Dance on a Volcano II #4: Skating Away on the Thin Ice of a New Day

12-01-2012 05:48 PM by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

At three o’clock in the morning my brain usually wakes up. It then starts to worry about random things. In an effort to stop this keeping me awake for the rest of the night I generally give it something real to worry about. Like how on Earth do I perform EZ Mitre on a box with only 17mm of contact at each corner. To illustrate The four black corners at the top have joints 17 mm long to the sides. Scary. This seemed to be enough to divert my waking mind. Well it said you’ve ...

Dance on a Volcano II #3: The big cover up

11-28-2012 07:38 PM by BritBoxmaker | 5 comments »

Well the top pattern was successful and now I have this board which I need to attach the black, outside layer to. The finally visible pattern part of this board is, with the board flat like this, a square of 116 mm sides. So I cut a piece of 18 mm MDF to this size. The arc patterns emerge out of this area mid-way along each side and the three arcs total 24mm wide. So I marked 24 mm midway along each side of the square. These marks, when aligned with the arcs on all four s...

Any Colour You Like #4: Brain Damage

I cut through the alignment marks at the edge, flipped it and lined it up over the pattern. Using the same scalpel blade marking trick to define the outline. I then joined up the marks with scalpel and ruler. Finally cutting all the way through ( its only two layers of veneer and a core of MDF, after all). This sat nicely on the top of the side...

Any Colour You Like #2: Breathe

10-21-2012 05:34 PM by BritBoxmaker | 20 comments »

The board came out of glue-up OK...First thing to do, trim the excess off the bottom edge...Now the vertical rounded pillars. They were going to be Ebony but such was the dye success with the black that I decided to opt for dyed Sycamore. This is English Sycamore, which is a creamy white, not it’s American cousin...I cut the above wide enough to do both sides of a box corner and rounded both edges. Then dyed them up...The sun came out. For a moment I thought I wasn’t in England an...

Veneering a table top chess table #2: Putting the Apron on the chess surface

06-16-2007 01:19 AM by Karson | 5 comments »

Placing the apron on the veneered chess surface.First you sand the edge of the chess surface to make all edges smooth. Then you select the veneer that you want for the aprons. I selected Bees Wing Eucalyptus from Dons’ and Tony Wards and other’s country Australia. I cut the sheets with enough length to allow for a full overlap on the outside edge. I am taping them to the surface with the back side up. I place the apron veneer all the way around I turn it over and tape all of the s...
