Pow-wow Dancer - burning in details

04-08-2011 06:40 AM by mpounders | 10 comments »

I used to do woodburning with a single temperature pen, similar to a soldering iron, that I purchased at a hobby store. I had some success with it and you can create some nice stuff with it, but that is probably due more to the talent of the user than the quality of the tool! Pyrographis technology has improved since then and after a lot of reading, I decided to spend $130 on a variable temperature unit with a replaceable tip pen. Wow! Tremendous difference, like going from crayons to pen...

My "Bucket List" #4: Segmant 3: Finally finished with the table.

04-07-2011 08:06 PM by therookie | 4 comments »

Well I can cross the table off my bucket list. I am extremley happy with the way it turned out for me being a novice woodworker and all. Here is the completed table with the carvings and the finish put on. Now I was going to carve the pecans in but I thought they would show up better if I burned them in so that is what I did. When I was making the center pedestal, I thought of trying to turn one but decided against it because I have never turned anything. So I made a Hexagon Bas...

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...

Wheelchair Woodworking #8: My Right Hand Man Gordon

12-02-2010 12:58 PM by Jamie Speirs | 7 comments »

Gordon is my right hand man, I thought that I would tell you a bit about how he has changed my life.Gordon and I were introduced to each other by his brother in law fifteen years ago. I was in hospital with his BIL and he thought that we would get on. Gordon is also disabled and has many similar interests. We both like Counrty & western music along with the 60’s & 70’s music we grew up with. We both went gun slinging, It is the UK so we fire blanks. Will we ever grow up? I hope not.Go...

Making a Violin #4: Cutting the 4mm edge to size

11-22-2010 07:26 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

The wood shaped to the line. If you check back a few posts there were two lines. My ‘final’ line is what you see remaining. Here’s a jig I made to cut the edges to size. Does anyone see what ‘the problem’ is in this picture? Think hard… It’s a 1hp Craftsman router with a 3/8” straight bit. I call it a ‘face off’ bit, but I could be wrong? The jig part is the device holding the router steady. It’s 1/8” alu...

"Methods to My Madness: Designing and Carving a Cane" #7: Finishing Up

11-17-2010 07:28 AM by mpounders | 3 comments »

I should be completeing this cane in the next day or two, but it is pretty much completed for all practical purposes. I did manage to cobble together a short video showing some additional texturing techniques that I used to finish off the woodburning. I put a couple of coats of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits on it to “yellow” it a little bit. And I have got the handle epoxied to the shaft using the pipe clamp jig in the video. I’ll brush it offf good and put on a cou...

"Methods to My Madness: Designing and Carving a Cane" #6: Woodburning the leaves

11-14-2010 08:29 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

Once I have the main forms roughed in, the fun begins with doing the details. This is my favorite part, since things really start to look good, to come into focus. Ususally, this part also goes pretty quick, in part because I think I get so involved with it that I ignore everything else and just zoom right through it. And since it is the fun part, sometimes carvers like to get right to this part instead of doing all of the important things that lead up to it. It is real important to block ...

Wheelchair Woodworking #1: Woodturning with a Disability

10-24-2010 01:12 PM by Jamie Speirs | 15 comments »

WOODTURNING from the Wheelchair(just a copy and paste from www.jamiespeirs.com ) Woodturning is one of the crafts that lends itself towards most disabilities. It can be done in a fairly small area with relatively inexpensive equipment. It is not overly strenuous and can be quick to show results; hence it’s mass popularity. The object of this is not to go into any great detail about woodturing itself, rather on guidelines on what look for in a course or in a tutor. Red Pine Three T...
