  • Another weekend in the shop

    Man is this stuff fun ! I started a couple of different things but this is the only thing I finished. It is supposed to have a clock in the middle but I haven't ordered any of that kind of stuff yet so I borrowed a Lab from another pattern & worked it in. Made the base too using the suggestion on the pattern

    Nice duck

    Instant gratification.

    That's what makes it so addictive

      Yep, this is fun and addictive. That look very nice, indeed. I like the Lab in place of the clock, as well.

            Sawduster. I too like the work. and It is fun to empravize,Is that a word? i too do that. just can't wait to put a clock in every thing. not when you wont to just cut something out for fun or a gift. I change patterns all the time, i think that is a part of the fun. adding things from other patterns. and taking some away if need be. How fun. you did great. love it. your growing in leaps and bounds.

              Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

              Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

              Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

              My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
              I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
              Was it a good idea.....?...

              Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

              The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
