  1. Hand Forged Gouges (Surprise Swap)

    For the 2017 "Shop Made SURPRISE Tool Swap" I forged this set of three incanal wood carving gouges from 1080 steel. I forged the tangs then hammered the curvature with my swage block. I heat treated them in the forge, quenching in oil and tempering at 400 deg F, followed by softening the...
  2. Child's Hand Holding Butterfly Carving

    Hand Carved Child's Hand Holding a Butterfly. I carved this out of butternut (hand) and curly maple (butterfly) with hand gouges. It was challenging, but fun and I think I can get the next butterfly even thinner. Both are sealed in a beeswax finish. The hand measures about 5 inches by a...
  3. Orchid #1 Miter and Splined Shaped Box

    This is a mitered and splined box of poplar, cedar and mesquite. It is number 17 in my 2019 Box Build. This one is a bit of a hodge podge of a box. I originally did the intarsia orchid for box number 16, my Soft Dovetail Box, but I didn't plan it out well and the orchid was orginally...
  4. Drill Press Sharpening Jigs and Techniques

  5. Chisel Rack

    I've pontificated for far too long about building tool racks for my workshop, so I finally bought some pine, MDF and oak to build a few. This chisel rack is the first of these and a plane rack (which will be located to the left of the chisel rack) will follow shortly. I like using words like...
  6. Fix it or trash it?

    I learned a lesson this week. It takes no longer to work with good wood than it does to work with flawed wood. I had a piece of what I thought was nice walnut. After assembly and during sanding I realized it was brittle. There are several spots where the wood chipped out while being sanded...
  7. Lotus Box- Mitered box with Compound Curves

    This is box number 18 in my box series and box number 4 in my Adventures into Shape (thanks SplinterGroup). I took a few weeks off when I got either bronchitis or wood allergies from making the basic box. (see pic below). A new 3m respirator, a large fan and some more precautions when using...
  8. My first Spoon

    I carved this spoon out of walnut using the crooked and straight gouge and the spoon knife. It is my first try. The general shape, I used the ol 14" band saw. Finish is olive oil. Surprise Suprise, sharpening took just about as long as carving. The hooked spoon knife is about 2/3 sharp...
  9. Donna's Wren Project Finished

    I feel like a Christmas elf. I have finally gotten all the pieces together to fill orders for the new 'Making the Wren' project. Blanks cut out, legs and eyes purchased, DVDs burned, 23-page bound, color booklets printed. . . check, check, check. So if you (or someone you know) would like to...

    I am taking the Mary May online carving course. This is a complicated version of the exercise, she as The point of the lesson is to carvewith the grain, not against it and carving left and right handed. It is a piece of mahogany, 9" sq, 8/4.
  13. Home made carving gouges - a set of 31

    First of all the website wouldn't allow a long and wide photo of the finished gouges so I had to break the long photos into two smaller photos. There are 31 completed socket-type gouges and 31 smaller and uncompleted tang-type gouges which I will prepare handles for this coming winter. You will...
  14. A 'heritage' box for my cousin

    This is big enough for most documents & photograph albums - memorabilia of sentimental / historical value - Clutter? Main structure is oak; mostly from ex school laboratory workbenches (you can see two filled screwholes on the inside!) and the lid panel in zebrano that retains its sapwood...
  15. Lathe tool holder

    Finally got around to makiing this project. Been wanting to get to this since October. Nice winter weekend project. (Also showing the snow we had this week). Sides and shelves are 3/4" MDF, back is 5/8" plywood, front face is scrap walnut. Painted white (still drying) and wipe-on poly finish...
  16. My 2nd home made carving gouge set

    A year ago I posted 31 socket type carving gouges I made ("http://lumberjocks.com/projects/183218"), now I am posting 31 tang type carving gouges I made. The first photo is of the larger gouges, the second is of the smaller gouges. All of the handles are the same size. As the story of the hand...
  17. Woodturning
    Hello, I am a woodworking newbie, and plan on buying a belt grinder/sander for my woodturning tools. One set came with my vintage lathe. That set is very rusty, but are marked HSS. The other set, I bought off of craigslist, is a brand new, never used set with the Montgomery Ward brand, Powr...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    To ensure that when I use a straightedge, the straightedge in my hand is truly straight and doesn't just look straight, I checked my straight edge tools (squares, steel rulers, the combination ruler blade, etc.) against my Bridge City Toolworks (24") straight edge. The results show that several...
