145 - Greene & Greene Coffee Table Pictorial

04-18-2011 05:24 PM 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.

03-08-2011 12:07 AM 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

12-14-2010 03:55 AM 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

10-18-2010 12:49 AM 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...

Figured Maple and Walnut Coffee Table #1: Getting started

10-10-2010 03:57 AM by bohnsai | 2 comments »

I figured I’d start a blog about a project from start to finish so other readers can follow my progress and hopefully learn from my inevitable mistakes in the process ;-) I also wanted to show readers how to make complex furniture with limited tools and space. So a little about the project: I sold my crappy yet still somewhat pricey plywood and veneer coffee table/end tables a little while ago on Craigslist and have been desperately needing to fill the void. My eventual goal is to...

My maple coffee table #1: Sketchup model, ideas welcome please.

06-24-2010 05:06 AM by DrewM | 6 comments »

My wife asked me if I could make a coffee table for the living room and after she bought me the planer for my birthday I can’t say no. So I spent some time on Sketchup and showed her a view models and this is the one she likes. She likes simple grain patterns and a darker finish. I think maple with a nice darker cherry stain would be a good choice. I don’t have much experience with finishing wood but that will have to be the focus of another blog entry. Well anyway here is a pictu...

Coffee and conversations: A new table

09-16-2009 04:49 AM by Gary | 4 comments »

A coffee table, we need a coffee table. Hmmm? This project, which is nearing completion, is a coffee table.No big thing typically. A set of legs, a few rips on the table saw, a little glue,some mortise and tenons and Bob’s your uncle. Not quite this time. I didn’t want to make “another table.” More than that, I wanted to build something where the timbers I wanted to use dictated the design.Well, partially—there was a height constraint which needed to be ...

Juniper Coffee Table Base #2 #5: Ready to Spray the Finish

03-06-2009 09:39 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

The creative process of building the supports for the glass top took longer than expected, but then again we always expect the unexepected, so then again we did expect it. Hahaha did that make sense? Anyway here it is, we are hoping to spray them tomorrow and sunday if the wind does not blow like mad.
