This is the section of our website devoted to share different ways
of using wood, and a list of tips and tricks that I have found useful...
actually to be honest it is mostly tips and tricks that my customers
have shared, and I've taken a few moments to post them here for
all to enjoy.
If you have something to share or add, or some recommendation,
take a few minutes out of your day and email me all your ideas.
I'll put them up for all to enjoy..
Intarsia is the art of cutting up little pieces of different coloured
woods and re-assembling them jigsaw puzzle fashion into a shape
or picture. I've added in this section all the info you need to
get started with this form of woodworking.
I must admit I'm no expert in veneering, in fact I was hoping to
take a few classes this fall, but recently found out that the woodworking
school I hoped to attend has closed... but here are a few ideas
that I have come across... this will have to do until another place
of higher education has been sourced.
I do have some absolutely spectacular veneers so this is a "must
have" skill to acquire. If you have ideas on what I could use
this for, then PLEASE send them along. I might even share some of
my stash in exchange for your help.
Pyrography is the art of using a hot pen to burn decorative patterns
or pictures onto a piece of wood. An extensive array of patterns
are available for those that have no drawing skill but love woodburning
as their woodworking passion.
more to be added as time allows.. Karen
