The Cosmati wood inlay banding is glued up in part 2 of this YouTube woodworking video. Watch how the wood segments are fit together to form the wood inlay banding log. See how the decorative pattern of the Cosmati design comes to life in this episode. You will see the woodworking method for gluing and clamping as demonstrated by the woodworker. Cauls with applied packing tape are used to distribute even clamping pressure to all glued segments. The clear packing tape protects the cauls ...
After a month of development based on the feedback I got here, I finally managed to release Carpenter Pro, this time, it calculates how many plywood sheets are needed to finish your project and get detailed cutlist diagram for each stock sheet needed. It allows you to specify the dimensions & grain direction for your stock sheets material, specify the dimensions and the required grain direction for each part you need to cut for your project, and set the kerf amount, then watch this app ge...
Marking out the mortises – shallow chisel cuts on outside edges and nail punch the center so forstner bit will center correctly. 3/4” Forstner bit works well. Chopping the corners out with a 3/4” chisel. Works well. Close-up of one mortise at the beginning cuts. Initial fit for the first set of mortises. Pictures of the mortise/tenon fit. Much better (less gaps) than the first box I made recently. Inside corner. Outside corner. One...
Finished cutting the mortises and everything fit pretty well. Just had to run the rasp over a couple of the joints to level everything first. Then got the sides all glued up. Diagonal measurements are the same – square overall. This one is coming out better than the first one (so far). Just more pictures of each of the square mortise/tenons.
A music video of some of my past projects. The projects range from painted floors to a home bar with a built in waterfall. Some other projects include: water walls, fountains, foil finishes, faux finishes, leafing, gilding furniture projects and a faux copper ceiling. Please leave comments and let me know what you think:)
First off, I should have used epoxy. Secondly, my experiment with coloring yellow glue went awry. Well, somewhat anyway. I found a way to make a nice dark brown color (could be used successfully on some dark walnut). I just got into the cupboard and found some cheap food coloring like they sell to color easter eggs. I added a bunch of red first, and that came out sort of magenta looking, so I added a little bit of each of the other colors: yellow, green, blue. Mixed it with regular Elmer̵...
I hope this particular blog may reach a beginning woodworker no matter what age…..we can always learn something more as we go through life. I really find that to spread the word and share some of the found history of handtools and their various crafts they help perform is a truly worthwhile campaign. I also am thrilled to see many machine woodworkers becoming more interested in the artform of handwork, it’s wonderful to share each skill electric and unplugged and learn from one...
Hello, My name is Jeremy (firm cyber hand shake). This is my first blog entry for my account here at LumberJocks. Short intro. Please excuse my spelling. Spelling has been a struggle for me my whole life.A bit about my self. I was born in Marburg Germany, but have lived the larger part of my life on the west coast of the USA. I love anything I can do with my hands. Pottery, glass work, automotive work, carpentry, cooking, brewing beer… you get the idea. I love to learn and share. I a...
Handles attached. Fitting battens for the lid. The lid with battens attached with drywall screws. The lid has been glued and screwed and is resting on the end caps. This one is all done except for the diagonal batten. Diagonal batten fitting well. Top all finished!
So, the first year has gone by, and infact, most of my second year at NSCC has also gone by. The first year was alright, its hard to remember everything i’ve learned since then, but I know its been a lot. Not just about carpentry or woodworking but I’ve really grown as a person since I left grade school. Our projects in First Year were relatively simple, first being some “task sheets” where we had to do specific things with specific tools, to build our skills with t...
