Chevy PW2

424 days ago by apprentice | 19 comments »

I’m not sure how this is going to work out online, here is the second Chevy in my plywood line up, in a much simpler layout, but just as reliable and very strong. Birch Plywood is an ideal medium to use for this kind of project due to its multi layered higher density form, but you could use good quality exterior ply which is slightly cheaper if the former is unavailable. First pictures straight out of CAD gives a view of the basic outline of what are basically a pair of si...

Chevy in Plywood

436 days ago by apprentice | 44 comments »

After a play in 3D CAD here is my prototype Chevy in the making. She consists of a single sheet of grade C birch plywood 18.00mm for the main body, trans arms and internal levers, seat etc, and there is still a couple of square feet left over after all the parts were cut out. So far the cost of materials comes to just under a hundred pounds for 99% of the materials, the plywood was £40.00 inclusive of tax. All the main sections were cut out acurately for me at the supplier at no extra ...

Well at long last I greet you all with the last blog on this Marquetry Wine Box Saga!! Keeping my 93 year old father company (these past two day) while he recovers from a nasty lung infection, has given me ample opportunity to catch up on computer stuff. And now I can devote a few relaxing hours to the composition of this final blog! Hummmmm … you’re right Mike ... Nouveau Gal does look a bit ‘sly’!! And yes … I promise to get some better pics of her ...

Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga #11: Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga

448 days ago by justoneofme | 16 comments »

Gosh Darn Everyone … that was pretty mean of me to leave you all in suspense like that!! But pressing the main Art Nouveau design onto the front of the wine box turned out absolutely fine … and better yet … I found those missing photos relating to the other 3 panels!! BUT ... before I get farther into this blog I’m wondering if anyone out there has had a window jump up in front of them while on this particular site stating: ”Warning … Visiting this site...

457 days ago by justoneofme | 17 comments »

Hi Everyone! It’s been a wonderful time filled with family, visitations, luncheons and dinners … all in celebration of my Dad’s 93rd Birthday!! But now our company has gone back home … the dust has settled … and I’ve finally returned to some serious time in the workshop. Finishing off Nouveau Gal’s hair means this main front panel for my wine box is complete! At the same time Nouveau Lady got her hairdo done too … so I could work o...

Holy Moly but time is flying by!! There are slips of paper all around my kitchen desk (where I’m blogging to you all on my laptop at this very moment!) ... messages reminding me to do this … do that … don’t forget … appointments to keep … plans to make … phone calls. Yikes!! I don’t know about you folks, but when I see this kind of mess pile up I just head straight to the workshop :) Today I couldn’t avoid it any longer … the mes...

Combining my Passions: Friendship Marquetry. #1: Upgrading my Desk Doors

464 days ago by shipwright | 30 comments »

Back in 2009 when my “woodworking as a hobby” life was just getting started I became interested in veneering and marquetry. Problem was I knew nothing about marquetry so I used a set of router bushings made for inlaying and adapted a style of marquetry cutting with them. One of my early projects was a couple of doors for a new desk to fit a little nook in my home office. The text accompanying the project post says ” I will improve” so I guess the time has co...

474 days ago by Patricelejeune | 9 comments »

Couple years ago Patrick Edwards from Antique Refinishers and the American School of French Marquetry whom I work with, was featured in 2 videos published by Graham Blackburn and bought by Popular woodworking. They have been kind enough to grant us access to those 2 videos. Here is what Patrick posted on his blog: Graham Blackburn VideosI remember when MTV first appeared and for the first time we could watch music videos on our TV. Then YouTube was developed and we could watch videos o...

Playing with Parchment

476 days ago by shipwright | 23 comments »

A few months ago my buddy Gene (vipond33) posted a superb desk featuring parchment and ebony. He had some parchment scraps left over and he sent them on to me, thinking I might be able to use them for something. .... Thanks Gene! He gave me some general instructions for it’s use and left me to experiment. The thing that caught my interest was that he mentioned that it’s good to pay attention to the darkness or lightness of the substrate as it can be somewhat transparent. I imme...

Marquetry tools, veneers and supply purchases

495 days ago by stefang | 22 comments »

I thought it might be interesting for those thinking about taking up marquetry work to get an idea of what they might need and I wanted to show my marquetry advisory board what I bought in case they see something missing that I should have. Besides marquetry, It’s my intention to begin using hot hide glue, so those supplies and tools are also included. HIDE GLUE/HAMMER VENEERINGI do like the specialty electric glue pots, but I didn’t fancy paying the high price plus import duti...
