    Re: Carverfromnowhere's B'day

    Thanks for the birthday wishes, I'm still around and carving/turning. Working as a cook for a steakhouse now some day I'll return to the forums in full. Hope everyone has been well and has a pleasant holiday season.

    Re: Calling all Young Carvers

    21 now, started carving 5 years ago just after my 16th birthday, wish I had more time to devote to my carving and turning but I've been too busy with life. Younger brother also carves he will be 18 this summer.

    How's everyone been.

    I haven't been on here much, too many things going on in my life to find the time. Thought I would stop in and say Hi, I hope everyone is well, it's been really cold here so I have not been into my shop a whole lot. Have a few carvings in the works and some knives, lots of stuff on the lathe. No pictures...

    I carve Basswood all the time it's plentiful on my property here and i have a sawmill, I have carved a very limited amount of the European counterpart Lindenwood aka Limewood.

  • Re: Carving in the basement ??

    Before our shop was built my brother and I carved in an upstairs bedroom and had our bandsaw in the living room, that went on for about a year. Mom got sick of the dust that escaped the collectors and we ended up building a shop.

    Re: A dark dilemma.

    Where are you located Bob?
    All of the wood you've listed is excellent Black Walnut not only great for all types of carving, is very valuable you could probably find a small private sawmill to buy the logs or mill them into lumber for you.

  • Re: Anyone carve tobacco pipes?

    Interesting I would imagine fruitwood would work well for the bowl, I don't know anything about how a good pipe smokes as I don't smoke and don't know anyone close by who does. Knowing about fire and wood it seems if it was an open grained more porous wood...

  • Anyone carve tobacco pipes?

    Just looking for information about what woods work to make pipes from, currently experimenting with walnuts maples and birch. Haven't the money to get into briar yet and i am making the stems from wood as well, I'd like to try and steam bend some into curves. Once I get the one I am currently working...

  • Re: Allergic to Basswood

    Like Bob suggested do have you recently worked with any specific species other than basswood? Some woods can make you sensitive to stuff that has never bothered you before.

  • Re: Khaya vs. Cocobolo, hand tools vs. "Dremel"?

    I work with cocobolo almost daily on my lathe, it is a known sensitizer so be sure to wear a respirator and have some form of airflow wether it's a air filter or just a fan to keep the dust off of you.

    It...

    Re: D-2 Tool Steel

    I always get my steel from McMaster Carr otherwise when I can I have my uncle get it through his workplace at a big machine shop, they are constantly ordering all kinds of special steels. Maybe look around see who you know who does metal working or look for local machine...

    Re: Cottonwood Santa No. 8

    Nice work Ken, I happened to look at the pictures before reading your post and seen the bark was red and began to wonder where in the world you found bark with a red tint on the outer shell. Very interesting and it does add a old world christmas feeling to it...
