I bought 35 bd ft of Hondo Mahogany. It’s been stickered for about a week. I cut it all up and now it’s ready for the next phase. Knife hinges are on order and some ebony from e-bay. I’ll let it all sit till the weekend and keep my fingers crossed that none of the sticks will warp. I have been planning this way too long. Here are all the boards. They are about 11” wide. There is an 8/4 piece in the forground. Here are all the sticks and a rare sh...
I got over to the lumber store to look at some mahogany last Thursday. Friday we had the storm of the century here in Northern California. Knocked down my lemon tree and a good chunk of fence in the back yard so I got diverted from this project cleaning up stuff.

Doing this, I got to think out the w...

Sorry I can’t remember who to credit it to. Anyway, Here are two jpeg exports to compare. I think the new arrangement gives the table a low and wide...
The continuation of my Thorsen Hall table. The beginning is here My wife is happy with what is happening so far. I suggested that I try the other Greene and Greene feature that is the breadboard spline a key between the top and the breadboard end. I used a book that I bought on Greene and Greene furniture. The book is called Greene and Greene Design Elements for the Workshop by Darrell Peart published by Linden Publishing 2005. I got a piece of Blackwood 1 ¼” square and 5” long. ...
My wife was starting to get ready for some Christmas decorations. She notified me that she’d like a Sofa table to place against the wall in the kitchen to put decorations on. She also stated a requirement that it be like the Thorsen table that was built by my son Dave. for the Thorsen Table Challenge that we had earlier here on LumberJocks.com .
