Made lots of heavy shavings today while preparing more handle stock. Began handling a very small hatchet maybe usefull for spoon blanks and other delicate work. I dont own a chainsaw yet, but I found that it was possible using this old twoman crosscut saw by myself😊#axe#shavinghorse#drawknife#woodworking#saw#handtools#shavings
So yesterday I went to an estate sale with my husband. He waited patiently to go in the house to look around while I was in the garage looking at all the tools. I can't help it, I love tools! Without my dad around I'm going to have to figure out what a couple of these tools are used for. He used to get a kick out of me bringing these treasures home and would always know exactly what they were for. Have a super amazing Sunday!
First go at working with cherry. I'm surprised that more people in the UK don't like using it. Really easy to work just planed two faces with a no4 plane and has some lovely grain. Planning to do some hand tool / gouge practice this afternoon and going to make a scoop for my rice bucket.. #cherry#hardwood#woodworking#wood#timber#lumber#roughsaw#handtools
And here's the 'after' shot of the finger hold recesses in one of the four chopping boards I'm working on currently. The jig worked well - but I got the positioning wrong so the recesses were off-centre. Decided to leave the jig set up as it was and just flip the board round on both ends to widen the recess. Crisis averted!! Definitely want to use this feature on future boards, so will make a proper jig sometime!
#bowlcarving with @danielle_rose_byrd Hewing the log. Step by step. At this point I was like great. We won't actually carve a bowl and I won't have to deal with the heat and humidity and then BAM we were outside and I was sweating like crazy annnddd carrrvvviinnng. #bowlcarving#greenwoodworking#handtools#woodworking
There's still so much I need to learn about #woodturning but I am slowly coming to grips with end grain hollowing.
Working on some candle holders, I really like how apple provides both weight and colour. Not all of my apple is very even in colour so I try to use these pieces for decorative needs.
Last post(s) in the #instalazy series.....Part 1 of 2 for my #stanleysaturday post. Shown is the khamphi rosewood and lignum mallet that Chris ordered and beautifully displayed with his Stanley SW logo carving. It pleases me to no end to know that tools I've made are being used to continue creating amazing works. Stay tuned for part 2. Thank you again Chris for the shout out product love 😘😍 @Regrann from @stanleytoolchest - I was awed by Dan @thedancherry post about his gorgeous new carving mallet by @the_last_mallet Fraser Allan. His full story is a great read. As I am usually just one to look and drool at these things I decided to contact Fraser @the_last_mallet for myself. As this photo shows, we struck a deal and his artistic creativity flowed and he made one to my liking! A solid lignum vitae head, and a khamphi rosewood handle with a beautiful brass transition. Here it is pictured with my amateur carving for a future display featuring my favorite Stanley SW logo. Fraser does amazing work and should you feel the desire, I strongly suggest you get in touch with him. Yes, I am using this and in time hope I can create beautiful works of art like Fraser. #thelastmallet#mallet#carving#chisel#handtools#antiquetools#stanley#stanleysw#woodshop#woodworking#lignumvitae#rosewood#brass#collector#handmadetools#carvingmallet#fun#hobby#handmadehandtools#shoutouts#igcommunity#igfamily#customerappreciation#grateful
FINALLY back in the shop this evening after a busy and eventful week. Cutting and cleaning the "biggo tenons" on the long stretchers tonight. I can hear the echoing, reverbing cheers of the distant finish line. And, y'all, if my woodworking finish is anything like my cross country finishes from ye olden days, we're about to sprint through that finish line. What always got me kickin and up on my toes was hearing those cheers! 🏁😂
#bowlcarving there was so much today from @danielle_rose_byrd it was like drinking from a firehose. Many many pictures. But here is a pic from my bowl. The axe work followed. I had two branches in this blank to deal with. When I rough out the entire bowl I will post again. (My bowl that is). That gouge is an Ashley Isles bent gouge 6 sweep. It stood me in good stead. My go-to had been the Hirsch bent 5 sweep. There are several posts coming I'm just too tired. The weather finally cooperated and we had sunny a sunny though humid afternoon. #handtools#bowlcarving#japanesetoolbox#japanesetoolbox#woodworking#greenwoodworking
