All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest. When I presented the idea of holding a whirligig contest to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking For Mere Mortals) he and I agreed it would be a fun summer event. The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...
Too see more images on this and other projects, please go to Pallet Craft! Hello all! This was a gift that I made for my fiance the year before our wedding. This breadbox was my first wood working creation that I built with my own two hands, so please excuse the crudeness of the door! It is all purchased wood that I picked up from a hardware store where I went to school. On each side I carved my wife’s (fiance then) favorite flower (Calla Lily) and burned it with a butane lighter ...

See if you can guess what I am carving on! I’ll put the answer at the bottom of this post. Some friends approached me about making a housewarming present for a new music director at our church. The wood appears to be spruce. It carves like cedar, in that it is soft but splinters easily, sands easily, and it doesn’t really have the color or smell of cedar. I have always wanted to get better at relief carvings, especially wildlife, with the hopes of some day carving a few gunsto...
I got the burning completed this morning. Lots of little scales! They are easy to do, but it is important that they be going the right direction and I change sizes in different areas to indicate more flexibility or bends. I sprayed it with water to judge how it will look with a finish.. pear really is an attractive wood! I won’t be able to work on it for several days, so I should have plenty of time to decide whether to paint it or not. My original plan was to paint, primarily becau...

I thought it’s time I filed a progress report on my attempt to carve a Bald Eagle. But first, let me apologize for not starting on the BE. You see, I’ve been looking at a couple of geese blanks sitting atop my fridge in my shop. Every time I wanted something out of the fridge, I could just hear these two geese honking at me to free them from the blocks of wood! So after a year of resisting, I finally got one down and started shaping and cutting on it, figuring that if I mess it up, at lea...
