  1. Toscana, A hand dyed marquetry study

    "Toscana" is a hand dyed marquetry plaque mounted on 3/8" MDF. I made it at the request of my good' wife for a decorative accent to go on our new granite / tile cabinet upgrade. The substrate is cut precisely to the outline of the picture and dyed black on the edge. The marquetry is all cut...
  2. Hollow Form - Vase

    This is a hollow form turned from an as-yet-to-be-identified species. It is about 7 1/2" tall and a little over 7 1/2" in diameter. The color is all artificial … KEDA alcohol-based aniline dyes. I mixed clear shellac into the dye (about 1 part shellac for 15 parts dye), applied the color...
  3. Walnut tray - first experiment with analine dye

    I needed a simple tray to store some bottles in, and I wanted to try some practice using analine dyes - here's the result! The colored part is baltic birch plywood, dyed with a coat of black then a few coats of blue - sanded between each coat. I was told later by a true master of the art that...
  4. My First Pipe (Briarwood)

    This is my first pipe. I ordered a pre-drilled pipe kit from Mark Tinsky and started out with nothing but files to start my project. I learned quickly that long hours and carpel tunnel were in my future, so I opted to borrow a Dremel 200 from a friend. You'll notice the jump from the first to...
  5. side table

    The shape of the legs of this table is inspired by the vintage Louis 14th style and the top is made from Rosewood. I made a template from 4mm trespa that I used to route the shape of the legs from MDF that I first cut out with the bandsaw. I chose painted MFD for the legs i.s.o wood because of...
  6. "Facets" , Exploring a Dyeing Art

    "Facets" is the third and probably last for now of my "Out of the Box on Stand" series. All of these have been veneered MDF boxes variously exploring the ideas of grain matching, wooden hinges, marquetry, dye techniques and innovative legs. "Facets" further explores the marquetry and...
  7. Dyed Wood Turnings

    These are my first attempts at using wood dyes using methods similar to those of Trifern and Jimmy Clewes. Both the box and the vase are made from Kentucky Coffee Tree, a wood I am really starting to like. The box uses two colors: red and yellow. The vase uses three colors: red, orange and...

    I'm trying to dye Leopardwood entirely, totally black. I'm currently using Arm-R-Seal's water-based Ebony dye stain (two coats), but the pinkish/reddish hue still is coming through (a little). Any suggestions for how to make it truly, truly black (short of painting it)? Do I have to put a...

    General Concept This is the blog that I promised detailing my experiments in what I call "watercolor style" aniline dying. My sincere hope is that it will encourage some of you to jump in and help develop what I think is a huge potential of which I've only scratched the surface. The idea of...

    Playing with Parchment A few months ago my buddy Gene (vipond33) posted a superb desk featuring parchment and ebony. He had some parchment scraps left over and he sent them on to me, thinking I might be able to use them for something. .... Thanks Gene! He gave me some general instructions for...
  11. Finishing
    I recently put up a new cedar picket fence for my dad. I plan on using some of the left over cedar pickets and making his favorite college team's logo out of it to mount on the fence. I had considered dyeing the logo the teams color and was wanting input. How well will it weather? What to use...
