  • Use for scrap wood

    Recently bought a book, 'Carving the Little Guys,' (got mine at LIttleShavers) and am absolutly hooked. All you need is a piece about 1 x 1 x 2 and a knife.

    Re: Use for scrap wood

    I carve little hillbilly men and women. Also, it use those pieces of wood when working with Boy and Cub Scouts on the their knife safety and wood carving badges for the Boy Scouters.
    My 5 year old Granddaughter, came in the other day and said Papa, Is this carving I did prettiful?. Dang if it wasn't.
    Guess i have a little carver in the family.

    Safety, the enjoyment.

        I have a friend that takes pieces of scrap wood, various shapes and sizes, & makes bodies & stems for morel mushrooms. He then carves faces in the body.

          I've got a big cardboard box sitting on the floor beside my bandsaw where I toss all of the cut-offs when I'm cutting blanks. I'll have to pick up that book so I can start using some of it. It would be a shame to throw it in the fire. There's little guys in there waiting to be carved out :

            John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

            This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

            I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

            Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

            How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

            I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.
