This is probably my favorite piece in the entire gallery. Great job.
Looks like a neat addition to the library. Count me in.
I have never carved before but I was looking at getting started. This looks like an excellent way to get started and I am sure that the wife would love it.
Well I have never done restoring but that doesn't mean that I won't try my hand at it. I would love to learn restoring. Sign me up!
I am planing on using the scratch method... I guess what I was getting at is how do you "scratch" the channels so that the curve of the grove is consistent as opposed to wavy? Do you use some sort of guide, maybe a trammel? or do you just do it freehand and be very careful? I am planning on inlaying intials so do you have any tips specifically for letters, as the curve changes directions and therefore would make using a trammel difficult? Any suggestions you could give would be helpful. Thanks!
I had a question about the inlay. How did you cut the groves for the curves? Did you lay out the lines and then follow it freehand with a scratch stock or did you use another method? I have been looking around on the website but all I can find is how to inlay using a scratch stock inline with an edge. I am making a box for a friend of mine and want to put his initials on the top but I have never done inlay and I am not sure where to start. Thanks for the help.
I am planning on trying my hand at inlay on a box I am making (a friends initials) but I cannot figure out how to accurately plow the groves on the curved pieces. Do you mind sharing how you made the groves so that they were consistent? Thanks.
I love the legs. What did you use to make them? I am getting ready to make a similar box and have been looking around for ideas and I really like the way you did the legs. Are they too small to do on a bandsaw? Or did you use a router and pattern or something else? Thanks,
