    • Small wood pieces help!
      By Barron · Posted
      I can't say for sure, but I think the squares are thin veneer glued to plywood or mdf, or even solid wood.  The dark wood trim hides the plywood/veneer edges.  At least that is how I would go.

      Hello! I am planning on making a 16"w x 8"h x 8"d chest for my fiance as a cute little gift. I am trying to give it an "8bit" look, with having different colors throughout the chest. I will attach a photo of what someone has done in the past. Basically these little tiles will make up the faces of the chest, then just have a border going on each side. How would I go about making these "tiles"? I have measured them to be 1/2" width and height, but the depth might need to be 1/2" or even 1/4". Is that too thin to cut without losing the quality of the shape cut? Let me know if I am not making any sense!  Thanks!

      Sounds like your trying to absorb the price of walnut for your customers. If they want a premium hardwood than you need to charge them premium prices. By buying commons to try and save money you are actually producing more waste and taking more time to figure out all your cuts.

      If only it were that easy. Unfortunately, if i go to FAS walnut, that means my prices need to go up 50-60%, YIKES. Given that 60-70% of my work is in walnut, I depend on it being semi-affordable. Trust me, I love when people order cherry or maple, and I can go pull a 120" board off my rack that is clear from start to beginning. I can basically fall asleep throughout the milling process and the end product looks sweet. Not so easy with walnut. You see some of my stock. It requires some serious thinking and creativity to make money out of those boards. So far so good, but its a lot more effort on my end. Is 1com crap? Sometimes, but sometimes not. Gotta make lemonade out of lemons sometimes. I just wish those lemons were cheaper.
