OK, The French Veneer (at last) #15: Top Sand Shading and Assembly

02-15-2015 05:40 AM by shipwright | 39 comments »

Warning: Lots of photos! Here’s my setup for sand shading one piece at a time. The marquetry has been preliminarily assembled on sticky shelf paper, a sheet of thin acrylic covers most of it, and the sand is hot. I remove one piece, shade it in a spoon of hot sand, and return it. Then I repeat a thousand times (give or take). I am still developing this way of doing things but it is working very well and I have complete control of how the picture grows as I am shading. H...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #17: Getting ready to polish the inside of the box

01-22-2015 11:30 PM by Patricelejeune | 13 comments »

All right! Last time I was done with the marquetry and I had done the mastic on them. I glued them down with Hide Glue and cleaned with called water the paper that hold the pieces from the front with Hot Hide Glue. When all the paper is gone with just cold water, I use one of those green scrubs to clean of the rest of the glue. As there is never a project without at least one f**k up, one of my marquetry panel did slide during veneering. Fortunately, the use of...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #16: Finished with the marquetry panels

01-05-2015 09:05 PM by Patricelejeune | 7 comments »

With those and of year year festivities, I still have been able to advance a bit this project, between making macarons with my wife for the end of the year gifts for our friends And also, after a snow fall due to a cold front coming from Canada, a little bit of playing in the snow in the mountains with my wife, like any San Diegan. I finished to put together the marquetry panels. The bone where finally dyed I inserted those last pieces in the top and sides ...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #8: Tuning the Cantilevered Drawers

12-01-2014 12:42 AM by shipwright | 21 comments »

Now that I have the plan in place for the end marquetry there is a little housekeeping to be done with the drawers. The pull out ones in the centre column are straightforward and relatively easy so I have already glued the marquetry to them. The tricky ones are the cantilevered drawers in the side columns.When last seen they looked like this. They were glued up but had no bottoms. The bottoms will be 1/4” plywood veneered both sides with walnut and ebonized. Because the plywood c...

Trio of veneered boxes #2: More veneer work in the Kitchen

11-11-2014 06:45 AM by jmartel | 8 comments »

Well, the bike is still down. Managed to fix my starting issue, but now it doesn’t hold idle. It’s always something. With modern diagnostics, I can check/change fueling and many other parameters with a laptop. The laptop was out to upload a new map, but unfortunately it isn’t going to help my idle issue. That’s more of a mechanical problem I believe. Unfortunately for these projects, that means that I still can’t do any work in the garage. That means I nee...

Trio of veneered boxes #1: Intro, wood selection, and starting the cutting

11-09-2014 07:16 PM by jmartel | 6 comments »

Unlike my previous blog posts, I intend to actually finish this series. Apologies to anyone who was left hanging until the project was posted on previous ones. Here goes nothing… These projects will be a bit more complicated than previous work that I’ve done. Additionally, these will be my first experience into working with Hot Hide Glue. I was able to pick up a Hold Heet glue pot and some hide glue from someone used for only $35. The first box that I will be making is going...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #14: Cutting bone

10-23-2014 01:52 AM by Patricelejeune | 27 comments »

For those who follow this thread, you know we have been struggling on dying bone. We may have found the solution, at least one of them. Here is a test piece that seems to be dyed all the way through To help the dye to penetrate all the way through the bone I decided to dye the pieces already cut. I had my papers already prepared from the start waiting for the solution The intended green bone pieces were highlighted in green (of course) on the drawing. I cut ...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #2: Beginnings

10-02-2014 01:07 AM by shipwright | 16 comments »

I put a lot of thought into what the first project would be for my fine sawn veneer before I decided on this particular idea. I would have to say there was also a lot of “putting it off” involved but once the project had been chosen the next question was where to start. I wanted the piece to have interest in both decoration and in function (hence the cantilevered drawers) so before anything else I had to make sure the mechanics were sound. Here are a few shots of the hinge comp...
