  1. Just a Plane Box for the Shop

    This is my first real hand tool project. I did use a table saw to rough size the stock and to cut the hinge groove but other than that not much noise was made. I rather liked the experience. When I decided to try hand tools I built some wooden planes and they became the purpose for this "box...
  2. Family Portraits ..... or Cutting My Wife's Hair with the Chevalet

    One of the things that Patrick Edwards has always done in the level one course at ASFM is to have the students do a self portrait. The school keeps one copy and gets to have a visual record of all the past students. I really like that part and plan to incorporate it into my new level one course...
  3. Marquetry Treasure Box series II

    Patrick Edwards and I started this project 2 years ago after completing our first series of 4 treasure Box. The series II was inspired by an antique from an auction house We created a new design and concept using the original layout that we really liked. For our creations a...
  4. Video - Assembling Marquetry on an assembly board

    I did this video on putting together a piece by piece marquetry on an assembly board, trying to answer the usual questions Hope it helps! Paul did a similar video we just found enjoy to
  5. Workbench chevalet

    I started building a chevalet. I want to thank Paul (aka shipwright) and Mike for their help. Downloaded the Sketch up drawing made by Paul. I don't have adequate place for a stand alone chevalet so I builded one out of two pieces. This two pieces I can mount on/too my workbench. I don't have...
  6. Shop Art Swap, monochrome marquetry desk organizer

    This was my entry in the recent "Shop Art" swap. It went to RichCMD who as luck would have it already has a maritime theme to his place…... how lucky is that. My first attempt at monochrome was this same ship albeit smaller on the chart boxes that I posted a couple of years ago. I liked it but...
  7. .0234375 Board Foot Challenge.

    OK, first off … Gene wins! However upon looking at the small number entries I thought I should see if I could add to the number a bit, just for fun and in the spirit of participation. This is a study I did recently experimenting with dying and marquetry. I think it fits the spirit of the...
  8. Everyman's Chevalet, Simple, Inexpensive, and Elegant

    This project developed from a desire on my part to make the chevalet more accessible to my students. There isn't much point in learning French marquetry if you don't have the tools to continue when you leave class. To this end I designed this one to be well within the abilities of an average...
  9. Paire of Marquetry Pembroke Table #2

    In 2009 Patrick Edwards and I were commissioned to adapt and recreate a table kept ath the Victoria and Albert Museum. Our clients liked the top but not the base of the original, staying true to the period designs we created a different base. On that project Patrick Edwards did the top...
  10. "Music"

    Music is a little French style table of my own design that has taken me about half as long to build as my sailboat did. In Marie Antoinette's day it would have been called a writing table and I would like to think she may have been amused by it. The design started as an idea for a leg that I...
  11. Kokopelli Tray

    I made this Kokopelli themed marquetry tray a couple of months ago as a housewarming gift for my sister who moved in to a new house in Arizona. It measures approx 16×20x2. For those that are wondering: Known as a fertility god, prankster, healer and story teller, Kokopelli has been a source of...
  12. What To Do With That Sheet of 3/4" Plywood

    Obviously the project isn't actually finished but the one sheet of plywood part just about is. I'm trying to design a dead easy to build chevalet for my students, one that doesn't require sophisticated joinery. So far I'm really impressed with how crisp the lines are on this little guy and how...
  13. One Chevalet Please .... To Go ...

    This is the first kit sold of my plywood version chevalet. It is going to a couple in California who both want to use it so the 3" adjustability will be fully used. The thing that makes this interesting is the shipping mode. The purchasers are currently on an Alaska cruise and will be stopping...
  14. Boulle Clock Restoration

    18 months ago we started to work on a Boulle clock restoration for a gentleman back east. We received the clock piece by piece, starting with the top to show the process and what we could do to our client. First thing was bronzes removal The lose brass elements where lifted and then, the...
  15. Flag Humidor

    A custom humidor with the 31st Virginia Infantry battle flag. Marquetry was cut using a chevalet, all in 1/16" thick veneer.
  16. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I'm on a distribution list for this auction house since it's so close to me (just north of Asheville NC), and I wanted to share the info I got in case anyone in East TN or Western NC wanted to go. I believe they have absentee & phone bids, but tough to bid without seeing the items/lots in...
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hi everyone, I'm just getting started building a table for my house, and found this design that my wife likes. The project overview can be found here. Since this will be my first real woodworking project, I'd like to keep the material costs relatively low. I will be using red oak for the table...

    How hard can it be? Update: See also Chevy II, The Canadian Cousin. and Building Some Chevalets, a Class Action I first saw a chevalet in Sorrento, Italy about ten or eleven years ago. I was very impressed with the machine and the work being done by the master marqueters there but never...

    Double Bevel or Conical Style When I posted the clipper ship marquetry for my Canadian chevalet, there was some confusion about the different styles of cutting marquetry and the terminology conected thereto. I will try here, using examples from some of my work, to clear up the confusion. First...
  20. Blogs
    Garry Oak Slabs to Basic Framework I've already blogged my AZ chevalet so this will be a simple "keep you up to date" one about "Chevy II". When I moved to my current address and built my shop I was fortunate enough to run into a fellow who was moving and had to sell his hoard of local...
