Just for Fun #3: Checker Board Coffee Table

05-16-2013 02:11 AM by ScottShaeffer | 2 comments »

I’m working on this coffee table as a wedding gift for my cousin and his wife-to-be. I’m a log furniture maker so there are a lot of techniques I haven’t been introduced to until I started working with fellow Lumber Jock, Kris Williams. Kris makes fine rustic furniture so I’ve been quite fascinated by some of the ways he does things and decided to start playing around with some of it. Of course, I don’t have all the machines Kris has so I require his help for a f...

Tool thoughts #24: Saturday already?!

07-21-2012 03:15 PM by NedB | 1 comment »

My vacation is almost over… I’ve been off work for a couple of weeks now, which has been great on getting stuff done in the shop, but that’s about to end. Next week, I get back under way and start my travel-heavy work schedule. That means today, with a short pause to photograph a friend’s wedding (civil ceremony, not a lot of pomp & Circumstance, and Not a paid gig (I’m a pro photographer by trade)) I’m going to do as much sorting and putting away as I ...

Rustic Coffee Table Top from Start to Finish

06-23-2012 04:44 PM by SergeantSawDust | 3 comments »

This was a project I started before my sudden deployment in September 2011. I got as far as assembling the base and making the drawer but much was left to be desired. Eight months later I got the opportunity to come home on R & R for two weeks and finish my project. I’m thrilled to bring closure to a project I started so long ago and have the chance to feel like a civilian once again as I turn back to finish my 2nd deployment. It’s the little things you miss the most. ...

SoZo Coffee Shop Table Top Series #1: Coffee Shop Table Top Project

01-11-2012 04:55 PM by Doug McPherson | 26 comments »

Some friends of mine run a local Coffee Roasting and Espresso Bar here in my area (Michigan), and they contacted me about building six new table tops for their coffee shop. For the design, we decided to inlay their company logo in each table. I’m using Maple, Walnut and Cherry. I decided to start with making the star. To save some work, I made just two variations, but made them thick enough so that after the glue up, I could slice them in to multiple st...

Learning #1: My "first" project

07-15-2011 05:58 PM by Rha7 | 11 comments »

My wife saw a coffee table like this in a magazine, and asked if I could make one for her… the answer was of course “hell, yeah, your husband can build a fort for you”, but in the mean time, I was thinking, man, she knows the only thing I’ve done is an unintenationally skewed cabinet for the bathroom, that she doesn’t seem to notice, doesn’t care, or just doesn’t mention it. Anyway, I set out to buy the MDF sheet (up to today this is the only mater...

... is shavings in your cup! After finishing my morning espresso, I set the cup down next to my lathe. This is what it looked like about an hour later. It reminded my of a joke that my friend and fellow LumberJock Todd Clippinger tweeted to me.

Coopered Coffee Table #1: Sketchup Design

07-17-2009 02:53 AM by Blake | 13 comments »

I came home with an amazing piece of figured maple from Global Wood Source (an impulse buy) when I bought the stock for my Jellyfish Table. I have been playing around with Sketchup to figure out how to use it and I came up with this design. Brian was asking me about it so I thought I would post it. Let me know what you think. I have some 8/4 Walnut that I can use for the legs. I plan to incorporate wedged tenons that show off the curve through the table top. Also I will resaw the 2̶...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #3: The Wood

07-18-2007 09:18 AM by Dorje | 5 comments »

Well, my daughter and I went down to the hardwood lumber store on Monday and I immediately changed my mind on the kind of wood to use. Why so fickle? Who knows. The Lyptus that I was originally going to go with, only came in 4/4 and 8/4…I really wanted to use 5/4 to get 1” stock for the top. Just wanted more mass (it was also cheaper!) So…18bf of 5/4stock and 6bf 8/4stock of Jatoba/Brazillian Cherry is what we left with: Straight grain for the most part: C...
