I know that there is already an entry on hickory but i figure that the more entries we get even if on the same wood our library will grow as everyone will present new ideas. so first off one thing that i noticed with hickory was that it chipped out a lot with router use. what i did to counter this though was take a lot of passes. even if you do take a lot of passes though you can still get chip out. also the king of chip out on hickory are the straight grained boards that are the ones that wo...

I just updated three videos showing essential technique when chip carving 3-corner chips.To watch them in HD you’ll need a free Gold Membership. Uploading HD videos to YouTube takes too long which is why these high definition videos can be watched and downloaded from the My Chip Carving Video Vault. I hope you enjoy watching!
the years I had many different methods and idea about how to get a project ready for finishing. Like any other part of woodworking we all have our own way of getting to the finishing stage. Some smooth every part and piece with a drum sander, others use a jointer to clean the face of boards, and there are those that prefer hand tools and use a smoothing plane. The smoothing plane takes some practice and I do enjoy using hand tools on my projects but it is definitely a lot more work. No...

Tools come in many forms shapes a...

Good Things Happen Today I am going to vary my blog style some what and pass the morning’s sun highlight on to an-other worker of wood….and also a worker in many fields of yet to come. A dreamer of sorts, who has chosen to put his hands into the multi-tasking of what can I do to better not only my situation, my families outcome and then also what can I do for my village or community….today this is where this young man is, tomorrow will yet come when he looks forth upon th...
Cultures of Sculptures ….this are the images of my heart, wherein lies the nourishment for my soul, taken across the canvas of landscaped forests of green, and so the green is a living color that breathes of what i am…. —-have you entertained the thought of venting as a leaf, on the back of an un-de-fined-un-re-fined wind, accepting for the moment of moving time your delay of free will, and so you ride the backside of this storm furore bearing gifts…. —-...
A mate was cutting down a Leopard tree [Caesalpinia ferrea] and asked if I wanted the wood… I had to think about this for a while because I am running out of room lol..Leopard trees have mottled shiny bark that someone thought looked like a leopard’s skin.
