Claro Dining Table #1: Huge Claro Slab & Design

683 days ago by Blake | 14 comments »

For the first time ever I was accepted by a local gallery for my furniture a few months ago, and I’ve even sold a few pieces lately! I sold the two Opposing Arch Tables (hall table and coffee table) as a set, and I also sold the Wishbone Table. Currently the SUMO Credenza, the Stiletto Cabinet and the Graham Nash Sofa Table are in the gallery for sale. But now the gallery keeps telling me they want a dining table. So I want to make sure I fill that need before someone else does. A...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #2: Step-by-step Tabletop Continued

739 days ago by Donowoodworks | 0 comments »

I got a bit more time to work on my tabletop today and it is coming along! I think that the longest part remaining is going to be cutting the butterfly dovetails to keep the cracks from spreading. One edge on the bottom is a mess. It will take some time, but I plan on at least 100 years of service out of a piece of furniture when I build, so it will be worth it. I want to keep away from straight lines in this piece, so I used a curve to draw the edges of the table. The curve is adju...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #1: Step-by-step Tabletop

741 days ago by Donowoodworks | 4 comments »

I have been itching to make a table for a while now. Not just any table, mind you, but a live-edge table made from a slab or two. When summer began I told myself that I would do it, and while I was browsing the internet looking for wood slabs, I came across a gentleman who had literally hundreds of slabs sitting in his back yard, waiting to be sold.I looked up the address and saw that it was close to some family members, some seven hours of driving away. “Perfect excuse.” I tho...

Graham Nash Music Stand #3: Joinery and Hardware

1051 days ago by Blake | 12 comments »

Once the glue had fully cured on the post I ran it through the planer. Then I used a table saw tenon jig to cut the joint where the post connects to the base. I made multiple kerfs on the table saw, And then removed the waste on the bandsaw. The finished joint dry fitted: I forgot to take a photo of the “before,” but this is how I repaired an inch-long chip that broke off one of the feet when I cut the joint. I started by using a chisel and then a file t...

Graham Nash Music Stand #2: Taking Shape

1091 days ago by Blake | 17 comments »

This is the laminated adjustable section after the clamps came off: It gets run through the planer and its pretty much done: These are the two halves of the main lower section of the stand. The insides are routed out to receive the adjustable post which will slide inside the lower section. I removed most of the inside on the router table. Then I finished it by using a palm router with bottom clearing bit until the slots were the perfect size. Checking the fit with the two...

Graham Nash Music Stand #1: Claro Walnut Slab with a Story

1093 days ago by Blake | 18 comments »

One of my relatives has a connection with musician Graham Nash. And although I have never actually met Nash, somehow I ended up with a beautiful slab of Claro Walnut from his old hot tub. Well, my dad is a guitarist and fan of all things Rock n’ Roll. And I have been planning to build him a music stand for several years now. So I figured since this piece of memorabilia fell into my lap, it was the perfect time to build him one. Here is the slab in the back of my truck: Its ...
