I missed blogging yesterday because on Wednesday afternoon I received a call from the guys that are working on my car in Halifax. They were DONE with it and it was finally ready to be picked up. After just over two months of waiting, you can bet I dropped everything and we planned to make the three hour trip to the city to go get it. I was really excited. After the long and cold winter, followed by three months of not being able to drive my car, I really was looking forward to...
View on YouTube This week I continued to focus on the back of the chair. I spent time finessing the crestrails shape. After that, I focused on the center back slat. Milled up ebony bars and inlayed them into the center back slat.

As an artist and a designer, I am always looking for good source material for my creations. I am not the kind of artist that usually can just draw from the top of my head. Oh, sure – I can draw cartoon-y type things or non-realistic items fairly well and you can tell what they are supposed to be, but for my higher end artwork and paintings, I like to have photographs as a reference. This isn't always easy. I am always very aware and respectful of copyrights from fellow artists ...
Hello, I had to stop working on the boxes for 2 weeks as we had classes here at the American School of French Marquetry. Great group But I am back to work on them now.

The edges of the top are veneered with ebony first Then I cut with a veneer saw the inside marquetry to size and instal the banding The same is done for the sides It is...
Time always seems to move much too quickly, and lately more so than ever. I think because I have been keeping so busy the days just seem to bleed quickly into one another and before we know it, another week has passed. It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the year. As those of you who read often know, I spent the last week or so working on some new scroll saw patterns for the site. At the time I was working on them it didn't seem like it was a lot, but seeing everything ...
I didnt bother posting this in my project list because its mostly metal but i figured people might like to see it anyways. This is made from some reclaimed purple heart chunks I bought from the salvage shop for $5 each. If I could afford it I’d have bought their entire stock. They were pretty rough to start with but they turned out decent in the end. Anyways here’s pictures.
Getting my tools ready #22: ROUGH CUT STRAIGHTEDGE CUTTING JIG WITH KNOBS II (THE NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION!)
ROUGH CUT STRAIGHTEDGE CUTTING JIG WITH KNOBS II (THE NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION!) This is the bottom of the straightedge cutting jig. It is made from the material available on the shop, half-inch plywood. You can see the hardwood rail for tracking the jig. It is smaller than the last one because that’s all I had. LOL! This board is wider than the last to accommodate wider slabs of wood. The original version was not able to handle more than 8 inches in width. The wider hol...
If I am anything, I am patient. I wasn't always that way, but as I get older and learn to appreciate things a bit more, I know that doing things right and getting things done properly takes time. Most times there is no way around that. We live in a society where everyone wants everything fast. Whether it be their food, something they ordered online, or even something that is hand crafted, people don't seem to have the patience and respect that is required to offer something ...
I may or may not do much in-depth coverage of this build…I don’t have a lot of pictures for it. But I wanted to share this little bit of advice that I wish I had found when I needed it. I had a piece of old Lexan left to me by the previous owner of my house. It’s almost perfectly sized to become the walls of a Thien tophat seperator, and it’s 3/8” thick. BUT it’s been sitting in the garage for who knows how long, and the backing paper on both sides ha...
