Carving a Pineapple – Episode 2

2017-03-28T12:43:59-04:00 October 28th, 2015|


This is the second of three episodes and focuses on carving the leaves. This was a great opportunity to show just how easy it can be to switch gears for a redesign halfway through a project. It's probably a good idea to watch this one right through to see which version you like best for your own project.

    Sorta glad to see that wood grain can be contrary and difficult to work regardless of the expertise of carver … I have been salvaging cypress trees from the river bottom that cuts thru our 22 acres of Hill Country in Texas (we lost some 3 dozen mature – 60 to80 ft tall – bald cypress in a 100 yr flood in 2002 and are still trying to salvage as many as possible). The hard grain separated by extremely soft tissue tends to split very easily … but the wood came free (with just a bit of work with chainsaws, winches, snatch blocks, and Hodson sawmill, etc.) and I’m trying to learn how to work with contrariness in all types of wood. Thanks for showing us how to adjust and continue with all new design opportunities. Ralph

      4-1/2″ wide by 8-3/4″ high. The template is available in the first episode of each lesson.
