OSU MascotThis is my rendition of the Oregon State University mascot Benny the Beaver. He is 5 inches tall, carved from basswood, and painted with acrylics. I was raised about 30 miles from OSU and was all signed up to go there after I graduated from high school. During the summer, I was offered a scholarship by the Navy to go elsewhere, so I did.Claude

My first carving

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


My first carving I got to try out the schaaf chisels I got a few weeks back. A guy I work with requested a sign with his last name for his wedding gift so this is my best shot. I have never done any sort of carving before so it was quite a journey. But im quite proud of how it came out. This is a peice of maple(I think) that I pulled out of a dumpster its painted with house paint and then fished in satin spray poly. I actually got the picture posted the right way! Woohoo! Never knew about the preview button.

Rosewood Dish

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Rosewood DishMy friend from Minnesota bought a slab of East Indian Rosewood and took it back to the saw mill to have it cut thinner and I got the piece that was cut off. Well his piece cracked and warped so bad that he threw it out and never made the project it was purchased for. The piece I took home to here in Mich cracked all over in the sapwood and warped a little so I cut out the heart wood and glued on a spigot and made this dish. I'll give it to him so he has something for all he spent on that slab.It is 7 1/4” x 3/4” thick and finished with Danish oil and buffed and waxed.Cheers, Jim
