Projects from my humble Garage Shop. I hope to set an example, you know, for children and stuff.
Wow Aaron, I'm impressed. Excellant work my friend. Bring them to the next MWA breakfast.
Well Bill, don't get too excited until you inspect them close up. I'm still a rookie at carving. See you soon!
Looks great Aaron!
Ok, so are these spacers? For what purpose?
I sort of like typography, so I really like what you have done. Makes me want to give it a try.
Looks good, Aaron. Are you going to use them as set up blocks?
Dan, you nailed it! They are indeed spacers. They are going to become a part of my leg vise for my workbench. I didn't want to use the traditional parallel guide with a pin, so I made these spacers. They will sit at the bottom of the vise, and need to match the thickness of the workpiece. I think 99% of the time I will just use the 3/4" block, but the 4,2,1, and 1/2" blocks can be combined to hit any spacing up to 7 1/2" total.Jeff, I'm sure you've seen the wonders that Kari has on her blog. It shames me to say, but I picked the most boring font I could find to make the carving easier.
AaronSorry I couldn't attend MWA meeting last weekend and see your spacers in person. they look great online and I bet live as well!What type / size of chisels did you uuse to get these done. I would to see them at the next MWA meeting.
Todd, you were missed at the breakfast!I didn't use anything fancy, just the standard set of blue Marples chisels. It would have been good to have a curved carving gouge for some of the curves, like the 8's and 3's. But even regular chisels will get the job done.
