    Whittling

    While im thinking up my next project, i came to remember what my D&T assistant teacher taught me back in sec sch. "If you cannot draw it in flat plane(2D), you cannot visualise the object in 3D". That was said to me when i tried to 'see how it goes', starting my prototype without a detailed...

    Haha okay. Probably my definition of 'whittling' isnt all that well shaped. I came across the term while searching for wood working without using power tool + doesnt produce much wood dust. Perhaps i made you feel so as i want my finished product to have a definite form. One that i am very...

    Im a frequent customer of theirs! And i forgot to mention. I would move on to test out paulownia wood from daiso, after i use up the other block + dead whale's body. When i want to make flatter things. They come in ~1inch thickness. 2 inch and 3 inch cubes too,but i dont think it will be of...

    If it is the part with the small drill, its used as a handle when applying finishing. Dont think i want to hand hold it while i spray wax all over my hand, nor place it on a piece of newspaper or smth(it'll most likely stick to the surface)

    which part of it do you think it doesnt? Except the fact that i'll be sanding and applying finishing layer to wood after completion.

    Thanks for thinking of me! Some of the knives do look pretty cool. I like how simple the designs are. Dont think i'll have any used for them though, as i already have ones and am going to follow the '1 lens principle' here. Thanks though!

    I hope you enjoy it then! Cant offer you any advise since im also new. From what i've read though, try to revolve your design around areas of the timber without knots. The pine's texture and color might prove to be of use. Some instances while i was working on the whale, i had to shift to face...

    Thanks for the pin vise suggestion, the location greatly helps too! As for the sanding sponge, what grit should i be looking for?(assuming it is not much more expensive compared to general use sand paper)

    The dremel system seems a little too elaborate and expensive. As for the sharpening system, on lansky's websitrle theres a 'pocket' set that would seem to occupy less space in my small room. Seems like its not as receded as similar ones meant for kitchen use, hence i can put the short blade...

    Anyone have an idea whr to get a small pen sized&shaped drill? Need it to poke a stick through my work, use as handle while i apply the finishing oil/wax/polish. Another thing is, i shifted to using a craft pen from daiso, since i cant get the bought-unsharpened specialty whittling knife sharp...

    Basswood. As shown in pic. So far its the only place i can find basswood at. Its the art shop across the road(in an old building) from la salle art institute. Comes nicely packed and with label. Patronize them and keep our local timber source up and running! They sell various sizes...

    Cant decide which camera to get for Christmas

    Not doubting that. Just each to their own preference i believe.

    Sounds like less of a pain, and more fun to do it via trial and error.

    Cant decide which camera to get for Christmas

    Well thats probably true. But its more with damage being non permanent. I think theres many like me, cant stand a speck of imperfection on my electronic gadgets :)

    Cant decide which camera to get for Christmas

    Atleast i need not worry about CLEANING the sensor. 'disposable' sensors ftw! As for the scanning, dust and scratches can be easily removed via scanning software. Not that it'll affect the image too much anyways. But for me, i cant tolerate a speck of dust on my shiny electronic! Dont ask me...
