Wood carving projects

Post by OLDE CUTLER » Tue Feb 20, 2018 9:52 pm

Usually my wood carving projects seem to go in this direction.
Wood Duck, Hooded Merganser, Canvasback, Pintail at front.

Or sometimes like this.

Redhead on cherry box.

Now days I used an Exacto carving knife for the mini decoys, disposable blades, but I still resharpen them.

Those are really nice OC. I have only one wood carved duck from Big Sky Carvers. Maybe you should open a store here and start selling some. ::nod::

Thanks for your comments. I have been carving decoys, both full size and mini since 1986. Never really tried to sell them. We have quite a "flock" around the house now. On the full size, I still use my Grandpa's RT Brand draw knife that is over 100 years old. Wow, what an edge you can put on that one.

A good looking Viking you've got there. I've seen some Santa stuff on here. About the only carving I do on anything with a face is when I shave of a morning. That Viking is great, be sure and post any Santas you do.

The idea is simple - cut away everything that doesn't look like a duck.
It's the talent part that escapes me!

Some absolutely beautiful work, OC!!

I have not been there yet, but have a book that has many photos of the decoys in the museum there. Some very old and historic pieces. Totally out of my league. I use patterns by Anthony Hillman, which are patterned after decoys from around World War I or shortly before. The working decoys from that period had feather details painted on instead of carved in. The woods used are what was plentiful in the individuals area of residence. I have used mostly cedar and pine in my ducks.

Here is another kind of decoy that I have made. This one has a 3/4" board for the base and another 3/4" board for a vertical riser and a separate piece for the head (so the section would be an upside down T shape). Then hoops of wire are attached to the sides of the base board and over the riser and into holes on the other side of the base board. Then canvas is stretched over this and tacked to the wood. Spraying water on the stretched canvas will make it shrink tightly to the frame work. It is then painted in the conventional way, which further shrinks the canvas. The advantages of this method is that it used much less and smaller pieces of wood, as well as being lighter to carry out to the field in big quantities. I mounted this one on a base and made it into a lamp. It makes kind of an interesting looking goose decoy. This style was used in the early 1900s in parts of the country that did not have large trees to make full size solid body decoys.

I have had this Crosman 1377 air pistol for quite a few years, and never liked the stock plastic grips and forend that came with it. So I recently whipped up a set of walnut ones. Sure looks a lot better and feels better too.

The standard cheesy plastic ones.

The inletting for the forend is probably the trickiest part. It has to fit tightly and is pinned to the pump lever.

Very nice, OLDE CUTLER!
I found one of those Crosman air pistols at the dump many years ago. Took it back to the maintenance shop and put in a new O ring and pumped her up. The sights weren’t much but fun to mess with. We’d all go to jail today for stunts like that on school property. ::facepalm::

Thanks for the comments on the grips. I bought a couple of airguns a few years back when rimfire ammo was hard to get and expensive. They will make just as good a hole in paper targets as a 22lr will. The Crosman 1377 shoots better than the "jerk behind the trigger" can. Like the 10/22 Ruger, there is a lot of accessories available for the 1377. Mine still has the plastic breech, I would like to upgrade it to a steel breech and better sights.

OLDE CUTLER,
I dug around and found my old Crosman, it too is a model 1377. In script on the right side it says "American Classic" and there is a serial number on the left side. The frame appears to be made of some kind of pot metal, lots of the black finish is missing around the trigger guard. Yours appears to be much more refined than this refugee from the county dump 30 years ago. I'll have to clean it up and run a BB through it. :)

It has been a little cooler here the past few days, so I got out into the garage and did some pen turning.
From left: Indian Rosewood, a pair of oak burl, 2 walnut with maple bands, Indian rosewood/maple, and 2 walnut/maple/zebra wood laminate.

That's very nice! I've never seen one like that.
I whittled out a simple fish looking lure for decoration. Think I'll do a few more in different colors and maybe add a trebble hook to a few.

OC, typical of your very fine work. Always exceptional!!!! ::nod:: ::tu:: ::handshake::
Doug, I had a friend in Ohio many years ago that whittled his lures and used them. Yours looks great and the paint job as well. ::nod:: ::tu:: ::handshake::
