Quick, Cheap and Easy UV coverup for Noah's Ark

11-23-2015 12:46 PM by jfk4032 | 1 comment »

Thanks for the suggestions LJers last week for how to better protect my Noah’s Ark from UV light fading. I really didn’t want to cover up the piece with museum quality glass that had UV protection in it as I thought to best experience the piece, you not only have to look at it, but touch it as well. Also, the cost and time involved with that method didn’t work for me to have it ready this week. I went to Joann’s Fabrics with the intention of just getting a fabric ...

Originals #1: Cupcake Box

11-10-2015 12:36 AM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

So, I’m having a bit of woodworking ADD lately while trying to work on holiday gifts. I have a million things to do so of course I’m procrastinating. I decided to attempt making my own pattern and went with a simple cupcake box. I’ve seen the ones that are round and look like actual cupcakes, but I wanted mine to be a flat box with a sort of intarsia top. I drew up the pattern in Inkscape and started cutting. The box is being glued at the moment so I’ll cut it tomorrow...

Vector patterns and modifying them for double bevel cutting

04-01-2014 10:17 PM by jfk4032 | 2 comments »

It was requested on another forum for me to explain how I capture my intarsia patterns digitally, create vector artwork, then modify that artwork for accurate double bevel cutting…so here it is for my LJ friends: I’ll try to explain the techniques I’ve developed for digitizing my patterns and using that pattern to expand the artwork for accurate double bevel cutting. Keep in mind, I just started intarsia less than 2 years ago, only have 7 projects under my belt and only tried double ...

Functional Intarsia ... Well Aged!! #1: Functional Intarsia ... Well Aged!!

01-13-2014 06:08 AM by justoneofme | 25 comments »

Well! It’s about time I got my act together to greet you all, and wish each and everyone a very healthy and happy New Year. Late I know, but better late than never, eh?! I know many of you have been very productive since my last posting in May … having enjoyed viewing and commenting as often as possible. Between cabin life, Xmas projects with the grandkids, and moving my 93 year old Dad just before Xmas into his semi-assisted lifestyle (where he is very content) ... the whir...

Side project #1: Intarsia map

12-07-2013 02:36 AM by BJODay | 0 comments »

I came to a point where I was stuck on my table project. While pondering a solution to my current problem, I thought I would fill in the down time with something small. I once saw an intarsia map. It was pretty cool looking. I thought that would be fun to do. So I started making a map of Wisconsin, with each county a separate piece of wood. My original idea was to use local woods. Red oak, maple and willow in the south. White pine, red pine and birch in the north. I abandoned this plan and...

Just Another Day

07-24-2013 04:44 AM by shoutingpickel | 0 comments »

Well got that bug again after work. Looks like its gonna be a regular visitor. Well got in the shop (garage) today and decide to not give up just yet on my intarsia project. So as I’m walking in I remember an extremely uncomfortable position in which I had spent the afternoon/evening prior so unpleasantly perched in. You see not to mention was it filled with the ups and downs of a good woodworking adventure I was also doing it all squatted in the floor because I don’t have a work ...

The Misadventures of a Beginner Woodworker

07-23-2013 01:33 PM by shoutingpickel | 6 comments »

So there I was at home alone. The wife working late and the bug, the wood bug, hits and it hits hard. Chances are if you’re reading this you know what I’m talking about. The only real difference between me and you is I have little to no experience dealing with this burning excitement growing deep within me. Now I have taken some minor steps to prepare for such an itch. Things like buy a $20 off brand band saw from a friend and of course watch as many YouTube videos as I could manage. I mean h...

Fish Out of Water - Intarsia Woodworking

04-04-2013 12:25 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

Fish Out of Water – Intarsia Woodworking Most everything that I do, I do with someone in mind and/or for some reason. I very rarely make something just to make it. I found a picture a while back that I really liked of a fish jumping up out of the water to catch a dragon-fly. What drew me to this design was the way the water seemed to splash right out of the frame over a log. I had it printed and held on to it until now. My brother-in-law had a band saw that he never used and it seem...
