Small Secretary With Tambour Door #5: Architectural Details and Inlaid Top

01-25-2015 05:49 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

First I work on making the “pillars” for the architectural details in the front of the hutch. Then I carve the “foundations” for the pillars with a chisel. I cut the top to size, and using the router table, I form the decorative edge. Again, I use a router to cut the groove for the inlay, glue the inlay in, flush them to the surface as with the drawers and attach the top. I also show how I fix a pretty big mistake when I was cutting the inlay. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #4: Figured Drawer Fronts With Inlay

01-17-2015 05:25 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

In this video, I start by selecting some beautiful figured crotch walnut for the drawer fronts. I resaw the board and then bookmatch the pieces so the “flame” of the figure radiates out from the center of the drawers. I also spend some time cutting and installing inlay in the drawer fronts, build the 6 drawers and then fit them to the openings. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! http://youtu.be/qRlSB-sJtyo

Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #3: Prepping the top

01-05-2015 04:02 PM by Marshall | 2 comments »

Well after many hours in my cold shop and a couple of trips to my neighbor’s cabinet shop, the table top is ready for finishing. I have to thank my neighbor, who owns a home remodeling company, for offering me the use of his cabinet shop. It saved me probably two full days of flattening the top First, I glued up the top and then took it back to the cabinet shop to flatten and sand down to 150 on their massive 54” wide-belt sander. They also cut it to length for me on their A...

Designing a Christmas Wreath #4: Changed My Mind

12-12-2014 11:55 PM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

I changed my mind about the Christmas Wreath I was building for the Festival of Trees. Even though I built three sets of ornaments for a wreath I decided to skip the wreath due to financial issues. That doesn’t mean I didn’t still build and donate something to the event because I did! I just changed my donation from a wreath to a Christmas Decor item. Actually it was a pretty fun project as I first had to make tweaks to the Santa Hat. I like how the hat turned out mysel...

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...

Complex Curve Veneered Box Series #3: Making the Inlay Lines

12-08-2014 11:32 PM by Matt Nudi | 3 comments »

So today was pretty fun. It ended up being a successful day at the shop making the inlay lines I was going to use. So for starters, I glued up using my vacuum press 4 sets of veneer sheets. The first 3 were black/white/black, and the last one was white/white/brown/white. The first is going to serve as the main inlay lines for the outside of the box, and the second will serve as the inlay lines for the inside of the lid and box opening. So here are all the sheets I was going to be cutting up. ...

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...

Designing a Christmas Wreath #3: Selecting Colors for the AmbersBear Inlay

11-19-2014 11:32 PM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

I chose the types of wood I’m going to use to build the AmbersBear inlay I’m putting on the Festival of Trees wreath hanger. This slice of burled maple I found will make an awesome hanger and provide the perfect place to highlight an AmbersBear inlay. I’ve already built the Yellow Heart / Bacote and the glitter filled Purple Heart ornaments for the wreath so I laid them out with the hanger to see what it all looked like. Placing all the various colors together helps...

Designing a Christmas Wreath #1: Initial Design

11-14-2014 09:20 PM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

This is a picture of the wreath I built last year for the Boise Festival of Trees. Not bad for a first attempt at building a wreath, or in other words I thought it turned out pretty cool… Yeah… that’s my Daughter, she turned out pretty cool too!!! :) For the wreath being built this year I’m using EZInlays AmbersBear as the main focal point of the wreath hanger. Because it’s Christmas I decided to put a Santa Hat on the inlay too. I found this AWESOME piece...

Trio of veneered boxes #2: More veneer work in the Kitchen

11-11-2014 06:45 AM by jmartel | 8 comments »

Well, the bike is still down. Managed to fix my starting issue, but now it doesn’t hold idle. It’s always something. With modern diagnostics, I can check/change fueling and many other parameters with a laptop. The laptop was out to upload a new map, but unfortunately it isn’t going to help my idle issue. That’s more of a mechanical problem I believe. Unfortunately for these projects, that means that I still can’t do any work in the garage. That means I nee...
