Complex Curve Veneered Box Series #2: Making the box Carcass and veneering

12-06-2014 06:35 PM by Matt Nudi | 9 comments »

So for the box itself, this is the basic sketchup model for what I’m going for. I am trying to model this after one of “RogerBean’s” projects, hi maple burl box. However I am adding a drawer into it so it will differentiate a little bit from his process. The hardest part will be the two meet ups of two curves that occurs on the front of the box. After some thinking, I came up with some basic dimensions and my thought process for how I was going to be able to add in...

Trio of veneered boxes #1: Intro, wood selection, and starting the cutting

11-09-2014 07:16 PM by jmartel | 6 comments »

Unlike my previous blog posts, I intend to actually finish this series. Apologies to anyone who was left hanging until the project was posted on previous ones. Here goes nothing… These projects will be a bit more complicated than previous work that I’ve done. Additionally, these will be my first experience into working with Hot Hide Glue. I was able to pick up a Hold Heet glue pot and some hide glue from someone used for only $35. The first box that I will be making is going...

Boston Red Sox Marquetry Hanging #1: Design, and first night's progress

06-26-2014 07:57 AM by jmartel | 3 comments »

After seeing a few of my other veneer works, I was approached to make a Red Sox wall hanging for someone to give as a gift. Seeing as how I am still looking for more experience on this marquetry kick I’m on, I decided to go for it. Now, I’m not a fan of Baseball period, so don’t let this logo make you think I’m a Red Sox fan. We decided on a rather large size of 24”x24” overall, which will be more beneficial to me for the small pieces that needed cutting...

Logs to Lumber #4: Amazing Grained Oak Burl from Lake County, CA (NorCal)

05-30-2014 08:48 PM by palaswood | 12 comments »

The annual memorial day weekend trip took a last minute detour as some wildfires kept us from our scheduled camping trip, but instead we went to visit my best friends Grandma up in Lucerne, Lake County, California. The surrounding hills are littered with various oak trees such as blue oak, internal live oak, valley oak, california scrub oak and several other oak species. One afternoon i went galavanting up into the hills with my bow saw and hand axe to quickly come upon a huge fallen oa...

The Ghost Burl of Clinton County Pennsylvania

05-09-2014 04:06 AM by Hacksaw007 | 4 comments »

The Ghost Burl. This story was told to me by a fellow female worker that a super large burl existed on a dirt road near my house. I had never seen it, and had traveled that road many times. She stated that it is called the “Ghost Burl” because you only see it once and can never see it again. Well some time went after that and one day in the fall when the leaves were falling down, bam! There it was, about 50 yards down from the road, and huge. I took these pic...

My Favorite Lunatic Maze Puzzle Review!

http://www.puzzlemad.co.uk/2013/08/200-posts-i-have-been-very-bad.html From Kevin Sadler’s PuzzleMad “Burling about Some time ago, I was spontaneously contacted via Google plus (which is odd for me because I did not know what G+ was and didn’t know that I had signed up for it!) Marcus Allred has been designing the most beautiful wooden mazes for over a year now. I first drooled over his work when he posted them on the Renegades forum and received advice about crafts...

River Red Gum Coffee Table #2: Levelling table top and making legs

07-27-2013 09:35 AM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

Hi again, It’s been a while as I have been away but here is my progress on the table. I have levelled the tabletop using a large belt sander and a straight edge, quite a time consuming job but I think the end result was worth the time. Then I hit it with an orbital sander using a few different grades of paper. Here is a pic after the first coat of Weatherfast Polyclear boat varnish, I decided not to fill the many holes as I want it to look as natural as possible. The varnis...

Burls: What i've got so far.

07-13-2013 02:24 AM by notwhole | 5 comments »

Hey Guys! I’m new the woodworking field but I’m always trying to learn new things and doing my best. I just thought I would show you guys some of the things I’ve been given access in these recent months. One of my neighbors is selling his property and having all of his land cleared out and cut down. With that being said I noticed a year or so before this that he’s got plenty of burled trees littering his property to which he gladly gave me permission to cut down. M...
