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!

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...

Hello again. I printed out a plan and side elevation 1:1 so The first thing to do is make a simple jig for cutting circles (arcs) in wood veneer. 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...
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...

Is there any other kind. Its mostly black. I know of a black wood or two...
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 ...
