Another basic pattern, builds on the simple triangle—but it’s set up to cut across grains at different angles.

Old School Mortised in Butt Hinge #3: The Montage: part one the Fitting

02-27-2010 04:59 PM by Waldschrat | 5 comments »

The Montage, (building in and mounting for those who are curious what “Montage” means) of a butt hinge door. I like to use the word Montage, because it comes off the lips easier and is a great general term used to describe, all “on site” work, mounting, fixing, cleaning up , whatever necessary to complete the build in. Just a personal thing probably… anyway, this is about mouting in, aligning and fixing the door with a butt hinge. In the last blog we covered...

Chip carving patterns #4: Wheat 1

Perhaps a good design for coasters that will hold those beer bottles! Keeping the knife in a near vertical position where the stems cross over will help to keep tear out to a minimum.

Office printer cupboard #5: A few more pictures from the build process

02-25-2010 06:53 AM by timrowledge | 2 comments »

I found a few more shots I took whilst building the cupboard- The first couple of successful test drawers; a previous try with some solid fir failed with splitting along the grain – big surprise. Baltic ply worked much better.Dovetails came out mostly good; you should be able to spot a couple of minor goofs here. Some careful work with tiny slivers of suitable stock hid them quite well. Mostly.Fitting the doors; the best use of old business cards you’re likely to find!

Chip carving patterns #3: Grid pattern #1

02-25-2010 02:16 AM by lovestoys | 2 comments »

Found a cool trick to help with the dry air of winter carving. I’ve been placing a piece of dampened paper towel around the wood blank an hour or two before I carve. When I first did it, I just put it on one side, which lead to some weird warping, but when the blank re-dried it was flat again (whew). This pattern relies almost entirely on the basic triangle cuts, so it’s good for practice. I used a simple flower motif in the center, it can be left blank or used for some...
