When I started woodworking I have three aims. achieve make beautiful boxes in wood and with mechanisms.This is because when I was a kid I loved them.My grandma had a box that my uncle made, and I never tired of playing with it. Now, my grandma and uncle had passed away, this box belongs to one of my cousins (I have 42) This is the box that started it all You can notice that this is a two parts box. The upper side has a mechanism to open the lid (that will be another entry of this blog),...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #4: Hot Sand Shading of the 2 inside panels

08-01-2013 05:56 PM by Patricelejeune | 11 comments »

It is time to do shading on those 2 first panels. The first thing I do is put the sand to heat. We have a cast iron pan on a 1500W hot plate containing about 2 inches of very fine sand. Second thing I do the shading map. When I do it home at night, while watching TV I do get a little more artistic like for the Treasure box series #1 Here I did it at work and was more practical The main action in shading is diping Depending on the species of the wood and t...

Soccer Coffee Table #1: Progress on the Soccer Coffee Table

07-04-2013 09:34 PM by AaronMad | 0 comments »

I am well into my project now, as you can see I have made the table top and had the legs professionally turned and now I am ready to construct the table and finish it. The lines of the soccer field were done by using a 10mm straight cut router bit and moving along a fence for a straight cut, 10mm deep. Then strips of jarrah were cut 10mm wide and 13mm thick to insert into the grooves. All worked out perfectly! Now I plan to make a wooden soccer ball (truncated icosahedron) to displ...

Chevy PW2

05-30-2013 09:30 PM by apprentice | 19 comments »

I’m not sure how this is going to work out online, here is the second Chevy in my plywood line up, in a much simpler layout, but just as reliable and very strong. Birch Plywood is an ideal medium to use for this kind of project due to its multi layered higher density form, but you could use good quality exterior ply which is slightly cheaper if the former is unavailable. First pictures straight out of CAD gives a view of the basic outline of what are basically a pair of si...

05-09-2013 11:25 PM 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 ...

Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga #11: Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga

05-07-2013 07:09 AM by justoneofme | 16 comments »

Gosh Darn Everyone … that was pretty mean of me to leave you all in suspense like that!! But pressing the main Art Nouveau design onto the front of the wine box turned out absolutely fine … and better yet … I found those missing photos relating to the other 3 panels!! BUT ... before I get farther into this blog I’m wondering if anyone out there has had a window jump up in front of them while on this particular site stating: ”Warning … Visiting this site...

From log to box in less than a month #2: Making Progress

04-30-2013 02:37 PM by sras | 10 comments »

I worked late enough last night I didn’t get to updating the blog until this morning. There were a couple pictures still on the camera for the prior day’s work. I got the template done and located it on the lid. After a few passes with the router, I had a recess. The lid is only 5/16 thick to start with and the recess is 3/16 deep. I trimmed the ironwood to size and rounded the corners. Then I applied glue and clamped them up for the night. The last thing I...

Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays #2: First Cuts for RoseBud

04-30-2013 05:30 AM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

Started to build the RoseBud inlay that will go on the lid of the Bubinga and Purple Heart jewelry box. For this inlay I am using maple, yellow heart, rosewood, and kauri. Tomorrow I am going to do some sand shading to give the inlay a 3D effect. Should be pretty cool… P.S. The only down side to sand shading is the wood can sometimes stink and yellow heart is one of the worst!!! It is almost as bad as zebra wood… not quite but almost!!! Now that I’m finished with...

Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays #1: Adding the FishFry EZInlay to a box

04-29-2013 06:15 PM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

I am in the process of building five different jewelry boxes as showcase pieces for a business I am trying to launch. All of the boxes are mirror images of each other except I used different types of wood on each one. This picture shows how the boxes looked a few days ago. Notice the one in the back with the TurtleSoup inlay??? Each box is getting its own decorative inlay built on it because that is what EZInlays.com sells, kits that will allow the average (and trust me on this my sk...
