Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #4: Table Top

09-08-2009 03:38 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

As I was waiting for another project to dry, I did a little work on the table top. I had cut it oversized on purpose to take advantage of the wavy figure in the board. I then had to face the difficult decision of how to trim it down for a sofa/foyer table that didn’t stick too far out. I settled on a 14” wide board, which leaves plenty of room for a decent overhand in the front, 2 1/4” legs, and a side apron that doesn’t look like a chubby baby’s leg. I the...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #3: Wood Selection

09-07-2009 06:01 PM by CaptainSkully | 6 comments »

Being as it’s Labor Day Weekend, and I’m out of QSWO, and my lumber yard isn’t open until Tuesday, I turned from my other projects and worked with what I had, a butt-load of mahogany. My buddy was over talking boat stuff, so I asked him to give me a hand with the behemoth boards. We laid out both 3/4” x 18” x 10’ boards on the sawhorses and looked at the magnificent, flowing grain patterns. We picked out the nicest 4’ section and he helped me rough...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #2: Virtual Design

09-04-2009 07:58 AM by CaptainSkully | 7 comments »

I’ve spent a couple of hours in AutoCAD trying to find the right proportions (using the Golden Mean religously), and here’s what I’ve come up with: It’s 36” wide and 30” tall. Please let me know what you think. This project is too important to leave it up to me…

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #1: In the Beginning...

09-03-2009 06:27 AM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

This is my most ambitious project to date. I’m going to make a Greene & Greene sofa table that closely follows the design of premier G&G LJ Darrell Peart. I pinged him the other day, and he sent me to American Furniture Design Co. to buy plans. As you can see, they’re not identical to the one made by Marc in Darrell’s class at William Ng's woodworking school. American Furniture’s Version: TheWoodWhisperer’s Version: What I plan to do i...

Thorsen Side by Side LJ / PW Challenge Karson #5: The second of the twins. The Popular table.

05-22-2007 08:41 PM by Karson | 6 comments »

In my blog I started to talk about my next set of Thorsen Greene and Greene Tables. I called them my Twins.. The blog talked about my use of Holly wood and Popular wood to make the set of twins. Both woods in their normal state are quite light. Holly as being classified as the whitest of woods and Popular as an Ivory color for sapwood and usually a light green tint in the heart wood. Here are pictures of normal Holly and Popular The Holly is in the left and the Popular on the right of t...

Thorsen Side by Side LJ / PW Challenge Karson #4: A jig I made for use in the Thorsen table

05-09-2007 03:30 AM by Karson | 6 comments »

I wanted to show the jig that I used for making the Thorsen Greene & Greene table Aprons. The plans in Popular Woodworking had a cutout on each of the aprons. Different patterns on the sides and the front and back. I took the plans and printed them on my printer but each of the boxes were suppose to be 1” square and they were small. So I took the printout to Staples and had them copy them at 125% increase. I ended up with 1” squares. I then glued the paper on some ½” particle board ...

Thorsen House #2: The details are a little rustic

04-19-2007 09:37 PM by dennis mitchell | 17 comments »

The photos aren’t the best, but here is my update on the Greene and Greene table. Yes I went rustic. I got thinking (think…think…think) and I became interested in translating some of the details to a rustic style. I have a very old cheap band saw so I’ve not done much re-sawing. I’ve never done a breadboard end. Notice I book matched the top. I’m using pine from an old corral and a few pine branches from my firewood pile for the legs. The pegs are well drie...
