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...

Walnut Slab Coffee Table #1: Flattening slab with router sled

01-01-2012 07:14 PM by Lumber2Sawdust | 5 comments »

I started a post about a wood gloat about a month ago. I found some nice walnut slabs at a sawmill for some projects. The first one up is a coffee table. I thought I would start a blog about the process of preparing the slab. I may follow this with more about adding a base to the table as it progresses. I’ve done a fair number of projects in the past, but nothing involving a big slab like this. I have been excited about getting this project started, but Christmas was approaching...

In the wood shop today #7: Applying oil/resin finish to curly walnut trestle coffee table

08-08-2012 09:19 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 3 comments »

In this video I’m applying my 3 part hand rubbed oil/resin finish to a Canadian Black Walnut coffee table base. I talk more about what and amount of ingredients in my 3 part hand rubbed oil resin finish. I can’t call it mine though, pretty sure it’s been used by many many people. I initially read about it in a Sam Maloof book I think it was called Woodworker. Well I hope you enjoy the video, I finish it up by showing the curly walnut book matched live edge coffee table to...

Improving my photography skills

03-22-2008 05:43 AM by Don Kondra | 14 comments »

Greetings, Some background first, some of this information was included in a recent post but for those of you that missed it I’ll start from the beginning :) Until recently I was having my pieces shot by a professional. He moved, sigh… For archive type shots I was using a Kodak 2 mp P&S. For web stuff it worked fine and I even had an image printed in Fine Woodworking’s Readers Gallery. They must have REALLY liked the piece :) I never liked the idea of the ...

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...

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.

Walnut Slab Coffee Table #2: Finishing and the final result

03-25-2013 03:24 AM by Lumber2Sawdust | 3 comments »

I started this blog with a post about flattening the odd-shaped slab of walnut over a year ago. A lumberjock recently requested that I follow up on that post as I had intended to. I don’t have as many photos of the rest of the process but will describe what I can. The router sled was awesome for making the slab flat and it was smooth enough that I could spend some time with hand planes and a card scraper to get it smooth without too much difficulty. It was still challenging becaus...

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...
