Thorsen House Cabinet #10: First cabinet door...."J'adore/j'ai a door"

04-03-2015 10:36 AM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Apologies for mangling French irretrievably there just to force out a pun…. The doors presented a few logistical challenges. Surprisingly, the internal rebate angles were the least of these. The largest challenge was in the form of how best to clamp the main outer frame whilst gluing. The frame comprises morticed hinge and lock stiles with two tenoned upper/lower rails. (the mortice and tenon sizes increased in height which the drawing does not indicate) Prior to any shapin...

Thorsen House Cabinet #8: Progressing....

04-01-2015 03:55 PM by EläväPuu | 2 comments »

Not a huge amount to add today I’m afraid. The main carcase of the cabinet has had its medium sanding completed (up to 240 grit) and the first guide layer of wax added. I’m genuinely not sure whether this is a valid or efficient method of using wax (it certainly uses up a lot of it) however it produces far superior results than those from the instructions or other methods I’ve picked up. My waxing procedure is to start early. Once all the glueup and sanding that alters fo...

I have been carry on working on the boxes with a 2 weeks pause for our february teaching session at the American School of French Marquetry. Great class, here are some pictures More here Anyway. Before the class started I had to finish the inside of the boxes with French Polish, before the room was taken over by the students. There is different way of holding the pieces with nails bent in places Or with small wood blocks I like to have it lay out...

Music Stand for Broadway Barks Charity Auction #2: The music tray angle adjuster

12-09-2014 08:18 PM by Holzarbeiterin | 0 comments »

In part 1 of this project series I introduced the project and explained the inlay process on the front (or top?) of the music tray. In my excitement to make my first blog post I completely forgot about the mechanism on the back side of the tray that connects it to the center post and allows the tray angle to be adjusted. Today’s post will be about the mechanism I used to allow for angle adjustment. The third and final post will explain my process for building the center post and feet...

Music Stand for Broadway Barks Charity Auction #1: Inlay on the music tray

12-08-2014 10:52 PM by Holzarbeiterin | 1 comment »

Hi Everyone, This is my first blog entry. I’ve never done this before so be patient with me as I learn the ropes. :-) I’m writing this to compliment the project posting I am going to be putting up for a music stand I made for Broadway Barks. It’s an animal rescue charity that was started about 15 years ago by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore. A woodworking friend of mine volunteers for the charity and encouraged me to make something for the auction. The idea was to make somet...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #13: Top incrustation

09-20-2014 12:46 AM by Patricelejeune | 17 comments »

As promised some news on the marquetry top for the treasure box series #2 The challenge here is to insert the oval white bone inlay first then cut the rest of the background repositioning the pack perfectly as some of the marquetry looks like it moves in front and in the back of those bones. I first build the pack with 4 layers of paperbacked ebony sawn veneer I used a idea of mine and an idea from Patrick to locate perfectly the veneer with the 2 drawings that had to be used...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #12: Sides Marquetry incrustation

08-28-2014 10:20 PM by Patricelejeune | 12 comments »

I have been back full time on our boxes for over a week now so I have some progress to report. I have been selecting veneer out of our veneer cellar for the ebony background. From the experience of the previous series I paperbacked the ebony as it is a very brittle wood. Better be safe than sorry Then built the packs in 4 layers without forgetting the grease paper, one of my specialty in the mistake department. Teaching marquetry has been a great help as by reminding the stud...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1372: Fifty Shades of Black

07-29-2014 11:23 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

OK. Only two. But you are here reading so I got your attention. Today will I will show you the final photos of the scroll sawn version of my "Nevermore" plaque. I finished it up yesterday, and it is heading out to New Jersey this morning to be published in the November issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine, which will come out in September. That will give those of you who want to make it  plenty of time. I am pleased with how it came out, but I still couldn&...
