Mandocello build series #18: Gibson style Mandocello Full build

02-29-2020 01:34 AM by Tomy Hovington | 3 comments »

over a year ago I started my florentine style Mandocello based on prints that I’ve presonnaly made. so to be accurate I’ve started this build when I started gathering information about this instrument, size, dimentions, scale length, pro and cons etc… so in reality, I’ve been working on this baby for over 4 years. well last week I’ve finally did the final setup and call it a wrap. I’ve just finished the editing on the full build and i’m happy to sh...

Small Projects #12: Wonderbread Pipe

02-06-2020 10:07 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Trying to get creative with a new prototype pipe: Started with a chunk of 5/4 jatoba, cut square, 4” long. The 5/8”-7/16” stepped bowl and 3/16” stem were drilled to produce a viable pipe blank. I make these blanks a half dozen at a time, each winds up as a unique ‘art pipe’. This set of blanks was oriented so that the sides are quartersawn, crown up. I drilled the blank randomly with both a 3/16” and 1/8” bit, each about 1/4” deep....

Man Carving Himself from Tree #3: Carving landmarks of the face and body

02-01-2020 10:40 PM by Dennis Zongker | 15 comments »

Here are some pictures carving in proportions of the back, head, face, chest. I will not carve in any details until all the landmarks are in the correct size and location. I think at this step it can be harder than carving in the small details. Next I will start on the full upper body, like the shoulders, stomach, chest, hair, and the arms. Once I have everything sized in proportion then I can start to detail. Thank you for looking, and happy woodworking!!! ...

Been selling pipes to the local head shop. Just cut out six blanks from a foot long chunk of jatoba. You can see the lovely variegation: I’ll post more when I shape them. I’m hoping they’ll retail for $20 each. M

Getting my carpal tunnel fixed

12-10-2019 08:45 PM by kiwilynne | 20 comments »

Backtrack to the start of 2018 when I started having issues with my right hand and was subsequently diagnosed with De Quervain’s tenosynovitis. A brace for eight weeks and two staggered steroid injections later, the issue hasn’t been resolved. In the meantime, I’ve developed carpal tunnel in both my wrists. I’m having CT release surgery on both wrists tomorrow, as well as having the right thumb’s tendon released. The next few weeks are gonna be a fun time! ...

Man Carving Himself from Tree #2: Cutting, Clamping, and Grinding

11-23-2019 07:27 PM by Dennis Zongker | 15 comments »

Finally after making the clay model many months ago, I found some spare time to start carving again. This carving is about my woodworking life. With good and bad times, with struggles and success, with blood sweet and tears. My brother Dan Zongker and I have battled many storms and enjoyed sunny days for over 30 years now. This carving I call “Determination”, and what better way to show this, then to have a man carving himself out of a tree. The next step is hand carving wit...

Building a Semi Elliptical table with a gilded silverleaf top

11-21-2019 11:56 PM by BenhamDesign | 6 comments »

This was a fun build that stretched many of my skills. Figuring out all the angles to produce the segmented edge along the top, was a lot of fun. The gilding process for the silver leaf is something I plan on exploring more textures and colors in the future, and using the spokeshave to shape the legs was awesome. Definitely an underutilized tool in my shop. The table is made from African Mahogany. The top is gilded with silver leaf, and then a patina was applied with sulfur potash to ad...

Carviings #1: Ships Bell

09-30-2019 08:43 PM by Paul S. | 0 comments »

One of the best things about having children is that, when you reach a certain age, they want to make sure that you’re not just sitting around wasting away. Toward that end, they come with “projects” that you can do for them to keep you busy. I’m working on another item for my grandson’s nautical-themed nursery. Although not nearly as complicated as my first (see my Window Seat in Projects if you haven’t already) this one poses its own challenges for my han...
