Adventures in Carving a Tompson Sub Machine Gun Stock #2: Roughing out the scroll pattern

02-05-2010 03:29 AM by Jimthecarver | 4 comments »

This adventure in carving has been very enjoyable.The scroll pattern seemed to be a bit more advanced than I had anticipated. Although I am never one to run from a challenge. I kind of get a grin and ….well as my mom always said “you can see the wheels turning in that boys head.” So I grabbed a very small home made gouge and the chips were flying….sort of.This wood is so very dry for carving After about 12 hours I ended up with this. I am attempting to simulate bullet ...

01-31-2010 07:04 AM by Jimthecarver | 9 comments »

It was a thursday morning just another day carving at our local carving chapter meeting. In walks a nice elderly gent that had a box of Thompson sub maching gun stocks that never made it to use. They were stored for years, he knew of the carvers and decided to donate them to the club as test projects for us less talented carvers like myself. I inspire to become a great carver someday Dennis Z. in my opinion is truely a great carver.So I decided to take two of them although I was urged to take...

Lock progress II

01-30-2010 06:29 AM by deeman | 0 comments »

Today I braved the cold to work in the shop. I finished the shackle and made the Key. I have already glued up the faces and body. I have to round over the lock and shackle and finish sand all of it. Oh yeah I have to make the key cover. The book matched walnut faces turned out beautifully. My son thought it was really nice.

Built-in bookcases and mantel for fireplace surround in a Tudor Revival

01-28-2010 04:46 AM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

(Please note: I originally posted this earlier today as a forum topic, but then decided to put it in as a blog entry in order to keep all of my entries together. I have also added more information to this posting here.) A year ago Christmas, Santa promised my wife that he’d build built-in bookcases with doors, as well as an adjoining mantel. Well, Santa got busy over the course of that year landscaping most of the yard by laying brick pavers, constructing a couple of raised brick planter b...

Extremely Average #24: A Viking Tale

01-26-2010 03:14 AM by Ecocandle | 21 comments »

It was in the spring of 975 A.D. when Erik the Red’s 1st cousin, thrice removed, Sven the Brunette with blond highlights, headed out in his longship for weekend of pillage and camaraderie with his buddies. Sven was a giant of a man, standing 6’ 8” tall, with a barrel chest, and a thick beard, also with blonde highlights. His friends were also rather large and one might say malodorous (of course one wouldn’t say that until 1840 or later, as the word didn’t exist in 975, but I digress). ...

Cuttingboard #1: My first cuttingboard

01-24-2010 10:26 PM by Sux | 9 comments »

After reading all the great post on LumberJocks and watching the Wood Whisperer’s video about making a cutting board, I decided to try my hand at it. I went to a local lumber yard and picked up some of their discounted stock. I got three 1×6 (approx 9 feet long) board each of Maple, Walnut and Cherry. After seeing a few of the cutting boards posted on here I had an idea of what I wanted so started cutting and gluing. Since I don’t have a table saw, I used a radial arm saw to ...

Lock progress

01-22-2010 01:09 AM by deeman | 0 comments »

Today I worked on the lock, as i posted yesterday I made new faces out of some walnut I found in the scrap bin. I guess i forgot to mention about the hickory faces. I drilled a hole in the wrong location last week. Anyway today I got the new faces made and drilled correctly. I started the shackle, made out of maple. I am thinking I may try a combination lock next. I am a little worried about making the dial. I am not very good at carving or engraving. I really want to make one though. Hopeful...
