The URL I had here I wasn’t sure it was working so I put another link below. I want to tell you all something that might help alot of you. I’ve seen free wood offered alot lately in a group I belong to. It is called freecycle.org. You go to the site find your area and than join. In your group you can post an offer or a want. No money is to be exchanged. You can get all kinds of things free this way. It is a good way to get rid of clutter in your home as well. Every time...

Series #1 Begining Thorsen Table Attempt

04-05-2007 05:56 PM by jockmike2 | 9 comments »

Geez Louiz, I’ve been railroaded. Not really, I’ve found out I have a lot of friends and support and it gives me, well it makes me feel kinda mushy. Anyway, with their support I’ve decided to jump in the fray and give this table a try. Like I said before the worse that could happen is my wife would end up with my version of a green and green table. I do have a turninig to finish on the lathe today and post that, then I guess its down to the nitty gritty of planing and jointi...

drying out wood

04-05-2007 04:32 PM by Lou | 13 comments »

yesterday i was pruning a tree and had to cut off a branch, when i did, i realized that i could use the wood for a table for my sisters dolls that she has been wanting me to make. the branch is about a 3 inch diameter. i cut them in about 16 inches. so i started wondering about how i can dry it out without a kiln? can i dry out the branch just over some of the summer? but then i was thinking about cracking that would happen if i did that… so is there any way to do this? any comments or...

Kitchens #3: Finishing and Rambling and Rambling

04-05-2007 06:43 AM by dennis mitchell | 13 comments »

I’ve picked a very simple drawer style. Rabbited, glued and screwed, this is a very strong design. No fancy dovetails, but I’ll put these up against most any commercial drawer for durability.In the back of my mind I’ve been wondering if I will have to quit woodworking for a living. My back just will not let me stand on concrete with out sharp pain. I’m fine lifting and moving cabinets, but 1/2 hour spraying and I’m about in tears. This last year has seen a major ...

Thorsen table challenge - tease! #3: INSTALLMENT #2

04-05-2007 04:53 AM by oscorner | 30 comments »

Well, I’ve got some more pictures of my process. I started assembly using the beadLock system. Here is a look at the mortise formed by it: Here is a shot of the 3/8” tenon stock in the mortise. I used a jigsaw to cut the pattern in the first table apron and then used my router to duplicate in the other three. I glued up and clamped the front of the table. My first problem. After gluing up the front and rear table assemblies I noticed that the alignment ...

Do I have time to make the table, someone help me decide.

04-05-2007 04:41 AM by jockmike2 | 12 comments »

I was going to go for it then I started having problems logging onto this site. Now I just might have time, but I don’t know if this old back can take it. Just getting ready is going to be quite job for me. My mortiser is like Dick Cains and like him I like it. But it goes on my drill press. So I have to hook that setup setup. Luckily I changed out the blades in my planer the other day so I don’t have that to do. But I do have a lot of jointing and planing with all rough lumber. T...

Thorsen Greene Side Table

04-05-2007 03:58 AM by Jim Earl | 13 comments »

Many of you all have contacted me on getting in on this Thorsen Greene Side Table. Nothing more would give me any more pleasure in doing this. BUT I am currently without any shop or garage I can work outof to produce a fine piece as many of you are doing. Another reason is I am not able to get out in this cold weather due to an illness I had a year and 1/2 ago. This ilnness left me with many side affects, that I wish I was without. but doing the wood burnings I do makes me feel like I am stil...
