The Marquetry Manual

The Marquetry Manual

04-24-2015 09:55 PM by Dennis Zongker | 11 comments »

This book was written by William A. Lincoln in 1989, which was 18 years after he wrote, “The Art and Practice of Marquetry.” This is also a very good book. I would like to say “WOW!” I wish I would have purchase this book when I very first started learning Marquetry. Instead of reading the book, “Marquetry” by Pierre Raymond which is also a great book but let’s face it, it’s not very easy to understand especially for a beginner. The Marquetry Manual has 272 pages that explain techniques...

Learning French Marquetry

Learning French Marquetry

06-25-2014 06:09 PM by RogerBean | 11 comments »

I’ve been off-line for the past two weeks, so my LJ activity went completely dark. But I’ve now returned from two delightful weeks at the American School of French Marquetry. I wanted to up my box game a bit, and thought some study with two extremely talented and accomplished craftsmen would be one way to do it. I also owe Paul Miller (shipwright) for his encouragement to attend. There have been a number of blogs and posts about the ASFM school, so I won’t attempt to repeat what’s ...

Wooden Boxes by Dennis Zongker

Wooden Boxes by Dennis Zongker

03-04-2014 08:25 PM by BritBoxmaker | 3 comments »

A nicely varied choice of boxes, with a thorough and detailed explanation of construction techniques and excellent presentation make this one of those best buys amongst books on the subject of boxmaking. Easy to follow and not in the slightest verbose. You could do worse than treat it as a reference book for the many useful techniques it describes. Pound for pound it is one of the most valuable books on box making in my collection. Well done sir.

Local school just getting started: Worth the Effort

Local school just getting started: Worth the Effort

03-03-2014 01:07 PM by Donna Menke | 7 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FToA4gh6Ths&feature=youtu.beThis school recently opened not far from where I live. I attended one of their ‘Free Friday’ classes and both learned a lot and enjoyed myself. The teacher has lots of enthusiasm and knowledge; and since he was a school teacher, he knows how to teach.The environment is extra friendly and the equipment first rate. A lot of thought went into setting this place up, and they did all the work themselves.I was there when th...

  Pepperwood Burl Writing Box

Pepperwood Burl Writing Box

02-17-2014 10:40 PM by Dennis Zongker | 5 comments »

Fellow LJ member Roger Bean wrote a great E-book on making a Pepperwood Burl Writing Box which has 119 pages filled with pictures and easy to follow step-by-step instructions. This eBook is not a repeat of volume 1; most of the materials are different and provides useful information to add to Roger’s series. I have always admired Rogers work and his boxes are beautiful. I enjoyed looking over his shoulder because a woodworker can learn a lot from others and Rogers’s style and explanations ...

Now, this is the way to cut veneer !

Now, this is the way to cut veneer !

05-21-2013 12:49 AM by shipwright | 21 comments »

I am rapidly becoming a fan of Tools for Working Wood and the Gramercy line of specialty tools. This review is about the French style veneer saw but if you look closely, you will see their superb holdfasts being used as well. When you pick up this saw you know immediately that it is like no other veneer saw you (or at least I) have ever held before. It’s teeth are coarse for a veneer saw and it is heavy .... and that’s why it works so well. The blade itself is thin and cuts wi...

Vacuum Pressing At A Reasonable Cost

Vacuum Pressing At A Reasonable Cost

04-29-2013 03:00 AM by vipond33 | 20 comments »

To begin: If space is a vacuum, who changes the bag? Hmm? Back to earth. We use a vacuum bag extensively at our shop. Everything goes in it; veneered panels & torsion box assemblies. .solid layups and curved work pressings of course. . Recently, our old bag had had the bun. Full of difficult to patch holes, it was a mess. A new one though, was going to run us $550 from our original supplier. You have to pause at that expense, grimace a bit and patch a few more times. Then, ...

Review of Dust Deputy by Oneida

Review of Dust Deputy by Oneida

03-30-2013 04:24 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 56 comments »

I bought my Dust Deputy 3 years ago and have been using it regularly since then. Many of you have probably looked at the Dust Deputy and considered purchasing the plastic cyclone with some hesitation, unsure of how it really performs. In this video I give some good context as to how I use it, with what tools, and how I have it set up. I also open up the Dust Deputy bucket to show how much dust is inside after 3 months of use, and then I open the shop vacuum to see how much dust made it pas...

Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

02-21-2010 12:20 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 58 comments »

As you look at the advertising, Oneida seems to make a pretty outrageous claim concerning the efficiency of it’s Dust Deputy, they claim it captures 99% of the dust. In case you don’t know, the Dust Deputy is a mini cyclone that fits on a 5 gallon bucket lid which acts as a particle separator for your shopvac. I have been interested in this claim, and cautious, because I am interested in good dust collection for my shop. I collect as much dust at the source as possible, this is...

Pocket Hole screws By Hillman sold at Lowes

Pocket Hole screws By Hillman sold at Lowes

01-02-2013 10:12 PM by gbrown4 | 9 comments »

I notice last time I was at Lowes that they started carrying Pocket hole screws by Hillman. Ialso notice that they did not carry the pan head style. It was my understanding that you need pan head if you wanted to cover the screw with a plug. Everytime I use the washer head it sticks up out of the hole. Am i correct?
