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

1260 days ago 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...

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

1272 days ago 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—

Intarsia and beautiful boxes question

1348 days ago 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, 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

1431 days ago 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...

1468 days ago 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...

Wisconsin Running W Inlay #1: Making the template

1479 days ago by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

Note: All of the pictures are clickable that will load a larger file for easier viewing. A fellow engineer and friend at work wants me to make him a lid for his 20 gallon pickle crock. The plan is to make the top out of walnut sense I have a few bf laying around. :D Then from there, I got the idea of maybe trying my hand at some inlay work. It’s a nice big area and with the dark wood of the walnut I figured it would make an excellent contrasting wood. So I ran the idea of doin...

Inlaid Fused Glass #1: The basics of fusing glass

1479 days ago by DesertWoodGuy | 2 comments »

For those of you interested in fusing glass, I’ve given a short explanation about the process. Although working in kiln fired Warm glass (as opposed to Hot glass worked in a furnace), is secondary to my woodworking, it does provide another creative outlet. Here is some info for those that are interested in learning more about fused glass. Fused glass is melted in a glass kiln, which differs from a ceramic kiln in that glass kilns are digital and programmable because the glass must be...

Luthiery Fun #2: Rosette

1485 days ago by Chinitorama | 3 comments »

The top was glued up as any other panel would be, only thinner at about 3mm. The material was a lucky find at a local lumberyard. Nicely quartered cedar is easy to find here in BC. Unless noted otherwise, Titebond 3 is the glue used. Rosettes in classical/flamenco guitars are most often mosaic and herringbone inlay. I love the look of traditional rosettes, but they are complex to make from scratch. Mass-produced rosettes can be purchased from most of the big luthier supply houses. As...
