Custom Intarsia Keepsake Box #9: The Kitty

08-19-2013 01:12 AM by wdkits1 | 3 comments »

For the Intarsia kitty, I will be using 3/8” holly for the white sections and to achieve the striping for the body I decided to do a lamination using Wenge for the black, Canarywood for the orange and Bloodwood for the red. I planed the stock for the strips down to 3/8” thick and cut the bloodwood and canarywood into 3/16” wide strips. Run through the planer to get 1/8” finished strips. The Wenge was cut into 1/16” strips. I wanted the blank to have a sligh...

NOT your average screen door: more chopping work

10-12-2014 05:49 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to work on the other rail. Cleared the bench of the other items, they found a home on the panel blanks for now. Someone asked about the use of Visegrip Finger clamps Well, they work very nicely for the mortise jig I have. Anyway, a little better layout this time around. Last time, the mortises were too close to the ends. NORMALLY, one would leave a “horn” on each end, then saw off the excess when things were done. OOPS, well, I decided to move the mortise IN a ...

So I decided to carry on with some of the pending jobs.So I’m now working on a small counter for the workshop of a therapeutist. This is the first time I post a project in progress. Here are some of the first handmade ...

Yin Yang #4: Putting the Yin with the Yang

01-28-2010 10:58 PM by MsDebbieP | 3 comments »

Jan 28/10 With the pieces prepared, the next step was to try and put them together into a square and get all the four corners to match. Yah… I had it once, moved the pieces and then couldn’t get it to work again. That was frustrating! I decided to glue one section onto the walnut and just go from there. Once the one piece was down it was easier for me to adjust the other three and eventually I got it close enough and glued and clamped them. With the project almost done, I...

01-13-2011 07:29 PM by Cory | 3 comments »

I was just noticing that I’ve been an official LJ for 2 years now. Man. I’ve learned so much from all of you, so thank you. Thank you for all the great comments and advice. Thank you for the never ending supply of inspiration. Just, thank you. I also noticed that I haven’t posted a project in 122 days. Really? I’ve certainly been a busy boy over the last 122 days. I don’t have pictures of everything, but here’s some of what I’ve built: -...
