It seems like only yesterday that I built my first chevalet from a few photos on the internet and began to try to figure out how to use it. Well it wasn’t yesterday and it wasn’t last year either. It was almost four years ago and while I did learn on my own and produced some reasonably good pieces of work, things really started to ramp up for me when I attended The American School of French Marquetry in Feb of 2012 and 2013. The skill training was invaluable but the inspiration...
Summers Woodworking Second Annual Bird House Contest. This is my humble entry. There are some very talented and creative folks entering this year! I had this hubcap that I purchased some time back for a few $ and this is what ended up happening. http://youtu.be/ELPT5kOQVvE Chris
Hello every one. If you are currently using eCabinets then you have probably installed there wood products library this is a library with a variety of legs from Adams Wood Products and several decorative carvings from Hafele. These are 3D objects that you can use on your cabinets/Projects although these objects cannot be machined on the router they are very useful in creating a presentation of your project. You also have probably found out that you cannot resize these objects. Well there i...
I saw an ad when I first joined this site a moment ago called Grab It on this site which is a widget for projects/blogs and this sort of thing. It gave me a script to copyand paste somewhere but I found no other instructions about what to do with this or how to get the widget. confused… any help would be appreciated.
Hello every one. If you viewed all three of the videos that I posted yesterday then you saw me use the calculator that I made in excel to come up with the constraints for the flutes in part 3. Today I would like to share the video that shows how I made this calculator. Check it out and let me know what you think.http://youtu.be/DqeCcdPCfKM
In the above video, and in the below 10 steps, I teach one of the most basic and essential skills in traditional woodworking: how to square, flatten, & dimension your own rough lumber into finished boards. To build quality traditional furniture, you need to start with perfectly flat and square lumber. Some people achieve this with power jointers, planers, and table saws. While the electrical power route is more economical for a commercial woodworking workshop, I prefer the safet...
Hello every one. Today I have 3 videos that I would like to share with you. They demonstrate how to create fluted moldings in eCabinets that will dynamically adjust their size when you change the cabinet. If you have ever used fluted moldings on your cabinets then you probably created a display board or display panel or even a display cube. Then applied them to the cabinet. This method although a bit more involved will make this a lot easier in the long run. So be sure to watch all 3 and let...
As promised some news on the marquetry top for the treasure box series #2 The challenge here is to insert the oval white bone inlay first then cut the rest of the background repositioning the pack perfectly as some of the marquetry looks like it moves in front and in the back of those bones. I first build the pack with 4 layers of paperbacked ebony sawn veneer I used a idea of mine and an idea from Patrick to locate perfectly the veneer with the 2 drawings that had to be used...
