09-28-2010 04:47 PM by wyeth | 0 comments »

I decided that the cuttlefish is attacking a fish as the wood looks a bit like a fish tail shape after I did some band saw outlining so I worked on giving more form to that area.The end of the wood has some finger-joint routing that seems to look OK. The area below the fishtail looks like a good place to shape some coral type formation.The eye of the cuttlefish is formed using 2 sizes of forstner bit on the drill press.The area below the cuttlefish seems to suggest the head of a fish ̵...

Evolving Band Saw Project #3: Developing the Cuttle Fish

09-27-2010 11:11 PM by wyeth | 1 comment »

I started by working on the body,tail and tentacles of the Cuttle Fish. The idea with relief carving is to create shadow patterns that make the objects appear more 3-D than they actually are. To be effective they have to be correctly lit – usually by unidirectional light from above and to one side. The final display situation for the carving needs to be kept in mind. Small changes in lighting will make a large difference in the final impact. I don’t want this carving to look to...

Evolving Band Saw Project #2: Bit of practice pine

09-27-2010 01:39 PM by wyeth | 1 comment »

From time to time I had done a bit of practice carving , pyrography and edge finger jointing on some scrap pine so I wondered if I could work this up into something to fit the underwater theme of the band saw project. The idea of a cuttlefish and its prey began to take a vague shape in my imagination. So I penciled in some outlines and started carving. Not very promising yet but things should get better.

Evolving Band Saw Project #1: What to do with an old wooden spoon?

09-27-2010 10:01 AM by wyeth | 0 comments »

I created this about a year ago as a first band saw box project. First I had 2 small boxes that looked somewhat like fish but were only large enough for a couple of keys or maybe rings. Then got the idea of joining them using an old wooden spoon. The tip of the spoon became the fin ( draw-pull ) for the larger drawer and recently I added a bit of polished copper wire for the other fish drawer. Now I have to think of some use for this thing or something to add to the interest. ...

A WOODTURNED RECIPE HOLDER EASEL. (CS1 Kitchen Challenge)

09-27-2010 01:42 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

This is not a brand new project. I submitted it, because of a request by MsDebbieP for the CS1 Kitchen challenge. I was out in the shop one day, & thought to myself, what can I make? I said, how about making a recipe holder easel for Barb’s kitchen. So I dug out some pieces of wood from my scrap bin, & proceeded with the project. I didn’t have a plan, but I knew what I wanted it to look like, so the first thing I made was the main spindle post. Then I ma...

Simple Step Stool

09-26-2010 02:59 PM by CanadianWoodChuck | 6 comments »

After recieving MsDebbies post this morning I thought I should take a few pictures of this step stool and enter the kitchen challenge. The step stool was made on the request of MBH as she is sligtly vertically challenged and couldn’t reach the upper cabinets in the kitchen. Since then it has become more of a utilty stool used mostly for painting.The plan was published on the Home Hardware site as a free download. I made it out of pine scraps that I had around the shop. The stool was...

a dry fit ! Let’s start with today’s inspiration: a peanut butter cookie, half of which was dipped in chocolate. Uh. Yum ! The “not-so-secret” secret drawer ;-) It’s got feet ! A shelf…. The top…. Got some band saw work, ahead of me, to cut out the fake tenons and wedges. Soon, though. Very soon. Thanks for looking :-)

Beginning of Toy Kitchen (Photo's Repaired) #1: The Beginning

09-22-2010 06:35 PM by spunwood | 2 comments »

My mom and dad wanted to get our daughter Beatrice a kitchen set, and I quickly suggested that we build one instead. Stephanie was also excited at the possibility of displaying it and taking orders at the craft fair coming up in October. So we began by looking up wood toy kitchens on google and chose the features and style that we liked. We shopped at Lowes for all the pine lumber. I would have liked to have used grooves and dado’s for joinery, but in the spirit of keepin...
