  • A new line

    Hi Everyone. I thought I would share with you all a new line I am doing in pendants for the crafts fairs. I have just started making these and I am now running out of ideas for new designs. They are made from spalted oak and are 10mm thick.

    I have also included some pictures of orders I just finished completing today. The Nemo and Nico signs and for two horses, to go above their stable doors. I have done a sign for a gym and one for a grooming parlour. It was a relief when i came to the last letter, cut from Siberian Larch.

    Those are very nice. Which font are you using now? That 1s a real nice clean looking font.

      Hi Mike. The font is called beach scroll italic and it is a free download but cannot remember where I got it now.

        I found it on my computer. There is a post somewhere on here from about 3 years ago on how to find it but I have no idea how I did that. Good thing I can scroll better than find things on here. It is called scroll beach italic.ttf. If you find your font file on your computer, it should be on there.

          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...
