Dan the Mechanic

By Bill Russo



Dan Powers is a friend and neighbor in Silver Shores, FL.He is always ready to help out  boat owners who aren't as mechanical as he is. Not many people are.
 I carved this little mechanic for him and his wife Linda. Dan has shed a few drops of blood around here as he crawls into tight areas to reach a problem. That's why the back view shows a Band-Aid.

I have to rely on a few traditional tools to bring out my project plans. Two of these tools are discussed here. Read the story...click here

Learn How to Carve an Eight Pointed Star

From our friends at TREELINE



Learning how to carve is incredibly fun! Quite often people ask what kind of project should someone start with to learn the basic carving techniques.  We have found that by learning how to carve this 8 pointed star you can learn the 3 basic cuts (stop cut, push cut, and pull cut) and you have the chance to practice over and over again.
