Once the banding segments are organized we can now focus on creating the interior design. We’ll need a few outer rippings that will sandwich the segments together and keep them in alignment. You’ll notice in the picture that the outer hardwoods are walnut and maple glued together. In this case the walnut will be on the inside with the maple on the outside. The reason for this is to create contrasting colors within the banding and also with the mahogany picture frames that will...
Has there ever been a time when you saw a wood banding design inlaid into a table, jewelry box, or picture frame and you asked yourself the question “How did they create the banding?” I did too. Fortunately, about two years ago I came across a video on Woodtreks and it was there that I witnessed a craftsman form Orion Woodworks that explained the process of this particular banding design. The following is my interpretation. Pictured above is the look that I’m after. N...

You know how it is when you have a special photo of family or friends and you want to have an equally special frame for it. We as woodworkers have a tremendous advantage because we can create the picture frame to match the occasion. Also, we can select the woods that we want to set the mood for the picture as well as create the style that we want for the frame. On top of that we can even embellish our woodworking project with wood inlay if we choose. It just takes a little thought, desire,...
I had an old oregon pine painted door that was in pieces – unfortunately we did not take a photo of it, but we have another door that is the same design and I will take a picture of that. Hubby first decided to repair the door but as I had no use for a door we decided to leave the old paint on, cut it into two and turn them into mirrors. After hubby did the woodworking part of the project, I sanded down all the loose paint. Painted a soft blue over and then finished it with a gal...
OK we are out of the clamps with our project and we level the legs. Next we do a little more finish sanding and spray our finish. *Note one thing I forgot on the video I buy adhesive backed felt and put on the bottom of the feet to ad that “Pro” touch to it. Enjoy and if any would not mind doing me favor, how about leaving some reviews on iTunes for me. Thanks In Advance, Huck
The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com.........
This woodworking tutorial features the mitre joint. If you’ve done carpentry or woodworking there probably was a time or two that the mitre joint was a challenge. This video shows how the mitre joint can be cut and fit with great accuracy, done safely, and with ease by using a mitre sled on the tablesaw. What if you could take your wood projects to another level? Now you can. You can feel comfortable cutting one mitre or hundreds of mitre joints as the mitre sled method ensures ac...
We mark the holes and drill them out also cut the angles on the legs & body. And finally glue it up. Enjoy!
I have never attempted to do wood carving other than some chip carving but lately I have been fascinated by some of the work I have seen. I watched a guy in Savannah Georgia doing carving in front of a consignment arts shop and was captivated by his skill. My wife and I are looking for a motor home to travel the US and I was concerned I would not get to do any wood working which made me not want to do any traveling but now I think wood carving would be the ideal thing for me to do while on lo...
