How to Build a Chevalet From Scratch #1: How hard can it be?

03-05-2011 06:18 AM by shipwright | 23 comments »

Update: See also Chevy II, The Canadian Cousin. I first saw a chevalet in Sorrento, Italy about ten or eleven years ago. I was very impressed with the machine and the work being done by the master marqueters there but never dreamed that I would ever find myself building one. Well, retirement has it’s ways of taking you places you never thought you’d be going. After a working lifetime of more or less “creative woodworking” who knew I’d be this interested in per...

Marquetry Cutting Styles #1: Double Bevel or Conical Style

06-11-2011 01:51 AM by shipwright | 17 comments »

When I posted the clipper ship marquetry for my Canadian chevalet, there was some confusion about the different styles of cutting marquetry and the terminology conected thereto. I will try here, using examples from some of my work, to clear up the confusion. First of all, let me say that these are all methods for sawing marquetry. Knife methods are not something I have much experience with and while they have similarities I won’t include knife cutting here. Double Bevel Marquetry ...

Marquetry Demo #1: Marquetry Tutorial - VERY rough

03-11-2009 04:52 AM by TheCaver | 16 comments »

Let me make a disclaimer here. Some people requested a procedural series on this and I threw this together in 17 minutes! There are mistakes and this thing is ROUGH at best, but it will give you an idea on how to get started…Think of it as an outline, not an exhaustive tutorial…..Off we go…. You’ll need these items….Veneer, a craft knife with a new xacto blade (don’t use cheap off brands, the good ones are less frustrating and they don’t cost that ...

Watercolor Dye Technique #1: General Concept

01-30-2011 03:52 AM by shipwright | 6 comments »

This is the blog that I promised detailing my experiments in what I call “watercolor style” aniline dying. My sincere hope is that it will encourage some of you to jump in and help develop what I think is a huge potential of which I’ve only scratched the surface. The idea of hand dyeing pieces of inlay or marquetry came to me because I was frustrated by the limited array of colors available to me in the veneer and solid wood supply to which I have access. I was enjoying ...

72 note Movement, Music Box #3: "Marquetry", for the Top.

04-22-2011 03:11 AM by Dennis Zongker | 34 comments »

I just finished the practice piece for the top of the music box. The method of marquetry I use is one that I have developed over the years. I used some of the techniques like the boulle technique and the packet method and combined them into what I call, ” the ten step method.” The veneer packet consisted of 8 different veneers and there were a total of 138 individual pieces. I used hot silicon sand for shading certain pieces of the veneers it gives the marquetry a 3D appearan...

you asked..........RING TUTORIAL

06-20-2009 07:11 PM by kolwdwrkr | 9 comments »

I wanted to start off with a big THANK YOU to everyone who commented on my jewelry, and to those interested in the process. It’s appreciated. I had a few inquiries to make a blog on how I made the ring, so I decided to accomodate. After all, isn’t this what this site is for. I want to make something clear first. I’m in no way an experienced turner. My experience on the lathe is pretty minimal, so take my methods of turning with a grain of salt. I think the main focus...

Marquetry Cutting Styles #3: Classic Style

06-12-2011 04:39 PM by shipwright | 16 comments »

The Classic Style is the most difficult of the saw cut styles to master. It involves cutting each piece separately, from packets of veneer, each composed of only one color or species. It’s considerable advantage is that it can produce as many identical motifs as the number of layers in your packets. This can reduce the labor and increase the speed of production of pieces with repetitive motifs or enable the production of several identical pieces. The first step as in other styles is ...

and then it becomes....... #6: marquetry conquest

12-05-2008 05:19 AM by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

Well it has been a while since my last posting on this project. As promised I will show my way of doing marquetry and carvings. Remember that these are my techniques, and yours may vary. There are a ton of ways of doing things and I’m sure there’s a lot of ways easier then mine. For instance many of you may prefer to use a router to route out a majority of the material, then use chisels to cut to the line. I use chisels simply because I do the work on my dining room table. I...

Marquetry Cutting Styles #2: Boulle Style

06-11-2011 07:48 PM by shipwright | 16 comments »

This style is named for one of the great masters, Andre-Charles Boulle (1642-1732) and it differs from double bevel style in several ways. In both Boulle style and Classic style, which I’ll cover next, it is imperative that the blade is at exactly 90 degrees to the work, both vertically and horizontally.Also in both these styles cutting is done in a “packet” of veneers rather than piece by piece as is done in double bevel. This results in several pieces of identical shape on...
