Sgabello di Fossacesia #5: Creating the marquetry panel – version 1

3 days ago by Woodbridge | 4 comments »

I’ve taken a few marquetry seminars at Lee Valley and found it quite interesting. I want to incorporate marquetry into more of my future projects.This would be my first solo marquetry attempt. I searched the internet for a picture of a trabocchi that I liked. Then I elongated it to match the shape of the oar and used the pastel feature on photoshop to create the elongated version. Next I copied a simplified version of the picture onto some tracing paper and used carbon paper ...

FANTASY MARQUETRY #4: Evolution of the Wizard Design

3 days ago by stefang | 12 comments »

WARNING An important part of this marquetry, but no woodworking involved. Since I am attempting to take you on my complete novice journey with this project I have to bring up the subject of the design again, but in more detail this time. The design for a marquetry is everything. No matter how beautiful the veneers are or how well cut and joined they are, the final project will be judged on the basis of how good the finished picture looks. You can start out with a very nice photo or ...

Small Shop Adventures #3: Mud, concrete and sawdust.

3 days ago by BrockF | 1 comment »

Before something nice can be made, you have to clear away what was. Finishing the demo. Breaking up the old foundation. Mud. This was hard to deal with because it just looks bad. Made my wife sad. For all you construction newbies contemplating your first major project like this, I want to point out planning with the contractor started in late July, clean out took a month, another two weeks from total demo to pouring foundation and then almost another two weeks till constru...

Small Shop Adventures #2: What was....

3 days ago by BrockF | 1 comment »

I seem to have started this blog in the middle and I should do the right thing and give you the meat and potatoes of why it is a real small shop adventure. Let me go back to the old garage. It had survived being whacked by tree branches in some pretty big storms, but it was old and literally rotting so anything valuable had to be kept in “dry spots”. The concrete had been put down on what looked like sand and soda ash and in some spots I found chunks of wood thrown in, like they were c...

Garage Cabinets #7: workbench fronts and top

4 days ago by John Lowell | 3 comments »

another weekend, and working on the garage, again. Cut, shaped and edged the 3/4 in ply first layer, then cut and shaped the 3/4 top layer. Used small sheet, hence the three parts and mismatched backsplash. Also mounted the cab doors and drawer fronts. Need to do a better job on the drawer fronts, just have not figured out how. I tried dbl stick tape, but the drawer was slightly inside the cab so not enough pressure to stick. Oh well, slightly different spacing but it is in the garage. ...

Solar Plane

4 days ago by PlaneTuna | 7 comments »

Got an old-looking #3 bench plane at a garage sale. The only markings on it are Solar (hard-to-read script) and the top side of the sole has “DRPa.” and “Germany”. Does anyone know what it is, where it comes from?? and is it worth restoring??I’ll try to include a photo when I figure out how to do that. Thanks!
