Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #2: Filling Knots and Cracks, Butterfly Inlays, and and a Start on the Base

12-19-2014 04:56 PM by Marshall | 1 comment »

I’ve made some progress on the kitchen table in the last few days. I started filling the knots and cracks in the top with epoxy. This is a messy job, and its a pain to get all of the bubbles out. I’m starting with the bottom side to perfect the technique. I burned the epoxy in one place where I held the torch too long trying to get the bubbles out. That just made a ton more bubbles that wouldnt come out. I also practiced making butterfly inlays on some scrap wood. Thi...

Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #1: Bookmatched Walnut Slabs

12-09-2014 12:24 AM by Marshall | 5 comments »

My wife wanted to buy a new kitchen table. After much convincing, I was able to convince her that we should spend that money on a walnut slab rather than buying a set from a big box furniture store. I picked up this slab from a local sawyer before I decided on the final design. Usually, I’m much more methodical, and work out the design well before I buy lumber, but I couldnt wait for her to change her mind :) Lucky for me, my neighbor owns a cabinet shop with a large Timesaver...

Building a Houseful of Furniture #2: Kitchen and Family Room

03-23-2013 01:20 AM by DustyMark | 3 comments »

Watch this video that gives a quick tour of the furniture I’ve built for my kitchen and family room. The rooms share an open space and this video shows the placement of the furniture in both areas. This table and chair set was a major project completed in two phases. The first phase included the first four chairs and the table. I completed the first chair in Jan 93 and the fourth in Oct 93. The table was completed in Nov 93. The second phase was the fifth and sixth chairs co...

Redwood Table #2: Staining

02-05-2013 06:44 AM by WoodenSoldier | 2 comments »

After some advice from other wise lumberjocks I decided to flatten the top by sanding it with my belt sander instead of trying to pull it flat with angle iron. It still has a very slight sag in the middle but it’s hardly noticeable and won’t affect the function of the table. I doubt the customer will ever notice unless they pour a glass of water into the middle of the table to see which direction it goes. I sanded it to 220 and then went back and filled a couple small bubbles...

Redwood Table #1: Redwood burl slab table- Advice needed

02-02-2013 08:18 PM by WoodenSoldier | 4 comments »

Hey guys,I’m building a kitchen table out of a 3” redwood burl slab and so far it’s coming along nicely. The legs are being carved from glued up poplar and power carved with an angle grinder. Its coming along well so far (though the grinding is creating buckets of very fine dust). I laid the top on the legs last night just to see how it was looking.I had filled in a lot of the gaps last week with epoxy and last night I was sanding it to try to level it out a little ...

Kitchen Table #1: A Tale of Two Tables

08-19-2012 03:19 PM by hammcrafted | 0 comments »

Those of you who have read The Anarchist's Tool Chest may find the following story familiar. It was only after this project was underway that I realized that my life had strangely paralleled author Christopher Schwarz’s for a moment. It’s morning. My wife and I are starting the day: sipping coffee, stirring oatmeal and wondering whether we should wake our nearly three year old. Our eleven month old is keeping us company in the kitchen of our 1 1/2 bedroom apartment. She is sitt...
