Holly's Jasper #17: Holly's Jasper #17

69 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 4 comments »

I have run into one of my most challenging learning situations since I have begun carving. Some background…..I take multiple angle photos of a subject when I carve in the round and print them up to keep at my workbench. Last week my client visited Virginia and I showed her the carving so far, and took some more pictures of Jasper’s ears as the folds are complex. Once I got them home and printed them off my printer the detail was not as clear as I wanted, so I decided to take them ...

Jewelry Case Build #3: Rip Panels and Rabbet Insides

75 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

I got a little time to work on the jewelry case this week so I ripped some of the little panels to proper width then I ran a rabbet around the inside of each one. Three will get glass inserts, one will get a mirror and one will get a walnut panel. The rabbets are 1/4” x 1/4”. I then squared the corners with a chisel. Off they go to the glass shop.

Yard sale find, and the rehab

78 days ago by bandit571 | 4 comments »

First yard sales of the season! Wasn’t that great, but a few gems were found. A bundle of saws files, for $0.50, a little rusty, but they will work. Picked up two full sized handsaws at another sale. $2 each. Got one because of who made it, and the second one because the handle was a close match. Why? real cuties, right? Well the top one will be for parts to rebuild the other one. That one just happens to be the first model of skew back saws Henry Disston made, ...

Adirondack Chair #12: Lessons Learned

78 days ago by Scott R. Turner | 4 comments »

This is a wrap-up posting to talk about some of the lessons I learned in making the chair. I like to retrospect a little at the finish of a project to understand what worked, what didn’t work, and how to apply those lessons to my craft. This was the first time I’d done a project with steam-bending. For the most part that worked out fine. The actual process of steam-bending is not as daunting as it first seems. There were some challenges in building the forms—they need...

Holly's Jasper #15: Holly's Jasper #15

82 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 4 comments »

Worked on some large areas around the top/sides of the head and the front of the ears today….. I thought something about the eye placement looked off, and took some measurements. Things weren’t adding up! Fortunately after figuring out it was some of the eyebrow ridge and carved eye placement notches that needed cleaning up, all was well!
