    How did I miss this post. I'm assuming this in the new project.

    An old model maker trick. When working with wood blocks like this at times a center line is critical for measuring.

    The best way is to glue two blocks together, however add lamp black used to tint paints to the glue to darken it. When the blocks are glued you then have a consistent center line no matter how much is cut away. Also two blocks will also help reduce checking or splitting. Multiple sections can be used for more reference lines when carving. I use this technique on a smaller scale when carving propellers for my planes with different types of wood laminated together.

    Give it a try the next time.

    No worries Dan, I was only asking if I could copy this to the (How To Area) in the homepage.

    Dan, can you share with us the tools your using to shape this buck?

    And the translator will be back as soon as I can work out a few of the bugs.

    Hey, you have the same CNC shop I have. And the same model drill press. I feel so inspired.
