  • Two New Projects.

    Hi everyone here are two new projects that I am starting on. The Eagle is 2X15 diameter basswood. The covered bridge is 15X20X1.5 . I think you can see that with the help of Katy we removed allot of wood already with a forstner bit. This area is an inch and an eighth deep so I cheated a little. Scared the heck out of Katy me running the drill press but she did good guiding me on where to drill. Well someone had to do it and she wouldn't run the drill press herself. It was fun after getting over the initial shock and fighting which I lost.

        A couple of great looking projects Ron. I'm looking forward to see what you do with that Eagle, that's a beauty of a pattern.

        Enjoy them.

              Hey Ron,
              You sure do get a lot of projects going! That eagle will be stunning when it's done. Great pattern. Keep us up to date on the progress please. I love watching it come into being.

                Those are very nice patterns. Would you mind sharing where you accessed them. I'm assuming that you didn't draw them them up yourself, but correct me if I'm wrong.

                  The covered bridge pattern is from one of Lora Irish's books Landscapes in Releif. The eagle pattern I will look up and let you know. I just enlarged them to a size comfortable for me to work with.

                      Nice start Ron we talked about the covered bridge but you didnt mention the eagle. Hang onto that woman my friend one like that is hard to find. Ron it is not cheating using a forsner bit. How ever you remove wood is ok with me. Hell I use a chainsaw so if your cheating then what am I doing. Now Ron I dont want you using a chainsaw then Katy will be really nervous. Look forward to seeing the progress. Have a good new years

                        Darn Colin I was looking forward to changing my signature too Blind Man With Chainsaw! No Colin I won't use a chainsaw made me to nervous using the drill press.

                        The Eagle pattern came from the book Relief Carving Treasury By William F. Judt.

                        Another good book is Wild Carving In Relief By Lora Irish.

                        Have a Happy and Safe New Year looks like I will stay home today. Went for my walk this a.m. Left with a black dog when I got home Lou was white from being covered with snow! My beard and face was a white frozen mess.
