Hawk in the.... Server

Back to June 10

It's all good brother.

No problem.

Welcome to the Carpentry channel.
I'm JHawk. I do wood working as a hobby. Some of the things I've made over the years have been anything from bread bowls and spoons to religious shrines. My dad and I used to make spendles and odds and ends doodads when I was little.

If you have any questions or insight feel free to share.

Here is how I imagined we would progress, initially:

Tools and tool maintenance.

Hand carving:
1- Pocket knife
2-Chisels
3-Mallet

To start out with, you will need two items.
1- a blade
2- a sharpening stone

A dull blade does as much damage to the wood you're carving on, as Michael Obama's apendage did to Barry's bunghole.

Keep your knife sharp. Just get used to sharpening it before and after you carve.

Makes short work of your wooden muse.

You will notice a pattern of continued sharpening.

We all have been guilty of neglecting our tools, it happens. We should strive to not let it happen, but in case I does here is how to fix it.
Your general enemy will be rust, as we are dealing with mostly metal objects.

.
If you run into something like this, a little surface rust. The best way to attack it is:
a little penetrating oil,
and fine sand paper.

Spray the oil onto a rag, wipe down the blade. Let sit for a couple minutes then wipe off any loose deposits of rust.
Take fine sand paper and knock off any remaining rust.

@Yuma County LOL! Yeah, it could be way worse.
@Deleted User my family runs a small farm. We do a little produce, but mostly we raise cows and sheep. The sheep are raised for both their wool products but also for meat. So I'm also a kinda 'Edward scissor hands' kinda Barbour. LOL

But yeah, the blade in question was one of my old blades that I don't really use. It was in a drawer in the barn. So, that one surely was neglected LOL. I figured others could learn from that mistake.

@Deleted User
There are many ways, and devices to sharpen your blade. I use stones. I found a few old ones at antique shops for cheap. They last for ever. I used to use a file to sharpen various blades. The issue with using a file is it dramatically removes material from your blade. Ive always heard that the edge doesn't hold as well with a file sharpened blade. Stones sharpen your blade, ever so slightly. It takes longer, especially if you neglect to sharpen your knife and allow it to get too dull.
.
Now on the stone, everyone has their own opinion as to how you should move the knife along the stone to sharpen it. For example, my father likes a circular motion on his stone. I will, for instance, use a circular motion on the point of my knife. Then I keep the blade pretty flat, angled slightly, as to keep the same edge as before.
.
Ultimately you want your knife to have a long happy life, aiding you in your adventures. A stone will extend it's life dramatically, comparatively.

Uh, yes. Hello? Hello sir?

So a little background on me

My dad made wine when I was growing up, so I have always been around brewing.

I make meade

I'm also a Master Beekeeper

At our height, before the hive collapse, we had almost 100 hives

Then in a span of a less than a year we went down to less than 30.

Between a huge increase of Hive pests and bees just leaving, we had lost almost 70 hives

It was devastating.

@nils I'm the Carolina Coordinator. Let me help get you squared away.

I am very proud of our guys! NC and SC came together and executed a successful day of activism.

Looks great guys!
