    replied to Too dry Basswood
    Re: Too dry Basswood

    The experience you describe actually sounds alot like when I tried to carve cotton wood, it was the same way and I threw it out before I finished. I have not experienced basswood ever getting really light. Air dried usually seems lighter than kiln dried, but neither...

    Re: Jelutong wood

    It helps if you tell where you are from, so people from your area can direct you accordingly. I would say that an internet purchase of such a piece of wood would come with a hefty shipping tag, so I would first look for a local (or semi local) company first....

    started a topic Aspen anyone?

    Aspen anyone?

    I have started a carving in aspen for the first time, and I'm wondering why this isn't a more commonly spoke of carving medium. It is a bit soft, so you have to use sharp tools to keep it from tearing, but no more than tupelo or basswood. So, if you find yourself deciding, try some aspen. Or if you...

    Re: Micro Gouges?

    I invested in the 2 Cherries micro set, (139.00) worth every penny. I have noticed that it is so much easier to use them in harder wood. I also bought a Pfeil Vtool with a narrower angle which helps most areas of a carving....

    Re: Weecher

    I gotta agree with Callynne about the Proxxon tools. I would buy their tools over many others. I dont know about their micromotors, but their sanders and grinders rule!

    Re: Masonite use, outdoors

    Sure you can. I am currently working on some outdoor sculpture, (not wood) and Im coating it with a polyester epoxy resin, then auto style paint. The resin is what you coat fiberglass with, and is very durable.

  • Re: Lettering with computer true-type fonts

    Ihave done two name plaques, I used Helenistic on one, and Tahoma on the other. I did it primitively. I printed out the name, used spray adhesive to apply it to the wood, then routed the letters out. I then finished it up with chisels for that...
