A friend of mine has been telling me for a while that he had shown his parents my website and that they love my work and wanted me to make them something. Well they eventually contacted me and commissioned me to make a table for them. They bought a lamp from an artist named Brian Giambastiani, which looks like a Jellyfish. The head, which illuminates, is made of blown glass, and the tentacles are copper wire. It is about 40” tall. So my challenge was to build a table that ...
I have been thinking about making another table lately. I had so much fun building the Sewing Table that I wanted to make something for our house. And my wife has wanted a place to put her collection of jewelry. So we came up with this idea (actually it was mostly her idea) and I started doing some designing today. This is what I came up with so far. The idea is to make a hall table with a lifting “lid” and a hidden jewelry case underneath with lots of room for necklaces, brace...

I recently returned from seven awesome (and tiring) days of teaching at the William Ng School of Fine Woodworking. The first five days were dedicated to the Modern Hall Table, and the weekend class was focused on the frame. And believe it or not, the frame was the more challenging project to complete in the given time-frame. But I am glad to say that everyone was able to go home with some semblance of a finished project. I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures I took durin...
I cut all of the parts for the bases over the last couple of weeks, mortise and tenoned all of the rails and legs and rails, and assembled the bases. Each table used a custom jig for cutting the tapers on the table saw. My hope is to use these again for another commissioned project. They handle 26 1/4” and 28 1/4” legs. Each taper starts 1” below the edge of the rails, ending to a 7/8” taper at the ends. The sapele really planes well with a sharp low-angle blade....
Modeled off Brian Hubble’s “Slim”. Can’t wait to see it standing up and finished.
This is my 1st attempt at building an indoor piece. I wanted a wall table for my office. It is made of red oak. I purchased some red oak on craiglist for $40.00. Most of it was only 3-5 inches wide with mitre cuts on one side. I cut off the mitres and used my table saw and planer to square the pieces up. I glued up pieces for the majority of the project. I tapered the legs on 4 sides using my table saw, with the Incra Miter 1000SE, which helped a lot! The legs are 1 3/4” at the top and ...
I have decided to build a hallway table with two large walnut boards I bought last year (from craigslist). I have included two sketchup drawings of the concept. It will be 15” deep x 40” long x 31 1/2” tall and fits at the top of my second story stair landing. The detail picture shows where I’ll use some left-over cherry to border the drawers and rails with cherry that I will bead for effect. The drawing also shows a cherry inlay strip and circle, but if I have a good...
