Something with an "R" #2: Materials & getting started

06-13-2015 05:19 PM by sras | 7 comments »

I wanted to have a specific color combination: . Yellow field, Black letters and Red trim. . I chose Yellowheart, Wenge and Bloodwood. I had never worked with any of these before. While shopping, I found some sycamore for the inside of the box. Here is a shot of the bloodwood trim strips. Here is a view of the sycamore ready to be glued to the mdf core. You can see the plastic wrap under the pieces. That is folded over the top. And clamped with a backing board. Once...

Flatten Veneer with Hot Aluminum Plates! #1: I really want to know what you think about this!

06-01-2015 02:48 AM by CharlieK | 6 comments »

I just completed a video that shows How to Flatten Veneer using hot aluminum plates. This really is an amazing technique! I am very impressed by how well it works. My friend Tom Schrunk showed me this technique and he was nice enough to participate in the video with me. I did upload a very short video from the Handworks event, but that was just kind of a quickie. I really put a LOT of effort into this one! I tried some new things in this video and it would really help me to know wha...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #20: Veneering the lid and preparing the bandings

05-23-2015 01:18 AM by Patricelejeune | 9 comments »

With those and of year year festivities, I still have been able to advance a bit this project, between making macarons with my wife for the end of the year gifts for our friends And also, after a snow fall due to a cold front coming from Canada, a little bit of playing in the snow in the mountains with my wife, like any San Diegan. I finished to put together the marquetry panels. The bone where finally dyed I inserted those last pieces in the top and sides ...

Complex Curve Veneered Box Series #2: Making the box Carcass and veneering

12-06-2014 06:35 PM by Matt Nudi | 9 comments »

So for the box itself, this is the basic sketchup model for what I’m going for. I am trying to model this after one of “RogerBean’s” projects, hi maple burl box. However I am adding a drawer into it so it will differentiate a little bit from his process. The hardest part will be the two meet ups of two curves that occurs on the front of the box. After some thinking, I came up with some basic dimensions and my thought process for how I was going to be able to add in...

Trio of veneered boxes #2: More veneer work in the Kitchen

11-11-2014 06:45 AM by jmartel | 8 comments »

Well, the bike is still down. Managed to fix my starting issue, but now it doesn’t hold idle. It’s always something. With modern diagnostics, I can check/change fueling and many other parameters with a laptop. The laptop was out to upload a new map, but unfortunately it isn’t going to help my idle issue. That’s more of a mechanical problem I believe. Unfortunately for these projects, that means that I still can’t do any work in the garage. That means I nee...
