A LumberJock offered to me a most wonderful gift. Some time in his shop.

07-31-2008 01:09 AM by Karson | 16 comments »

No it was not an offer of free wood. A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be h...

Aalto Inspired Tea Cart #3: Refining the laminations and underwater basket weaving

07-13-2008 07:32 PM by bfd | 5 comments »

Did I mention how over my head I am with this project? Well after taking a week off from woodworking between a trip to Vegas and not being able to work in the shop due to the smokey air in the Sacramento area I am back to work. Now that I have the laminations glued up I needed to figure out a way to trim them down to finished width. I intentionally glued the laminations up at 3 1/2” knowing that I needed to yield a 2 1/2” wide leg. This was a challenge since I couldn’t u...

Demilune table tops #2: Scalloped Front Demilune

07-03-2008 05:32 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 31 comments »

I started a new Style demilune table some time ago, but keep getting side tracked. A.D.D., I think. I made a plexiglass template for this one since it makes building them easier, and reproducing a piece of cake. The normal way for me to build a curved front apron is with bendy board over a form, and then put in the vacuum bag for a few hours. This one I made using M.D.F., using small pieces and “laying them up like a brick wall”. Just different sized pieces on every other...

Marquetry #1: An age old craft

07-01-2008 05:29 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 8 comments »

Hi all; After reading Douglas’s blog on marquetry I figured I would add a few comments about the fine art of marquetry. Rather than do a lot of typing here, it’s easier to just provide a link to the page on my site. I’ve always been a bit lazy. This is listed under the scroll saw index, as well as the veneering index. http://www.prowoodworkingtips.com/Marquetry_Basics.html I hope it provides some additional information for anyone wanting to give this a try. ...

Today I was called and asked if wanted some wood, so obviously I said yeah! I then inquired as t the type of wood and was told it was oak. I was going to have to drive to the guys house approx. 1-1 1/2 hours away so I then asked how much to make sure it was worth the drive and advised that he had a trailer load all around 10 foot long and around 12 inches wide. I hooked up the trailer jumped in the truck and off I went. I got there and sure enough he had a trailer load and said he had more if...

Resawing wood and veneers #1: The Laguna Driftmaster Fence System

05-26-2008 03:20 AM by Karson | 14 comments »

Well I went ahead and did it. A woodworking e-mail blog stated that Laguna Driftmaster fence system for cutting veneers and I went to their web site and viewed the video. I’ve cut veneers and thin strips of wood before, but never with a lot of accuracy. The kitchen cabinets that I made in NJ was made with Ambrosia Maple that was sawed into 1/4” slices and sanded to 5.2MM. It was then installed into a metric plywood router bit set for stile and rails. I wanted to do something...

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
