  1. New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone. I am a new member from Bowling Green, Ky. I am a sculptor, currently working with wood and metal casting. I am having trouble finding wood for carving in my area and was hoping to get some help. If anyone knows where to get butternut, or other wood that is good for carving...
  2. Project Showcase
    So, I recently had my left hip replaced and needed to acquire a cane to help with the first week or so of recovery. Somewhat surprisingly, this was a very speedy recovery as most people with the experience had said it would be. This experience was inspiring none the less. I found it...
  3. New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone, Nice to find (and join) a forum on woodworking. I'm usually a 'give it a go and see what happens' woodworker, definitely a 'That'll do woodworker' although as I grow older the adage of 'think thrice, measure twice, and cut once' does seem eminently sensible. I've joined here as I...
  4. Design & Plans
    Hi. Does anyone have any idea of how I could best make a group of perfectly equal-sized, equilateral triangles? (Each of the three sides of the individual triangles would be around 5" long.) I've attached an image of something that would be similar to what I'm trying to make. I spoke to a guy at...
  5. General Woodworking Discussion
    This is a project that I’ve put roughly 700 hours into. It is my eighth woodworking design project, and it is by far the most complicated one I’ve done to date. This is Colibri. It began with a lunchtime conversation between a friend and I, bouncing ideas around about what my next woodworking...
  6. Wood Carving
    I carve a lot of sculptures using alder, native cherry and apple wood. What to do with all those shavings? Use them in your smoker to smoke meat and fish. Works like a charm in my little electric and propane smokers. No need to buy bags of smoking chips if you are a wood worker! Tim
  7. Design & Plans
    Hi all, I just finished up a new sculpture I thought I'd share. I call it, Annulation. Its rings are essentially three carefully balanced pendulums all mounted onto a fourth pendulum. When wound, it will run for about 5 - 7 minutes. It has an almost mesmerizing effect as it spins. I have a...
  8. Hand Tools
    Hi Brand new here so try and bear with me ;) I'm an artist but haven't done woodworking before and have always been interested in it. Currently I want to make a few sculptures for my home office out of some wood scraps I have. Some are just old pine, others are that grapevine stuff you put in...
  9. Wood Finishing
    Hi, I'm a newbie here. I have some uniquely painted old wooden doors that I'm thinking about using outside as eclectic art pieces in a woodsy part of our property. I might bury them in the ground partially or lean them against trees. What can I use to protect them from the wet ground and...
