Walnut Coffee Table #1: Preparation

937 days ago by Lifesaver2000 | 0 comments »

Preparation for this new project started a couple of weeks ago, although planning has been going on for a while. I purchased 200 board feet of locally harvested, air dried 4/4 walnut lumber. It has been sitting in a barn for quite a few years, and most of the boards are wide and fairly straight. Price was $2.00 per board foot. From what I have seen for prices on here, this seems to be pretty good. (I know 200 bf is more than I will need for this project, but I have a few others planned....

Fresh Walnut slabs

980 days ago by WoodLe | 9 comments »

Got a chance to slab a large walnut log today that I just picked up. Put a brand new chain on my mill and took off cutting. Went pretty good till the second cut when my saw found that 7 inch bolt that was just waiting to snag my chain. Had to resharpen a couple times but all said and done I got seven nice slabs all 3-4 inches thick. Large ones are about 36 inches on the small end to about 44 inches at the large end by 10 feet long. I will be posting on my website after awhile. Gota ge...

Live Edged, Spalted Maple Slab Coffee Table #1: Concept

1034 days ago by JamesVavra | 5 comments »

While the project is already underway, I thought I go ahead and start from the beginning. A couple of years ago, I built a new workshop in the backyard. I included a ‘bonus’ room above it with plans to eventually finish it out as a mancave: wet bar, big TV, etc. Although the mancave is not 100% finished out (I still need to make some cabinet doors, connect the water supply, and paint trim) it’s football season and have the big TV and a comfy couch, so it’s useable....

145 - Greene & Greene Coffee Table Pictorial

1182 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 12 comments »

Download Low ResolutionDownload High ResolutionSubscription Options Every year, I like to take some time off for my own woodworking eduction. I truly believe that a craftsman never stops learning. Even when you think you know all there is about a technique or topic, there is always something to be gained from another perspective. A 5-day class at the William Ng School fits the bill quite nicely for an educational adventure. The William Ng School is located in Anaheim, Ca and features cla...

Coffee Table #1: The Design, The Client, The Price.

1223 days ago by pashley | 4 comments »

So the mother-in-law needs a new coffee table! Well, really, she does; the old one is falling apart. So her favorite son-in-law is stepping up to the plate. Requirements: Simple, beautiful, lower shelf. Here’s what I came up with: It’s looking like the materials will be about $150…and I’m thinking $100 for labor. Cheap, I know, but it’s the in-laws, what can you do? LOL. The dark wood you see on the top and feet are ebony inlays. The top i...

Time lapse Woodworking #1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

1307 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...

Figured Maple and Walnut Coffee Table #3: Second Weekend part two

1364 days ago by bohnsai | 1 comment »

I left off with the top being glued to some MDF risers. This morning I finish sanded it and put on two coats of lacquer. I will oil the walnut but I didn’t want to Maple any darker so I figured I’d lacquer it so when it’s all built up, the oil wont get into the maple top. Step 5: Finishing the Shelf I ripped the walnut border to length and laid it out to get an idea where to cut the biscuits. The center piece was a very clear piece of face grained walnut, so when I wen...
