Launching the Tünr Dresser

1026 days ago by Jacquelyn Smith | 3 comments »

for more pics check out my blog here! My client, Jeffrey, and I imagined, designed and built the first point of purchase (pop) product display unit for tünr last summer. Tünr was the imagination of my brother Jeffrey coming to life as he dreamed, planned, proposed, organized and made crucial decisions. He had this idea; “Fine Tune Your Feet”. This is what he called tünr the sock and lace company that is now launched on the Internet and in street boutiques across the country. He approach...

Marquetry Projects #1: The Dipper

1075 days ago by Mathew Nedeljko | 9 comments »

With a lot of help and inspiration from fellow Lumberjock Shipwright, I recently completed my own chevalet de marqueterie. I took a lot of pictures to document the build, and I will be posting a blog series on that topic soon. In this blog I will share my progress as I learn to use this the new tool. A scan from Lawrence Threadgold’s book Beginning Picture Marquetry shows what I will hopefully end up with. The artistic process begins with the selection of the veneer. Included in ...

Kitchen Remodel #16: Mini Cabinets and Soffit upgrade

1089 days ago by Karson | 19 comments »

I built two mini cabinets (Spice Racks) that are beside the microwave and fill in the space between it and the two cabinets on each side. The original soffit was about 12” high like the builders put up. I tore them out and made them shorter so the cabinets could be taller. I did fine a couple of water pipes and a sink drain so I couldn’t make a totally flat ceiling but I ended up with a 4” soffit. Two 2X4’s and some drywall. I then decided to cover the front o...

Making a TV stand

1091 days ago by Angela | 0 comments »

Design I’ll be posting most of the in-depth instructions and photos on my website WoodWorkersWebsite.com but I also wanted to mention a few things here regarding what I’ve learned while making this project. It’s the second indoor project, the first was a clock. I spend most of my time practicing my woodworking skills by making things for my garage. I designed this project myself which makes it very different from following a plan. I’ve designed almost everythin...

A new dining room set for my wife! #35: Veneering starts, but first a little primer.

1151 days ago by GaryK | 15 comments »

It seems that I have sparked some interest in some of you with the veneering aspect of this job. I am not an expert at it but I do have a few tips that might be interesting to those who have never done it before. First is sharpening an Exacto (or whatever brand you are using) blade. I didn’t learn this for a long time. I just bought a bunch of blades and threw them away as they got dull. But they are so easy to sharpen I have been kicking myself in the head for not finding out soo...

A whale of a time (Marquetry) #2: The Layout

1188 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

Okay, I got approval form the customer and time to get started on the project. To pattern it I enlisted the services from a local sign company. They printed it up with the colors separated life size (life size to the bed not life size in the wild). They made me some mask to use as the pattern. Here is also the wood I choose to use. They are Quarter Sawn Walnut (dark color) and Lacewood (reddish color): These were masks so I was able to stick them to the veneer pieces. I cut them out...

A whale of a time (Marquetry) #1: The Plan

1189 days ago by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

I’m starting a very exciting project. Anything new that I try is exciting for me. I love new things and new techniques. I build a lot of murphy beds, as you can see from my post, but when I got customer wanting to add a whale design to one, I was all in. I don’t consider myself an artist or my work art, so this would be my first attempt at something like that. I’ve heard and read a little on marquetry and decided this would be the direction I’d take the customer....

Sandpaper Storage Cabinet #1: Sandpaper Storage Cabinet-1

1271 days ago by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at askhuck@hucksdiy.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
