Mini-Roubo from Oz #4: My first workbench build- recycling offcuts for inlay

07-31-2019 12:00 PM by siggykc | 4 comments »

Gday-gday, I hope its warm and sunny for you all – a start contrast to the cold wet mornings in Melbourne as of recent! Due to the weather one evening after work, I was stuck at home with my small garage that is setup for some small metalworking jobs. Bored, I racked my brain for things to do. As you readers of this blog will know, the last thing I posted on was the leg vise, which is made predominantly out of quilted (big leaf?) maple.The bloke that sold me that quilted maple ...

Alaska Cabin #3: The Live Edge Counter

02-06-2019 02:51 AM by Matt Snyder | 0 comments »

When I moved in to the small 13’ x 15’ dry cabin on the fire base in McGrath, AK it was nicer than most of the primitive cabins on base. Some of the walls had rough cut white spruce panels and there was a little hand made furniture from previous crafty resident firefighters. In the kitchen area the counter was a white painted piece of plywood braced to the wall with a simple cabinet underneath. I figured I could do better and thus began my first major woodworking project that started m...

Treasure Box III - Post #4: Cutting Marquetry

09-29-2018 01:55 AM by Patricelejeune | 9 comments »

So with a bit of tardiness here is an “account” on cutting the marquetry panels our Treasure Box III As you know, I now do my marquetry in LA with a reduced but sweet set up. On a piece by piece project the drawing is paramount to the final quality of your marquetry. No change can be made afterwards so I usually work my drawing until Patrick and Kristen pry me away from it. Once this first stage is complete. We usualy have a good idea of what wood will be used where b...

Prairie Style Mosaics #2: Cut, Glue, Assemble, Repeat

05-27-2018 02:49 PM by EarlS | 5 comments »

Most of the previous entry talked about the process mechanics (cutting, gluing, and clamping). This is a picture of the essential tools for this part of the project: The initial blocks start out with only a few strips of wood with spacers between them and they look pretty rough. However, as the blocks are completed and glued to other blocks, the design starts to come together. Initial strips of bocote and bubinga with walnut spacers. Stacking them together and adding the ka...

Remember TB I & TB II ? Here is TB III Well. As you can see it is not quite finished yet. But we have been really busy at the shop working on other project that I did not even take the time to post… But here we are, back on track. Drawing is almost done, the 2 sides are finished and ready to be cut, top and front need to be verified and the back needs a bit more massaging, but it’s there. We have taken this opportunity to clean up the veneer cellar with...

How to build a Live Edge Floating Shelf with Hand Cut Bow Tie Inlays

01-13-2018 08:06 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

For this project I take a walnut slab that has a rotten end, a ugly squared off chainsaw cut and a few large cracks, and sculpt it with some power carving, and and cut some bowtie inlays to turn it into a live edge floating shelf. I think it is some of the cooler woodworking art I have don in awhile Read about how I created it below or watch it be built A list of specialty tools I used in this build can be found on my personal blog A Recount of the Video So I had this slab of ...

laying out Steve Latta's lotus flower

04-19-2017 06:59 PM by StLouisWoodworker | 2 comments »

I wrote a short note based on my experience in trying to make Steve Latta’s lotus flower as a string inlay project. In the note, I discuss one of the first steps in the project—locating 10 equally spaced points on a circle where the tips of the leaves are to be placed. The note can be read by clicking here.
