Classical miror gilding #2: Clay and gilding

05-25-2013 06:30 PM by Patricelejeune | 5 comments »

Couple weeks ago I have been making some progress on the frame. I did the clay on the part that will be water gilded, red everywhere except on the columns which were ocre. I also started the gilding with 23K gold until I run out of gold. I received it recently and will soon carry on the gilding. I will try to do videos to show the process, especially for the balls which have a nice neat trick. The balls also receive yellow then red

Classical miror gilding #1: Starting over

05-25-2013 06:24 PM by Patricelejeune | 1 comment »

Patrick has a miror in stock, real nice, with the original glass. A guy thought he will strip it and then left it for dead. Patrick bought it and now it is on my gilding table. As it was already half-stripped nothing could be saved, it was time to start over. The miror has classic elements on compo (composite elements), molded decoration elements. Those parts are traditionaly oil gilded in brass, and the rest is water gilded. It gives a contrast mat (oil gilding) and shiny (water...

Hand Toolcentric #1: My New Stanley/Bailey No. 5-1/2 Corrugated Type 11 Jack Plane

Here are some pics of my new Stanley/Bailey No. 5-1/2 Corrugated Type 11 Jack Plane. It has not got here yet but I still can’t wait to show it off. I decided to get this exact model after reading The Anarchist’s Tool Chest by Christopher Schwarz. You can check out The Anarchist's Jack Plane - here . Mine doesn’t have any fancy engraving. just a nice light patina, but I am tempted to give it some bling (maybe golden enamel). The Type 11 models were made between 1910 &...

Osage Orange Journey #1: In the beginning...

04-16-2010 06:31 AM by woodchips | 10 comments »

Hello fellow LJ’s, i just wanted to share this amazing find with ya’ll since we all (more or less) share the same love of wood. A rancher pushed over this enormous bois d’arc tree to make way for a fence (of all things) anyway he gave a buddy and me free range to cut as much of it as we wanted to. I was overjoyed and so far this is all I’ve gotten to the sawmill but there is much more to come. one of the huge benefits to living in deep east Texas is there are saw...

4th (Final) Update on the St. Anthony Hymn Number Board

08-04-2007 01:38 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 10 comments »

This week, I’ve been finishing up the Hymn Number Board for the St. Anthony Catholic church in Strong City, KS. Final assembly, glue, number plate holders, stain, finish, and gold-powder painting, and it is all finished now, ready for delivery to the church on Saturday. This is my Original Design, and it looks nothing like anything I have seen before, although it has design elements of things I have built in the past. I built it to match the other furnishings of the St. Anthony chu...
