Conference Room Table #1: Table top help

04-29-2016 11:24 PM by RPG | 0 comments »

Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...

State Fair Series #2: From the Jaws of failure

04-24-2016 10:04 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, I spent some time yesterday laminating 2 wood choices together. Today I set myself up for some precision cutting. I didn’t use Klaus’ sled. You see I experimented over and over again getting my depth just right. My index was exactly 7/8 of an inch. Heck, half my time was spent on the math. I’m pretty sure most of my issues today are because I didn’t build a 45 degree sled with an indexer. I know the worst problems I had were because I didn’t buil...

End Table #4: Rails, supports, kickers

04-22-2016 03:11 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

Today I installed the rails by cutting 2 17inch beams of oak for the front page part of my chore. I also made kickers for the top entry where the chore goes in. I made holes and screwed them on each side. As you can see in the picture above. I also made 45 degree triangle supports for my top and legs. I cut holes for them and screwed them in on each side.

Plant stand #8: Final assembly

04-05-2016 11:32 PM by BJODay | 1 comment »

Here is a shot of the top and the shelf. I taped and marked the shelf because it will be notched around the legs. I measured from the center out. I didn’t want to work from one side and push any play all to one end. I wanted to cut on the band saw but that would have meant marking the top and bottom. It is too long to cut it all in the band saw without flipping it over. I thought this will be a perfect opportunity to screw it up. So instead I cut it just a little shy using a jig saw....
