Urn Boxes for the Cats #1: Catching up on progress made

01-10-2019 08:36 PM by BrettLuna | 1 comment »

We have three cats who departed over the last several years that are currently residing in tins provided by the cremation service. My wife asked if I would make urn boxes for them. This project has been on the to-do list for some time but was delayed for an urn box for a dog of the friend of my wife and then another for our own dog. I had been eyeballing the Incra iBox jig for a while and decided to get it and use it for this project. Rather than inter the ashes through bottom of the bo...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #5: Shaping the Legs

02-07-2016 04:03 AM by jeth | 1 comment »

hello all.. Now, having got the parts of the basic structure ready I wanted to get this glued up solid before fitting the parts that form the drawer pocket so I needed to get the legs shaped. Apart from the use of the Cocobolo panels the legs were the only other part I was fairly certain of once I knew this would be a table. I had seen some legs I liked and which seemed like they would fit here. I had a photo of the piece that sported those legs and imported it into sketchup. I used th...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #4: Apron Frame & Front Rail Joinery

02-04-2016 07:51 PM by jeth | 4 comments »

Hello all (echo,o,o,o) several hundred “reads”, no comments, so either you’re all riveted to your seats awaiting the next installment, or that’s several hundred open page, scroll down a bit, go read something more interesting. Not wanting to leave this half way through I shall proceed with the upper aron frames and front rail joinery. The apron panels were to be framed with pieces of leopardwood. Here you can see the top pieces which are grooved to fit onto a rabbe...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #3: Gunstock joints as an afterthought.

02-03-2016 03:23 AM by jeth | 0 comments »

Hello all, just in case anyone is following along I’ll continue here with how I added the gunstock joints to the legs as an afterthought.I had already prepped the leg blanks and cut mortises when I decided (influenced in large part by a nice arts and crafts hall table in a magazine article) that the table would benefit from”flowing” the legs into the apron frames with gunstock joints. This will probably be easier to visualise if I show you the end result, so this is what ...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #2: Apron Panels and a Start to the Legs

02-01-2016 04:12 PM by jeth | 5 comments »

Hello all, things have been deathly quiet on the first installment of this blog, which I started due to interest on the project I posted here. Having started, I should go on, so in this post I’ll show how the remaining veneered panels for the table aprons and the legs came together. Here is the substrate for one of the small side apron panels being planed up, with the thick re-sawn veneer that would be stuck to it. The substrate is a piece of Primavera and I did not back it with a ...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #1: Veneered Panels/Framing the Top

02-01-2016 05:12 AM by jeth | 0 comments »

Hello all, I had a couple of peeps interested in seeing the process shots of the Cocobolo and Leopardwood table with drawer that I posted, so I thought I’ll blog it here split into a few parts so nobody has to scroll through it all in one go… You can see the finished project here. I don’t have a shot of the small Cocobolo board I was given that inspired this table before I started cutting it up but it was a couple of board feet. There was a lovely rich heartwood section d...

Walnut Leopardwood rocking chair #1: My first Rocker from Hal Taylor's plans

11-14-2011 05:55 AM by mbs | 7 comments »

My daughter is pregnant and I though I surprise her with a rocker for her first born. The rocker will be made of leopardwood and walnut. I got 8/4 ash for the laminate forms. I’ll have about 6 hours a week to work on it so it will take most of the winter. I haven’t ever made a rocker so I bought the plans from Hal Taylor and I’m already glad I didn’t try it on my own. Day oneI bought some 1/2” baltic birch for the chair patterns, cut them on the bands...
