    Peach Seeds

    My Uncle Dutch carved peach seeds or peach stones as he called them for years. His favorite was a Monkey holding its tail. He gave them to eveyone. They make nice keychain ornaments and zipper pullers. The peach seed has to be just right to carve it and they are very hard and hard to hold. I've carved...

    Re: Your favorite carving tool or knife?

    (how good does the hacksaw blade keep an edge and do you have to re heat treat once you are done?) I use a homemade grinding wheel on a slow motor, about 1700 rpms or less? I use my finger to test the heat from the friction of the steel on the...

    Your favorite carving tool or knife?

    My favorite tool is my carving knife. I made it from an old hacksaw blade that is carbon steel. What's your favorite type of tool that you do most of your carving with?...

    Re: choosing wood

    Cutting and splitting wood is not easy and not everyone can do it. But just for me, that's what I do to save money and end up with a good piece of wood. For me, why burn a good piece of wood when I can make something from it? As far as safety goes, I use wedges and sledge...

    Re: how do i dry wet wood

    I never had much luck drying wood. I know there are several ways to do it but even the polyglycol (sp) that I bought never worked as good as advertised. I get a very large stump and let it sit out of the weather and let it air dry for a year and then split it...

    Re: choosing wood

    I went to the local lumber yard. Asked the guy if he had 2x4, 4x4, and 6x6. He told me,'We don't sell lumber here. Good Bye.' Now isn't that astonishing?!! I have bougth lumber there since the '70's'.
    I went to Lowe's. Their 2x4 are full of knots and cost $1.50...

    Re: Buffing instructions

    All good advise. I use small rubber wheels that can be purchased by mail from any Dental Supply. Do a web search for the places that sell dental tools. I haven't ordered any for a long time as they last many years. If you have one of those old rubber erasers made...

    Re: Carving Black Walnut

    I have not carved any Black Walnut. My friend has and really likes it. Yes, it is rough on the cutting edges but worth it as it is beautiful. I have sharpened knives and all kinds of tools for years and I still don't consider myself an expert sharpener. I use...
