Marquetry Cutting Styles #4: "Painting in Wood"

05-03-2012 12:58 AM by shipwright | 27 comments »

The brightly colored baskets of fruit and flowers typical of many pieces of this period are examples of this styl...

Demilune table tops #3: Demilune Table

07-31-2010 09:15 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 27 comments »

Another Demilune Table. This one has a crotch Mahogany Top, with solid Mahogany legs. The legs have a little detail, just to spice them up a bit. I used a jig to cut the cove in the leg bottoms, and to cut dado’s in for a bead molding. While a dado blade in the table saw would work for the dado’s, it wouldn’t do the cove. So, I used a simple jig to do both. I used 2 layers of 3/8” bendy board for the apron, glued up in the vacuum bag, and unibond 800 Ures Resin ...

Veneering #3: Bath Vanity

04-12-2008 09:13 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 22 comments »

Here’s a bathroom vanity we made for a client a number of years ago. I never got back there to get a shot when the wall was finished. It’s made using Curly Maple Veneer over bendy board, and Rosewood. The curves were formed in a vacuum bag over a form, and an air bladder. The finish is conversion varnish. Thanks; Lee

Marquetry with Inlaying Pearl, and Abalone.

08-04-2014 05:43 PM by Dennis Zongker | 20 comments »

Practicing marquetry for my next box. It’s been awhile for me, so figuring out which style and color of veneers to use can be the hardest part, just getting started. This design took me about three weeks to come up with and will to be used for the top of a Gem Box that I am working on. Cutting out the Pearl and Abalone and inserting into this practice piece top was a little time consuming but very enjoyable. Using basically the Window Method, cutting out the sharp corners where th...
