In this part I am cutting in the leaves, then I will get into the butterfly. I didn’t have a pattern for the complete picture on paper, the picture was in my head. I drew in the branches w/thorns and using the window method cut and laid them in to the weave (carefully). Window for half of one done. Moving along. Working on the last leaf. That one is done. Now the odds and ends pieces of the leaves and on to the butterfly. One thing I should ha...
In the following drawing the book “The Marquetry Manual” by William A. Lincoln tells you the window method is done by starting with the farthest piece in the background. This would be #1 in the top drawing. Instead of following the lines in the drawing drawing when you come to an adjoining piece you over cut (dotted lines) into the adjoining piece. Put glue all the way around it, with a tooth pic, I put my glue in aplastic coffee can lid. Wait for the glue to dry then draw or t...
I had never done a basketweave before so this is the process I came up with. At first it was one of those trial and error things, I’m sure we have all done this. I covered the inside and outside so I had to have 10 panels. A time consuming process, but I would do it again. In this picture I am shading both ends of the pieces. I do enough to make 2 or 3 rows. I put 5 or 6 pieces in and by the time I get the last one in the sand the first one is ready to be turned or taken o...
About a year and a half ago I got a picture in my head of a box with basketweave, white roses and a tiger swallowtail. After a few days sketching and different ideas I came up with a design. This blog will show how I did the marquetry for this box. I did not take pictures while building the box, the marquetry was my main priority. I wanted it to look like something that was made to be used, not fancy, utilitarian, etc. The white oak for the box frame came out of a 100+ year old barn co...
My filming stuff has been laying all over. Batteries in one box, camera in another, tripod somewhere else. I figured it was time to make a box to hold all my stuff. I was able to cut everything on my Ridgid bandsaw and then cut all the rabbets and dadoes on my router table. Very simple yet strong construction. Click here to view on YouTube.

This will be my first bandsaw box that I have every made. Besides the one test box that I made. I am making this for my girlfriend Gabrielle, and I can’t wait to finish it. It is a surprise and she doesn’t really know my capabilities. This box is roughly 8” tall, 8” wide, and 4” deep This is what it looks like as of today 9/18/2016…
A little break in the House Renovation Action, so there was an opportunity to Work on something I’ve been building in my head for the last six months or so…I’ve had a designated ‘Work Box’ for a number of years, a box for storing personal things in at Work… My first one, I out-grew, and so I simply grabbed one that was ‘kicking around… This one is the right size for the Job, but has drawbacks… #1) It barely fits through my Locker Door (...
View on YouTube Well, here is the next part in my series of making a NASA toolbox! In this episode, I weather the box to make it look more used! Hope you enjoy!
