    Opinions on Flexcut Carving Tool Sharpening Kit

    This is on my wishlist for Hartville tool. http://www.hartvilletool.com/product/11755 Any feedback? I have a very limited carving set. This is not something I'm planning to get into in a big way but when I need to do it I would like for the tools to be sharp and they're not. I can use my...

    Sharpening carving tools - suggestions wanted

    G'day All! I need some help choosing the 'best' all around system for sharpening carving gouges and knives, as well as the straight stuff - chisels and plane irons. Most of my 'unplugged' woodworking is in carving and I'm trying to increase my skills to a higher level. It is obvious to...

    Basic carving set for cabinet pulls, handles etc

    I have always liked the hand shaped pulls on Krenov's cabinets. I would like to carve handles for a small box top and probably a cabinet door/drawer in the future. Any suggested reading? Any recommendations on where to get started? Thanks! Salem

    Latest version of my carving stand

    I used to have the Panivise attached to a cast iron table pedstal with a small worktop on it. Over time, it didn't prove to be nearly as convenient as I hoped. I decided the conventional approach of only freely turning the carving and not the work top makes more sense. You need the big flat...

    "Peas in a Pod"

    These "peas" were turned from Ash and then treated using Behlen Solar-Lux Stain, clear lacquer, and Liming Wax. The "pod" was turned green from Basswood and then hollowed out with a Lancelot carving tool.

    watched the fan carving episode on Woodwright

    And despite having a bunch of unfinished projects going already, I decided to give it a try. That's from a little cypress board Robert (Sawduster) gave me a few days ago. That is one piece of wood, all still attached; nothing glued and no hardware. My splits are way too thick, but I got the...

    started carving wet

    I took the barley twist I started at my class with the Woodwright school and started carving a snake that has a marble trail in it: It is largely complete; a marble rolls down and stops and I have set in around the head, which I will do in shallow relief. It is poplar and it was freshly cut...

    power carving - foot pedal versus dial for speed control

    I have a cheap import Foredom knock off hanging motor rotary carver. The foot pedal was basically junk, bet I reshaped the sheet metal so it wouldn't keep coming apart and I insulated it because it was delivering a minor shock at times (yeah, I know you get what you pay for). What makes that...

    I have a 1 inch used Buck Bros gouge that one of my sons gave me for carving. Could a gouge of this type be used for turning also? I didn't see how to post a pic here I will in the photo thread Thanks Mike
