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

27 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

27 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

29 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...

Holly's Jasper #22: Holly's Jasper #22

31 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 2 comments »

Back to the big dog! Vertical jig mount (I made this jig to do the same area on my daughter Ravrn’s horse), the piece is so heavy I braced it, this also prevents any vibration even when I am whacking away with the #9, 1” gouge and the 18 oz. mallet. Now, just the fur at the base of the throat, blending the top and bottom lips and sanding will finish this section (sanding will be done when the rest is carved). When I come back again from the Green man, I wil...

Jewelry Case Build #6: Tiny Drawers, Tiny Rabbets, Tiny Dados!

33 days ago by RoadHogg | 1 comment »

Continuing with the tiny drawers, of which there are six, I constructed a little “cabinet” for them to sit in. They basically just sit on little shelves, negating the need for slides etc, which in this case, are not at all practical due to the size of this case. Nothing rocket science here, just fiddling with 12 little drawer fronts/backs and 12 little drawer sides. All 24 pieces got a small rabbet in the bottom edge and the sides each got rabbets in the ends where they will m...

Jewelry Case Build #5: Top and Base and Trim

35 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

In between working on a larger project, I’ve been fitting in a few minutes (hours) to fiddle with this jewelry case. Today I cut the top and bottom to size, ran rabets and dados, milled some trim on my router table and mitered the trim to fit. This included making up a simple miter jig for the table saw. Once complete, the jig is an excellent way to get perfect miters every time. It’ll come in handy when making picture frames etc too. To make the stopped dados in the top an...

Jewelry Case Build #4: Glass Cutting

35 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

I decided to not send the little panels to the glass shop to have glass cut and I’m really glad I made that choice. Instead, I bought a $8.00 glass cutting tool and cut the glass I need from some broken window glass that was laying in the back yard. Basic glass cutting is really easy so if you haven’t tried it, you really should. I learned everything I needed from youtube. So, not much to show and tell, just, I cut the glass and installed it in the little frames…well, I ...

found wood

37 days ago by NaptownWood | 0 comments »

Why is it that when I see a tree being cut down, and I stop for a piece or two or three to turn on the lathe, when I get into a really nice, drier, figured interesting piece, I only grabbed one chunk, and when its wet as can be, boring, stinky, and hard to make viable, I have taken a half truckload?
