  • Ryobi Carver

    Just inherited a Ryobi DC500 power carver with an additional set of six carvers. Its brand new. Carver set never used. Is it a decent tool? I'm not a carver. Any help is appreciated.

    I use mine for rough outs. It saves a lot of time and muscle work. I've done a lot of spoons for gifts, and it does a great job on hollowing out the bowls. If you need to remove a lot of background, it saves a lot of work that is pretty mindless.

        Maybe it's a son of a Finnian?

          I don't know what that word is, but I know I didn't type it.

            I just re-read that post, and I know the word I typed there was 'spoons', since I've been doing them for Christmas gifts, and the bowl is part of the 'spoon'.

                Maybe you have a Finnian in your computer?!

                I got a Ryobi carver for a gift and wondered what good it would do me as well. I have since used it to rough out everthing from a Great Blue Heron to a Green Winged Teal. I have not used it for detail work except for the beard on spirit face and it worked well for that. It does have it's place in the carvers shop.

                Good Luck...

                  Censorship, sometimes mistakes a word for one that is objectionable. This happens often and is easly corrected by the board moderater.

                    So a 'sthingy' is a real word refering to an eating instrument? If that is so, I owe an apology to the person who posted a question about what wood is used to carve sthingies. I thought they were just being a smartalec! Of course, I still don't know exactly what it is or what wood to use but my comment about using 'Snipe Wood', although meant in good humor, was inappropriate. My apologies to whoever posted the question. :

                      Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                      Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                      Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
