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...

Chevy in Plywood

05-18-2013 06:57 PM 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

05-07-2013 07:09 AM 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...

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

04-21-2013 01:23 AM 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...
