A Few Holiday Photos #3: Buying Sawn Veneer in Paris (with saw video)

10-21-2013 07:56 PM by shipwright | 32 comments »

I recently returned from a trip to England, Belgium and France. After leaving England and the historic naval dockyards in Portsmouth and touring the battlegrounds of the first world war in Belgium to pay my respects, the next stop was Paris which was destined from the start to be the highlight of my holiday. To some Paris may be the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, or the palace at Versailles…............. They are fine and I did see them but the real attraction for me this trip was an old ...

Watercolor Dye Technique #5: Toscana, cutting and assembly

08-26-2013 12:48 AM by shipwright | 9 comments »

As this blog is supposed to be about hand dyeing and not marquetry, I’ll try to cover the cutting and assembly as quickly as I can. The method here is like Boulle style except that there is ultimately only one layer. I say ultimately because for the initial few cuts there were overlapped pieces. Due to the size of the piece it was necessary to use five pieces of maple veneer to accommodate it and in the initial cuts these were overlapped to avoid unnecessary joints in the picture. The d...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #4: Hot Sand Shading of the 2 inside panels

08-01-2013 05:56 PM by Patricelejeune | 11 comments »

It is time to do shading on those 2 first panels. The first thing I do is put the sand to heat. We have a cast iron pan on a 1500W hot plate containing about 2 inches of very fine sand. Second thing I do the shading map. When I do it home at night, while watching TV I do get a little more artistic like for the Treasure box series #1 Here I did it at work and was more practical The main action in shading is diping Depending on the species of the wood and t...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #1: Cutting Paper and preparing Marquetry Packs

07-23-2013 06:11 PM by Patricelejeune | 10 comments »

Some of new have seen our new project on other posts. We had a pretty good success with our first series, the 4 copies were sold in a year. We are going to revisit this box sold at Christie’s if my memory is good.The picture quality is not great, but we enjoyed the composition and decided to use it as a ground for our new design. The design has been finished for couple weeks now, and for the past couple days we have been working on preparing for marquetry cutting. As I ...

For the Sailors and Boat Lovers #2: Ghost Ship, (why I've been away from the shop)

07-04-2013 04:26 PM by shipwright | 27 comments »

I’ve been playing a fair amount of hooky from the shop recently and these videos will stand as my excuse. Friendship and several of her adornments are LJ projects so I guess although sailing isn’t a woodworking topic I can sneak them in as ”how the project works” videos. These were taken yesterday on beautiful Cowichan Bay BC upon whose shores I have the great good fortune to live. There was a 10 to 15 Kn breeze along with a few whitecaps and beautiful sunny skies. ...

Combining my Passions: Friendship Marquetry. #10: Update on the Four Friendship Motifs plus a Video

06-16-2013 05:41 AM by shipwright | 17 comments »

When I left off (over a month ago) to chase shiny things and re-do a couple of real boat issues, I had just finished assembling the two motifs for the desk doors on mounting boards. I had made a video to show part of the assembly but hoped to do a better job of it when I did the second set. It’s not that I thought this one was so bad as that I wanted to show the colors coming together. As it happens I didn’t get a better video so I’ll show you this one. It’s only real ...

Chevy PW2

05-30-2013 09:30 PM 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...
