September 2014 #1: Some Completed Projects

09-26-2014 12:51 PM by ThumbHammer | 3 comments »

Here are some completed projects that I have been working on in September. As you can see I like to use my laser to enhance projects. Project 1 is done with recycled Redwood. I like to play with what ever I can read in the wood grain as this next image shows. The horse looks like it is splashing water with its foot but that is actually a knot in the wood. This is a typical scene from my neck of the woods. Project 2 is done with Poplar. Project 3 is done with Teak. A...

Amazing Desk ( not mine ) But worth a look

What’s truly amazing is all the secret compartments and buttons to activate them all. It’s not only an engineering marvel, but a work of art. Enjoy! Again, This is not mine. Just wanted to share as were all wood junkies! AMAZING DESK

06-16-2014 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As we begin another week, there is something that I want to mention to you all. For the past couple of weeks, I have taken a day or two off from blogging on the weekend. This isn't because I have had nothing to do or wasn't busy, but rather because I have have been very productive – usually so much so that I have been using my morning time to get a head start on things. This isn't a bad thing. I rather think it is good. I have had several inquiries as to why I am not po...

“The Window Method” Parquetry is a geometrical form of Marquetry.

06-12-2011 01:22 AM by Dennis Zongker | 28 comments »

This Parquetry panel is an insert for a conference table. This is the companies logo, It’s an abstract design of an Eagle. The panel size is 24” wide x 54” long. This was a very fun project, it took me around 32 hours to draw, cut, glue, and stain and finish. I used the “The Window Method” because of the long straight lines and the geometrical shapes. It’s much more accurate this way. If I was to used a scroll saw it would be very hard to keep the lines straight. 1...
