Marquetry……a gaming table of pewter, brass and faux tortoiseshell…….various techniques #2: Marquetry using metals and update of the gaming table project
Just completed and placed an instructional video on YouTube. It is on making packets of metal for cutting. You can search YouTube for Marquetry Using Metals to see it. The making of packets of metal sheets is very similar to those of wood veneers; however, there are a few precautions and alterations that make it important to differentiate. The video layers pewter, brass and faux tortoiseshell——-all about 22Ga. thick. I also submitted an article on this subject but in more det...
So I am making some saw dust and I go to turn on my 22-540 planer and I hear a crunch. I get a sick feeling knowing that I am either going to be out some time or money or both. It turns out that the dust hood 50-359 shifted and was caught in the blade. The shroud is salvageable. However the blades need to be changed. I look up how to do this with out the knife setting jig. I cannot buy one because it is out of stock. I learned how set planer knives with this video: http://www.youtu...

Hi, all…I am new to this, but here goes. I have been turning about 14 years. Just built a 16’x20’ shop. Equipment is: 16”Jet bandsaw, Jet mini lathe, new 1221 Jet lathe, Jet dust collection system, Porter Cable belt/disc sander, drill press, and a bunch of minor stuff. My claim to fame are my wine glasses…I have sold them world-wide, and I even have a set in the White House! I also make Cremation urns for pets and people, Sea urchin Christmas ornaments, and many ...
Just when I thought that my hundreds of little summertime bunnies would bring with them the warmer weather, I awoke this morning to another four inch or so blanket of snow. Perhaps they are ‘snow bunnies’! It is pretty, though. And the sun is shining brightly and it looks quite clean and beautiful again, so I don’t think I really mind. After all, if I DID mind it, would it even matter? Living in Nova Scotia during the latter part of February usually means that it wi...

Out in the shop today, and I was not screwing anything up! Yeah ! I’m working on an old Delta 18 inch C Arm type one Scroll Saw. I have contacted two LJ scrollers here for advice , ”ArtistryinWox” and ”Verne Bueler” have been ever so helpful. I have previously blogged about this trash or treasure saw and my process as well as getting help. Thanks for the support. ArtistryinWox told me that he had put wheels on the Delta tri legged base, but had to remov...
Hi, one of the investments a beginner woodworker thinks they really need is a nice cast iron bench vice. Now, I’ve been doing this professionally since 1982. In @ 1994 I got a used /discarded slab of laminated rock maple with a vice on one corner. some school threw out several student benches with the vices on them. some local persons “salvaged” them from the dumpster. my truck may have been used and I got one…. I never use it.I had gotten used to by then a homemade v...
