In the wood shop today #6: Resawing a 17'' wide 2'' thick live edge canadian black walnut slab

07-28-2012 09:21 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

I’m using my band saw to re-saw a 2’’ thick piece of Canadian black walnut into 2 boards that I will glue up for the top of a coffee table top. This is a live edge board that measures about 17’’ at it’s widest part, I’ve already squared up the board using my planer due to the boards width. I plan on using the resawn boards for a solid walnut maloof inspired coffee table, I’ve never done this coffee table base with a live edge so I’...

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

07-22-2012 01:55 AM 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...

Mission to two Mission Coffee Tables #3: Tenons Tenons Tenons...

07-02-2012 03:19 AM by Everett1 | 3 comments »

It’s been a busy and productive past two days. Got all my stock to dimension and ready to go. Cut everything to length with my uber awesome “miter station”... Oh yeah, look at my built in stop blocks baby! I’m a tenon’s first kind of guy. My only reasoning, and not sure how good it is, is I like to take the pieces with tenons, and use those in 3D for the layouts of my Mortises. With a piece like this with a lot of slats, I feel it’s easier that wa...

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. ...

Outdoor Furniture #9: Finally Finished!

05-28-2012 03:47 AM by Retsof | 7 comments »

It took me nine days from start to finish, but I’m finally done with my Adirondack Patio Set. I am really tired of painting too! The chairs are sitting by the pool where they and I will be spending Memorial Day. Hunter and Huckleberry, my English Springer Spaniels, approve. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to format my photos so the right 1/3 of the picture doesn’t get cut off when I link them in my blog? If not, I guess I’ll have to make sure all the im...

I decided to add a coffee table to my set with some of my extra lumber. The kids and I spent the day sanding and priming all the furniture. Tomorrow is painting day! Can’t wait to see them in my backyard by Sunday evening.

Walnut Coffee Table #7: Project Completed

02-11-2012 02:33 AM by Lifesaver2000 | 1 comment »

I have completed the final finishing and assembly of this project. I was able to spray four coats of Sherwin-Williams Wood Classics® Waterborne Polyurethane Varnish. I also mounted the drawer slides and fronts. The top was attached with tabletop fasteners from McFeely’s. I am afraid I didn’t have time to take pictures as I went along or to take pictures of the finished project, but I hope to be able to do that this weekend and post the project here early next week. I will a...

Walnut Coffee Table #6: Crossing the "Finish" Line

02-01-2012 01:25 AM by Lifesaver2000 | 1 comment »

Despite a slow down due to cold weather, I have been able to get bits and pieces done, to where I can see the end is in sight for this project. Since my last post, I was able to get the glue scraping done on the top, get the corners rounded, round over the edge and get the whole top sanded down to 220. Even without any finish, this made a lot of difference in the look, and I really like it. Over the course of a few days, I also finished sanding the drawer boxes and the main base of the...

My first coffee tables. #1: Evolution of first coffee table

01-30-2012 06:49 PM by coldsneak | 1 comment »

The first version of the coffee table include corner built legs. Two 1×4’s screwed and glued up at right angles with the bracing side curved in 3 inches above the floor. My more intelligent better looking half did not like the legs so I had to redo them. My style is called rustic. The entire table top is made from deck boards 5/8×6 by 35. The boards were rough sanded then biscuit joined and glued. Now the legs are 19” x 5 1/2” x 3 1/2’ landscape timber cut...
