Re: Coaster?

I like the trivet idea, but you will need to call it a una-vet; it only has one leg :lol:

Re: First Lithograph effort

Re: Wrapped carvings without a line

Here is a photo of the layout of the basket weave walking stick.
Weave is extended beyond the part edge with matching edges at the top and bottom vectors.

Wrapped carvings without a line

Requests at the 2019 UGM Denver for the instructions on how to make a wrapped carved walking stick or other similar items without a line along the ends of the wrap.

Even though PDF was posted in 2014, the technicque is still relevant.

Re: Simple Shingled Roof Texture

Sometimes its about learning and practice rather then the most efficient method.
The siding and roof were made using the two rail sweep to make the shape
Array copy
Texture shape cut
Then the parts were cut to shape

Re: Design and Make Carving help

Non porous woods such as cherry, redwood, and red gum have less frizzies
3-flute spiral bits cut cleaner than straight bits
Solid carbide bits are best but more expensive
