Combining my Passions: Friendship Marquetry. #1: Upgrading my Desk Doors

463 days ago by shipwright | 30 comments »

Back in 2009 when my “woodworking as a hobby” life was just getting started I became interested in veneering and marquetry. Problem was I knew nothing about marquetry so I used a set of router bushings made for inlaying and adapted a style of marquetry cutting with them. One of my early projects was a couple of doors for a new desk to fit a little nook in my home office. The text accompanying the project post says ” I will improve” so I guess the time has co...

Watch Box #6: Handle replaced, shaping started

929 days ago by Andy | 27 comments »

The handle.I did not like how the handle was looking, it appeared to lack any of the swirling grain that the top inset panel has. That happens sometimes after shaping, the good stuff ends up on the floor. Also… if you look close, you will notice in the picture below that I sanded too deep into the right corner of the handle and exposed the spline! Oops! So I made a new one from Black Palm Wood, a first time for me. The black color ties in with the Wenge corner splines, plus I love ...

Houndstooth Dovetails

2065 days ago by Woodhacker | 27 comments »

Houndstooth dovetails use varying sizes of tails (or varying sizes of pins…depending on your perspective). I’ve wanted to try them for quite a while now. This blog shows most of the process I’m currently going through. To get the effect it seems to me you need more tails/pins per corner than one would normally think about. In this case like a few of my other recent boxes posted, I’m using Caribbean rosewood and curly maple. Most often, (when you see them at all) these are done by alte...

SoZo Coffee Shop Table Top Series #1: Coffee Shop Table Top Project

928 days ago by Doug McPherson | 26 comments »

Some friends of mine run a local Coffee Roasting and Espresso Bar here in my area (Michigan), and they contacted me about building six new table tops for their coffee shop. For the design, we decided to inlay their company logo in each table. I’m using Maple, Walnut and Cherry. I decided to start with making the star. To save some work, I made just two variations, but made them thick enough so that after the glue up, I could slice them in to multiple st...

Router-Based Inlay

1577 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 23 comments »

Inlay is a great way to adorn your woodworking projects. Even the simplest item can become incredibly compelling if it features a well-executed inlay. With the right materials and techniques, its just like painting with wood. Only “non-artistic” folks like myself can actually do it! If you are in the N. California are, be sure to take one of David Marks' marquetry and inlay classes. And below are a few items that I recommend using for this process: 1/16 Inch Router Bi...

Handcut Endgrain Inlay

1652 days ago by SPalm | 22 comments »

This is so stolen from Geoffrey Noden of the AdjustABench. He demo’ed this at the Wood Show and Karson blogged about it. I thought it was pretty cool, and since it is not on the market yet, I thought I would make my own. Not sure what I was doing, I made what looks like a paper cutter. The arm rides between two longer sides to keep it stable and square. It is about two feet long. The cutter bar is hinged with a bolt so that it is level when it is 3/4 of an inch above the base. This let...

Making a simple inlay

2260 days ago by GaryK | 21 comments »

Here’s the technique I used to make the inlay in the TV Stand that I recently posted..First you need to make a little jig like you would for finger/box joints...Then make a cut and then move the cut you just made over the piece of wood on your jig. ..Then flip it over, center it between two cuts and do it again..Then you glue in small pieces of wood into the cuts and then bandsaw cut off the inlays...Here you can see two different inlay woods. It all depends on the effect you are goi...

444 days ago by justoneofme | 20 comments »

Well at long last I greet you all with the last blog on this Marquetry Wine Box Saga!! Keeping my 93 year old father company (these past two day) while he recovers from a nasty lung infection, has given me ample opportunity to catch up on computer stuff. And now I can devote a few relaxing hours to the composition of this final blog! Hummmmm … you’re right Mike ... Nouveau Gal does look a bit ‘sly’!! And yes … I promise to get some better pics of her ...

Progress Update on the Custom Steak Knife Commission Project

2433 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 19 comments »

Hey folks, the Wife is in town getting a piece of glass for the top of my knife display box, and so I snuck in from the shop to post an update on the progress for my custom steak knife project. This is the first set of 18 knives. I haven’t started the second set of 12 knives, so it will be a another long couple of weeks to get them finished. This first set of 18 needed to be in Las Vegas for a party this coming Saturday night, so that was a hard push to get them finished in time. Th...
