Wow! My 1st birthday

01-18-2011 06:52 AM by TJ65 | 35 comments »

Wow!It has truly been one big adventure here on LJ’s. It was only because of Mike (Stefang) insistence that I joined LJ’s. And boy am I pleased that I did and he was so persistent. Initially I was mainly interested in making a box for my scrollwork to be displayed betterMy first attempt at finger joints I had done the basics back in high school but I thought all that was long gone from the old grey matter. Apparently woodworking is like riding a bike – you might be a bit rusty but yo...

08-25-2010 11:56 AM by TJ65 | 35 comments »

Ok a little while ago I posted a project that was a box that was made to look like a basket weave. It is very striking to look at if you dont know how it is made and is really easy if you have a scroll saw. A few people were interested in the making of it so here goes- First thing first get yourself a pattern, there are a few books about making basket weave boxes. Or alternately you could make your own. Once you have a pattern- You need two different patterns( look closely as these are...

Took me 3 hours to complete this stage. oh.. and only 1 scrollsaw blade!! Now THAT’s impressive

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...

10-05-2013 10:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 31 comments »

Oh – and it is actually PRETTY as well! After all, for someone like me who’s other job is an artist, it is an extra bonus to have such a fine piece of machinery color coordinate with the rest of the house. Especially since it sits in the corner of my kitchen. Ah . . . but now I am sounding lik...
