  1. Here is one I made a back in the last century, 1999. Carved brass, dremel, circuit board router bits, flexshaft w/dental bits. I set ball bearings for eyes. Used a round nose punch for the scale texture.
  2. Here is one I made a few years ago. It is four interlinked mobius strip, heart shapes. Carved from a single piece of curly maple. A mobius strip is a twisted strip with only one side.
  3. Lets see if this can start some comments. I have been getting deeper into engraving the last year or so, I have a Magnagraver setup on a foredom flexshaft. It works okay, just a little stiff and awkward for tiny detail. And my handpiece was getting long in the tooth and probably due for a rebuild. Buying a GRS system is way out of my budget, a low end Lindsay classic is a stretch (someday....) Looking online there are some good videos by Shaun Hughes on making your own pneumatic hand engravers. Years ago I picked up a dental tool that was used to compress gold foi
  4. Hello all, I am Sean, I am a carver from Hawaii. I have officially been carving for 3 years, not counting whittling as a youngin'. I am a sculpture major an the University of Manoa, I learned more of my carving skills at a Kalai Laau class which focuses on Hawaii based carvings. I am not much of an online person, but I see on this forum a lot of peoples work that I respect and admire and hope to exchange techniques, philosophies and passion with. . I draw most of my inspiration from textile forms. Typically I like to look in to material cultures of different sorts. Or I'll see some b
  5. Hey friends! I have just recently sat out into carving a cow skull. I have engraved a skull before and have tried to dabble with full blown carving but I am having trouble with the thickness of cow bone. Does anyone have any advice on how to make short work of the thick bone? How do I go about making fine lines? It seems like only my larger bits are able to cut all the way through the bone and they are not suitable for the intricate designs that I have planned out. I am using a dremel multipro 2 - speed with engraving bits (not sure what kind they are :/ ). Is my Dremel not powerful enou
  6. Hello all, My name is Jim and I am an addict. But I guess that should okay, since I am addicted to socially acceptable things like, Small wood carving, hand engraving, jewellery making, gem stone faceting, etc. Blacksmithing, knifemaking, tool design and general hand tool mayhem. My background is in mechanical design, tool & die and plastic injection mold making and design. Attached are a few of the things I've done. (If it works)
  7. I’d like to say Hello to All Forum Members! My name is Zoltán, I’m from Budapest (Hungary). I design and prepare jewellery using traditional handcrafter’s techniques like carving, punching, embossing or modelling and casting. I very often use the Japanese Shibayama technique for making jewellery. I like Japanese-style objects because of their small size, the design and the meticulous elaboration. I’d like to improve my skills and knowledge in carving and shibayama/inlay topics. Unfortunatelly I couldn’t find any description about working process of preparation and used materials (g
  8. Hello wood carvers, and all other types of artists, I'm in my 40's now and haven't really been involved in fine art since I was 19 years of age, which at that time I was building jewelry boxes from various types of woods including some exotics such as Purple Heart. It's kind of a ressurrection at this point to get back into art. I put a lot of thought into it and decided upon wood carving. I think Jim Redhawk inspired me more than anything. I really like his style and way of teaching. But I don't want to carry on about myself. I'm sure many can relate and have such things in commo
  9. Hi all I’m Darryn and I’m living in Central Otago New Zealand. I mostly carve in beef bone but I’ve done a bit of work in wood and antler as well as hard ( Pounamu ) and soft (Oamaru) stone. I pretty much like to try and carve anything - I even carved a cat skull a while ago. I’ve also made a few knives and a couple of gravers and am interested in learning about smelting and casting metal as well as just improving my carving and design skills as I’m self taught and I’ve found trial and error often provides costly and painful lessons - this site has already provided a wealth of information an
  10. I was checking out Daniel Lopacki's burrs and noticed a link to "The Carving Path". Thought to stop in and say hello. \o/ Out there/ Here is the last off the workbench in dark green Wyoming jade. Red skinned rough. ----------------------James --------------------"Digipod" on Etsy
  11. I've been looking at a Turbocarver with great interest. I want a high speed tool for carving bone and antler as well as wood. I don't have a clue as to which is the best. Any thoughts?
  12. Hi This is one of my favorite works, carved from dead standing western juniper collected from the neighbourhood hills.
  13. I mentioned in my introduction that I would post some pictures of an ice carving instillation in Texas at the Astro Dome, by a friend of mine, his name is Wang Qi (sounds like "juan chi").
  14. I have a carving lathe for sale. Need to take a photo if it. Offer a fair price as I have no idea of it's value. It works and has most all of the collets. I think one or two may be missing. Audie
  15. Hello everyone. Just thought I'd share a new piece I finished recently. It has a definite presence! This Rainbow Obsidian Spirit Mask Carving measures approximately 9" x 6" x 3" and weighs 7 LBS. I hand-mined the material from northern California, then hand-carved/shaped it, and hand-polished it. The star-shaped pattern is the backside of the carving.
