2270 days ago by pyromedic602 | 6 comments »

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...

2284 days ago 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...

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

My first chest of drawers (small)

2336 days ago by Jimthecarver | 11 comments »

I built this small chest of drawers from scrap wood that was just laying around the shop. It started with a phone call from my Dad. He had explained that he needed a small chest with 3 drawers to fit between the beds in his fifth wheel trailor. The measurements of 14.5” X 18” X 27” was a tight fit so I decided to use the space wisely and not have an overhang on the top. I decided to use the Herring bone pattern on the top to use up a few small scrap pieces of Oak and Maple,(...

Jewelry Box #2: Top veneer

2351 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 9 comments »

I have picked out the venner I will be useing for the top of my jewlery box. I decided on birds eye maple. Now alot of people said to get some kind of rosewood veneer, but the birds eye maple was so beautiful and I couldn’t resist. I am going to be staining the oak with a nice brownish golden look, and the maple will probobly just be left the way that it is. It should look good with the oak when the oak is stained. I want to hear what you think about this choice. I think that it could b...
