Treasure Box III - Post #4: Cutting Marquetry

09-29-2018 01:55 AM by Patricelejeune | 8 comments »

So with a bit of tardiness here is an “account” on cutting the marquetry panels our Treasure Box III As you know, I now do my marquetry in LA with a reduced but sweet set up. On a piece by piece project the drawing is paramount to the final quality of your marquetry. No change can be made afterwards so I usually work my drawing until Patrick and Kristen pry me away from it. Once this first stage is complete. We usualy have a good idea of what wood will be used where b...

Prairie Style Mosaics #2: Cut, Glue, Assemble, Repeat

05-27-2018 02:49 PM by EarlS | 5 comments »

Most of the previous entry talked about the process mechanics (cutting, gluing, and clamping). This is a picture of the essential tools for this part of the project: The initial blocks start out with only a few strips of wood with spacers between them and they look pretty rough. However, as the blocks are completed and glued to other blocks, the design starts to come together. Initial strips of bocote and bubinga with walnut spacers. Stacking them together and adding the ka...

Remember TB I & TB II ? Here is TB III Well. As you can see it is not quite finished yet.

We have taken this opportunity to clean up the veneer cellar with...

laying out Steve Latta's lotus flower

04-19-2017 06:59 PM by StLouisWoodworker | 2 comments »

I wrote a short note based on my experience in trying to make Steve Latta’s lotus flower as a string inlay project. In the note, I discuss one of the first steps in the project—locating 10 equally spaced points on a circle where the tips of the leaves are to be placed. The note can be read by clicking here.

Compass Deck #5: Disappointment, Movement and Change

06-20-2016 09:42 AM by Nate Meadows | 21 comments »

So I started the deck in late June, early July. I came out on the first day of October, which was a chilly day and much to my dismay, this is what I found!!! When it is hot out, and the deck is soaking up the suns heat, there is no gab what so ever! But, when its cold, every seam pulls open. These two were/are the worst. Interestingly enough, the Trek Decking shrinks next to nothing compared to the Choice decking! I was/am disappointed in the Choice Decking Brand! A 1/4 inch lo...
