Rivers Edge #4

Inspired by woodblock prints by Birger Sandzen

Honduran Mahogany carved with dremel tool

Found this in a box of my old tile mold wood carvings. I never made this one into a tile. for some reason, I put it aside and forgot about it. It did’n’t have any finish on it and was dirty. Cleaned it off and coated it with linseed oil. Made this one in McMinnville, Tennesse about 4 years ago. will probably make a plaster mold and a few tiles someday.

Ilove it! – ...and McMinnville Tennesse is the name-sake for “McMinnville, Oregon”, home of the Gnarly Shop! I’m just starting some relief carving, so I appreciate the inspiration!

Beautiful, and cool to find something choice that has been sleeping, waiting to be reborn.

Finish tile will be about 5.5×10.5 inches, that if my estimates are correct.

Found about a half dozen carvings that did for my tile work. Cleaned them up, oiled them with linseed and took a few photos. Will post a few more. Know there are three boxes of them altogether. Found one so-far…
Will need to look in the attic and out in the garage.

That’s 2 Lumber Jocks inspired by Mr. Sandzen. Very nice work, Dan. It fits in a methods of work. I think we need a blog on how you make the tiles from these and of course the tile. Also a blog on carving them. Are we nosey, or what?

Hello Thos

I do have a blog started on carving. It has been put to the side until after christmas.
burnt up a dremel and Chinese Foredom type tool and gave it a push for a while.
for christmas , I getting myself a real foredom tool and will kick start the carving again then.

Planning on starting another blog … at least a photo blog of my tile making
