Handcut Endgrain Inlay

1683 days ago 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...

Turquoise Inlay for Wood Turning #1: Turquoise Inlay for Wood Turning

1521 days ago by NightOwl | 5 comments »

My wife and I have been working with Turquoise a good bit in our wood turned works. The project titled “Blue Starburst Bowl” received some great feedback along with a couple requests for a blog on our process of inlaying with natural stone. Unfortunately we have never set out to formally document our process so we don’t have any photos of intermediate steps. Therefore, I’ll do my best to describe the steps in detail. Starting outFirst you need something to inla...

Radial Dovetail Box Construction

2139 days ago by Woodhacker | 17 comments »

Some time ago I posted a blog about a dovetail joint I came up with. I call it the radial dovetail. It incorporates handcut dovetails, but rather than using the traditional 1:8 ratio for the dovetail angle for hardwood, each side of each tail varies and is drawn from a perspective point. Then the sides of the box were contoured to blend with the dovetail design. Here’s a picture of the nearly completed box. It is made of curly maple, Carribean rosewood, and hickory.I like to think of t...

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

1458 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...

A Hepplewhite style Federal game table in six days, PIX.

2170 days ago by John Fry | 13 comments »

A while back I posted a project that I did in my shop in California with my woodworking friend Jack Hutchison from Houston, TX. Here is that post: A Krenov Inspired Cabinet on Stand in Six Days We completed that cabinet during a six day visit by Jack. Our agreement was that at some future date, I would go to Houston and we’d do another six day project in his shop. So….I arrived at Jack’s and we completed a much more complicated piece in another six day time frame and here it is………....

Router-Based Inlay

1608 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 23 comments »

Inlay is a great way to adorn your woodworking projects. Even the simplest item can become incredibly compelling if it features a well-executed inlay. With the right materials and techniques, its just like painting with wood. Only “non-artistic” folks like myself can actually do it! If you are in the N. California are, be sure to take one of David Marks' marquetry and inlay classes. And below are a few items that I recommend using for this process: 1/16 Inch Router Bi...

Compass Rose Inlay #1: Creating a Compass Rose Inlay

1723 days ago by Jon3 | 16 comments »

I decided to dress up one of the serving trays I’m making with a compass rose inlay. I used the excellent instructions of Mike Henderson. I used Walnut and figured (birdseye) Anigre veneer, and I’ll be inlaying the rose into a curly maple raised panel. I have most of the tools Mike mentioned, but I created some others, like a veneer cutting board, a cheap MDF 22.5 degree triangle. I also created a ‘veneer jointer’ out of some sandpaper and plywood. I...

Houndstooth Dovetails

2097 days ago by Woodhacker | 27 comments »

Houndstooth dovetails use varying sizes of tails (or varying sizes of pins…depending on your perspective). I’ve wanted to try them for quite a while now. This blog shows most of the process I’m currently going through. To get the effect it seems to me you need more tails/pins per corner than one would normally think about. In this case like a few of my other recent boxes posted, I’m using Caribbean rosewood and curly maple. Most often, (when you see them at all) these are done by alte...

Here is a look at the box along with the videos of the build.

Inlay Tools #1: Introduction and Radius Cutter

1877 days ago 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...
