• Two-Tier Side Table #8: Some Assembly Required

05-14-2018 11:38 PM by Ron Aylor | 10 comments »

Some Assembly Required –  With all of the zig-zag decorated aprons and three of the carved sides complete, I though it time to cut mortises and dry fit the table frame together. I must say it was quite fun channeling my inner Peter Follansbee, but it’s time to put away the carving tools and get out the joinery tools …  … but first … I took the time to make two interlocking trays to hold my newly acquired gouges. All I have used so far is No. 7 straight gouges – 20mm & 10...

• Two-Tier Side Table #7: My Very First Lunette

My Very First Lunette -  Having completed the zig-zag decoration on the aprons, I took my first steps toward some real  carving.

• Two-Tier Side Table #5: I Can't Carve

05-02-2018 06:45 PM by Ron Aylor | 8 comments »

I Can’t Carve –  Well … not yet  anyway! I need a proper carving mallet … can’t very well use one of these guys …  Hmmm … I bet there’s a mallet inside this tulip poplar branch …                 After cutting a billet, removing the bark, and attacking one end with a hatchet … it was off the the old spring pole lathe.  After about an hour or two … presto! This should work just fine.  It feels great in my hand and has a good bit of heft. So now  it’s time to ...
