Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #7: Preparing Cores and First Test Bagged Board

03-21-2017 02:08 AM by TungOil | 0 comments »

Now that all of the veneer material is ready it is time to prepare the baltic birch plywood cores. Each finished board consists of two 3/4” baltic birch center cores with a sapele veneer top and bottom. I first cut each 5’x5’ sheet roughly in half for easier handling. The cut is placed slightly off center to be sure I get the maximum number of strips from each piece of plywood. The top shelf on my parts cart is high enough to allow large parts to pass over my join...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #6: Resawing Top Veneers & CNC Forms

03-15-2017 03:25 AM by TungOil | 4 comments »

This weekend I was able to resaw all the veneers for the top from the figured sapele. These three boards started out as a single 9/4 board 16’ long. There was quite a bit of bow and twist to take out, but light passes with the jointer flattened one face with minimal chip out. Once I had a flat face I was able to resaw into veneer. The figured sapele proved to be far more difficult to resaw than the quarter sawn I used for the bottom veneers. The blade had more of a tendency to ...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #5: Veneer Resawing- Bottoms

03-07-2017 04:05 AM by TungOil | 4 comments »

I spent some time this weekend setting up to resaw my veneers. I put together a quick jig to help assure my veneer thickness came out as even as possible. Since even a variance of just 0.005” over ten slices of veneer could add up to nearly 1/16”, I made sure my jig was parallel to the blade. In addition, I flipped the board for each slice of veneer to cancel out any error accumulation. Each veneer slice is 5-1/4” wide and 5’ long. The cuts take about 18 m...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #4: Veneer Thickness

02-25-2017 01:25 AM by TungOil | 2 comments »

With my materials procured, it’s time to start planning the cuts to make the veneers for the table top. If I’m careful, I can plan the cuts to yield all of the veneer used for the top from a single board. This will give me the best grain and color match across the table, especially important when using figured materials. My table top is designed around 5” wide boards- the veneered cores for each half of the ellipse are made up of seven 5” wide boards totaling 35&...

Sharpening Station | Sink Bridge

View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones.

And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...

Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by Jace McDaniel | 1 comment »

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

Building a quick cheap and easy steam box

08-11-2016 03:37 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

I needed a steam box to steam bend a walnut handle. The last time I, steam bent a handle I just threw it in a contractor bag and pumped it full of steam. This worked OK but by the end of the steaming process the bag had started to melt and it turned into a bit of a mess. This time I decided to build a proper steam box, but lost interest because I hate shop projects, I’d rather be building furniture. Instead, I built a down and dirty steam box. If you would like the deep down detai...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #3: Part 2B# - Inspiration at the Chicago Art Institute

07-22-2016 01:21 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I realized shortly after posting Part #2 that some inspirational pictures might go a long way towards illustrating my point (like the pun?). After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Last summer we visited the Chicago Art Institute. Wow what a place. We saw plenty of major works of art. This one might be familiar: Of course there were plenty of other Masterpieces. Then, towards the end of the day we sauntered into a gallery that had furniture in it. I immediately spotte...
