The best electric chainsaw will give you access to a wide-range of useful features. From comfortable operation to long battery length, a quality model is all about providing an easy to use experience. Unlike their heavy-duty, gas-powered counterparts, electric chainsaws are all about simplifying the design to save your money. When you only need a chainsaw for projects around a shop or at home, an electric chainsaw model is a great device to get the job done without selling out upwards of a thousand dollars.

Our Sandy Springs, GA store is holding a Freedom Pen Turn-a-thon event this Saturday, 5/27 from 9 am to 4 pm. The Freedom Pens Project is an all-volunteer effort spearheaded by the members of SawMill Creek Woodworkers Forums to provide custom hand crafted pens to American Service Men and Women overseas. Show your support by helping us produce custom pens for our Military serving abroad. Everyone is welcome, even if you have never turned before; we will teach you. We welcome anyone who is interested in our project and willing to donate their time, talent or services to assist us in providing beautiful writing instruments for our military who are in harm’s way. Every Freedom Pen that is delivered will serve as a constant reminder to our troops that they are not alone and will have our continued support until every one of them returns home.

I was anxious to get started on this project, so I got to it first thing today. Here we go: Part 5 ~ Carving the design.

When I think of "carving", I think of knives, gouges, sweeps, veiners, chisels, etc. For this reason, I don't really think of what I do as carving, per se. It's more like machining, or filing, if you will, since files and rasps are all I use in making canes. But it is cutting, in a way, so call it what you will.

In this example, all I will use is a 1/4" round, coarse file, or rasp, shown in pic 1. (And yes, i did make the handle). In other designs, I have used everything from chainsaw sharpening files, triangular machinists files, the 7/8" wide four-in-hand wood rasp, and the two blue-handled chisels which have coarse, flat and half-round rasps built in. These two (and one other) are 1/2", 3/4", & 1" wide. I bought them, not so much for the chisels, as for the half round wood rasps!

Now that my design is all drawn in, I simply file a groove on each line of the design. I try to go about 1/8" deep so the design stands out well. However, on some of the smaller diameter sticks this is not possible without weakening the cane. This process takes time ~ LOTS OF IT! It's better to go slow. Take your time, this is supposed to be a relaxing hobby. If you rush, you will make a mistake. (Believe me, I know). I also try to file right on the center of thr line, in order to keep the "ropes" uniform in size, as well as the diamonds.

As I said, this takes time. So give me a few days to work on this before we get to step 6. In step 6 I will be rounding over the ropes and cleaning up the grooves. We're havin fun now!
