How I did it . . . #1: The Dresser

10-13-2011 09:21 PM by Jacquelyn Smith | 6 comments »

Design to Conception Are you interested in doing inlay, veneer, designing and building a project on your own? Here’s an example of a job I designed and built for a client last year. I already had a blog ( before discovering LJ. My guess is that most clients probably aren’t very interested in how I build other projects, only theirs. Given the community here, I thought I’d try writing about how I came to design and build the tünr (pronounced “tune-r”) dresser. ...

Launching the Tünr Dresser

10-08-2011 08:48 PM 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

08-20-2011 08:23 PM 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

08-06-2011 06:34 PM 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

08-05-2011 12:57 AM by Angela | 0 comments »

Design I’ll be posting most of the in-depth instructions and photos on my website 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.

06-06-2011 01:31 AM 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

04-29-2011 06:43 PM 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...
