  1. Halloween Hobgoblin Carving

    I carved this gruesome goblin in a piece of driftwood. The entire carving measures 13" tall, 3 1/2" wide and 3 1/2" thick. I believe this piece of wood to be Pine, but it held detail unusually well for a softwood- no complaints :) I call this carving, "Grief Down the Gullet" and it's up for...
  2. Lighted Jack O' Lantern

    Basswood, not quite 4 inches tall. Standard 1.5 inch battery powered tea light. Claude
  3. coffin

    Coffin I made for Halloween purposes. 3/4 inch Birch Ply, secured with Dominos. Then pallet wood secured to the outside to trim it off. The door initially had particle board plus the pallet wood, but that was too heavy, so i redesigned it to a lighter frame.
  4. Mini Pillory (Stocks)

    Build Instructions: http://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Pillory-Stocks/ This wooden Pillory makes a perfect stand for your mini skeleton. If you are not familiar with a Pillory, the device was used for punishment by public humiliation and often further physical abuse. This project was made from...
  5. Halloween Cemetery

    Since I was a kid, I wanted a creepy cemetery in my front yard. Not the blood-n-guts kind, something more along the lines of Hitchcock, who was famous for leaving the scariest parts up to your imagination. Nevermind, said my folks, not under our roof. You want a cemetery, you can do it in...
  6. Mini Guillotine

    Build Instructions: http://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Guillotine/ I couldn't find free directions online so I did my best job of reverse engineering and scaling a 1790's French style Guillotine. Note that the blade is real and therefore it is dangerous (see video). Although I'm only using it...
  7. JackOLantern Luminaries

    I've been wanting to make some nice wooden Christmas luminaries. I used this project as a warm-up and to practice with the scroll saw. It's just painted pine made into a pumpkin shaped box. Nothing special, but kinda cool. It was good practice anyway.
  8. Wood Pumpkin for Halloween

    Build Instructions and additional pictures: http://www.instructables.com/id/Rustic-Pumpkin-Lantern/ This triangular pumpkin lantern could be a nice addition to your Halloween décor. To give the lantern an aged timeworn look, the rustic finish uses multiple layers of paint, rough sanding and...

  10. Jack-o-Lantern with a fiber optic mohawk

    It's not wood but here's my first attempt at a pumpkin since maybe the late 70's or early 80's when using just a kitchen knife (definately easier with carving tools). Before I started I knew I wanted to try shading by not cutting completly through the pumpkin so I had to think in reverse as to...
  11. Electric Chair For Halloween

    A buddy of mine and his wife decorate for halloween like no other, and try and add to it each year. So this year 1 of the projects he asked me to do was a electric chair. So he came over this morning, and we got started. Took some old sawmill boards and made all the wood parts for it. My buddy...
  12. Turning bowls is scaaarry...

    I was turning a small walnut bowl the other day, when I realized I'd turned it just a little more than I should've, and when it became a little too thin, it broke. I thought the breakout looked like the teeth in a jack-o-lantern, so I carved out the eyes, eyebrows, and nose with a chip carving...
  13. Halloween Carving

    Made out of a single burl of Cucurbita pepo (aka "orangewood"), I removed the bark then proceeded to carve the figure… OK, so it's not made out of wood… but it is in the spirit of the season It did let me work on some carving techniques. This is from last year's halloween (2006), and I will...
  14. Happy Halloween

    I made some Halloween decorations inspired by Minecraft. Anyone who knows what I'm talking about will appreciate this. They're made from big box store pine boards and some spray paint. Normally I'm not much on holiday decor but I've been feeling inspired lately. They do seem to give the...
  15. Halloween Ornament

    Another SLD I used scrapbook paper for the background (decoupage) and cut the stand, ornament, and pumpkin from 1/8" Baltic Birch. I tried to do some fancy painting with green glitter on the frame and attempting to make the pumpkin look moldering, but painting isn't really my thing. lol
  16. Jack-O-Lantern Lumberjock Style...

    Which pumpkin was "carved" in 3 minutes by a lumberjock? HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!

    Just in time to scare the little ones. The wand is ash, with some jel stain, India ink and a brass tip. 13" long. Basswoods heads of various sizes. They are a snug fit to easily swap heads. First turned to rough shape and drilled on the lathe, then carved and painted. Facial features are...
  18. Zombie Tiki

    A request project from 2011. Carved from some rather hearty bradford pear downed in the front yard. Stain, acrylic paint and polyurethane finish.
  19. Mini Coffin

    I scaled this 1 foot long coffin from a full size version I saw online. I built two versions - see drawing links. The first one (documented here) is from purchased craft wood which was clean and straight. The second version was built from scrap pallets. I've also included a quick video of...
  20. Halloween CNC Wall Art

    I made a Art project for Halloween on the X-Carve CNC. I imported a picture into Vectric Aspire, traced it and made a pocket cutout using 1/4" and 1/8" Endmills. Then painted with Black, White and Green craft paint, and stain the other parts with Minwax Purtain Pine stain. After that dried, I...
