No electrons were harmed during the building of this table. This was great fun and even more affirmation of the time I spent building my workbench. Enjoy the video.
This build is part of my participation in The Wood Whisperer Guild build project. We are building these tables in the fight against cancer. Many of my fellows are donating or selling them with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society and our guild master Marc Spagnuolo is donating $5 for every completed table. Personally I will be giving this table to a good friend who lost her daughter to cancer recently. I hope you enjoy!
Some pictures of the tail – I’ll be working with the students today, so I will post some new pics we finish up. We are Car 170 in the Houston Art Parade this year.
I am embarking on my first piece of actual furniture. It is going to be a bed, which I am making for myself. I saw something I really liked and inspected it thoroughly.. then drew up a design. This is what the rough design looks like. I would really appreciate some input. The foot/head is 24” tall and the sides are 12”. I may knock the sides down a bit, I’m not sure. I have some 2×6 so it may end up being 11”... What I am going to do for the head/f...
How about this. We have a cherry top table that is about 37”W x 77”L. One solid piece.It was cut into three years ago to make a drop leaf table. Now I’m going to make it into a solid top again.Now I have some old hinges to use on other projects. I was able to get thick, farm table legs, and will create a new apron out of pallet wood i’ve found.Will post a pic once the table is complete.
Well I often feel guilty about not getting back to write more about working in the can. But the truth is I have a busy life and sometimes, I just let it slip by because there is just not enough time in the day. I spent the last two weeks battling a virus on the home computer, which was not detected by my McAfee software even though I pay them a yearly subscription fee to protect 3 computers on my network. I won’t go into details, but after 6 scans by Malwarebytes, and several Microso...
What’s happening in the shop for April 28, 2010. Building the Captain’s bed for Fluitt. Cutting out the parts for Petersen’s Qtr. Sawn murphy bed. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
To all of the guys who posted advice that I asked for – thank you! For now, I think it will be worth the $25 to tide me over for now. I’m going to pick it up probably in the next couple of days. Now I need to find something fun to make with it! :) -Silas
I wanted to make my two young nieces (under 5) a present for Christmas. Their mother suggested a blanket/toy box with the following specifications. Size 800mm wide, 400 deep, and 500 high. No sharp corners. A slow close mechanism for fingers. And it should be able to be used as a seat. More pictures.
So this is my first real project. I have spent months practicing mortising and cutting tenons and ruining cheap wood before I attempted anything expensive. So far it is turning out better then expected. My future brother in law plays the piano from a kitchen chair making this an ideal wedding gift. I used cherry with ebony accents, I am hoping the finish turns out well.
