ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

BOULLE MARQUETRY WITH BRASS, PEWTER AND FAUX TORTOISE SHELL - a beginners approach #3: Preparing the marquetry panels for gluing down, and sanding the panels ready for engraving.

Probably the best of the color combinations. A Premier Partie with a back ground of black and faux tortoise shell. PREPARING THE MAREQUETRY PANELS FOR GLUING ONTO THE SUBSTRATE I had already decide to use epoxy glue for my assembly – but more on this later ………. With the marquetry ‘jigsaws’ assembled on the gummed paper I used a black pigmented epoxy to fill the visible saw kerfs in the design. Traditionally, crushed charcoal mixed with shellac was used. I applied my pigmented epo...

Hot Hide Glue Experimentation #3: Hammering Veneer

11-22-2016 04:25 PM by Lazyman | 6 comments »

So I finally finished hammering the veneer to my project. Not sure what I was thinking when for my first veneer attempt I chose a project where the entire front surface has no right angles in the veneer plus a curved cutout. A curved surface on the interior of the frame was also quite a challenge. The first challenge was caused by the fact that the veneer is so thin. Because you basically saturate both sides of the veneer with hot glue before you hammer it down, the thin veneer had a ten...

Hot Hide Glue Experimentation #1: Prep and First Try

10-18-2016 01:17 PM by Lazyman | 2 comments »

I posted a forum topic recently asking about the best way to attach some veneer to a project I am planning and one of the recommendations was to use hot hide glue (HHG). I’ve seen posts before from fellow LJs about how much they like using HHG and have been meaning to to give it a try so I decided this was a good excuse. I will share my journey in this blog. Step 1: Research. I spent a couple of days understanding the history, uses, pros and cons, tools and techniques. Of course...
