  • Large Carving Vise

    I seem to remember a discussion about carving vises but it looks like it disappeared whenwe lost all of those posts.

    Does anyone know where I can find plans or photos of a large vise that I may use for doing woodspirits on a log approx. 10' dia. by 2-3 feet long??

    I'd love to hear from anyone who does large carvings to find out how you hold them in place. I've only ever done small carvings.

    Thanks,
    Chris

      Hi Chris; you may want to check out www.leevalley.com. They have a twin screw vise that I've been using on the end of my bench for about 6 years now. Its a bit of work to retrofit it onto your bench, but it can handle a really big piece of lumber. Check it out. They have a FANTASTIC catalogue that they can send out to you. Its a company out of Ottawa Canada, so remember the prices are in Cdn. $ which is really good for you right now if you live in the U.S. Let us know if you find it, and how it works for you, it works great for me.

        Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

        Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

        A family friends father passed away and he was an avid bird carver. So my nephew is helping the family sell some of his tools. I bought this air cleaner and will b uy most of his carving knives and burrs. And no that is not my workshop! Not even close. ...

        I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

        Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
