Wood Turning

Hand Carved Texas Longhorn / Maple and Myrtlewood

In this video I carved a Texas longhorn out of Maple and Myrtlewood. I started by cutting out the horns with the bandsaw, and then shaped them with the Arbortech Turbo Plane. The horns were the easy part. This was my first time carving a skull, so lots of trial and error. I did the rough shaping with with the Turbo Plane and refined it with the Power Chisel, 80 grit sandpaper, and a air rotary tool.

Wood Spell Book Box – Fun DIY Woodworking Project

This was a fun project, Robin and I really enjoyed making this spell book together! I assembled and carved the pieces and Robin did all the painting. I also made a small Walnut wand to go inside. The book/box is 12″ x 9″ x 3 1/4″
