My Clubs and Organizations

  1. We have a group of friends that has been meeting for quite a few years on Tuesday. We call the group Turning Tuesday. One of the older friends is more of a chip carver than a turner. He likes the boxes I have been making lately and asked me if I could make one out of basswood so he can chip carve it. The lid is Purple Heart because that is what he wanted. Here is the box, 8” tall and 5” in diameter. I can’t wait to see what he carves on it.
  2. Got some new files from Scott Thompson in Alaska, so I figured I better start trying them out. This barn owl is cut from 5/4 oak glued up to about a 15 x 16 blank and finished with golden oak stain and poly. I think I'll make a couple different variations of this just to show what can be done with one file. Been busy with a custom job for a Orthodox church in Chicago. Don't know how they got my name but they did.
  3. Hi everyone Finished my newest custom intarsia project titled "Woodworker Needs a Shop". This is the second of 3 pieces I am creating as part of the Aavegotchi Intarsia Collection. 501 pieces from 40 different woods. Book matched Zebrawood frame with purpleheart inlay banding measures 21" wide x 16" tall. No stains, paints or dyes were used in this project. Lots of little pieces , detail carving and texturing bring this project to life. Fun Stuff!!
  4. Since I got the files from Scott i figured I better start using the 2" thick slabs I've been tripping over for 2 years, amongst a bunch of various other pieces that I've forgotten about. Wife wants the basement cleaned up and organized a little. Well, maybe a lot. Since I've had these since who knows when I look at it as free wood ....... til the next "deal" comes around. These should stand out on somebody's wall.
  5. Sorry about that. The picture was straight when I told it to post. Probably being 88 don't help for I always blame it on the computer for I think those little guys inside the computer have have been snorting something!
  6. I used a picture from somewhere for the inspiration. My little detailing bits are worn so bad I couldn't match all the fine work of the picture but maybe next year or two I can get more bits from Wood Carvers Supply, Inc smallpatch
  7. Here’s a picture of my Godson’s latest work.
  8. Took a day trip to Dover, Ohio yesterday and visited the https://thewarthermuseum.com/. Just amazing pieces of work. Most of his work was done with ebony & legal ivory. There is no glue used on any of his pieces, everything is carved to fit. He never sold any of his carvings. These 3 trains were some of his early works. The wheels came from a local pool hall and were damaged ivory cue balls. This was a prototype being designed that has boiler & power in the tender car to help push the train up hills. This is the only known model of this type of train. The handrails measure under 1/16"dia. Lincoln funeral train. All the lettering is ivory inlayed into the ebony. Abalone trim on the cars and wheels. The rope that rings the bell is a single piece of ivory about 1/32"dia. Lincoln inside the funeral car. This piece was made of just ivory & the train's weight is 72 pounds. The bridge is ebony with highlights in walnut and the mortar joints are made of ivory. This piece to a year to carve.
  9. Greenwood Spoon Carving By: Emmet Van Driesche I ordered this book beginning of summer and it came last week and I finally got a chance to unbox it and flip through the pages, it's a fun book, I am a big fan of Mortise and Tenon Magazine, and I like to acquire pretty much anything they put out there for us, and this was no disappointment at all, just as everything they produce or sale, it is top notch and great quality. The book is full of wonderful images and all kinds of information about the history and methods to carve greenwood. Thanks Mortise and Tenon!

  10. Over a 49˚ rainy weekend visit to a Fine Craft Fair I reacquainted myself with a carver first met decades ago. At that time, I *think* I was looking for large timber. Interesting fella. Could not place when we met but his daughter had been a mature-looking minor, that I remembered She is now "45 or 50". So I was at his place in the mid-late 1990s. Wow! And Tom is now 79 years old. His place is hard to find. The city tore down most area homes and businesses and moved streets in the 1960s with a redevelopment plan which came to a complete stop. Possibly the southwestern-most residential street in the city. He lives and works at the home his great-grandfather bought in 1880. Tom is known as The Rocking Chair Guy but I watched as a Peruvian-born Canadian admired and bought a simple and elegant wall piece of African wood. I sat, with his urging, with my bag of wood samples and small magnesium bronze plane, making shavings for identifications, and heard more of his story. One of my first questions was, "Where did you learn to sharpen your tools?". 1960s, from a master carver in Ecuador ..
  11. Got to get ready for the summer festivals and add to the Craft Village display. Newer additions.
  12. I was visiting my FB buddy @Roper- Roper on his page and I saw that he had turned a beautiful carving mallet, and he had it in his Etsy shop for sale. I could not pass this up, the craftsmanship is wonderful, and I loved the fact that a fellow woodworker made this for us, woodworkers. Could I have made such a mallet, I suppose so, but I would never have thought of this design, the design by Roper Roper, so ya, I can turn a mallet, but not this one, this one came from his mind, and I love the shape, the style, the wood species, the turned lines etc. Based on the image, and the description, I purchased it, I love supporting our craftsmen and women, we should support each other when ever possible. So I ordered my mallet from Roper, and in days it was at my doorstep, I removed it from the box and what a wonderful mallet it is. It's hefty, perfectly so, and fits my hand nicely. I can't wait to use it and when I do I am sure it will not disappoint. Please see Roper's Etsy page, I think he will make more of these mallets.

Thank you Roper for such a beautifully crafted and useful tool for my hands and my shop. Dimension: 11" tall, 3 1/2" diameter at the business end, the handle is just right.
  13. Finished them up today. Took longer than I thought they would. Wife and I had a nasty bug last week. Worst cough I can remember having for a while. Doc said, "just something that's going around". Crazy. Anyway, I'm happy with these. Guy hasn't seen them yet so I hope he is too.

  16. I've now got some downtime and wanted to do something different for my next carving/gilding project. I want to carve this whale, in 3 dimensions, and mounted proud of a rectangular plaque. It should be 12-18" long, with all of the detailed carved into it.

  19. It's been a very busy last two months with yard/garden/house repair work to be done for spring. Not much time with the computer or anything else! In addition to this my wife and I spent 3 weeks(Apr-May) traveling in Portugal, Spain, and Morocco. In Morocco, we did an afternoon 4-wheeled drive in the Sahara desert, meet up with a Berber tribe for a sunset camel ride through the dunes. The last photo verifies our camel ride! The shell is taken from a book on Eugene Landon's work and is a shell carved by him for a Chippendale Table. When completed, it will get gilded, as well as the plaque.
  20. I know, a day late (and a dollar short). Got volunteered to make a set piece for the local community theater group. Rush job. Our Patriot Turners- @Masonsailor posted a new mallet he made for a friend. The unique design is for a specialized function. I really think this one is too pretty to use!! Paul tells us bout the use and the materials used, in his post- Back in May, @Gerald told us about the guest speaker at their club meeting. Jeff Hornung demonstrated how embellishes his bowls/platters with the Sorby Texturing and Spiraling tool. Gerald posted some of his fantastic examples recently. I'd say Gerald payed really close attention to Jeff's demo- What’s Coming Up- Click on the images for more information- Cindy will be on her YouTube channel, too- https://www.youtube.com/user/cindydrozda From Craft Supplies USA The Art of Woodturning has a complete schedule of their events.

  21. Our daughter and son-in-law have just purchased their first house in Springs, NY, south of Montauk. Their street address starts with just the #5 and then the street name. I thought that I could give them a house warming present, with a carving of just the #5, and it will be painted/gilded. Here's the start of the rough carving/layout for this project. The number carving is in basswood and the second disk of wood is pine, and the use of it will be apparent later on. Again, this is just a rough carving...... finishing will take place later.
  22. I just found this photo that I taken in Stockholm, and I'm thinking about carving /gilding this as my next project. There is a lot of undercutting, which will be interesting. Now, to scale this to a reasonable size!
