FANTASY MARQUETRY #13: Fresh out of the press

09-20-2014 06:13 PM by stefang | 10 comments »

The veneer press worked perfectly for me using the hot hide glue. I brushed glue on the picture back and the substrate and rubbed it in with circular motions to make sure there would be no dry spots. Here is the sequence of the pressing procedure. This was photographed as I took it out of the press, but I am showing the sequence backwards to give you an idea of how I prepared the glue up for pressing. Photo below: a plastic layer to protect the bottom press caul from glue squeeze-out. ...

Roubo-ish Workbench Build #3: Bump in the build, or how a crappy mobile base can bring an Italian Stallion to a halt...

09-20-2014 08:53 AM by BikerDad | 0 comments »

So, I’ve managed to get everything face jointed and the first of the big lamination done. I’ve decided I’m going to go with 8 segments in each half, at least for the moment. The first big lamination was 4 segments, and I had intended to do 3 more 4 segment laminations. That plan has changed though, for two reasons. First, getting all four segments to align turned out to be more trouble than expected. Second, too messy. I’m going to do them in pairs, then glue the...

Cast Concrete Sharpening Stand

09-20-2014 07:08 AM by Shawn Herrington | 2 comments »

I worked an internship at a machine shop and ever since then, I have been suffering withdrawal from the availability of precision measuring equipment especially the large granite surface plates we used for doing Quality Assurance checks on parts. I find myself sharpening with a variety of different methods including scary sharp (sandpaper on a flat surface). While I have both plate glass and 12”x12” granite tiles that work perfectly well for this purpose, without a dedicat...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #2: After Six Days of Exposure

09-20-2014 02:02 AM by Roger Kimmel | 1 comment »

This is the box after two more days exposure, for six days total. It isn’t much darker than it was after four days, so I’m going to call the experiment over. I’d like for it to be a bit darker, but at least I got the contrast I wanted with the basswood lid and pins. Even the basswood took on a bit warmer shade. This is why I put the lid in to fume with the sides. I thought that the pins might darken, and I wanted them to match the lid. Here is the box before fuming:One...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #13: Top incrustation

09-20-2014 12:46 AM by Patricelejeune | 10 comments »

As promised some news on the marquetry top for the treasure box series #2 The challenge here is to insert the oval white bone inlay first then cut the rest of the background repositioning the pack perfectly as some of the marquetry looks like it moves in front and in the back of those bones. I first build the pack with 4 layers of paperbacked ebony sawn veneer I used a idea of mine and an idea from Patrick to locate perfectly the veneer with the 2 drawings that had to be used...

It has been awhile

I know it has been awhile since I posted. But I have been busy with work and playing with my new toy. Plus dealing with the loss of both my Mother and my wife’s Mother within two weeks of each other, has been a really trying year. But the reason for this post is to show you my new baby and toy. Rikon 70-100 mini lathe. Bigger than my old one and Wow what a difference.
