03-17-2011 03:47 AM by drewnahant | 1 comment »

I have been thinking about making something in a more classical style for a while. The decision of what to make was actually an afterthought, im building it mostly for fun and practice, so I was more concerned with style, technique, and joinery, but here’s the criteria I came up with -Incorporate turning ( I enjoy turning, but have never actually turned a set of spindles, legs, or any other kind of matching set)-Mortise and tennon joinery ( I’m in the middle of building a p...

Hand made radius inlay banding

01-25-2011 04:46 AM by Les Hastings | 10 comments »

We needed six pieces of radius tulipwood inlays for this project. They were going to cost around $1200.00 to get them. There was a 100 piece minimum of each radius. So I spent about four hours and made my own. See the wolf? Didn’t see it until I was all done, it just kind of happened. Thanks for looking and have fun woodworking!

My Steampunk Telescope #4: Applying head knowledge.

01-17-2011 02:15 AM by TelescopeMaker | 5 comments »

Learning things about woodworking is like a lot of other things. You can get a lot of book knowledge and over intellectualize it, but in reality, there is no substitute for actually getting your hands dirty and doing it. I have been combing YouTube videos on everything from making guitars and violins looking for ways to do fancy inlays to how to do beautiful French polish. I read up on how to make non-splotchy stain finishes and how to smooth the wood with a scraper so that milling marks w...

The Art of Wood #4: Why Wood?

01-10-2011 09:13 PM by Rogue | 0 comments »

I like wood because you can put stuff in it. I don’t mean you can make a box and fill it with things. That’s not the kind of stuff I’m talking about. I mean the sort of stuff that makes us willing to change the worst baby diaper or ride your bike 50 miles a day out in the cold to train for a race. The stuff that makes you satisfied and at peace when you come home after a hard day’s work. Even though your body aches, your heart is well and warm. It’s more th...

Creating Wood Inlay Bandings...A Step by Step Process #3: A Banding with Checkers

01-09-2011 07:22 PM by Bob Simmons | 10 comments »

“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn’t then it is of no use to us.” Carlos Castaneda…Peruvian-born American anthropologist and author…(1925-1998) (This banding pattern will be referred to as Banding #2 for the sake of convenience.) Banding #2 with Checkers can easily be understood and made in the shop if we take a few minute...

Creating Wood Inlay Bandings...A Step by Step Process #1: A Study of Creating Wood Inlay Bandings...Banding #1

01-05-2011 06:49 PM by Bob Simmons | 0 comments »

“Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.”Mark Twain…American Author and Humorist…(1835-1910) We will refer to the banding in the illustration as “Banding #1” for the convenience of identity. For this example the dimensions for the inlay package are 4” x 10” x 3/8”. For this instance the length of the sliced banding would work well for a typical picture frame that houses a 5” x 7” picture. When making ...
