  7. 5 carved Australian birds

    These are the 5 birds that I have carved recently. They ate all hand carved and painted to replicate the real life so a lot of the time the paint is mixed to get the right colouring. Once I get the right template that carving is just a matter if looking carefully at the individual bird and...
  8. 3 carved owls

    Three Hand carved owls. Carved from pine and making the feathers stand out a little more than I normally would do them. The customer didn't want them painted but didn't like the yellow of the pine when sealed. So I stained the wings and gave a light cream wash over the front of the body. A grey...
  9. Arctic Seal

    Yesterday, was such a beautiful warm Spring day that I took a break from my 2.5 year long house renovation to sit in the sun and just relax and do nothing. As is my nature, doing nothing is a hard 'row to hoe'. I saw a small chunk of birch lying nearby (from cutting the tree down last month) and...

  14. The Kitchen at 404 Blackaby Street, The Panels, Part 2

    Of course, our kitchen had to include handcarved leather panels on the doors. That's what I do. The process is as follows; 8 oz. leather is glued to Baltic Birch panels. This prevents the leather from stretching while I carve it and provides support when in place. I use Baltic because it doesn't...
  15. Joinery
    I'm repairing a spindle back chair with a bentwood outer rail. The spindles are ok, but when the chair failed, the tenons on the bottoms of the bentwood rail that fit into mortises (drilled holes) in the chair seat were both broken off. While there might be better ways to make the repair, I've...
