Corner Tables - Take 2 #1: The beginning

04-27-2011 04:09 AM by Rick | 3 comments »

So here I go – making another set of tables. This time for my mother-in-law. She never really asks for anything for herself, so when she saw these and liked them, I couldn’t help but make a set. And this will satisfy a need she’s had in her living room for over a year. So, off I go – only this time it’s really only on weekends we don’t have softball… And for those who trudged through my last set with me through the blog, I’m doing this one...

Corner Inlay Table #12: Almost there...The big reveal!

03-02-2011 04:46 PM by Rick | 2 comments »

Took a breath, gave the table tops some time, and then took the tape off. Even with some of the lessons learned regarding the mask, there were some places the stain was able to sneak under the over-laps, but some more where it didn’t. Next – I have to put the second part of the stain recipe on the larger base, and tone the smaller base a bit darker. Will probably have that same adjustment on the larger base But overall, they’re coming together. F...

Corner Inlay Table #10: Think we're ready to move on

02-17-2011 05:03 PM by Rick | 0 comments »

Back-tracked, spoke to several people, got some advice from The Woodwhisperer (Thanks, Marc!), and have a test board that looks promising. Color isn’t quite right, but you’ll get the idea… What I learned so far: Gel stains are good because the do cover so evenly Gel stains cover so evenly over waxy or de-waxed shellac – Norm’s process doesn’t work here The 1/8” masking tape does well to cover the inlay during staining, but comes up eas...

inlay

02-13-2011 09:49 PM by larryw | 9 comments »

Just wanted to respond to all the nice comments and questions about my posting “mom’s jewelry box”. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments. Technically speaking No marquetry was used in the making of the surface decoration, but actually “inlayed” into the surface of the box. A cavity was routed to fit all the pieces into. All the inlay consisted of pieces that were around 0.60 or 1/16 of an inch. All the pieces were cut by hand using a jewelers saw (looks like ...

Sandpaper Storage Cabinet #1: Sandpaper Storage Cabinet-1

02-05-2011 08:36 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at askhuck@hucksdiy.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686

Intarsia and beautiful boxes question

11-22-2010 12:44 AM by rivergirl | 10 comments »

A friend of mine builds the most incredible intarsia projects and inlaid boxes similar to the really good stuff on L/J. He also builds rather large train cars- they are inlaid and really fancy.- super high quality craftsmanship. My question is, other than ebay and perhaps etsy.com, do you builders use any other online sites to sell these types of items? My friend just lost his job and needs to try and make some money to pay household expenses. Thanks so much!

wood inlay with rock and resin #1: this is my technique

08-30-2010 11:19 PM by Andy Needles | 5 comments »

Hello. Here’s my disclaimer! Let me start by saying: wear respirator protection throughout this whole process! This is dangerous dusty work, and I claim no responsibly for what you do with this information. This is just an account of what I do. It took me awhile to figure out the inlay piece, and I’m more than willing to share what I’ve learned. Ive attached rock crushers and a pic of resin and rock on a scrap to my projects section- im just not up to speed on this HTM...

Computer Desk #2: A few pictures...

07-24-2010 11:27 PM by Scott G. | 4 comments »

Ok, it’s been awhile, but here I go with a few pictures of what I have done so far. Mind you, it’s far into the crafting of this desk, but everything will be clear I hope! First, the desk in its upside down assembly set up. It’s upside down because my wooden floor in the shop is not level, and it’s not easy to put the pocket screws into this thing by having to shim everything. Shim the workbench and be done with it! Next, the axes are put on top and measured...
