Nakashima Night Stand part 3 #1: Nakashima Night Stand. part 1

It was nice using some harder timber for a change. Tasmanian Blackwood that I found on our river bank after a strong wind in 2009. I also changed from my usual 1:6 angle for softwoods to the preferred 1:8 for hardwoods.Very pleased with the results!!!

Nakashima Inspired Coffee Table #5: Legs are complete and ready for finish

681 days ago by PittsburghTim | 2 comments »

I had the day off and spent it doing some final fitting, sanding, and assembly of the legs for a natural edge walbut coffee table. The slab was 2 1/4 inch think and has supplied the wood for the entire table. My friend wants a satin, hand-rubbed finish and I plan to use General Finishes Satin Oil-based Arm-r-seal. I will do the legs and the underside of the top first and then finish the top after final assembly. Thanks for looking, Tim PS I couldn’t think of a much better...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #2: Step-by-step Tabletop Continued

720 days ago by Donowoodworks | 0 comments »

I got a bit more time to work on my tabletop today and it is coming along! I think that the longest part remaining is going to be cutting the butterfly dovetails to keep the cracks from spreading. One edge on the bottom is a mess. It will take some time, but I plan on at least 100 years of service out of a piece of furniture when I build, so it will be worth it. I want to keep away from straight lines in this piece, so I used a curve to draw the edges of the table. The curve is adju...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #1: Step-by-step Tabletop

722 days ago by Donowoodworks | 4 comments »

I have been itching to make a table for a while now. Not just any table, mind you, but a live-edge table made from a slab or two. When summer began I told myself that I would do it, and while I was browsing the internet looking for wood slabs, I came across a gentleman who had literally hundreds of slabs sitting in his back yard, waiting to be sold.I looked up the address and saw that it was close to some family members, some seven hours of driving away. “Perfect excuse.” I tho...

Conference table / work bench #1: Wenge and White Ash Table

2505 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 32 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted any projects, so I figured I’d better do so before you all forget my name. I previously posted a Library stair unit, and this table is the accompaning piece of furniture to that. The client needed a conference table, but he also wanted a workbench, as he was prone to dismantel his computer occasionaly, in name of improving it. He was a fan a George Nakashima, so he wanted the table fashioned in his style. My design seemed to ...

A Visit from "Kev", a Fellow Lumberjock

2620 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 5 comments »

Yesterday, I enjoyed an afternoon of getting to know a fellow lumberjock, “Kev”, otherwise known as Kevin Larcom from Wichita. He has a design for a Thorsen Table Challenge project, but didn’t have any wood. So, I set him up with some walnut and maple. I’m anxious to see how it comes together by the end of the Month. I loaned him my Sam Maloof, George Nakashima, Mira Nakashima, and Krenov books, so look out world, he can’t help but motivated to make dust no...
