Thorsen Side by Side LJ / PW Challenge Karson #5: The second of the twins. The Popular table.

05-22-2007 08:41 PM by Karson | 6 comments »

In my blog I started to talk about my next set of Thorsen Greene and Greene Tables. I called them my Twins.. The blog talked about my use of Holly wood and Popular wood to make the set of twins. Both woods in their normal state are quite light. Holly as being classified as the whitest of woods and Popular as an Ivory color for sapwood and usually a light green tint in the heart wood. Here are pictures of normal Holly and Popular The Holly is in the left and the Popular on the right of t...

Kitchen cabinet columns

05-22-2007 03:06 PM by Roger Strautman | 8 comments »

I had a local cabinet company that wanted me to make them 58”L. columns to match the ones that they bought from their suppler who couldn’t make the longer ones. Well, this worked to in my favor because I still needed to finish off our kitchen island ends and this was a good solution. This project took jigs to accomplish. I just love the challenge of making a jig that really works. This shows the columns with one end finished. I had to carve the curved part of the...

Tree Peaching ”....and so i went walking for a trial at finding my pace”, there i go again even now as i push these covers back, looking outside my window i feel the vibrations rolling off your face, till in the essence of the moment i am gripped by the reality of drooling yack…. —-it’s better now since in the morning’s light of my firebird day, i can go off into the woodlands that surround my empyrean sphere, consistently verbed i am within this vaul...

Thorsen Side Table #5: The pegs are installed, the pegs are installed

05-22-2007 04:48 AM by fred | 12 comments »

I have really enjoyed looking at all the completed projects. They are truly awesome. I installed the pegs last week. I used a shim to help prevent installing the pegs too deep. It worked well. I put tape around the peg mortises to help in the clean up of any glue squeeze out. For the finish I used a combination tung oil and urethane mix. Three coats so far and with some 400-600 grit smoothing in between another 2-3 coats should do it. You can see some of the details of the peg...

Thorsen Table contest #6: one more layer of green

05-22-2007 03:39 AM by scottb | 18 comments »

Most of the old door has been milled down in size or thickness in preparations for this table. This has made quick work of paint removal – no tedious sanding, scraping or stripping. One of the door panels will be the lower shelf, but doesn’t require any milling to bring this down to the proper thickness. So, in keeping with the green theme of the Greene and Greene inspired table I pulled out some “Ready Strip” and slathered on an (incidentally green) layer of “...

Back to the Shop, finally

05-22-2007 02:38 AM by RickInTexas | 3 comments »

Well, I was finally able to get back into the shop to continue work on the crib. I now have one end panel ready for final sanding, with the other just needing to mill out the slats to be able to glue it up. It felt great to be back in the surrounding confines, but a little ackward. I share a shop with my dad at his house, and he is in the process of rearranging the 2-car garage (storage area) and the shop that’s attached. So it made things a little difficult at first, particularly findi...

Auxillary Workbench #3: Using Dowelmax to join the bases with stretchers - VIDEO

05-22-2007 01:08 AM by mot | 12 comments »

I wanted to put a bolt through the stretchers in order to tighten up an seasonal slack that might occur with this bench. The perfect thing to do, (perfect only because I thought of it,) was to use two dowels for anti-rotation pins and then put a bolt through the stretcher. This is just a short blog entry today. This video is how I used Dowelmax to align the stretchers to the base. In part IV of this series, I’ll discuss the top of the bench, and move on to the skirt and vise i...
