Inlay card table refurbish #2: So far, so good

11-25-2015 03:02 PM by peterrum | 1 comment »

The curled bits of inlay were carefully removed from the table and put aside. Then I used some water and a steam iron to heat the vacant areas and remove the old glue from the plywood base. I also used the same technique to remove the old glue from the removed inlay pieces. Then I used the steam iron again to steam the individual pieces of inlay an pressed them between two pieces of plywood to get them flat again. This worked quite well. Some of the inlay was so bad I had to replace it s...

Art Deco TV Table #2: Modeling for Shape

11-25-2015 02:55 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

Once I had the basic concept sketched out I needed to see the thing in the actual space. The height of the table is important for ease of use, aesthetic proportions, and to provide enough clearance along the sides to reach the chair controls. The angle of the table is important to set the angle of the chairs so they fit in the room. Yes, I actually set the chairs and divined the angle. Also important was the arc of the front of the drawers. So after making many real size 2D drawings I ...

Art Deco TV Table #1: Form Follows Folly

11-22-2015 10:02 PM by newTim | 6 comments »

Or perhaps the title should be, “Form Follows Tragedy”? Here is the initial chapter of the design and construction of a most challenging project. But why would anyone ever want or need to build such a thing? What follows is the documentation of a two year journey into pattern making, wood bending, form construction, curved veneering, trim inlay, creative joinery, jig design, and the ultimate victory of patience and stubbornness over a project that fought me every step of the ...

Splinters of thought #5: Don't get all bent out of shape

10-27-2015 02:02 AM by bearkatwood | 1 comment »

Sometimes in woodworking you need a shape that just won’t work because of short grain issues, stock availability, design concerns etc. It comes to a choice of steam bending or bent lamination. When choosing bent lamination there are some concerns to consider. The First consideration is the form you wish to use to use for the glue-up process. I normally hate MDF with a passion, but for this application it works well. I have used cdx and a/c plywood, solid wood, and phenolic plastic t...

Building For The Wife #8: Quick knot inlay, because the basketballs got bounced

09-26-2015 12:13 AM by fatman51 | 4 comments »

When I was fixing the knot blowouts in yesterday’s project, “Strip veneering kitchen cabinet doors”, I wanted to finish quickly and I made the classic mistake of hurrying. I know better, “fast” should be way lower on a woodworker’s list than quality, and patience. My impatience resulted in these two ugly basketballs. I wanted to keep the knots, but I did two things wrong. I planed where I should have sanded and I did not keep the knots. When I went i...

Building For The Wife #7: Strip veneering kitchen cabinet doors.

09-25-2015 09:48 AM by fatman51 | 6 comments »

I wanted to take a picture of my wife’s new kitchen bureau, spice rack, and utensil hanger so that I colud post the finished work here on my blog. I wanted people to see what I was talking about. When she caught me taking pictures of her kitchen, however, my wife stopped me. She refused to let me post pictures that included the crummy cabinets above the counter. At the very least, she wanted to replace the forty five year old formica veneered cabinet doors. Wanting both to please my...
