Jewelry Case Build #10: Installing Doors, Final Sanding, Applying Finish

28 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I’m so close to finishing this little project. I looked back at the date on the beginning of this blog series and it’s nearly 70 days ago! Today I fussed with the little doors, getting them aligned as best as I can. There must be some trick to this that I’m missing, if anyone knows, please let me know! I had applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil a while ago so once the assembly was complete, I sanded everything to 360 grit. The fine sanding dust mixed with the BLO m...

Jewelry Case Build #9: Assembly and Hinges

32 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

Today I began assembly. Everything went really well. One small error I had to fix, Once the glue was dry, I noticed the little drawers were slightly proud of the side panel. This would prevent the door from closing. I just took out each drawer and sanded a bit off the face. They fit fine now. I had to chisel out eight tiny hinge mortises. I’ve also never done those before. They turned out quite nice. I only have to do a final fit on the doors and screw them into place then ...

Boston Red Sox Marquetry Hanging #1: Design, and first night's progress

33 days ago by jmartel | 3 comments »

After seeing a few of my other veneer works, I was approached to make a Red Sox wall hanging for someone to give as a gift. Seeing as how I am still looking for more experience on this marquetry kick I’m on, I decided to go for it. Now, I’m not a fan of Baseball period, so don’t let this logo make you think I’m a Red Sox fan. We decided on a rather large size of 24”x24” overall, which will be more beneficial to me for the small pieces that needed cutting...

Jewelry Case Build #8: Glass and Mirrors

33 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

Among the new skills I’ve learned in this project, I learned the basics behind cutting glass. This project has two glass panel doors, one glass panel side and two mirrors, set into frames. To my surprise and delight, cutting glass is really quite easy. I won’t go into that detail here but suffice to say if you are thinking about cutting your own glass, do it! Once I cut all the glass and mirrors, I epoxied them into the frames. The mirrors were easy as the backs aren’...

Jewelry Case Build #7: Tiny Drawers and BLO to Finish

35 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

I wasn’t intending to start applying finish just yet but once I started with the Boiled Linseed Oil, I couldn’t stop. The Walnut just came alive in that beautiful rich tone that I just love. I had been assembling the small drawers and I needed to glue the walnut fronts to the maple drawer boxes. I knew I needed to apply finish to the maple before installing the fronts otherwise getting any finish in there would be almost impossible. I went ahead and applied BLO to the little d...
