At last I have photos to describe one more saw cutting marquetry style. I’m new to this one and didn’t feel up to trying to describe it without good photos. The “Painting in Wood” style of marquetry cutting dates to early 17th century France and gets its name from the relationship of the typical subject material to the work of the painters of the period. The brightly colored baskets of fruit and flowers typical of many pieces of this period are examples of this styl...

In this episode:Gluing up the box. Cutting the splines. Separating the lid.
I was inspired last week to find yet another use for my Sing Honeycomb Panels. We’re launching a line of insulated panels for overhead garage doors. I’ve noticed that too many nice homes have dinged up garage doors. It’s because garage doors are expensive to repair. You don’t want to replace a panel for a golf ball dent, so you let it go until the damage is beyond cosmetic. Soon, you’ve run into the garage door with your car or time has made the edges drafty, so ...
Well I’d done some work stripping down the box to make re-covering it a little easier and started planning which new pieces we’d need this key board cover to be copied in veneered 3mm Birch ply. I have made a TurboCAD 3D model of the Accordion to help with visualising different wood veneer/ banding finishes. I don’t use Sketchup, I’ve nothing against it, having thoroughly learnt one CAD package I don’t see why I should have to start from s...
Ok, with the panels laid up I got the edges planed to trim to final dimensions then, i have to admit, for fear of tearout I sanded rather than smoothing the faces with a hand plane. Here shooting the edging strip that covers the top end of the lamination, the idea was to bring this down to about 1/16” so that it would coincide more or less with the round over on the edges and become near invisible.. Now to get the other bits done.. Keyboard supports....
Hello all.. I have recently been working on some wooden parts for a rather worse for wear Yamaha upright Piano.. My work was all but done, just left with the assembly and final polish ahead. Unfortunately, the client at this stage has now decided they don’t want to pay the price and offered me, well, an insult, so at some point I guess I will be putting some piano shaped shelving together :) I have lost a substantial amount of time on this job, the first time I have done any lamin...
A good friend of mine and local Accordion player of note, Tom Pearce, has ask me to collaborate on the refurb/ upgrading of an old instrument He’s done the initial separation of the parts He has asked if I can make a new carcass for it. This could be expensive and time consuming in solid wood (the first idea) but looking at it the plywood body is in good condition with some work needed on the plastic coating (green bit). Tommy is after a natural wood finish instead so I...
After a month of development based on the feedback I got here, I finally managed to release Carpenter Pro, this time, it calculates how many plywood sheets are needed to finish your project and get detailed cutlist diagram for each stock sheet needed. It allows you to specify the dimensions & grain direction for your stock sheets material, specify the dimensions and the required grain direction for each part you need to cut for your project, and set the kerf amount, then watch this app ge...
I have a high school fine arts and academic competition coming up this spring and I decided to build a music stand and enter it into the woodworking category. Right now I am in the planning stage. I want to use a similar design to the Graham Nash music stand made by Blake(http://lumberjocks.com/Blake) . I am considering using walnut veneer for the panels and hard maple for the frame around it. I have been working on it with SketchUp. I am hoping to create a stand that is height-adjustable but...
