Hey,

Gonna try my hand at carving some panels. I didn't see much information here for panel carving and wondered if anyone else is carving them? I want to cover some beams on my patio.

I have started by penciling out my geometric design and will go back and add more details as this progresses.









Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for your time!

PTD

Check out any of the Bamboo Ben threads. He has the router action down.

If using a router, use a face shield.

No routers this time around...getting used to using the chisels on this one.

Best way to clean up the carving areas?

I get an order about once a month for panels and trim.

Here's some I did back in January for a local tiki bar.



There are others on TC that have done panels and posts... check out some of the backyard pics... Howland has some great work on this outside bar.

As for keeping things clean, the key is keeping the tools sharp!

What's the proper tools/chisel to use for this kind of work? I've been thinking about trying something like this; I want to create a crown molding for a room in my home.

That sure is some nice work Lake Surfer!

Progess for today (until the house painter called and I had to emtpy the patio so they could power wash the house)...





Using a set of chisels I picked up awhile back. Twelve differt types, although for this project I have only used two.

I'll keep plugging along...and having fun while doing it. (Although cross-grain carving is a challenge).

That's a good start Tiki D.



You might want to purchase a V Gouge if you don't have one yet.

Gives a clean cut and as long as its sharp you won't have cross-grain problems.

Looks like a good start. Which chisels did you use so far?

A little more progress today. Just working on this in my spare time and getting a feel for using the chisels.







And the only tools I have used so far...



Mahalo!

3/8" V-tool, would work alot easier for what your doing. Just don't try to take out to much waste all at once.

Looking good. Do you mind if I ask what kind of wood you are using? I've been trying for months to locate some basswood logs with no luck at all. Most online suppliers only supply planks.....so maybe I'll start with that.

Actually it's American Cherry oiled with medium dark Watco Danish oil. The final moldings are carved from African Mahogany. I'll post pics soon....V
