Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #3: 2nd Marquetry Panel Cut

07-31-2013 12:55 AM by Patricelejeune | 4 comments »

I just finished cutting the second inside panel for this treasure box series #2. This is for the inside of the lid. Some of the pieces are a bit small, I have a tendency to go to far… It is cut on the marquetry chevalet. The piece by piece process require to be precise The pieces are laid out in éclaté according to their final position I really like those detail pictures The 2 panels are done cutting, ready for shading in hot sand ...

Lighting Pendants #1: Truncated Icosahedron challenge.

06-24-2014 06:37 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 18 comments »

Howdy, I’m making two chandeliers for the living room. I don’t know why I thought it might be a good idea to hang soccer balls from the ceiling. I just got it in my head that they would look good up there. Now I’m all in. The top half of the chandeliers will be solid wood while the bottom halves will be made from the wooden cages. Since I’m posting this from my I-phone, the pictures might turn out sideways or upside down. ;) This is two top halves resting o...

Upholstering 2 Chairs For My Living Room #5: A little body stitching.

01-26-2014 02:19 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

There is very little on these chairs that I need to sew on the body. Still, a little might be just enough of an example for some of you. The front of the chair and deck need a bit of sewing. Take a look at this rounded front edge and the old stiches. There are several ways to skin this cat. One is to take off the fabric, undo the stitches then trace the cutouts onto you new fabric. I have to do that sometimes. Let’s get a little adventurous. Since I have a pattern with a center...

Briefcase #2: Cutting, sanding, finishing and glueing

08-04-2009 09:38 PM by Chris Wright | 2 comments »

So, now I’ve got the bulk of the work done on the case. Where I left off in my last blog I had cut the sides and glued the top together. Now, I got the top down to the right size. This was a little tricky because I wanted to keep the joint pretty much right in the middle of the panel. Once it was to size it was time to route a cove along the edges so I could fit them into the slots I cut into the sides. I used a cove cutting bit that I filed the guide bearing post off of so I wil...

Woodworking with Abrasives - Provocative Teaser Article by Andrew Crawford in British Woodworking

06-17-2011 08:54 PM by Steven Davis | 3 comments »

I found out about Andrew Crawford via an article somewhere here at Lumerjocks. For those who don’t know, he is a master box maker. I joined his mailing list at fine-boxes.com fine-boxes.com/ and just received his newsletter with a link to his article “A Riddle in the Sand”. Very, very interesting. In the article, Mr. Crawford argues that abrasives have evolved rapidly in recent decades and should be part of the toolkit of any woodworker, not just for finishing and p...

Thinking about my LumberJocks blog

08-04-2010 02:11 PM by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 7 comments »

After finishing a design for a client which involved a graphic header for his emails, I got thinking in my normally obsessive way about other graphic heads. Then I got thinking about my own emails. Then I wanted to go one step beyond what I had just finished.So I designed an animated gif for my email header.That was sort of fun.Then I thought about other ways to use this sort of thing.Naturally, I had to go to the LJ blog.Using a header for a blog is done, not by many, but it works.So I did w...
