You will see some amazing joinery and craftsmanship in this slide show. Great for ideas… An ad man named Leonard Fenton has spent well over two decades now working on Artemesia, reputedly the largest Craftsman house ever built. And it is something. The 13,300-square-foot mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood was built a century ago by Frederick Engstrum, a construction tycoon who built downtown’s lovely Rosslyn Hotel, according to a story last year in Los Angeles Ma...

So after two weeks of work and experimenting I have finally finished the parquet. All the 120 pieces are dead square and equal in size, down to a error of .01mm.So we made a total of 1200 pieces and only about 360-400 was usable. Than the best work begun, laying the pieces and gluing edge to edge: So after about 4 hours of intense concentration I was done. And a close-up: Tomorrow I will glue this up on a fibre board with a back of Brazilian Rosewood; got to have a nice und...
So, yesterday the shop was flooded, veneers floating around all over, jigs all became trash and machines all wet…We spent all monday carrying hundreds of liters of water. On a happier note, i finnished all the 400 pieces of Honduras mahogany veneer for the table project.Today i will lay a test parquet to see if it gets tight enough.
This is the first post about my latest project, a small sidetabe. The Originals where made by younger students as there 2nd furniture.Here are the plans: The project is plit into two parts, a paquet and the table itselfe. Im working on the parqet for now. At the moment im building some jigs for cutting veneer into the herring-bone pattern. The first jig is done, one for ripcutting the veneers and a mock glueup of veneers are done. More to come!
We did a new video on this hide glue series on a low-tech technique to veneer columns. Please comment it helps us progress in our videos and do not hesitate to ask question we will do a video to answer you.
Last time I posted on that project I was steam bending my mouldings. The columned were veneered in a previous post.

It is uploading at the moment so go see it later if you are interested in learning how to veneer columns, we are pretty proud of it. The columns were turned with groves to allow for black rings. T...
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...
Check out the finished product here. Thanks for following along.
I had some more time to work on my table before to be really interrupted by the parcment job. You can see the post related to the parchment table there Top as been veneered with old brown glue, my favorite liquid hide glue, shaped and sanded and I did straighten the edges for a nice clean fit. I have ben playing with steam bending. Russ Filbeck lent us one of his steamer. I used a PVC pipe to dip my cherry moulding in dyed black water to soak them through ...
