  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I’ve got a project where I’d like to do a bunch (dozens) of small rosettes in the surface of a board. I can carve them by hand, but given how many I need to do, and having seen the large rosette router bits in the latest Infinity Tools catalog, my brain started working… I was wondering if...
  2. Rosette Headboard | Rub Through Finish Bed | Custom

    This is a bed that was designed by a customer. They basically told me they wanted drawers, a panel headboard with rosettes on the corners in black. I suggested using the oak wood for texture and using a red undercoated instead of black for the base. This allow me to rub through the finish and...
  3. King Excalibur Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is a king size murphy bed that was completed in June 2009. It is my Excalibur style which are two doors and a couple drawer with fluting down the side. I was concerned with the doors. With the arch there is only so wide you can go, so I had to have the rails and style extended. I didn't...
  4. Rosette Installation Cutter

    Store bought jigs for cutting sound holes and routing rosette channels can cost from $100 to $200. There are circle cutting jigs for a lot less, but they lack a means for precise adjustment. The jig here was made after studying several commercial designs. Metal bushings were used to minimize...

  7. Kalimba / thumb piano

    Here are pics of the latest project I made. It's a kalimba or thumb piano. I made it out of flamed maple. The rosette is a broach I found at goodwill and cut the clasp off the back. I installed a simple piezo pickup with volume and tone making it electric. I went to the local music shop and got...
  8. Coasters made of wooden trim Rosettes

    My L/J friend Charles sent me a rather substantial pile of rosettes that he made for me in his mill work shop. I post this simple little project thinking that if you have some rosettes left over from previous projects that you might want to make some rosette coasters for you wife/significant...
  9. Horizontal Murphy Bed | Excalibur

    This murphy wall bed is a horizontal version of my Excalibur Murphy bed with a bookcase added to the top. The customer wanted a bookcase and I was planning on doing just a simple one that sit on top. After getting into the project I decided to extend the fluting all the way and keep the doors...

    Taking Inventory Long, long ago I used to make guitars. Forty years later I'm thinking, can I still to it? I break out the stuff I put into storage in my early twenties and see what I still have to work with getting ready for a winter pandemic, "one more guitar", build. This video is the story...

    I Made a Batch of Rosettes Today Every now and then I have to make a small batch of rosettes in the machine shop. I normally don't do this on this Bridgeport because I don't want the dust to get on the mill. However, I did today because I had to do a little work on the small mill. We have a...
