Workbench #2: Materials Obtained

07-09-2011 05:31 PM by CartersWhittling | 5 comments »

Good day. I now have the wood for my new workbench. My friend (who is also building a workbench) and I, drove to Exotic Woods in Burlingtion Ontario a few weekends ago to get the wood for our benches. I have regular hard maple at 8/4 and 12/4 thicknesses. The piece of walnut in the picture I got from a friend and I will be using it for my sliding dead man. I also want to try and aquire some walnut for the leg vise chop and the shoulder vise pad, for added visual interest. I also...

It's an action figure....

06-30-2011 06:57 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

nope, it’s a doll. I’m still practicing female faces, only this is a smaller model, which does add to the difficulty a bit. It is a lot harder to detail and being a millimeter off here makes abigger differnce than on a larger carving. But this is a “useful” carving, a toy that can be played with or collected. It is a little over six inches tall, from basswood, and is based on the classic “Hitty” doll design. People collect these dolls and ...

Playing Around with Carving #4: Carving Class

06-27-2011 04:33 AM by WayneC | 22 comments »

Today I took an introduction to relief carving class at the local Woodcraft store. The class was focused on carving an oak leaf and acorns using a piece of Basswood. This was my first experience at relief carving. I am an absolute beginner. I have to say I really enjoyed this and will be setting time aside to carve as much as I can. I would also say I have extreamly happy with the Ashley Iles carving chisels. They arrived sharp, are very substantal and they cut basswood like a hot kn...

QUADRANT HINGE INSTALLATION

06-20-2011 01:02 AM by Jake Brain | 24 comments »

I spent a lot of time looking on the internet for a Jig or fixture to use to install a set of quadrant hinges. The quadrant hinge is a complicated-looking L-shaped hinge that is use in the jewelry boxes that I make. It helps to remember that a quadrant hinge is simply a butt hinge with integral lid stay or stop.The arms of the hinge extend along the sides of the lid and base of the box and the internal stop bar extends from and recesses into a mortise in the box wall and lid. The jewelry box ...
