Claro Dining Table #1: Huge Claro Slab & Design

675 days ago by Blake | 14 comments »

For the first time ever I was accepted by a local gallery for my furniture a few months ago, and I’ve even sold a few pieces lately! I sold the two Opposing Arch Tables (hall table and coffee table) as a set, and I also sold the Wishbone Table. Currently the SUMO Credenza, the Stiletto Cabinet and the Graham Nash Sofa Table are in the gallery for sale. But now the gallery keeps telling me they want a dining table. So I want to make sure I fill that need before someone else does. A...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #6: Finishing Touches

681 days ago by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Top finished Frame assembled Four-inch long T30 lags secure the top timbers. Laminated or not? By laying out my jointlines carefully, I was able to laminate some 8/4 and 5/4 together. The glueline is at the angle of the timber, so it is not visible. In addition, I laminated some thin veneers on both sides. Back to the project page… http://lumberjocks.com/projects/71281

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #5: Keyed Tenons are Mirror-Image

685 days ago by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I never would have guessed that cutting 4 mortises would take all afternoon. Because the mortises are angled to match the wedges, the fitting process takes a little longer than usual. I cut the first one by hand, then decided to cut the rest at the mortiser. Cutting past the layout line on the shoulder side of the mortise will ensure the joint pulls tight. Keys installed. A few taps on the wedges and the shoulders draw up tight. The keys were cut on the bandsaw. When the k...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #4: End Assembly Glueup and Decorative Pegs

688 days ago by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

End assembly joints are drawbored and pegged with 3/8” walnut pegs. I use this pounding block to set the walnut buttons to the right depth. The buttons conceal slotted screw holes that attach the breadboard ends. Next up is fitting the keyed tenons that connect the two end assemblies.

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #3: Breadboard Ends

696 days ago by pintodeluxe | 0 comments »

Cutting the tenon with a router and edge guide jig. This is the setup described by Gregory Paolini. It works well, the only trouble is you have to flip the table several times while sneaking up on the final depth of cut. I recommend cutting only the first pass, then flip and check the fit. Cutting all the way to the shoulder will make it difficult to support the router. The jig is clamped in place, and stays put while you flip the top. Double sided jig helps align the shoulders of t...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #2: Long Arched Rails, and Tabletop

700 days ago by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

After pattern routing the long arched rails, it was time to turn my attention to the top. I started with 6/4 stock, all from the same log. Biscuits were placed every 6” to help with alignment and add strength. I once did an experiment with biscuits – joined two boards with biscuits (no glue) and soaked them in water for a while. I took it around to each family member to see if they could pull the boards apart—- and none could. I took the top over to Creative Woodwo...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #1: Frame components and tabletop

701 days ago by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I wanted to design an arts and crafts dining table that included arched rails and twin keyed tenons. I like several of the Stickley tables, but wanted something original. I like the feel of Keven Rodel’s Talesien desk, which served as inspiration for this table. The stack of parts is growing… Initial frame assembly… And the tabletop glueup…

Enzo Mari table mod project #1: The plans for "MY" table

914 days ago by JAcker | 1 comment »

I have a source for some wood – although I don’t plan to use 1x pine (I am sure Enzo Mari would not mind), it seems a little understated for such an elegant looking paln – but still no plans. From conception a year ago, I got it into my head that my table would be an extension table. Part of the whole point of Autoprogettazione was that the furniture user should be a part of the design, and since most people don’t know how to do much with tools, the designs had to b...

Mission Dining Build #5 - Table Apron, and final assembly

960 days ago by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

The table assembly is now complete. Since the leaves store in the table, the aprons needed to be hinged. I used short piano (continuous) hinges from hardware source.com. The hinges are 4.5” long, and lock at 90 degrees, similar to jewlery box hinges. I used inset rare earth magnets to lock the hinged aprons in there in-use positions. Felt lines the frame, which creates a nice little nest for the leaves. The table extends to accept two 12” leaves v...

Mission Dining Build #4 - The Table

980 days ago by pintodeluxe | 0 comments »

The dining table is well underway, with the frame assembled and equilizer slides installed. I think there are some misconceptions about equilizer slides. They work for pedastal tables, or any design where the legs are stationary when opening the table. I had to do some searching to find slides that would accomodate this 46” wide by 104” long table. It will have two 12” leaves, and is 80” long when closed. The other spec I needed was...
