  1. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The spoon is roughed out, and I carved the shape with a couple sloyd style knives.
  2. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The beginnings, I am ready!
  3. From the album: Spoon Carving

    I procured this little branch for a wood pile at work, it's green, and I split it using a forest axe and beat the axe head with another small log till it split. I really need to get a froe.
  4. From the album: Spoon Carving

    I roughed out the spoon blank with my Japanese Hatchet and thought I'd bring out my new hatchet by Robin Woods and give it a try to bring the blank to fine rough. I like the new hatchet, it performed well in curves.
  5. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The spoon needs to be dished out, I'll do that after it has dried overnight.
  6. From the album: Spoon Carving

    I didn't need much, just an old log for a workbench, a stool to sit on, and a few tools. I really like this spoon carving, I set the spoon in the shop overnight to dry a bit, then I'll be able to refine the entire spoon tomorrow after much of the moisture has evaporated, and I should have a fully functional cooking spoon.
  7. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The bottom of the spoon, it's a lot of work, but well worth it, I love the journey to get it this far.

    Just a neat blog and shopping section for the green wood workers and chair makers, and all in between.
  9. Ok, so now that the gun show (and my first booth) are 3 days away.... I'm mildly freaking out lol Did I make enough so I don't run out... will I even sell anything... will I forget to wear pants... I know I will always see flaws in my work that no one else would notice unless they were nitpicking or I told them they were there... but I'm suddenly feeling nervous about the whole thing lol Nevermind being in a room with HUNDREDS of people moving around (I think its well beyond a couple thousand expected for the whole event)... because I adore crowds (i know it won't be as bad because there will be a physical barrier between us). Anyway... I know my brain is over-driving about nothing... Anyone else who has done events felt the same way?
  10. Still not there yet. I put the colors on while the football game was going at noon today. I mix my colors as I go. Gotta darken moms blouse for it is too close to the same as the blanket !
  11. Saw this on another site today. Not my subject matter (snake or mouse) but the patience, detail, techniques, craftsmanship and vision is something to behold plus it has dog cameos.
  12. From the faces I put one these folks they don't seem too happy but I'm still in the finishing stage so maybe they will cheer up before I get them shined showered and shaved! The baby was wrapped in swattling clothes and I couldn't find any of those while building this picture...
  13. Finally get to deliver this today and exchange it for an older model!
  14. So, I finally have a jig saw, an angle grinder, some mica powder (for epoxy resin), I found a local wood shop for things I need done that I can't do myself (planing an uneven slab, etc)... I feel like a kid turned loose in a candy store LOL I ordered the wood carving bits for the angle grinder (not the $145 Arbortech that I had been looking at), more jig blades... I feel like I'm about to get myself into LOTS of trouble LOL I'm probably going to go get the 2x4's that I need to make that wavy flag, get the shop to plane them to the same width (on the 4" side), and to level one side (2" side) to have a squared bottom edge to start with. OMG I am so excited and ready to start tearing into some wood LOL Granted, getting them sold will be another issue until the fest season begins around here again. So... What are your woodworking plans for the new year? (I can't promise I won't borrow your inspirations lol)
  15. So proud of my granddaughter - Anna and the progress she is making with her carving. She is a natural - she listens and follows directions and suggestions very well. Here is this years Christmas ornament for her Mom and Dad - a Fisherman ornament from Woodcarving Illustrated. Our schedules did not provide enough time to get it painted - but that will happen this week. Love you Anna! (BTW - her younger brother Cole is on his was into carving as well - just started teaching him the different cuts: push, pull and stop - he will be ready soon to tackle some basic carvings - Love you too Cole!) BTW - take note of the t-shirt Anna is wearing - LOL!
  16. Over the years I have carved many things using the bandsaw for 90% of the work. The rotary tool is the only other tool I used. I selected two types of Oak for color and texture. (Don't know the names) It will be a Christmas gift. I made the eyes 8 times using different size Forstner drills. Some split and some just didn't look good.
  17. For my first try at seeing if I should keep on with my wants or shuck the whole idea I downloaded this picture and enlarged it to be about 10 inches across... owning no carving knives since my knuckles won't take that kind of pressure I decided to order a few bits for the Dremel I acquired in 1992 after my son died...He had used it to work on his model train scenery so I figured it still had a few miles left. I glued the pattern on the wood and started what I realized almost in the first day , this was for me. A few reasons, carving don't take a lot of wood or supplies. And a person can sit while grinding away so this would be better on my bad back. You can see I left the pattern on and started grinding away at the wood...Something I realized right away, now one will know when and if I make mistakes like when a person makes a picture frame and the miter joints don't match up!! My kind of carving does need a scroll saw which I already had so my carving business started of with a bang.. not a profitable one, pleasurable might be the right word. I did finish this first carving and maw said thats good to go....I never could understand that lady..
  18. This will be my next commissioned piece. Due to uncontrollable circumstances, a gal and her family were raised by their grandparents. She took a picture of the house they were raised in and had it transferred onto canvas. This plaque will hang below the canvas picture of the house they were raised in. I asked she take a picture of it once it is in place - I will share when I get it.
  19. next will be my kind of carving also my favorite kind of woodworking. This is parts of three different patterns to come up with this size thingy.... Just finished scroll sawing the outside of this pattern. Its 1 1/2" maple and it sure does strain the saw. I think I will be inserting a few names somewhere in or on it.
  20. In 2018 our church choir made a pilgrimage to Italy and actually had to opportunity to sing at a Papal Mass (means attended by the Pope). We also sang at several other basilicas and even held a concert for the people of Rome. It was a most rewarding experience. While there, we had several professional pictures taken, but they were kind of a weird size and my wife and I could not find an appropriate frame to display these pictures - so I decided to make one myself out of a slab of Buckeye I had, incorporating my chip-carving. Here is the start - pretty much cut to size, just playing with what I will carve into the face of the frame:
  21. Here is the start of a simple little project. Seems they had an Anger Management course at work for the Supervisors. Well, from what I hear the instructor made mention that if you get angry, rather than saying you PI$$ED me off, you should say - you tinkled me off. Well I guess one of the Supervisors laughed so hard she almost wet herself - she continued for like 15 minutes laughing hysterically. Her staff asked me if I could carve a simple sign for her office that said: "you tinkled me off". I needed to do just a tad more than that - so I designed this simple plaque and started carving. Thought I would share

    Woodcarving

    Here is one of my relief carvings. The pattern was graciously given to me by a carver in Canada. It is the first relief carving I did. The pattern is a station of the cross "when Jesus meets His Mother".
  23. Doing nothing this morning I thought I would compare Amazon and Wood Carvers Supply with the same 1/8"bits I use all the time since Woodcarvers supply has the original numbers beside their numbers in their catalog.. These pictured on the left side of the page are the ones I use most ll the time... the 1/4" bits are too big for getting into tight places but some are okay for starting the process. I think I ordered these in the middle of 2015 so they have lasted through all my clocks and still look like new once I get them out of the bottle of lacquer thinner and clean them up with a real fine bristle brush.. The second set of numbers and letters are the ones Amazon uses like the T-18D and T-14D and you have to be careful for they also have other numbers and letters added here and there so the prices will vary up so be aware . These pictures here are of a light grey with no color added. I did order more different kinds but only use the 4 numbers circled so I spent money on some not necessary in my carving... When looking at Amazon they do have the second set of numbers but not all the bits are available for sale. The number RS-34E is listed for 25.50 at Amazon where Woodworkers Supply has it for 14.50. I had to keep looking for Amazon has lots of identifying letters and numbers close with all kinds of prices so be aware. Some of their items are fine grit where all these woodworkers supply numbers are course grit.. Some of the exact number bits are the same price as each supplier but if there is any difference, Amazon is higher. The machined cut carbide bits are good for some places but the real course models will dig fox holes before you can blink your eyes.. so change out the bits before a screw up can't be repaired. The finer cut models will make a smoother surface on the wood than the nugget type bits. These Saburr and also Nugget brand are long lasting and clean up good. When first starting I like to use the 2" Carbide Nugget brand wheel which has to use a 1/4" shaft so I have to switch to my air tools for the first wood removal.. This is on page # 3 of the Woodworkers Supply catalog. I just mentioned this because anytime I go to Amazon I just assume their prices will be cheaper than anyone else but that's not the case when comparing these exact items!!!
