Lucet

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


LucetA handmade Cedar Lucet I made several years ago and never got around to posting. They are becoming popular especially with Medieval reenactors. Cheers!Lucet Info:
A lucet is a tool used in cordmaking or braiding which is believed to date back to the Viking and Medieval periods when it was used to create cords that were used on clothing or to hang items from the belt. Lucet cord is square, strong, and slightly springy. It closely resembles a knitted I-cord or the cord produced on a knitting spool. Lucet cord is formed by a series of loop-like knots and therefore will not unravel if cut. Unlike other braiding techniques such as kumihimo, finger-loop braiding, or plaiting, where the threads are of a finite length, lucetted (or knitted) braids can be created without pre-measuring threads and so it is a technique suited for very long cords.Links:

large bowl from maple segments

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


large bowl from maple segmentsripped the angles with table saw, cut the curves on the bandsaw. Getting the inside smooth was quite a task. Lot of scraping and a lot of sanding obviously. Measures 15” dia. x 9” h. The pattern on top rim was burned on but in hind sight I now wish I'd have just left it bare.

Butternut Comfort Bird

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Butternut Comfort BirdIt's been a while since I last posted. Here is a Butternut comfort bird I hand-carved back in 2011. These birds are popular as they are quick and easy. This is my first Butternut piece and I loved carving it. Holds detail well and carves like basswood. A simple light coat of Deft sanding sealer and wax for a finish so it will be durable and soft in the hand. I hope to eventually make one in every wood species. Cheers!
