Veneered Sofa Table #9: Finished just in time for Christmas

940 days ago by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

This is the final post for my Veneered Sofa Table project. It is finally finished, the weekend before Christmas. In my last post, I had finished staining the non veneered portions of the table using General Finishes Light Walnut Oil Stain. The only reason that I stained the mahogany was to match an existing piece. Next step was to attached the table top. I was out of figure 8 clips so I created home made fasteners by drilling a pocket screw into a wooden tab and then drilling an ...

You guys are so nice, I had no choice but to share. This design was prevously used for making cigar humidors. I don’t have good pictures of them—sorry. I have lots of detailed instructions for every step to make this box. Just ask and I’ll add more to this blog. The rough cut diagram shows the sequence t...

The bottom is a glued up panel of soft maple with a 1/8” walnut inlay of walnut. I cut the inlay out using the router with a 1/8” bit held free hand cutting close to the line and then c...

Serving Tray #2: Done

2174 days ago by Bigbuck | 5 comments »

Well had a interesting time in the mountains. We had a bear that kept coming around, until the Game and fish finally came and took care of him after he broke into a couple of other cabins in the area. After that it was a relaxing time spent catching fish and enjoing the cool mountains Anyway, back to the serving tray. I decided not to add any more keys for fear of messing up a good thing. The silver wire inlay proved to be a little more difficult than I anticipated but for the first ti...

I had the 2 different veneers already on a mdf substrate, so it was simply cutting to size applying glue and turning on the press. Hope you enjoy and thanks for watchingPaul

Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...
