  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!

    Eucalpytus Split

    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.

    Wood Tools Hatchet

    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.

    Chopping Area

    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.

  8. 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.
  9. As I search through my last tool haul, I am finally getting to bottom of some boxes, and I found this gem. It's a Japanese hatchet, or machete, made by "Nata". The stamping on it translated is "Nata Single Edge". I love this tool, it's heavy, strong, and I could easily see walking through the forest and coming up on some small branches and logs, and splitting them with a maul, and this tool, green chair making? It could be in my future. Here is the Nata, the sheath is actually made of wood, covered in swede. My new found friend Ikeda Tomoko helped me ID this tool, she is a woodworker in Japan, and we corresponded through Facebook on this. She also judges woodworking shows in her home country, as seen in this image below, she is holding the shave from dropping.
  10. That time of year again. Three towns and a quarter of another having sales! First town was the 1/4 town, since we were right in that town....meh, struck out. Boss found a few things, then a trip through the countryside.....again a strike out. Just missed a sander and belts.. Went on to the next town, as they had CHEAP Gas for the van! Three ring circus trying to get to an open pump, the pay before you pump, too. Tank's full, on to the sales! Found a small barn off the side of the road, an old Plumber was selling a few tools!!! Finally! Spent $2 ( he only want a dollar, gave a little extra for his trouble) the two without handles, more on the handled one in a moment..also in my rust cover paws was this pile of bits, and that wee screwdriver, the larger screwdrivers came from a box, the same box that handled hammer was in . That cost a major league $15! Now why would I spend that much for a cheap, plastic tool box? Well when you strain to lift a FULL tool box.... Box didn't have a single ratchet in it. Might make some use out of the rest of the items.....you think? On the way out of that little town ( three other stops, NADA) stopped at one last one....found one hammer worth buying... For banging out dents? Went on to the house, had to pick up the GrandBrats, and one other person. Dropped that one off at her job, and headed west. Storm had rooled through the next town, and we only found one worth stopping at. Boss found a few things On to the next town.....looked around, most were closing up, but we did find one place worth stopping at. One GrandBRATS even got a bicycle! And a few toys for the smaller one. As for me.....HEHEHEHE $2.50 got me these four items. Stanley No. 923 10in brace, Thorsen 1/2" ratchet, Buck Brothers 1/8" sash chisel , and some sort of nail puller. On the way home stopped to find a couple handles . TSC only had any hand tool handles, only for hammers at that. $5.99+ Tax. Got home, and installed the new handle on the old hammer Checked the mail box...package for me! Inside was a stanle spokeshave, and a handle-less 1/2" Fulton chisel. Looks like I fire up the lathe again. And....to think, there is still one more day of those sales. Somewhere around 40......Starts @ 0800hrs, ZULU. Better go get some rest....
  11. Well, while on a Road trip, saw a place selling firewood by the chunk...50 cents. Thought about it, turned around and went....shopping. Dropped five dimes into the cash box, and got back into the van with a chunk of.....Ash? Oak? Not too sure. Measured at 11/4 thick! 7" wide, by 12" long. Might get some use out of it? First up, a bit of hacking away with a hatchet But in order to use this thing, I needed to sharpen it up. The chunk under it is the live edge, aka bark. With bug tracks too. Got the four sides about flat, maybe, and made a mess on the floor, again.. Then tried a larger plane to get the edges flat and square to each other Note that plane? The rear handle will be a pattern of sorts, later. Got out the scrub planes, and worked on the faces, to get them flat and coplanar to each other, and MAYBE square to the edges until I had a block like this But it was still way too thick. Laid a line around all four edges, roughly in the center of the thickness. Grabbed a VINTAGE saw, and set it at full depth of cut. Cut all four edges But it wasn't quite deep enough. Grabbed the hatchet, again, and used it as a splitting maul.. Until I had two blanks that needed a little clean up. with a jack plane. Then some layout against that try plane's tote. A forstner bit took care of the internal cut out, and the scrollsaw did the outside work. Placed the Pattern onto the try plane to check out Ok, most of the pattern is done. Still need to dig out the dovetailed bottom out of the other try plane, add it the this pattern, and cut out the actual tote. Then shaped it down, and add it to the old plane. That is the plan, so far....
