These are pictures of the completed table top, now comes the job of designing some table legs that will show off this beautiful Live Oak Slab
In this video I created a coat hanger from USED co2, however if you decide to hammer an unused one, let me know how that goes. The backer is pallet wood with some sort of red chemical that I refer to as paint, but I didn’t sand it, so I wasn’t worried about breathing it in. I used dry-wall anchors to put it in the wall, the heads of these screws, however are recessed in the wood and hidden behind the middle Co2 hook. I think I might consider this steampunk style?, let me know what you think. ...
Have not had much time to work on this project but I am almost done coloring the design.Still need to finish the top rim and part off the bottom.
For the past few months I have been tracking down members of the Barberry family (Berberidaceae) for its amazing yellow wood. One member (Berberis vulgaris I think) was the material used for the yellow flowers in classic French marquetry.Anyway, last fall I was able to get a few small pieces of Agarita (Mahonia trifoliolata) from LJ Jerry (nubsnstubs) in Tucson and I used it in the marquetry I did over the winter. It was an amazing colour and just to top it off, it was luminescent under black...
I’ve been waffling back and forth about the design of the leg for the leg vice; I considered doing away with the canted legs altogether because of the complexity added at the vice but I put that out of my mind today and committed to the Moravian style legs by hogging out the biggest dovetail I think I’ll ever make. First step was to mark the innermost surface of the leg, which will receive the rib. When I made my square for this project (see my last blog entry) I actuall...
As, hopefully, can be seen in the pictures, these are individual racks that fold down for use and up out of the way when not in use. These can be made to hold heavy cords and cables, or just for coats and clothing. You can adjust the size to accommodate the use to which you put them. Just adjust the measurements, as the steps indicate, and you can enlarge or reduce their size and capacity. [MATERIALS] You’ll need the following materials to build this project: 1) Soli...
This is Part 2 of a tutorial for building an enclosure for the router lift I added to the extension table on a SawStop table saw. Check it out here:http://trentdavis.net/2017/04/14/table-saw-modification-router-table-enclosure-part-2-laminate/
BOULLE MARQUETRY WITH BRASS, PEWTER AND FAUX TORTOISE SHELL - a beginners approach #3: Preparing the marquetry panels for gluing down, and sanding the panels ready for engraving.
Probably the best of the color combinations. A Premier Partie with a back ground of black and faux tortoise shell. PREPARING THE MAREQUETRY PANELS FOR GLUING ONTO THE SUBSTRATE I had already decide to use epoxy glue for my assembly – but more on this later ………. With the marquetry ‘jigsaws’ assembled on the gummed paper I used a black pigmented epoxy to fill the visible saw kerfs in the design. Traditionally, crushed charcoal mixed with shellac was used. I applied my pigmented epo...
My Worshop Number 5 is the one car garage 13 by 21 and space is like everyone …use every inch. I have found a $15 nice deal on scrap from a furniture company that sells strips and I bought the load finally. It took three trips to get it to my home/ driveway. 3 inch wide, 2 inch wide all hardwood and then the too small except for fires pile. So for 3 days I have been with the miter saw cutting lengths and prepping everything and storing. My plan was to cut most to 4 ft. len...
I am making a laminated seat for a chair its 500mm x 500mm x 50mm.I do not have any timber that size so I had to make it by laminating and jointing a series of pieces together. Layer 1 is two pieces that will do the jobLayer 2 will be 4 pieces to complete the glue up. This is the raw material I want to use. Piece 1 and 2 are what I need for Layer 1 and piece 3 and 4 butt joined to start Layer 2. But after working out I cannot cut both of them straight without reducing the wid...
