  • Stuff I've been making that isn't scroll work

    I did want to make people to think that I've been on my butt, so I thought Id share some pictures of some of the stuff I've been doing lately.
    They're wood carvings. One was a commission.

    First the cottonwood bark house i made for Sister's B-day...

    It stands about 14" tall X 8" wide, and 3" thick.

    Then I had a woman in Utah who wanted two Caducei, (Staff of Hermes), (one for her, and one for her Sister), for a special tree with the different names of the Savior on it. She only asked that I add the word, 'Physician', to it...Of course I couldn't stop there, and added the Sacred Heart...

    I just didn't want folks to think I was sitting on my butt..

    Thanks for clicking in.
    Comments and friendly advise welcome...

    Those are amazing Jim. So you made them standing up?

        No inlay?

        Really nice work, Jim. I especially like the bark house. Just needs a little elf and some mushrooms . . . .

          Hey Jim - when you post that phrase twice pal it makes me wonder if you have an attack of guilt and really have been sitting on your butt! However, not being one to throw stones I'll give you the benefit of my doubt - LOL!

          That house certainly looks different! How did you come up with design? Is it something you just plucked out of your imagination or was it adapted from something you've seen? Really nice work! I also agree with Carole. It would look even better with some elfin creature to set it off of maybe one of your carved heads peering out of a window - not your head, I mean the ones you carve!

          The Caducei also came out nice.

          Congratulations pal !

            Actually Stephen, Yes. I stand when I carve at my bench, except for the final details. I do that sitting on my butt..lol.

            Thanks for the accolades my friends...
            I've yet to hear the response from the Caducei customer. I just mailed them out yesterday.

            My Sister was pretty thrilled with her bark house.

            Jim, I was tired when I wrote that, so my internal thesaurus was on the fritz.

            But I have been busy.
            It seem I've been doing more carving than inlay lately. I don't know why. I guess that's just what my Muses have had in mind for me.

                Now that the weather is changing, I'll be able to do something from Carole's box book. (I have to do my sanding outside). I've got my eye on the oval laminated bowl, and I even have some ebony for it. Just a little feller, but I've never known what his home was going to be 'til I got the book.

                  Thanks Rolf...

                  Jim,
                  As to the design of the bark house, I just let the bark tell me what it wanted to be.

                          Looks real nice, Jim. You are the talented one for sure! As far as sitting on your butt, I'm guilty of that all the time when I scroll. Don't stand any more than I have to, HA

                            Jim,

                            Whether you were sitting, standing, or upside down on your head those all really turned out impressively. I saw a book on something similar to those bark houses and would like to try my hand at one of those sometime.

                              Just Wondering...

                              Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                              With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                              I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                              Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                              I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.
