BEFORE I am finally finished my shuffle board table. I was asked to re-finish a table that had been in the cool, damp basement for about 15 years. I thought, why not, I have re-finished dining room tables, furniture kitchen cabinets.THIS one took awhile. The boards were cupped, I was able to rescrew and straighten that. Some boards were separating, I was able to fill that. I was able to get the table level both directions, the top was smooth and flat.I applied several coats of poly. P...

Thorsen House Cabinet #12: A little on Ebony plugs....

04-22-2015 07:30 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Japanese Carpentry Tool Box 第 #3: Glue Up - Sides

04-22-2015 04:29 AM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

Diagonal measurements are the same – square overall. This one is coming out better than the first one (so far). Just more pictures of each of the square mortise/tenons.
