Mondrian (inspired) #5: I get knocked down, but I get up again

10-22-2011 03:29 PM by BritBoxmaker | 16 comments »

You ain’t ever gonna keep me down. Lyric spotters please feel free to comment. I left you, last night, as I was hacking at the pattern board with a chisel. No, I’m not mad. I’ve done all the tests. It worked. I repaired the pattern. I re-placed the mask and all looks good. Re-taped the pattern I scored a knife line into the pattern,along the outside edge of the outer tape. In combination with a strip of Polycarbonate, which has a line scored on...

Mondrian (inspired) #3: Neoplastic 'C' progress

10-21-2011 04:25 PM by BritBoxmaker | 15 comments »

I’ve decided to make this one with wood from from my scrap bin and my ‘Ebony Bits Box’ - I won’t bore you with the details but after a lot of cutting and sticking, using Viscose CA, I had made the pattern (with a few little modifications). This was glued onto a backing of 1.5mm Birch Aeroply, using PVA, and thickness sanded to 5mm. Hand sanded down to 600 grit and a couple of coats of spray acrylic (satin finish) later this is the result. I have sto...

Wood Source: Is your wood legal?

08-26-2011 05:28 PM by BarryW | 23 comments »

I found an article today on the internet how Gibson Guitars was raided by the DOJ. I thought maybe it was illegal workers, income tax, something other than what the article was about. Illegal wood. It was a complete shock for me. If they are raiding guitar makers….and to raid Gibson you know it’s a show raid to make as much publicity as possible….then it won’t be long when woodworkers are going to have to prove where the wood they use for projects will have to b...

Attempting the.. well.. improbable

08-19-2011 06:06 AM by Ryan | 4 comments »

So, the woodworking fever has struck me. Unfortunately, it has struck me to make cases for EVERYTHING. Cigarettes, Zippos, Business cards, puzzle boxes, etc… This is my next project, once I have a bit of time. I recently destroyed (Pictures to follow) my iPod 4, 32g. I mean it bent in half. How it is still “working” is a mystery to me, but I can still access everything (as long as I remember the finger movements to find it, considering the screen is in a million piec...

Going to local shows. #34: Featured stand at Brisbane.

05-23-2011 10:48 PM by degoose | 8 comments »

Each show I attend, I make a point of featuring one stand… this year at the Timber and Working with Wood Show the stand that caught my eye ..My good friend Brian’s company, Sitco, had a great display of Solomon Island Queen Ebony including some great carvings from the Islands… Not a great set up but the timber and the carvings really stood out.. I managed to pick up some small sticks of the Ebony for use as accents in a lazy larry or two, and also as stripes in a c...

DragonFly Harp #11: Almost Finished!

05-12-2011 08:05 PM by Donna Menke | 7 comments »

Lots of vegetable gardening done in the past couple of months, and it could not wait, so the harp building project had to wait a while. Finally last week I got back into it after 6 weeks of seldom working on it. Now it is almost done- but let me go back to where I left off in March.I had these beautiful abalone mother-of-pearl wings provided to me by a fine Lumberjock. She also did a great blog about how to do inlays, and that was very helpful to me. I didn’t follow instructions exactly...
