Simple Veneered box #4: Completed!

04-26-2013 02:17 AM by lumberjoe | 1 comment »

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...

Then YouTube was developed and we could watch videos o...

Simple Veneered box #3: Part 3 - the top, bottom and outside

04-09-2013 02:26 PM by lumberjoe | 8 comments »

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...

Simple Veneered box #1: Simple Hammer Veneered box Part 1 - getting started

04-06-2013 03:12 AM by lumberjoe | 3 comments »

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...

What's a woodworker to do?

02-01-2013 08:55 AM by Natalie | 16 comments »

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...

Dance on a Volcano II #1: Design and material selection

11-24-2012 04:22 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

When I made the wall hanging, Dance on a Volcano I considered at one point making it into an EZ Mitre box. I liked the pattern so much as it was that it stayed that way. I go past it on the Stairway to Devon, every day and it always makes me think of a box alternative. So I set about designing one, using TurboCAD to 3D model it. I came up with this. My initial thoughts were to make it in solid wood, much like the original using; Sycamore, Pau Amarello, Yew, Padauk, Purpleheart and Ebon...
