    replied to Plano Tool Caddy
    Happened to be at Cabela's yesterday and saw one for $59.88. Cheapest I saw was someplace called CARiD.com for just over $31.00. Cabela's will match any price on the internet EXCEPT Amazon, so the next time I am there, I will see if I can pick one up.

    Mr. Nomad...I found a bag called the...

    replied to Good to meet you!
    Welcome! The knives Doug recommends are excellent choices. Mike Shipley is a woodcarver turned tool maker, and any of his knives are great choices. The folks at Helvie knives make great products, too.

    I have several of Mike's knives, and currently own 1 Helvie knife.

    I recommend...

    Those are great carvings! You might contact Randy Landen in Wichita, Kansas. He is a member of the Caricature Carvers of America. He also collects carvings, and may know someone that would be interested in buying those.

    If you do a search for the CCA website, I believe Randy's email...

  • Pallin's comment on waiting for a bandsaw is good advice. Even a small 9" saw could handle almost 90% of carving I do. I got a 14" saw because I use it for other woodworking projects.

    Usually, you can pick up a 9" saw at one of the big box stores for around $125.00. Don't...

    Mr. Bif...that is a great looking knife! Would the $25.00 include shipping? If so, if you shoot me your address, I will send you a check...I am a banker, so I think I am trustworthy!

    Let me know!

    Thanks!

    Hi Tbox. Last december I started moddifying a rough Rider kit knife and posted about it here (folder Mod) You asked if I would consider modding one for a forum member, I assume you meant yourself.

    Well I finally finished the knife, scary sharp and all. I knew when I started it I wouldn't...

  • This is what I use...a modified top from a box of printer paper. Works well, but have never tried it in a car! Also, you can set a tool down in it and not have to worry about the edge getting dinged up on the cardboard....

    Hmmm, that is interesting...I found it worked best when I didn't have to scrunch down in my chair to see the ghost image. I was a bit surprise on how the image came across on the paper...it is very subtle and doesn't stand out a lot. I may get mine out in a day or two and try it again.

    Rodster...those are great!!! You just made my day!

    Great renditions!

    As a side note, I grew up in Russell, Kansas, the same home town as Bob Dole. My dad was a friend of Bob's and Bob's dad. Bob's dad ran a grain elevator in town, and gave credence to the fact that overalls...

    Hi Tbox
    I have the Sketch Wizard that we discussed earlier. I can't get it to do anything, no matter what I try I can't see a reflection on the paper. I am trying to draw a small 3D Hummingbird about 3 inches long by 2 inches high. This is the first occasion I have had to try it. I have read...

    replied to Goldcrest Thumbstick
    Very nice...great, smooth transition from the stick to the bird! I once did a thumbstick for my sister from a small fork of deer antler inletted into the top of a sumac stick. Yours is most excellent!

    replied to Wax on Open-Pore Wood?
    Hmmm, I have built a lot of furniture out of walnut, but can/t speak for the other varieties. I have never had any issues with wax getting stuck in the pores, and I used Johnson's paste wax and 0000 steel wool on every project I finished.

    I would say if you have issues with that, you...

    replied to Beginner needs help with carving
    Tinwood...the last time I saw it was on the CCA website...not on there now. I guess they have combined the book and patterns into a CD? Here is a link to what I have found. Too bad if the book is out of print, that is one of the best to learn from!

    Jack Price' book is around $12.00 and is a great tutorial on carving basic caricatures. Sharon My Art on youtube uses his method of carving, and the other suggesting Gene Messer, or Doug Outside offer great tutorials.
