Oh, Right, I Forgot , it is an American plow plane, used by the expert farmer to plow those long, straight lines in the dirt. we all knew that?
Or maybe it's a Handled Sandusky Beech Plow Plane w/ Boxwood Nuts (they must hurt).
But then it should be the Handled Skew Rabbit Plow Plane because of the skew cutter it most certainly has.
Which ever won it is It has Won main purpose and that is to cut (or plow) a long parallel ditch or rabbit in a piece of wood before you give up and throw it into the fireplace! (btw, it doesn't work on rabbits, but Makes rabbits,Everywon knows that)
Thanks Jerome

"before you give up and throw it into the fireplace!"

Oh no BenZ ! This kind of tool never give up:


Just one minutes to make this groove... Sometimes faster than settle and start the machine.
In any case you deserve widely your price! I wait your address.


I've finished the dovetails assembly of my little workbench. Almost ready to leave in holyday. Playing with knive and wood hunk on the beach...



Plywood drawer, for tool and vise storage



closed by four bench dog




Now some pieces finished (And if I become a master in this kind of pieces,as I read above, it is thanks to every support/encouragement/advice from all TC'ers.)

This pendant ships tomorrow to its owner

My cord work must be improve, it's the first...

Two shiny koru


Have a good evening everyone!

Jérôme.

Wow, Lookit this stuff

This little work bench is Awesome!, just glue the postcard to the top and mail it along. AND Look at that JavaJava guy sitting up there ready for more detail,,SWEET.
Of course the pendants are Excellent too and I still love the Black wood the best.
Your cords are good and it is SO Easy to make them perfect from your level. Just Hold the braid tightly, alternating fingers and pulling it tight AS you braid it. The keeping the braid TIGHT makes all the difference. THEN after you have finished the braid and secured the ends, Stick a screw driver in a vice extending out horizontally and drape the cord over the shaft.( It can be anything but it should be smooth) Now grab each end of the cord with your hands and make a motion like you are Polishing the screwdriver, pulling very hard. Do this for a couple minutes and you will see the Magic begin.
Your braid will smooth out, tighten up and look like Paipo or Andy might have done it
Hope this helps.

I love that workbench/box, it's so cool to see some other fine craftsmanship that is carving-related. I was just talking to a furniture maker I know out in the water yesterday, and I'm going to try and check out his workshop when I'm over in the city next time. Those old woodworking tools are very appealing! I am going 100% old-school and hand powered for my wood setup.
Hopefully you've made some progress on the MKK while you've been on holiday....I don't recall anyone else here ever attempting a full version?

Welcome home Jerome, I'm sure you're tired after a long trip so just rest up a few minutes then Back to work??
Seriously, I hope you had a great time and cleared all the cobwebs out of your head. Thanks for the well wishes too I think I'll be carving in a day or two. Tried a bit today but it isn't gonna work yet!.

Hello TC'ers! Thank you late for reply Tikimango/Seeksurf/BigT/BD/Paipo/Benz...

The holiday was good, relaxing, sunny but not very studious for sculpture ... Only some of cord work (thank's for advise BenZ, very useful!) to deliver the last two Koru and a session of two hours to put the Kavakava on the road to progress. Also a pleasant encounter with a parisian carver for a lunch on the road...

BenZ!

How is your hand? Pleased that the card is already come, then that may be in the Yipwan also found its new home... Pleased to see that the postcard that you like! In fact, it is a field of stones lifted, dating back to antiquity and is called "menhir". It is something fairly common in Europe but rarely in such large numbers. Nobody really knows the meaning of any of this...

Some holiday pix:

White sand, sun, blue lagon water but temperature from brittany


A local Kavakava standing above a fountain lost in a field:


Lion that decorates a roof:


A dead thujas tree carving :


The owner of the garden told me that it was carved there are 5 or 6 years by a friend. "It was that or the fire" she has said...
Unicorn head detail:


After all these years, with the weather starts to rot, so she hopes to cut it to install on base.
prow of Drakkar:

No meeting with the artist, moved to the south of France...


Work pix:


Cord work for grenadill Koru:

Almost same for the pink ivory (just forgot to take the picture before delivery...)

Work in progress on the Kavakava


Paipo: I do not know if I am the first to attempt a full version (too recently registered) but I hope I'm not the last. I think it's a very good challenge for a carver... full of detail, full of work...

Foot cord vise: a technique of Indian I believe.


That's all for today, thank's for looking!

Have a nice day!



Jérôme.

Good to see your magic box in action! It's given me some insight into solving problems I've wondered about with working on smaller pieces. A very elegant solution. Those pfeil chisels are making me jealous too!
