Will dust off the router and give a try for a lounge side table. Hope the router works on log eng ends for hard old timber? Level surface to start with would be a good start. To get the final end of the third rail parallel you could use an additional straight edge as the second stick in a set of "Winding sticks". Great tip! Reply 3 years ago.
Ooh, that's a tricky one. Waiting for a log to dry out properly can take years, and unless you seal the ends really well, the log will crack quite a bit. On the other hand, cut slices from a green log will dry out quicker but will likely cup and warp and still crack. That's not a very good answer I guess, but more of a heads-up as to what to expect. My thought would be to start with a very old and dry log in the first place, if you can find one. I'm assuming that the table is a level surface. If so, you could position the guide rails by adding "legs"on each side. Make two equal length legs and attach them to the guide.
Make another exactly the same. Then shim the log until it's vertically level or whatever you're wanting. When you attach each, both will be the same height and level exactly. Then use the same method you demonstrate. Wish I had a workshop to make stuff by hand.
To Make as Perfectly as Possible: Roubo on Marquetry
I've tried to do this "by eye," using a power planer, but never got things really flat. I will have to think how to adapt this to a planer instead of a router. It would make a smoother surface and be much quicker. I would say Ash, based on the insect damage. The Emerald Ash Boarer larva leaves tracks like that, the damage to the living part of the tree is what ultimately kills the tree.
I wondered if it might be ash. Here's a shot of the log before I peeled off the bark. Perhaps that will help more positively ID it.
Definitely not ash bark good try though. I'm still sticking with maple, I've seen maple with nearly identical insect damage. My first choice would be to use a band saw with a sled. If the log is too big or unwieldy or the band saw is too small. Really like the product. Thinking something with carriage bolts, washers and wing nuts and maybe a few more routed slots.

For most log projects you could probably just use a chainsaw and get the ends close enough. Add Teacher Note. Once you have it where you want it, be careful not to move it at all. This log I'm using is several years old, bone-dry and rock-hard. Not sure of the species. The first rail is attached to the log with screws. Now you need to attach the second rail. When it is level, make sure those clamps are on there good and tight. When the top of the log is perfectly flat you can remove the guide rails.
I used a flush-cutting pull-saw to remove the remaining bits of wood on the sides. Now you simply flip the log over, and repeat steps 3 though 6. Then route away! There is always a lot of sawdust and wood chips to clean up, but it's worth it! Did you make this project?

If you have never even contemplated doing marquetry this book will inspire you and explain how those museum furniture pieces that make us so jealous were made. In all cases the additional content on materials, tools, and basic technique will be eye-opening. For example, in addition to veneering and marquetry there are sections on grinding, sharpening, wood selection, finishing, staining, a German workbench, clock-case construction, engraving and casting brass hardware.
