Thumbs up

Lol! Shep... I used to but, happy now not in the "Rat Race"

Thank you guys for your comments.

My carving is suffering like my biking 'n' Triking... I started this at the last main woodworking show I've done... Edinburgh Ingle stone Woodworking show nearly three years ago.. My muscles and joint are getting worse and it is becoming more an' more difficult to carve for any length of time and of even just hold the tools.. But, hey I am still teaching, so I am still useful Lol!

But has you can see from my latest (Almost complete) self portrait carving I am still built like a small house..... with a perfectly tone body

Ride safe mate all take care

WHEN!?!?!? He is finished he will be on a Oval Marble plinth, The Pear wood around his wrists will be patterned to look like leather wrist bands, he will have platted copper amulets on both arms to match the head band.

The hands have taken four attempts to carve the fingers have to look as if he is holding the sphere , they just seemed to snap when I was near completion... This time it is looking like I have cracked it... I mean I think I've done it (Got away with it) To make the hands this time I used small blocks of wood with the grain going in different directions to give them more strength, carving them from one piece was very difficult due to all the different angles/plains that needed to be cut.

Around the sphere there will be another copper band approx. 1" wide 1/16th thick which will have the Astrology birth signs silhouette's cut into it, this will follow a horizontal plane/path around the sphere. Thank you all again for you comments

Lovely bit of work Clive. Must have taken a lot of effort and skill to do that.

Are the hands gripping the band or held out flat as if the sphere was solid? Just curious about a stunning piece of work. Always a fan of depictions of classical myth and religion.

Hi He is Atlas.. Things have moved on since the photographs were taken (last Monday) The hands were flat originally but, now the fingers are gripping the sphere rim with the thumbs on the underside.. The original design was for a dinning table for myself but, when I moved here I found myself limited for space and health/mobility. (Won't bore with details)

So after getting myself sorted I decided to make a smaller version... I carved him with his hands flat to support a round piece of 6mm glass, I engraved the glass with my celestial sphere, colour of the glass was an heavenly/spacey glass paint wash with silver lines to represent the sphere.... While both looked good (Not been big head) BUT, both together looked crap, total crap! So I went conventional and changed to a sphere.. The Earth will be painted it, may be a coloured spiral of colours as Earth looks from space or I might adding the land mass??

You can,
1, Get a nice piece of Lime wood, kiln dried is better than wet/green timber because it won't crack or warp (Do not consider a lump of "old" Oak just yet!

2, Get advice on which tools to buy old or new, don't matter. (remember sets are not always the best ask a carver, not a salesperson, manufacturer.... Unless you know that "they can carve!"

3, Learn how to get a sharp edge (I mean a carvers edge not a manufacturers edge, there is a big difference!)

Borrow a DVD Woodcarving say "getting started in woodcarving by Michael Painter or books by Chris Pye, OR , Buy a child's colouring book, pick a page, make photo copies, stick a copy on to your wood, either use a "V" tool or a small "U" shaped tool (Fluter) and cut along the line, making sure you are going in the same direction of the grain (You will see if wrong because the wood will tear)

Line cutting or incised carving... You could then remove the back ground that becomes "low Relief carving" Then remove the squarness and have a go at shaping the edges, work some of the background, that becomes relief add more depth perspective/distance it become "Deep Relief".... Cut all the waste wood off just keeping your rounded figure, carver the otherside, join it all together and there it is your first "In the Round" carving.... Easy I tell yer ... you all can do it!

Thanks Clive but i will have to pass on that for some reason i find working with wood difficult
But i can build a dry or wet stone wall (the only qualifications i ever got )

To be honest i don't think i have an artistic bone in my body looking at your work it would be sacrilege for me to try

Dry stone walling etc.. Another great Traditional trade/skill.. I used to watch the guys build/repair walls in the North Yorkshire Dales..
