Bowling Alley Workbench #14: Chop Chop Laddie. (the leg vise)

08-12-2009 03:44 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

This project is a fine example of the 80/20 concept. it takes 20% of the project time to complete 80% of it, and then, 80% of the project time to finish the last 20% of the project. As it gets to the details, things take longer to think through, plan out, cut…mill…glue… and finesse. this time it’s the leg vise Chop, and although not completely finished (still need to trim, round off, and apply BLO), it’s construction is done. I was originally planning to us...

resawing #3: some samples straight off the new jig

06-18-2009 04:07 AM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

I promise not to start posting every log I resaw (lest my blog becoming nothing but!), but I think folks interested in resawing, or copying the jig I just made might like to see some more samples. First, I forgot I got some shots of this (before giving it away as a gift to a coworker girl who wants to paint on it like a canvas), but here’s some of that first log of Ficus microcarpa, resawn to veneer-like thinness: It’s about 1/16”-3/32” thick on one end, ...

I had a friend ask me to help him out. I thought it was appropriate to post this on my blog as somewhat a tutorial. Any additional information would be great and I welcome any comments. Maybe you have some tricks up your sleeve I have yet to find. Veneer: problem with bubbling Bulk woodshop supplies

Dresser Rehab #1: A Pink Beginning

06-10-2009 03:18 AM by gregb | 3 comments »

I picked up this dresser thanks to craigslist.com~~ free section. As you can see the previous owner dreiced to pain the whole thing PINK!!! The construction is solid and the dovetails are still tight, whick is always a plus. This picture is of the sides. You can see that there is an additional panel that I haven’t decided whether or not I’m gonna keep it. Any thoughts here would be greatly appreciated. As far as my plans I am going to take off the olf v...

That was the mistake! - Inlay Banding

05-23-2009 01:54 PM by John8059 | 13 comments »

I am finally working on this project again and ran into another problem. You can find out how I got this far from blogs I posted earlier. Last time I showed how I set up guides to cutting the inlay banding grooves. I eventually got all the inlay banding installed, but when I went to sand it flush with the veneer I found I could feel that the resulting surface was uneven. If I could feel it, imagine how bad it was going to look finished! (Keep in mind my hands are trained to feel irregula...

Veneer Chess Board Project

03-30-2009 06:38 PM by souichiro | 4 comments »

I have started a full sized chess board made out of veneer. The squares are made from Nigerian Satinwood, Curly Maple, and edged with Mozambique. I used a dyed black veneer on it’s side for banding between the squares, and a pre-made banding for the outer trim. The board was made with most likely the most common method of cutting strips, and glueing them into a stripe pattern. Then cutting equal strips the other direction and glueing into the checker pattern. I added very thi...

Marquetry Demo #1: Marquetry Tutorial - VERY rough

03-11-2009 04:52 AM by TheCaver | 16 comments »

Let me make a disclaimer here. Some people requested a procedural series on this and I threw this together in 17 minutes! There are mistakes and this thing is ROUGH at best, but it will give you an idea on how to get started…Think of it as an outline, not an exhaustive tutorial…..Off we go…. You’ll need these items….Veneer, a craft knife with a new xacto blade (don’t use cheap off brands, the good ones are less frustrating and they don’t cost that ...

01-25-2009 07:27 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 70 comments »

Hi Everyone; I just got the go ahead to build a 17 foot dining room table. This going to be challenging, as it has three pedestal bases, which are heavily carved, have some japanning and gold leaf, in addition to veneering. The top will be veneered, include some marquetry, have a couple leaves, which will be stored in table structure. I have to admit, I’m wondering what I got myself into this time, but being the president of the imaginary; ”If It Ain’t Impossible, W...

Kitchen Remodel #7: Cabinet building continues

10-29-2008 03:34 AM by Karson | 15 comments »

Well I’ve still been busy building additional cabinets. I’m working on the lower cabinets, because the upper cabinets need to match placement of the lower cabinets and I’m now working myself into a corner. That’s the sink corner. Old picture. It’s just to the right of the range. So what I’ve accomplished is building the cabinets to the left of the range. The range is being moved about 18” to the left so the cabinets that I’m building...
