    Ted Grinnell scanned this scene with the new scanner probe available for the CarveWright machine. He allowed us to use it, so I made it extra large. It's on red oak, and is 12" X 24". I think the...

    Here are the completed turnings assembled on the powder horn I finished today. It sure is fun to be able to design and then turn your own plugs and tips. I went with a high gloss finish, walnut plug...

    Okay, Okay ... I'm planning on making a Colts one too. My older brother is a Colts fan (we're from Richmond, Indiana). Our wager on the game is that the loser has to buy the winner a Super Bowl...
  13. Sorry ... couldn't help myself ...

    Da Bears ... I was worried about them at the half, but they came back strong. The Indy game was a good one to sit back and watch 'cause it didn't hurt who won. I was pulling for Peyton though. It...

    Here's the latest sign off of the CarveWright machine. I've had it about a year, so I've been making lots of chips. I found some "old wood" textures on the web, converted to grayscale in Photoshop...

    Looks like a lot of folks are jumping on them, from the comments on their forum. I've had one for over a year now and it's not a bad little machine. I have some issues with it every now and then,...

    John,
    I am originally from Richmond, IN and did sell several each year at Friendship, IN at either the Spring or Fall National Shoot (I tried to always get to both). I used to sell some at Hara...

    and waiting on the bit set to arrive from CarveWright so I can do some signs. I've only been able to do some things in pine, and wasn't real impressed with the quality of the finished work. I know I...
  22. I agree ...

    I did call Eric at CarveWright right away and we discussed the "possible" damage from shipping. He says they've been having a lot of issues with this. He asked me to send him some photos, so I...
