Inlay Tools #5: Thicknessing Gauge

07-13-2009 04:30 PM by Jon3 | 3 comments »

Once again, I went for some more of that curly spalted maple offcut. I spent some time seeing if I could figure out how to make my own tooling from a spare card scraper, my my first attemps to cut down hardened stock were a pretty big failure. I picked up the L-N cutters, since they’re only $15 and appropriately sized already, and went to town. This is by far the simplest tool in the batch. Really, its just a block of wood with 2 cuts, 2 rabbets, and 4 screws. I didn’t thin...

Inlay Tools #4: Slicing Gauge

07-13-2009 04:22 PM by Jon3 | 2 comments »

With my straight line cutter complete, I moved on to the slicing gauge. This tool, along with a slicing board (which is really just a board with a lip to hold the inlay material up against) allows you to cut (a ripping action) long thin strips from your inlay sheet stock. This is the first part of making the inlay material itself. Here is my ‘raw materials’ shot. I went with a curly spalted maple body, and a Sipo cutter support bar left over from the previous tool’s offcuts....

Inlay Tools #2: Radius Cutter complete

07-08-2009 03:52 PM by Jon3 | 7 comments »

Cut off and mounted, the brass point actually looks kind of nice. I’ll just be a little less generous with the epoxy next time, so I don’t end up with that overfill bead. I mounted the radius cutter, going about 1/16th to 1/8th deeper than the brass pivot point, so that the cutter will remain as perpendicular to the work as possible. Since the holes in the cutter to attach it to the tool are oval, there is some room for adjustment later on. It isn’t perfect, ...

Inlay Tools #1: Introduction and Radius Cutter

07-07-2009 09:59 PM by Jon3 | 1 comment »

I was very intruiged by Steve Latta’s DVD for Lie-Nielsen “Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry” and the associated line of inlay tools that they offer along with it. I learned (by way of the Villiage Carpenter) that Steve has been touching a longer course on inlay for quite some time, and used to advocate the manufacture of your own tools, in the style that Lie-Nielsen is now offering. When looking at those offerings, I did think that several of them could...

Possible Inlay Project - Suggestions??

06-19-2009 02:21 AM by Derrek LeRouax | 3 comments »

So, I am in the process of a myriad of “home” projects (shelves in kids rooms, re-finishing painted furniture, attic shelves, etc…), and have been spending my free time trying to figure out my next project. I am big on “form follows function”, so I want any project I endevor on to serve a purpose. I also want to continue my journey in woodworking, so I want to try something I have never done before, hence INLAYS. I have seen some great projects with even bette...

LSD Workbench #1: LSD Hickory Bench

06-12-2009 04:10 AM by Red Rocks School of Fine Woodworking | 2 comments »

This workbench has had an interesting history. The Hickory was donated by National Lumber Supply. This Hickory makes up the majority of the top. The trestle (base) is constructed in Ash. The height was set for shorter students, actually using a student in one of the fundamentals classes as a model for the bench height. The height is around 30” – so considerably shorter than our normal benches. The bench trestle got it’s start as a demo for the Fall 09 workbench class. The joi...

Unknown Wood / Unknown Project #1: What am I going to be?

06-03-2009 08:23 AM by scrappy | 3 comments »

Here is a piece of wood I received from Rastus I am trying to decide what it is going to become. Does anyone have any suggestions? Pieces are about 4 inches long and 3 wide at the widest. Re-Sawed to 1/8 inch thick for inlay. Here are the pics I took of it before and after I sliced it for inlay. Is it going to be Hearts? or maybe Angel Wings? Or could it end up as a Butterfly? Here is what it looks like with a litle Mineral Spirits wiped on it. I just love this w...
