River Red Gum Coffee Table #2: Levelling table top and making legs

07-27-2013 09:35 AM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

Hi again, It’s been a while as I have been away but here is my progress on the table. I have levelled the tabletop using a large belt sander and a straight edge, quite a time consuming job but I think the end result was worth the time. Then I hit it with an orbital sander using a few different grades of paper. Here is a pic after the first coat of Weatherfast Polyclear boat varnish, I decided not to fill the many holes as I want it to look as natural as possible. The varnis...

Adventures of a Novice Woodworker #3: Mortise? No thank you, I'm full...

09-30-2008 05:01 AM by Jeff Kochosky | 1 comment »

Now for the rest of the photos of the work performed so far on my introductory woodworking project. After cutting all the pieces to size, the next step was to mortise the legs. We used a router table with a couple stop-blocks set to control the length of the mortises. (If you look closely, you can see that the stop-blocks use our instructor’s patented Micro-Adjustable Depth Control System™ – he sells them for $30/set. What a deal!) Here are the legs after mortising. In...

09-15-2009 04:22 PM by aaronmolloy | 1 comment »

!http://(Mortise 2)!I was at a local joinery the other day so I decided to pick up so lumber for the lamp table project I was thinking of doing. I picked up some 2×2 american white oak. I went home that day and cut the oak down to 4 18inch lenghts for the legs. I marked the mortises out using a mortise gauge and decided to route the mortises out as i have never tried this method before. ( I’m a hand tool guy ) For this I though I’d go out ant treat my self to a new router bi...

Christmas Project 2009 #2: Mortise and Tenon of the Game table legs

12-04-2009 02:14 AM by dryhter | 1 comment »

In this video I show how I mortise and tenon the legs and aprons. The first step is to evaluate or critiquing the pieces, I feel each piece on it”s own has positive and negative aspects that need to be addressed. Once evaluated the pieces can be shown for the best possible presentation of the project. If you are just starting out in woodworking it is a good idea to keep tract of your decisions to see how they affected the overall project. Evaluating and critiquing is a valuable ski...

02-11-2013 05:28 PM by Lumberpunk | 1 comment »

Ok a couple of busy days, probably gonna take a day off today to be with the family. Here is one side of the top brace scribed for routing the curved side of the lap joint. and here it is after routing, the edge was done in four very careful passes with a 1/8th bit and then the rest was hogged out with a 3/4 straight bit after this pic. After doing six of these my shoulders were pretty tight. Then I took to it with chisel and file and very slowly snuck up on a nice tight fit....
