Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #4: Hot Sand Shading of the 2 inside panels

357 days ago by Patricelejeune | 11 comments »

It is time to do shading on those 2 first panels. The first thing I do is put the sand to heat. We have a cast iron pan on a 1500W hot plate containing about 2 inches of very fine sand. Second thing I do the shading map. When I do it home at night, while watching TV I do get a little more artistic like for the Treasure box series #1 Here I did it at work and was more practical The main action in shading is diping Depending on the species of the wood and t...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #1: Cutting Paper and preparing Marquetry Packs

366 days ago by Patricelejeune | 10 comments »

Some of new have seen our new project on other posts. We had a pretty good success with our first series, the 4 copies were sold in a year. We are going to revisit this box sold at Christie’s if my memory is good.The picture quality is not great, but we enjoyed the composition and decided to use it as a ground for our new design. The design has been finished for couple weeks now, and for the past couple days we have been working on preparing for marquetry cutting. As I ...

H-Frame Easel out of 2X4's #1: H-frame Easel - designed on the fly

466 days ago by luckysawdust | 2 comments »

My wife is an artist, and has had need of an Easel from which to work in order to keep in practice—only, her training is in the style of the ‘Old Masters’—from the French Academy, which has seen a bit of a resurgence in our modern day. All of this means, she wanted an easel that was perfectly vertical, with a tray, and a top-clamp (I honestly don’t know what else to call it, it’s my own term) that were vertically adjustable. So, like with most woodwork...

Hi, Glen is at a Lie-Nielsen workshop today & wanted to pick up some veneer at Artistry in Veneer. Some of you asked to see more of Glen’s furniture. The video was taped on the last day of Glen’s solo show at the NJ School of Architectural at NJIT by a friend of ours Edison Lee, a videographer & rock climbs with Glen. We could not do all 23 pieces in the show, so we tried to highlight some. Marie

Wood Art #10: What a fine artist does with branches

1523 days ago by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

I went to art school, and this kind of work was the domain of the “fine artists,” who make abstract art to express ideas without getting literal about it. I.e. maybe they were inspired by an apple, but there may be no actual representation of an apple anywhere in the piece, and the point was for you to find your own interpretation, which probably wouldn’t contain an apple. Much of the time, we in the computer animation major, and even those in more closely related majors,...

random #13: Bryan Nash Gill's Hemlock Relief Print

1920 days ago by Gary Fixler | 0 comments »

Artist Bryan Nash Gill has created a series of 12 prints in the traditional block printing style by inking the cross section of a very large stump of hemlock – from the mill next door to him – and then hand-rubbing large sheets of handmade paper into all the growth rings. The prints look beautiful, but at $4k/ea., I think I’ll make my own ;) Now to find a 3.5’ diameter chunk of hemlock… Some shots of the creation process[via Craftzine] And as way leads on t...

Selling Your Crafts & Art on the Internet: My new Strategy with Crosslinked Lumberjocks & Etsy.com

2015 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 30 comments »

There is an ongoing debate about whether Lumberjocks should be the focus of a marketing plan by professional woodworkers. There are quite a few professionals on this site now, all of us trying to make a living. I define “professional” as someone that makes all, or most of their income from their woodworking and craft work. Selling something once in a while from your hobby work really has nothing in common with “having” to sell something every day to buy food and s...

So you want to go pro #7: Pinky Up You Artists

2387 days ago by odie | 4 comments »

Let me explain this small delay. I work at an art gallery one day a month. You know these places don’t you? People sip their tea with their pinky up in the air there. You lugs would never fit in there LIKE I DO. “You do my ass”, you are to saying to yourself. What tipped you off? My stuff doesn’t hang on a wall? If that doesn’t mean anything to you, start at the beginning of this series. This is an artists’ co-op. Does your community have an artists’ co-op? Admit it, do you even know? This...
