- Sorry, But I Have to Mention Fire Safety
LostArtPress on InstagramThe scene across the street last week — a workshop fire. Luckily no one was hurt and the damage was minor. I wrote about the topic of shop fires today on the Popular Woodworking blog.Simple Tool Cuts. In many respects this is the simplest form of carving. There is no attempt at modelling of any kind, the effect being obtained purely by simple cuts with gouge or chisel. At the same time it calls for neatness and clean cutting. It can be extremely effective, especially when used as a repeat or variegated pattern, and was widely used during the oak period of furniture making. It is closely allied to chip carving where the effect is also obtained in the simplest way by making cuts which meet in the thickness of the wood, so allowing the chip to come away easily and cleanly. — from “The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years: Volume I” published by Lost Art Press #The_WoodworkerSaw some amazing ripple molding at the Holland History Museum (in Michigan) including this stunning stuff around a 17th-c painting.
