Gluing Veneer To Radius Box Parts, "Made Easy"

08-31-2009 04:48 PM by Dennis Zongker | 31 comments »

Gluing veneer to hardwood can actually be a good thing. As long as the hardwood has the proper moisture content, which is between 6 to 8 percent. Also, the smaller the piece of hardwood the better. Wood only expands and contracts, the width of your board. Also I like to veneer both sides, to balance the hardwood. In the old days when furniture reached a zenith in Europe, between 1700-1900. Most of the highest quality pieces of furniture had veneer glued to the legs & aprons, which were...

11-11-2010 01:17 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

“Necessity is the Mother of Invention” Plato….Ancient Greek Philosopher…(428 BC-348 BC) This short video shows the beauty and simplicity of the Band Saw Rip Fence. The L-shaped fence in the video was made from scrap MDF in 10 minutes and was available for use immediately thereafter. You will notice a protective strip of oak that was glued and pin nailed to the rip side of the fence. This will allow the fence to be used for a long time. The first time you use it y...

Routing Circles #1: Routing inlays

05-13-2011 03:14 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 32 comments »

Hi all; Recently I needed to cut some wenge veneer to inlay into a Demilune table. The table is part of a private veneer course I’m teaching, and will be included in either an e-book, or a printed book. The fellow is writting it as I’m teaching, taking pictures as we go. One of the projects in the book has an wenge inlay. If you’ve ever worked with wenge, you know it’s a bit of a nasty wood to work with. Cutting it with a knife is difficult, as the wood tends to ...

foot powered Scroll saw #1: foot powered Scroll saw #1:

07-16-2009 12:32 AM by Tom8021 | 6 comments »

First off I wanted to do some marquertry but shelling out $400 plus for a slow speed scroll saw was too steep. I tried to find a used one locally, but after a couple of months it wasn’t happening. Then I was going through some old issues of “Woodwork” magazine and found an article on building your own foot powered scroll saw. If you can find it, they are no longer around, it was the October 2006 edition. Anyway the guy who made it was Brian Condran (briancondran@aol.com) and...

Ironing Veneer

05-21-2009 10:57 PM by tenontim | 8 comments »

After many comments and questions about the veneer ironing method, I made some time to do a blog on how I use this technique. The items needed are the same as used in the regular method of veneering; a straight edge, sharp knife (I use a scalpel), veneer tape, sandpaper, glue, distilled water, measuring cup, and a paint brush. Additionally, you’ll need an iron. Pick out your veneer and substrate, I usually use mdf. First, I match up any pieces that I need to make a large enough pi...

VACUUM PRESS BAG STORAGE CONTAINERI recently was inspired to start veneering using the vacuum press by Neil Lamens at Furnitology Productions. If you haven’t had a chance to check out his website and video blog, it is really worthwhile to pay a visit sometime. He is currently finishing a contemporary veneered ash lingerie chest. I have been fascinated by this series. He has really focused on design elements and shop efficiency. His two episodes ( Episode 6 - Part 1 and Episode 6 - Part ...

Desk Build #6: Getting the Ole' Fisheye

09-15-2010 06:42 AM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

. I have this desk all ready to get lacquered and man o’ man how I love the smell of lacquer. I get all ready to start my process and begin to shoot the desk. I do this this way most of the time. I shoot a coat of lacquer sealer let it rest an hour or so and then sand with 600 grit paper. I then start my top coat, I do this step pretty much the same as the sealer. When I go back to check my work about 1/2 hour later the top has all of these bubbles in it. What the @#*^ is this??? ...
