Ryland Craze's Carving Attempts - #11 Blades

Recommended Posts

This will be my first attempt at carving since I was a Cub Scout earning my Whittling Chip Award many years ago.  I ordered the carving blanks from the NRG and received them a couple of days after placing my order.  I am amazed at the fine details created by the laser.  I mounted my carving blank using the instructions in the Getting started....mounting your carving blanks...and removing them when finished topic.

 

The next step is to remove the char from the blank.

Great to see you in the shop Ryland....hope you are doing well.   Enjoy the carving.  One thing I did was draw in on the blank where all of my stop cuts were going to go before I started carving.

I have been working on my carving and have attached a picture of my progress to date.  I may clean it up with some 600 grit sand paper before I release the carving from its backing.  I think it will look a lot better once I apply some wipe on poly to this.  One result of this carving is that I want to get back to working on my Longboat, which is long overdue for some attention.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
