Open Apron Nesting Tables #2: Ebonizing and Burl Matching

4 hours ago by shipwright | 8 comments »

I didn’t take any photos of the ebonizing process originally, but since several people expressed an interest I made a little video today. It shows the process in real time on a piece of off-cut Walnut from one of the legs. Ebonizing is a simple process that lots of people do and it works well on any naturally high tannin wood. I understand that with the addition of outside tannin in the form of a tea wash it can be effective on non tannin bearing woods as well although I have no expe...

FANTASY MARQUETRY #6: Learning to drive my Chevalet

13 hours ago by stefang | 13 comments »

After getting the packet ready for sawing I put clear packing tape on the top and bottom, partly to lubricate the blade and more importantly to give a slick surface to slide well in my Chevalet clamp. Another advantage was to protect the paper design, as shown below. After that the fun began. I drilled an entry hole in the hat band buckle which will be eliminated with a later cutting and put the cut out on the picture. It slid around a lot, so I cut a piece of transparent plastic s...

So, this is my first post. I was thinking of taking some photos of my home workshop but the camera refused to work so all I have is some text. I have a finished project that I will upload soon and I’m working on one at the moment, It will be done in some weeks. A table with a framed herring bone parquet of Cuban mahogany or Santos Palisader (Rosewood). I also have a lot of tools that I will post about soon. I hope I will have time to add some interesting content soon.

The Perfect Day

18 hours ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

We all get them every once in a while. A day we consider to be 'perfect'.I am sure that description can very greatly from individual to individual, depending on peoples' goals, likes and taste. I think it even varies from day to day for everyone, as our lives and seasons are ever-changing as well.As I mentioned yesterday, I had an early eye doctor appointment that I had completely forgotten about. I had thought I posted the date in my Google Calendar, but apparently I did not, as ...

LJ members posts photographs appearing on other sites

19 hours ago by robscastle | 10 comments »

This blog is to make LJs aware (if not already) of the fact the pictures posted as projects and blogs are being accessed and used on other websites. It doesn’t surprise me that its happening but I was left to wonder how it could be possible without the authors permission or the LJs web site administrators allowing it. Here is an example I found whilst searching for more Sam Maloof style joints. I did another search and found this website showing amost the exact pictures. ...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #5: Finished

20 hours ago by icemanhank | 2 comments »

Hi everybody, I have finished the flute now and I am very happy with how it has turned out. I was quite concerned about getting the finger holes correct and had some help from Charlie Mato-Toyela who spent about 90’ on the phone from the USA to Australia to help me get the pitch and the tuning correct, Charlie is a indeed wonderful person. His Youtube page is Blue Bear Flutes which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is contemplating making one of these lovely instrument...
