Jim Stevens' "Scrimshaw Techniques" Book going to Print: and I'm going to be in the BOOK!

11-11-2007 09:59 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 5 comments »

Many folks over the past year have emailed me asking about whether investing in a website was worth the money and time. In my opinion (likely to change any day) for many folks that are just wanting to share their artwork with the world, I think a community posting like Lumberjocks is a better effort of your time spent. If you want to sell your work, or do it full time, then how you use the internet needs to be part of a bigger plan. Almost all “artist-based” websites I have r...

Relief Carving My Birger Sandzen-Inspired Desk Door Panel, A step-by-Step Log.

10-10-2007 01:31 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 19 comments »

I hesitate to do this, that which I am about to do. I don’t fancy myself as a good carver, or a great picture drawer. Especially with so many lumberjocks that are great carvers here that will see this. On top of that, there are so many great carvers on the internet that will stumble onto this blog because they surf the net. With that said, after Mark Mazzo asked about the process I go through to do a carved panel like this one, I thought about it for awhile, and decided to show th...

How not to #1: Turn a Bowl

10-09-2007 12:53 AM by scottb | 12 comments »

The first in a, likely, long educational series, teaching by example. Poor example. Deliberately. If we don’t try (and fail quick) we may never learn how to proceed. Or reasons why the tried and true, really is. Several months back (or more) I saw some experimental turnings of Hilary Pfeifer's made from several layers of perforated hardboard, laminated into a block with woodglue. Inspired (and knowing that common wood glue would be brutal to keeping your chisels sharp) I took a bunch...

"Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner"; a Scrimshaw Art Demonstration at the Senior Center

09-26-2007 01:28 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 14 comments »

About a month ago I received a phone call asking if I would demonstrate the Art of Scrimshaw at the Senior Center in Marion, KS. The lady that called said that she has held onto a brochure of mine since 2003 that someone had given her then, and so she decided to see if I would come and talk to the group. I asked a bunch of questions, and for some reason had it sunk in my mind that we were talking about the nursing home crowd for the demonstration. I haven’t been to a nursing home much si...

WWND- What would Niki do? #1: Jigs and Fixtures. Creating something that makes work safer, easier, repeatable and on a budget.

07-05-2007 09:31 AM by Douglas Bordner | 8 comments »

I, like many here have been amazed at the posts that LJ member Niki has provided in the realm of jigs, fixtures and set-up tools. I decided to pay him a little homage in the title of this collection of shop fixtures and jigs. I finally got tired of knocking over my cyanoacrylic glues, only to later find some tool or other in a big amalgam.I have a bunch of left over hiker mattress pad scraps from making ring inserts for my jewelry boxes. The light bulb came on, and here is what I came up w...

Kitchen Remodel #2: Making the legs.

05-29-2007 03:30 AM by Karson | 10 comments »

Well I started the Buffet / Hutch. If I don’t get started I won’t have anything to say without getting myself in trouble, when my wife asks me what I’m making in the shop. I started out by making a full size template on plywood for all of the milling that needs to be done on the legs. Can you believe that those two templates have all of the instructions for milling 8 surfaces on the legs?Now you may ask what do you mean by 8 surfaces. This is the way that I was taught when you make ...

I did find something screwed up in my firewall, but the real problem was on this page. Somehow I had gotten into View and blocked images on this site and on my photobucket site. Why I would do that I don’t have a clue but I’ve got all my pictures back. Thanks anyway for the help again!!!!!!! mike
