Man Carving Himself from Tree #5: Carving Details

06-24-2020 01:32 PM by Dennis Zongker | 11 comments »

Here are a few pictures of me carving in the details of the Tree trunk, Stone base, Hair, and the face. My next step is to carve the forearms, hands, chisel and mallet. After I’m completed with all the carving then I will sand and finish. I’m getting excited the closer I get to completion. Thank you for looking.

Building Closet Doors, Appliques, HVLP Spraying, Installing...

06-07-2020 02:40 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

There’s a lot of work packed into this 21 minute video I just published. This was a custom closet door project and I’m showing the process starting at the lumber yard to the end where you see the customer reaction. It’s almost the perfect length of video to make a 30 minute TV show… if HGTV would be interested in some craftsmanship. Here’s what’s covered if you’re interested in a part or all of it:- selecting lumber in the lumber yard- rail and s...

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...

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! ...

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...

Hi all, I have been asked by my wife to make her a small foot stool and I had some hardwood offcuts floating around so here it is.The off cuts were in the shape of a triangle so I used a gum leaf as a template to make a cut out design before joining the two pieces and carved in a section for some gum nuts which I will fill with epoxy.I just brought some Record carving tools so I thought I would it would be nice give the edges a bit of scolloping so I tried my hand at that, I like the look ...
