Open Apron Nesting Tables #1: An Interresting Commission

1 day ago by shipwright | 18 comments »

Last fall I entered my “Music” table in the Sidney Fine Arts Show on Vancouver Island and while it didn’t sell, it did attract a lot of attention. After the show a local woman contacted me and asked if I would build her a couple of little end tables. I said “sure” and the process began. She brought me the pair of nesting end tables that she wanted to replace as an indicator of size and general design but she also showed me a photo of another set that she liked...

1 day ago by hobby1 | 2 comments »

Hello,These are maple and apple tree branches, and a couple of maple cutoff slabs, from a guys shop, he had no use for them, he let me have them from his scrap bin.

This first one uses two main branc...

Applique #1: Testing, testing

1 day ago by BritBoxmaker | 5 comments »

Not sure if applique is the right term here. I’ve started exploring designs with a basic background with contrasting pieces of wood ( of varying thickness ) glued on. This is the first test piece It’s a piece of Birch ply, dyed black ( spirit based dye ). I usually use spray Acrylic finish these days. I tried using this as an adhesive. I then made up a pattern of 2 mm strips of Sycamore veneer on some transparent library film ( the sticky sort ) and applied this ( veneer si...

FANTASY MARQUETRY #5: Assembling the Packet (at last)

1 day ago by stefang | 14 comments »

I finally got all my veneer patches placed, at least those that would be cut this time. Here they are finished. The next job was to tape the layers together, first one layer and tape, then the 2nd layer always using thin tape and trying to avoid overlaps on the ensuing layers. As I added more layers the packet seemed to get tighter. I finally got the small pieces done as shown in photo 1 below and then I taped around the edges with wide tape as shown in in the 2nd photo. The...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1389: The "Two-Minute" Blog

1 day ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call to remind me that I had an eye doctors' appointment in Digby this morning.  I must be getting old because I completely forgot about it. I also thought I set my Google reminders to remind me, but I guess I forgot that as well, or I did it wrong. In any case, I have to skeedaddle out of here today and it is supposed to be a beautiful and sunny day here in Nova Scotia. My sweetie thought it would be a great day to play "hookie" ...
