Lesson 3: Pattern Development The project we are tackling in this class is a chip carved quilt. Quilt patterns lend themselves very well to chip carving. Geometric in nature, various elements of a quilt pattern can be removed to create a carved version of the fabric quilt. If there is a quilter in your household, no doubt there will be a book, magazine, or quilting journal in the bookcase, magazine rack, or under the bed (maybe only in my house). Get one out and page through it thinking...
I like the Shaker feel of this design. With the drawers and cupboard storage. I made my bench just the draws and no cupboard. I have had benches with open area or just a shelf under the top and they always ended up being a catch-all, so a set of drawers was a good alternative and you never have too much storage space that is close at hand.I do not like painting wood but it keep well with the shaker look and I could save some money by buying poplar as the substrate. The poplar panels are 3/8” ...
http://www.youtube.com/user/TeenWoodworker Hello agian you Lumber Jocks, Today I did a quick little trincket box project that was a lot of fun on the lathe.

Althoug this is a simple box with a little imagination this box could be made really exciting. To ...

I was visiting my parents over the Christmas holidays, when I noticed a plastic tray full of candy on the coffee table. My mom told me she got it from the dollar store. She also told me that she loves this bowl because of the divided trays.So, being the woodworker that I am. I decided that I was going to make one out of wood. Without anyone knowing, I took measurements. I do own the CMT bowl and tray bit, and it does come with a template for making this tray. However, the overall size of that...
Lesson 1, Part 2 – How to sharpen your chip carving knife As a kid, did you ever grab that old hand saw hanging in your dad’s garage and try to cut a board with it?I know I did! No wonder my dad didn’t do any woodworking. I would’ve be better off taking karate lessons and breaking the board with my fist. A dull tool in the shop leads to burn marks, ratty edges, and wandering cuts. Not only that, but it requires a lot more force on your part which can lead to inju...
Hi fellow bucket enthusiasts. I finally have something new to show. Today I cut the binding materials and made some bands. The photo below shows the cut materials and some of the buds. This is the most difficult part of the project for me because I’m in unfamiliar territory here. In short, today was learning through minimal instruction and maximum experience. In other words trial and error. today was heavy on the error side. I’ll take you through the step by step with the hope tha...

I hope that everyone will be able to complete one square to send to me for our LumberJocks Class Quilt. If you would like to send me more, that would be fantastic. How many quilts will we make?I will assemble as many chip carved quilts as possible depending on how many squares you send me. From the l...
