Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table #2: The table top. 70% Sanded

2217 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

Here is the top, it is 70% sanded. You can see the large crack around the center of the the hearts, we will fill these cracks in with inlay and add some to the other side as well so we can balance it out. We add a tempered hardboard to the underside of the top, this adds extra stability and seems to help the wood from twisting over time plus with a few wood screws, bolts and gorrilla glue, it is a great way to attach the top to the base. We knocked the dark spot out of the...

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #16: My saga continues -- really starting to get some ideas now though

2217 days ago by Betsy | 2 comments »

As with any new thing – it’s a stop and start learning experience. Yep. Still working on the hall-table-drawing. Getting a lot of great help from Dave and David – thanks guys. So now I’ve started again with the legs. I’ve come a long ways from just a simple rectangle on the ground – but it’s a long way from a fancy turning. But that will come in time. (I promise that I won’t start from the beginning every single time I blog—- but right now it makes sense to me.) The table leg is...

Flying wood -- Not good.

2217 days ago by Karson | 38 comments »

A red mark on the mid tummy. It looks to me that the piece of wood hit me in the tummy and then passed between my body and my arm. The finger could have been the first contact point. I was cutting a 2” strip of wood off a 2’ long plank and I pushed the wood past the blade. I am gu...

Rocking Chair Problem

2218 days ago by Huckleberry | 7 comments »

Latest and greatest project is for my sister-in-law that is due to have a baby any day now. I am doing the style out of Wood Magazine issue #183. Everything is going well, but I lost the paper that has the rest of the patterns on it for the seat slats. So Jocks if any one has this issue and wouldn’t mind scanning or what ever I would appreciate it. Here is a picture of what it looks like now.

Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table #1: Getting the plan

2218 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 4 comments »

We have had many requests for coffee tables, so we are making them as fast as we can. We plan on making 2 more coffee tables and I think the next two will have glass tops, anyway here is the project that I am working on. This table has a “sweeping” movement to it. I had a request to make on that was similar to a coffee table table I posted on here. Well this is as close as I can get. We will also have to add a couple of legs so that it will stand without sitting on a base ...
