  1. Ribbon & Bow Box

    It has been a long time since I've posted a project but I have been doing a lot of woodworking. And along with good friend and woodworking buddy Ellen 35, we put our handiwork in 5 craft fairs last year. This project represents some new work and new twists on a past project… Thanks to the...
  2. 3 Keepsake/Jewellery Boxes

    Well I think it's about time to make a post - I've been admiring those of fellow LJs for years. These were created as gifts for our son and sons in law. There many firsts; not the least was this represented my first attempt at making a box. Book matching, making inlay banding, installing...
  3. Gift box for a bottle of wine

    I planned (still do, but I'm now officially late) to give a friend a bottle of wine for Christmas. I wanted to make a nice box to hold the wine, and this is the result. It's a birch box, with mitered corners, reinforced by cherry splines, with a cherry top and bottom. The top is a sliding top...
  4. Arts and Crafts Magazine Rack with French Inlay Banding

    I made this Arts and Crafts magazine rack as a gift to my wife's Psychoanalysis Mom (whatever exactly that means) who also was kind enough to pay for our wedding reception in Taiwan 10 years ago. Since Psychoanalysis Mom lives in Taiwan, I figured it would go back to Taiwan in a carry-on. As...
  5. small company employee gift project

    Commission from a local small business for 6 keep-sake letter sized boxes in six different woods. Matching inlay banding on bevel topped shop-sawn veneer tops. Satisfying job, making one-of-a-king objects at an affordable price for the client. Cherry, birds-eye maple, walnut, curly soft maple...
  6. New Inlay Banding

    I made a new inlay banding for the small boxes that I build. It's made of Cherry,Maple and Walnut. The finished inlay is 3/64" thick by 1/2" wide. It needs some some adjustments but I am happy for my first try. Keith
  7. Veneer & inlay coffee table

    I thought it would never get there, but the 373 piece table is finally together and finished. You can find a couple LJ blogs about the inlay banding and I would be happy to share how I did it and what Iused to do anything else. I was lucky to find this beatiful cherry veneer on ebay and I am...

    Some firsts for me here. I was inspired by Tom Adamski's work, great stuff. First time veneering and marquetry The lids are 1/2" MDF, the undersides are beech, topsides are beech for the one with the Fleur-de-lis marquetry and the other is lacewood. First time making and using banding The...
  10. Picture Frames with Inlay Banding

    Here are examples of the picture frames with inlay banding that I made for Christmas. I saw a tutorial on Youtube on how to do the white x's (second pic), and figured I could use a similar approach to execute the first "twist" pattern. The frames pictured are actually the ones I kept for us...
  11. Walnut AV Rack

    This was a fun project, unlike the low voltage wiring work that accompanied it. I have my PC, AV Receiver, and UPS inside. The best part is the monitor arm. I am seeing some issues with the inlay banding buckling upward in spots. Most likely due to the heat inside the rack. I have some fans...
  12. Mid-Century Modern Walnut Credenza with Buffard Freres Banding

    Just finished this large walnut credenza. The original plan was that this was going to be a shared project with a younger friend-we were going to make duplicates-but he picked a design that I didn't particularly want in my own house. I'll post that when he gets it finished. I made the doors...

    That was the mistake! - Inlay Banding I am finally working on this project again and ran into another problem. You can find out how I got this far from blogs I posted earlier. Last time I showed how I set up guides to cutting the inlay banding grooves. I eventually got all the inlay banding...
  17. Hand Tools
    Hi all, I am building a few planes for the hand plane swap. I plan to make two smoothers-one for myself and one for the swap. I have a few questions that I thought I would throw out to the group for their collective input: 1) I am using of one of Rhett's 1 1/2 inch blades without a chip...
  18. Finishing
    I finished some maple toys with mineral oil and really liked the neutral non yellowing look and smooth feel. I was wondering how it might work as a finish for something like a bookcase that won't see a whole lot of abuse. I also like that it's so easily repaired. Obviously it doesn't provide a...
