You’ve taken to reading imagist poetry?! I just don’t know you anymore.
I sympathize with Lowell. Like her, I am a lesbian, publisher and am sometimes accused of being a charlatan.
I didn’t know you were Lesbian. I have some friends that are, from Beirut in particular, if I’m not mistaken.
Are you going for the superfecta of a pulitzer prize as well?
Like her, only in death.
I thought you were only a lesbian in college.
Try using a v-tool to remove some wood around the inside perimeter of whatever you are inletting, about 1/16 or less from the perimeter. Then remove the interior with a straight chisel, and then go back and use your gouge to the finished line. Using the v-tool is easier than pounding a full size gouge over and over. But it doesn’t make nearly as pretty a design.
A V-tool tends to run away from me at times. Hence my Spirograph approach….
The v-tool takes a little practice, and is certainly harder to sharpen. But if you have sharp or delicate details on the design you are inletting, it keeps the details from splitting off after the strain placed on it from hammering the gouge straight in. It’s a worthwhile tool to learn, for many things.
But I do love a spirograph. Although I understand they can only be gotten rid of with penicillin.
I eagerly await an article on Spirography for woodworkers!
It seems a shame to cover/remove that cool design. Of course if you are going to do it, some sweet brass hardware is the may to go.
*way to go.
When I saw that first picture, I thought it was of a pattern that you were applying to the wood. Which makes me think, “that’s a cool idea to try”
