Curved Front End Table #3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up

03-26-2016 12:29 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Plywood Chevalet #3: Hammer Veneering .... Won't be long now.

07-13-2016 04:47 AM by shipwright | 18 comments »

The plywood version of my chevalet design is officially a success. It cuts really nicely, is solid as a rock, and can be put together considerably more economically than a solid wood model and with less woodworking experience. ...... but it looks like plywood. :-( Well it did until today anyway. The new owner of the prototype ( one of my recent students, Kendra) came over today and made a very good start on hammer veneering it with some pretty 1/16” mahogany. She hadn’t done a...

Balanced Work Bench #1: Building a Semi-Classic workbench without taking a 2nd out on your house

07-16-2013 05:32 PM by Jeremiah | 2 comments »

Here goes…. Traditional work benches (roubo for example) are out dated. I know, heresy. But it’s true The reason they made those crazy over sized legs and joints was because they didnt have sheetgoods back then and they needed to over build them to deal with the lateral and horizontal force they experienced. It is my opinion that pine 2×6’s and 3/4 ply MORE than cover any of the structural needs of a work bench. So the next big argument FOR traditional w...

Well it has been a anxious and emotional week for me and not much got done on the table but such is life.This week I played around of and on with some yellow glue and some 1/8” walnut veneer ,I rolled on glue on both surfaces (three different types seen in the pic ) and let the samples dry until clear and layed it on the plywood , put a hot iron on the veneer and heated the glue until it bonded and followed with a piece of wood to rub it flat .The result was a nice strong bond and tryin...

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #8: Marquetry, Trees & Reflection

06-02-2015 02:23 PM by Dennis Zongker | 23 comments »

This larger marquetry has been quite the challenge. I’ve been pushing really hard to make the delivery date, it looks like I’m still going to be a week or two longer than expected. The next steps are bending the solid ebony inlays, then routing & inlaying them into the top. Then bending and gluing on the solid mahogany top edges, Then I’m off to the finishing booth. I haven’t had any spare time to hang out on LJ’s which I still love to do. Thank you for...

Hi Everyone, Apparently the dining room table came up in the rotation, because a few comments were made yesterday. Instead of adding a blog regarding it’s construction, I’ll just post this link to my website, which covers the details in depth. Part one http://www.prowoodworkingtips.com/Build_A_Dining_Room_Table.html There are three parts, which are linked at the bottom of the page. I hope you enjoy it. Lee

Creating Bandings for Inlay #2: A Video of the process

07-01-2010 12:35 AM by Bob Simmons | 0 comments »

If you’re like me you’ve probably looked in various woodworking magazines over time and have read articles on applying wood inlay. Sometimes the inlay can be rather simple and yet it becomes a nice accent. Other times the inlay can be somewhat complex and it can really grab your attention. I suppose that’s why inlay has been around for thousands of years. For example, the Egyptians, Chinese, Persians, and other cultures used inlay millenniums ago to embellish their works ...

BOULLE MARQUETRY WITH BRASS, PEWTER AND FAUX TORTOISE SHELL - a beginners approach #3: Preparing the marquetry panels for gluing down, and sanding the panels ready for engraving.

04-14-2017 12:59 PM by madburg | 4 comments »

Probably the best of the color combinations. A Premier Partie with a back ground of black and faux tortoise shell. PREPARING THE MAREQUETRY PANELS FOR GLUING ONTO THE SUBSTRATE I had already decide to use epoxy glue for my assembly – but more on this later ………. With the marquetry ‘jigsaws’ assembled on the gummed paper I used a black pigmented epoxy to fill the visible saw kerfs in the design. Traditionally, crushed charcoal mixed with shellac was used. I applied my pigmented epo...

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...
