First 3d wood sculpure

10-07-2019 03:23 AM by DocSavage45 | 6 comments »

Lj’s my apologies. Using my camera phone the pictures are upright in my files but not when I download. This is an adapted picture from an artist friend. I use a small router to engrave the picture into the wood. I’m doing some 3D sculpture as well. Putting the Youtube IP in the blog rather than trying to embed into it. Would appreciate your checking it out. At present don’t have any camera pictures to upload.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1384: Getting Back on the Horse (Or Reindeer, if you will!)

08-18-2014 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I am happy that last week is behind me. I can honestly say that it wasn't one of my 'favorite' weeks. It only confirmed my own beliefs that negativity and controversy can really take its toll on someone. For the first time since I could remember, I wasn't really excited about my work. I think when things really began to sink in, I realized the full scope of the events of the week and the implications for the future. I found it difficult to find my motivation, even though I sti...

Reclaimed Glory #14: An Ode to Power Carving & Sculpting Reclaimed Furniture

04-17-2014 10:34 PM by palaswood | 1 comment »

I have been dragging home interesting logs I come across in the woods from time to time over this past year, and I have amassed a sizeable little pile (ok not little at all!). Thing is, without a huge bandsaw or a chainsaw mill, processing the wood into lumber is a task hardly worth the enormous effort. I know, I’ve tried. I recently looked into power carving for the first time as a quick and creative way to make use of my …inventory, lets call it.With an investment of onl...

Redwood Table #1: Redwood burl slab table- Advice needed

02-02-2013 08:18 PM by WoodenSoldier | 4 comments »

Hey guys,I’m building a kitchen table out of a 3” redwood burl slab and so far it’s coming along nicely. The legs are being carved from glued up poplar and power carved with an angle grinder. Its coming along well so far (though the grinding is creating buckets of very fine dust). I laid the top on the legs last night just to see how it was looking.I had filled in a lot of the gaps last week with epoxy and last night I was sanding it to try to level it out a little ...

Well, I finally got around to taking the camera with me to my power carving class. and the following pictures are the result. The first few are what I have done so far. The Finished eagle head is the one I am using for reference. My instructor carved that one. and the final picture is the carving booth I was sitting at and I am eventually going to build. My instructor sells the booth supplies including the motor for dust control for $65.00. I am all over that. This guy is an awesome instructo...

Just for fun - Horned Owl

02-25-2011 04:13 PM by David Craig | 18 comments »

Recently, I read a blog by littlecope entitled Make Something!. Apparently Mike, on occasion, does something just for the spirit of it, just to have fun (whatever that is). It has been a hectic week and haven’t had much shop time, but I did find a few hours in the middle of the week in which I could do a little something. So I thought I might see what this “Fun” thing was all about. I have a vast collection of scraps, parts of branches of trees, broken furniture, basicall...
