  1. Mr B. Console table jobs

    In 2006 Patrick Edwards and I had a commission to build a copy of a Quervelle Console table. The client could not choose between a copy of the one he already owned and one at the Dallas museum, so we decided to build both to give him a choice. He finally took both of them. 6 years later we...
  2. Who said MDF has to be ugly?

    Thanks to Paul (Shipwright), I recently became interested in hammer veneering (traditional; using a veneer hammer and hot hide glue) and wanted to practice.

    I sold my vacuum veneer press before this one last project came in (sigh) I have a pair of 18×24" serpentine doors that I need to re veneer with birdseye maple. I had a friend who swore by hammer veneering so I thought I'd give it a try. I dug 25 year old Hold-Heet Glue pot. My sample non...

    Perfect Splined Mitre Joints in Five Minutes Without Clamps When I posted "Arnie's Tea Box" http://lumberjocks.com/projects/50187 one of the comments (Roger) was that these boxes make a great venue for displaying my marquetry. I totally agree but that meant streamlining the process of making...

    Simple Hammer Veneered box Part 1 - getting started Hammer veneering is something I played with recently and enjoyed.
