    replied to Carvings I did
    Glad to see it varnished ! Either on the road, digging up the garden or digging under something it shouldn't. I think my wife would rather have a wolf to deal with than this pre-historic trouble maker. Nice color and good wood for the critter. I'll have to carve / varnish neighbors now - live on...

    I always admired the carving done in the south seas of the Pacific ocean. Natives using metal taken from the waters of war time and working it into knives and axes... Some of the nice work was upon various hardwoods in small trees or large bushes as well as what floats in and coconuts shells. Heads...

    I have a couple of local brothers (not related) and one tried to carve ebony and ended up grinding it all the way. He does canes. The other, golf balls. Go figure. Three types of carving in 3 men.
    I have my power carver working now - had to buy a motor for it as it was not heavy duty. So...

    My reverse tooth hand saw had a slight job cutting and I was a bit tired after working on that. I tried my pro knife an yes I can slice a corner as before but more than that takes real work. It is a very dense wood. I have a power carver and a new motor drive to drive it. My Big one is too big....

    Thanks for the thought, I'm in the process of doing another big dog for another set I'm making and the prototype dog came out reasonable so now for the Black wood - Ebony! Yea. Dog will have a White tail and white inside ears. Still considering other items. The prototype dog was in old (ugh) pine...

    Thanks Spritwolfe - I think a 90mm (to use metric) 25mm=1inch (more or less) wood cutter, chopper, Viking or such would be best. The block height is about that high but "MA" there with her axe is even taller but would work - it is a limb to her and a log to the short wood cutter. So some...

    replied to Holly wood
    Hi - I'm a wood turner from time to time - and when living in central CA and in a Redwood forest, the power company came along trimming trees... Cut my 6" Holly Tree down to the ground. It was almost white and like notes here, take the bark off. I turned a beautiful desk set to hold pencils,...

    Cleaned up a Rose Root

    Found wood is fun indeed. Sometimes it is just a small size for another project - glue on or add to... I was working in the garden - have acres - and came across a dead Rose. It is bad for a mowing machine to hit - so I used my tractor to dig it out. Once out, I decided to see if I could use it...

  • I have a TX it is called a TxH Machine with EMX-1 Cntrl. Have the 25H handpiece and naturally the carving one now. Bought my TX in 2004 . I believe the motor is a 'universal' motor with brushes and can be AC or DC. The EMX is a nice speed control and I'd have to look at it with my scope, but I...
