In this time lapse woodworking video I’m using a vacuum bag to laminate 2 panels together, to create a single 3/8’’ thick panel with Bubinga and Walnut on either side. I had the 2 different veneers already on a mdf substrate, so it was simply cutting to size applying glue and turning on the press. Hope you enjoy and thanks for watchingPaul
I’m working on a new top for the sliding hatch on my sailboat to replace the $136 piece of medium bronze acrylic that I sat on the other day…. Crack !!!.... This time I cold molded a curved panel from 3 pieces of 1/8” cedar on opposing diagonals and decided to make it appear to be a solid mahogany hatch. This would be difficult to press with either my screw press or clamps and would require substantial jigging to vacuum bag so the obvious answer seemed to be to hammer it. Of...
Gosh Darn Everyone … that was pretty mean of me to leave you all in suspense like that!! But pressing the main Art Nouveau design onto the front of the wine box turned out absolutely fine … and better yet … I found those missing photos relating to the other 3 panels!! BUT ... before I get farther into this blog I’m wondering if anyone out there has had a window jump up in front of them while on this particular site stating: ”Warning … Visiting this site...
Here is the final product http://lumberjocks.com/projects/83379 All in all I learned a lot and most importantly had tons of fun. I felt my skill level just about doubled with each piece I laid down. There are A LOT of things I would have done differently – including buying a veneer saw a lot earlier on. I picked up on a good tip shipwright posted in the comments on my first blog. There is a link to an awesome video by Patrick Edwards. My next veneer project will be a lot mo...
Patricks's Blog #1: Recreating a process - Videos - Hand tools, veneer, picking machine and chevalet
Couple years ago Patrick Edwards from Antique Refinishers and the American School of French Marquetry whom I work with, was featured in 2 videos published by Graham Blackburn and bought by Popular woodworking. They have been kind enough to grant us access to those 2 videos. Here is what Patrick posted on his blog: Graham Blackburn VideosI remember when MTV first appeared and for the first time we could watch music videos on our TV. Then YouTube was developed and we could watch videos o...
I assembled the box walls using hot hide glue rub joints. since I had a seamless fit, no clamps were used. I was going to shoot some brads for additional strength but decided against it. After it sat for a day, I could not pull this box apart as it was. Short of using a spreader or mechanical advantage, these joints were going nowhere. I then measured and cut the MDF for the top and bottom. After cut, I veneered what was to be the inside. One with the walnut I sliced on the bandsaw and one...
Hammer veneering is something I played with recently and enjoyed. Unfortunitely I didn’t put any thought into the finished product and it came out like crap. I accomplished my goal of playing around with the tools and technique. I am kind of bored now and don’t want to start any big projects, so I figured I would make myself a little box. I got some sequenced matched bubinga veneer from Woodcraft for about 9.00. I also picked up a quarter sheet of 1/2” MDF from home depot...
I really like those 3 videos Christopher Schwartz came to do at the workshop a while ago. They are pretty good in my opinion let me know what you think! Hide (& Animal Protein) Glues: Background, Selection and How to Prepare Hammer Veneering: How To Apply Decorative Veneers Using Only Hand Tools If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask, we may do complementary video even if time is scarce.
The reason why this blog launches impose position that a recent find.Specifically, professionalized am working on this beautiful technique, marquetry, and founded Atelier artistic craft “Marquetry Design”. A special state commission of the Ministry of Finance and Economy, in my home and workshop, has estimated that my craft work to the criteria of artistic craftsmanship, so I got the official government certificate. However, in my community, given the entrepreneurial pos...
So last weekend did not work out the way I had planned. I only had about an hour on Friday to get into the shop, but I finished putting together my new Sawstop and actually turned in on. Nice and quiet! I still haven’t run a board through it, but it sounded nice. I was really looking forward to making some serious dust! But I had promised a sleep-over for the grandkids so the shop would have to wait till Saturday. As Friday progressed, I became increasingly convinced I was coming d...
