Rings #3: next phase of rings

07-27-2013 11:50 PM by Thomas Hanson | 3 comments »

I’ve probably given away about 20 rings by now to friends and nurses I met during my difficulties. I wanted to get a bit more sophisticated now that I’m used to my lathe. Here are a few more. This one is Osage, red cedar (juniperis) and walnut veneer. This one is pecan heartwood and osage orange. This one is walnut and pecan sapwood. This is just plain Elm but I like the photo. Here are a couple of my attempts to add veneer to the rings. They tend to want to ...

Balanced Work Bench #1: Building a Semi-Classic workbench without taking a 2nd out on your house

07-16-2013 05:32 PM by Jeremiah | 2 comments »

Here goes…. Traditional work benches (roubo for example) are out dated. I know, heresy. But it’s true The reason they made those crazy over sized legs and joints was because they didnt have sheetgoods back then and they needed to over build them to deal with the lateral and horizontal force they experienced. It is my opinion that pine 2×6’s and 3/4 ply MORE than cover any of the structural needs of a work bench. So the next big argument FOR traditional w...

Simple Jigs and Techniques #3: Matching Short Grain Veneer Border

06-30-2013 12:56 AM by shipwright | 13 comments »

As the series title says, this is a simple technique but when I discovered it it was a “Dohhh !!!” moment so I thought I might spare someone the pain. I like to use short grain borders, especially nice straight grains like cedar on picture frames, table tops and that sort of thing. I never had a problem getting good fits at the joints but often matching the grain was a bit of a challenge….. then one day this arrived in my (slow) brain and now it is a breeze even when the gra...

Time lapse Woodworking #17: Walnut Bubinga Vacuum Bag oh my (-:

05-23-2013 03:57 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

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

Hide Glue for Beginners #4: A Little Hammer Veneering Video

05-14-2013 12:17 AM by shipwright | 30 comments »

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 layers 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...

Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga #11: Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga

05-07-2013 07:09 AM by justoneofme | 16 comments »

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...

04-10-2013 10:09 PM by Patricelejeune | 9 comments »

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...
