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.

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...

For this I will be using; an offcut of 18mm MDF, four pieces of 3mm Hardboard (Masonite) and a 6mm dowel. First drill a 6mm hole 15mm in from two adjacent edges in all the Hardboard pieces. and a 6mm hole near one end and central in the MDF Glue the dowel into the hole in the MDF and using a suitable jig, route (with a st...

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...

Sanding veneer leafs

03-12-2012 01:35 PM by xylophage | 3 comments »

Ok, so I have made some nice things in my day, but all were made out of solid wood. The only real experience i have with veneer, was with comercial veneer at a cabinet shop I worked at briefly. So a year ago I found an amazing pice of 8\4 quilted maple. I plan on using this wood for a desk. I was able to cut the leafs myself on my laguna bandsaw. Now, here is the part i could use some sage advice. I am not sure on how to sand them down to final thickness. I know i will have to rent some time ...

Oak Boat Bed #4: Applying the Veneer

02-28-2012 11:56 AM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Unlike my normal boat bed, this one will not be painted. It will be built in oak. Using oak on most of the project is, for the most part, straight forward. Not much different the using the maple and MDF on the painted version, until we come to the Bow of the Boat (AKA the toy box). Since we have a curved bow, a veneer must be used over the bending plywood. In prepping, I make sure all my staples are driven. I also fill all staple holes and imperfections with Bondo. This will keep tho...
