So I posted blog 1 and it was asked that I show the table that brought me to the realization that my skills are not where I thought they were. So I figured I’d just show all the major pieces I’ve done so far. There are a few others that I made for others or they aren’t displayed in the house and I don’t have pictures of, but here are the important ones in my eyes.
This was the first major project I did. Kind of a big undertaking for my skill set, but it’s still standing 7 years later. The top is poplar stained with walnut and lacquer finish.
Second big one. It’s pine frames with ply sides stained walnut with a wipe on poly finish. I didn’t have stile and rail bits for my router yet so I used a slot cutter and made tongue and groove for the doors.
This is my favorite so far, but I’m really going to have to redo it. I think it’s about to fall apart. Pine with granite tile inserts stained red mahogany with a lacquer finish. It’s doweled and glued and screwed and nailed and I think the next time a dog runs into it’s going to fall over.
This is the table in question on my first blog. None of the boards are even I sanded it and made dips and humps and all the joints are so loose that when you spill on the top it leaks down to the floor. However, I do love the base for this and think that you could have a dance party on top of it.
More later on the teasers from post one, but thought these pictures were relevant to the blog.
Catch ya later,
