      Re: chip carving

      well last year we had an ornament swap here amongst some of us, but this year seems everyone is busy or not interested....the swap I was talking about is on the W3E (Woodcarvers Exchange) put W3E on search and you will find the site, they swap cane segments, spoons, pins, all kinds of things....

        Re: chip carving

        I was going to carve something, but then the love spoon I was carving for my wife for christmas out of black cherry bit the dust, and I'm scrambling now to make something for her...I think I should have practiced first using basswood...

          might depend on knife you are using Bob, I used a Warren bent knife blank I put a handle on ...also could be the direction of the grain....I messed a basswood spoon up, got to deep in it to quit and it was spalted and punky....it finally chipped its last time and I made a good spoon out of it! ...firewood

            Re: chip carving

            It was in the corner of the handle...I guess I didn't know my own strength when I was cleaning out the corner...It split the whole side off...

            I'm thinking that I need to go back to basics and work out my techniques before wasting expensive wood...I've got a ton of basswood, but just burned through three of my five pieces of cherry...

                Yes it does, wish I hadn't sent of the one I made for the grand daughter for a stocking stuffer. Was two spoons linked together with and 9 link chain. Shoulda took a picture. Course it wouldn't have done any good as I haven't figured out how to post a picture yet. Too busy.

                    Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
                    by cwmagee
                    A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                    Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                    That is...

                    The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                    Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
