Transferring Images to Wood #1: Day One - Prep Work & Stickin It To the Man!

301 days ago by KnotCurser | 10 comments »

Due to a recent project I've posted, I have been asked by many LJ’ers to do a blog on just how I was able to get such a clear image fixed onto a piece of oak. Here goes nothing…......... Items Required An Image (flipped horizontally) printed on a LASER Printer. It can be color or B&W – either work just fine in this application. Paper – Regular copy paper works just fine. Do NOT use photo paper – it will most certainly not work. Wood – I prefer a light color...

Inlay #1: Table leg top face detail

428 days ago by unisaw2 | 6 comments »

This is a project from a Fine Woodworking article. Sept/Oct 2009 #207, page 70 by Garrett Hack. I am learning how to do inlay. So far I have found that sharp tools are a must. Good light with a magnifying glass are necessary for my relatively old eyes. This is small detail work. I started with a drawing to determine dimensions for an inlay on the top face of a table leg.After I was happy with the drawing, I carefully laid out the dimensions and cut the recess 1/8” deep. Most of the...

To see the finished project go here: Here is the sample piece to test the concept. I started with wood planed down to 3/8”, cut to width and left a little long for trimming.I used a 1/2” 45 degree router bit to make the grooves. They are spaces 1/2” apart and 1/4” deep, starting 1/2” from the edge. The width of your wood matters. 1/2” increments works great...To enclose and make the sides a full 1/2” I planed some 1/8” pieces...This is...

Woodwhisperer Poker Chip Tray #1: Working Out the Design & a Trip to the Cutoff Bin

2138 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 7 comments »

Hey everyone…A while back I built a hold’em poker table for a friend of mine and recently I was invited to a game at his house. When he brought out the poker accessories he had these real nice clay poker chips in a metal briefcase. I thought how nice it would be to have some wood trays that matched the table. I remember seeing an article in a Woodcraft magazine (Mar ‘07) by Marc Spagnuolo AKA” The Wood Whisperer” for some nice wooden chip trays. I dug up the ar...
