OK, you have been asking. What I’ve been up to on the Thorsen G & G tables.
So here are some misc pictures. Of the Holly Thorsen Greene and Greene Table.
This is the boards that I was using to select the wood for the table.
The table top boards
The legs before the mortise cuts
The legs with the pegs in place but not finished to a crown.
The shelf support brackets with the mortise slots cut and the peg holes cut.
Cutting the mortises with a square corner on the new Mortise machine. The woodhaven mortise machine uses a routerbit and leaves rounded ends. So I’m trying to square them up with the mortise machine. It was very fast and easy.
The table held together with friction. It was dryfitted in order to measure the shelf length.
The table has some of the pegs placed , but more to go. I’m using Pink Ivory for the pegs and they are being glued in with epoxy. On an earlier blog Scott called the Holly table an Albino. I had already visualized the Pink Ivory pegs. So that was not a surprise.
