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...

Destructive Testing my Homemade Liquid Hide Glue (cold hide glue)

07-22-2014 10:48 AM by stefang | 27 comments »

I glued up these fir strips a couple of days ago for destructive testing of my homemade liquid hide glue. For those that don’t know, this glue stays in liquid form when cold and it is also used cold. It takes a lot longer than most glues to set and dry and it has to be clamped or in the case of veneers, pressed, but it can be a great option when you need a long open time and you are not in a big hurry. This product is hot hide glue with salt added. The recipe is in my last blog here. Th...

Doweled Chair Repair #1: Pair of Antique Doweled Chairs

03-30-2014 04:46 AM by DrDirt | 4 comments »

My wifes grandfather was an avid woodworker in La Canada California. He owned and founded Lincoln Lumber in Pasadena. My wife received a pair of chairs, with rotted out leather seats, and a pretty rough finish. The chairs spent the past 60 years or so in a steel Shipping container/storage unit outside Palmdale. This is the intact-ish one the other is laying in pieces sanded beside it. One of the features I really like is that he made the barley twist on the front legs run opposite d...

Hide Glue #6: Save Your Hide (Glue)

03-13-2014 05:54 PM by Patricelejeune | 7 comments »

Here is the new installment on our videos on Hide Glue. Many have asked us how they could save there Hot Hide Glue when they are not using it. Not like Old Brown Glue, Hot Hide Glue will rot in days if not cooked or frozen. It is not advised to freeze the all glue pot, so we usually dry the glue if we have to much In this case, we had taught classes for 2 weeks at the American School of French Marquetry and had 2 glue pots on the hot plates. The class finished, we were back at the works...

Combining my Passions: Friendship Marquetry. #10: Update on the Four Friendship Motifs plus a Video

06-16-2013 05:41 AM by shipwright | 17 comments »

When I left off (over a month ago) to chase shiny things and re-do a couple of real boat issues, I had just finished assembling the two motifs for the desk doors on mounting boards. I had made a video to show part of the assembly but hoped to do a better job of it when I did the second set. It’s not that I thought this one was so bad as that I wanted to show the colors coming together. As it happens I didn’t get a better video so I’ll show you this one. It’s only real ...
