An interesting youngster from whom one could learn

03-28-2010 08:00 PM by senselessdiver | 10 comments »

I am not a turner-although I have seen it done. This is analogous to “I am not a football player-but I watch it on the tube.” Nor am I a pen maker. I do, however, appreciate the intricacies and attention to detail involved in the pen making process.Just like the Fourth of July, many of us don’t know the amount of preparation that goes into making the pyrotechnics happen and yet we ooh and aah the evening through.What follows is something similar. Pen makers ought to espe...

Inlay Adventure

03-25-2010 02:13 PM by acanthuscarver | 12 comments »

In case there are a few Lumberjocks who don’t frequent my personal blog I thought I’d post this little video I did here so you can see it. A few weeks ago I filmed Geoffrey Noden at The Woodworking Show in Reading, PA. Unfortunately, his booth wasn’t too far from the Woodmiser booth which means you could barely hear him during the interview.Consequently, I trekked over to Trenton and caught up with Geoffrey in his shop where the noise was a bit less. I hope you enjoy the ...

Lacewood Lock #4: Finished

03-18-2010 10:54 PM by deeman | 2 comments »

Today I finished the lacewood lock. I applied 4 coats of Arm R Seal. Over all I am happy with it. This is the first time I used lacewood and I liked using it.This is also my first time trying inlay. The inlay is made of bubinga and the shackle and buttons are walnut. I hope this helps all of you that asked about my other locks.

Lacewood Lock #2: Lock Center And Inlay

03-09-2010 09:44 PM by deeman | 2 comments »

Today I worked on the front lock face. I put a inlayed piece of bubinga for the key hole trim. This was my first try,just a simple circle. After a few practice pieces I worked on the project part. Turned out pretty good I think. I got the grain off a little. I then cut out the lock body and made the spring. The spring is a piece of hickory 1/16 thick 5/8 wide and 2 7/8 long

Lacewood Lock #1: Cutting Stock

03-07-2010 11:05 PM by deeman | 0 comments »

Well today I start a new lock made from lacewood. I bought a piece of lacewood that was 6in.by 48in. at Woodcraft. I have been wanting to try this for a long time and I guess now is as good a time as any. I am hoping to use different types of wood and make different styles of locks. I hope to learn to use inlay on this lock also. I started out by cutting of one piece about 13 in long. I then re sawed it and planed it to just under 3/8 thick. Then I cut a piece 4 1/2 long and ripped all part...

Inlay borders, The making of...

You asked and i’m going to try to explain how I make my inlay strips.After many trial and error attempts I found it easier if you make a glue up jig shown here.I used prefinished plywood and made a 1” caul to aid in even clamp pressure when glueing. Next step would be to choose the types of woods to be used . I typically use a maple/ walnut mix for my diamond center as to get a good contrast of colors. I use a plywood base to act as a zero clearance throat and cut the strips 1/...

Handcut Endgrain Inlay

01-18-2010 06:32 AM 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...

01-10-2010 01:23 AM by Karson | 19 comments »

I just got back from the Baltimore (Timonium) Wood Show, and as I was walking down the last aisle after visiting with LJ member Chuck Bender. I noticed this gentleman sitting on a stool doing some strange things with wood. His name is Geoffrey Noden. Geoffrey in the man that has his name on the Noden AdjustABench It was in his booth that his wife was looking after the Adjust a bench and he was sitting at a stool in front of this tool. What this tool does is cut patterns in wood are then...

The Straightedge (video) #2: Router Inlay Basics

12-23-2009 10:07 PM by Brian Havens | 13 comments »

Here it is. My next video… finally! I feel like I got over a lot of learning curves on this one. I found this a particularly challenging subject to present because router inlay can get involved and there are often several ways to go about the different steps. Trying to cram all that into a video, however, is more likely to discourage folks from trying router inlay. My goal in this video was to present the essential knowledge and skills that one can start building on, thereby remo...

Compass Rose Inlay #2: Inlay the Compass Rose

12-15-2009 09:25 PM by Jon3 | 13 comments »

I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to take this part slowly. There are no shortcuts that leave you with a great inlay! Most commercial veneer is thin, 1/42nd or so. So you don’t have a lot of room to work with, once you’ve inlaid the compass rose. That means you need to make sure your inlay surface is ready to go. I used this maple panel with a little bit of curl to it. This has been pre-sanded to 320. You start by solidly taping down the inlay in i...
