Slow But Steady Progress and Learning

01-26-2013 07:51 PM by stefang | 10 comments »

ADVENTURE SUMMARYAgainst all good sense and the normal practice of creating marquetry with a wide range of different ultra thin wood veneers, I am attempting to do marquetry with thicker materials, about 3/8” thick. My reason for doing this is because right now I don’t like the idea of working with those paper thin veneers and I’m not too keen on making packets to get a lot of copies. This in no way means that I do not appreciate, respect and admire ‘proper’ marq...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #5: Pennysaver Acquisition: Delta Belt/Disc Sander & Scroll Saw

10-02-2014 10:38 PM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

This past week I picked up a couple of older power tools that look to have great promise. The first is a Delta Model 31-460 Type 2 Belt/ Disc Sander. The other a Delta Model 40-530 Scroll Saw. I spend about an hour cleaning up and adjusting the sander. It runs well, but as you can see from the photos it needs some cleaning up in areas where surface rust has formed. The miter and ledge are in fine working over. The sanding belt needs to be replaced. From the v-shaped groove in the stop, I w...

Intarsia #6: Hummingbird Day 6

08-22-2012 02:58 PM by TripleB | 1 comment »

I was able to get some of the Lilly done today. Wood’s I finally decided on are White Poplar, Red Cedar and Bubinga for the stem. I’m not sure how much time I will have to work on it today, but I should be able to get a little more done. I have another order I need to work on and get that out today, so the Hummer might take a bit of a back seat today. This is a short update, there just isn’t much more to say that the picture already does. BobTripleBScroll Saw Forum

Progress Update

01-28-2013 06:50 PM by stefang | 20 comments »

WHAT I DID TODAYI managed to get more of the black filled in. Some of the fingers, the whiskers and a few other African Blackwood infills. I also put in the middle leg with Ash. The whole project looked so grubby from glue residue and smudges that I finally cleaned it up a little. It isn’t easy because many of the infill pieces are slightly proud of the background. I have been whittling these down with sharp chisels a little everyday. My intention is to handplane it when everything i...

I have just started an Intarsia project...

02-17-2013 12:26 AM by SteveW | 6 comments »

I’ve been looking at a lot of other folks Intarsia projects here on Lumberjocks, and finally decided to bite the bullet, and try one of these myself. I am using a Judy Gale Roberts pattern, I-96, which is a mother horse and her colt, grazing in a field.I like the pattern, and hope I can give it the really nice finished look, like others have.I am at the sanding stage right now, taking each piece, and trying to round all the edges.What a sanding task! I have got to figure out a faste...

TODAYS DRAMATIC EPISODEI started out the day in the shop full of optimism. The first thing I did was to tape a of piece poster board paper to the back of my main workpiece. Then I started cutting out from the pattern, which in this case is the original dragon picture. After cutting out as many nonadjacent parts as I could, I removed the poster board pattern from the workpiece to be used as pattern to trace the cutouts on to the infill pieces. Here’s a picture after the cutouts are done...

Intarsia #5: Hummingbird Day 5

08-21-2012 03:19 PM by TripleB | 1 comment »

Unfortunately, the last week or so, it’s been very difficult for me to get into the shop to work on the hummingbird. But now I should be able to get back at it, the only set back now is when the Wenge wood I ordered gets here. I will not be able to finish the hummer with out it, but I can work around it until it arrives. The Wenge is only on the bird, so I will work on the Lilly flowers in the mean time. I was able to get the bottom leaves done and partial frame together yesterday. I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1187: Doing Something for Myself - "Reaching for the Stars" Tree Topper

12-09-2013 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As a “professional designer” and a craft person, it seems as if I am always creating things for someone else. Be it the magazine, items to sell, or gifts to others, it has been somewhat of a struggle for me to be able to justify taking some time to make some fun projects that I want to keep for myself. Especially at this time of year. But when I changed over my little “all season” tree to a Christmas theme last week, I noticed that I didn’t have any type of s...

Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #1: Lumberjocks - will I fit in?

09-28-2009 12:46 AM by Jim Bertelson | 13 comments »

Well, thanks for the great welcome. Found this forum searching for solutions to some issues as I started upgrading the shop, and thought it would be a good source of information and camaraderie. I checked out some of the threads, such as “You know you’re LumberJock if/when…”. That made me wonder…would I fit in. Am I … er, ah …. crazy enough, you know…obsessed? Then realizing that yesterday I dumped a whole quart ($15) of Watco into the bottomless pit of MDF that is my new radial arm tab...
