Anybody have any clever ideas how to build a doorway like this with large rounded corners? I wish there was a giant router big enough do do this kind of thing.

This post is an overview of the build. If you want more info please visit my personal blog post. Building a Table by Re-Purposing a Chandelier Watch it be built on YouTube I started out with the chandelier my wife hated. I used a cut off wheel to remove anything that wasn’t going to be part of the base. I aligned the legs using a scrap piece of plywood clamped in the vise Used Tie wire to hide the holes where the electrical wire came through. Painted wire a fra...
Before I jumped into making the breadboard ends I decided to do some reading and get a little more explanation on wood movement and what role breadboard ends play. Excerpts from Popular WoodWorking magazine website: “Boards expand and contract at a greater rate across their width than they do along the length. How much they expand and contract is more a matter of species and final resting place than anything else. Also, wood tends to expand and contract more actively toward the bark ...
I didn’t really spent much time thinking about how the desk top would be built. I planed and jointed the walnut along with the maple and cherry. I proceeded to glue up the panels using a biscuit jointer. With a top this large (39×72) I used 4 – 10” wide boards and glued them in pairs then glued the pairs together. I also clamped the ends and middle to keep the board from cupping from the clamping pressure. From there I glued up the final 4 board panel. After...
Once again with weather and other commitments I haven’t made a lot of progress. Also the fact that I’ve been devoting the time I have worked on this on the router end has slowed me down. Over the last few weeks I got the opening for the router plate and the miter track cut out, got the router, plate, and track mounted. It didn’t take too long to get that done. The rest though has been chewing up much more time than I anticipated. Other than a large bottom drawer to hold rout...
The next step in make my Shaker candlestands was to figure out how to hold the spindles/posts to cut the dovetail mortises for the legs. After turning it over in my head for a couple of weeks, watching some videos on youTube (include 3 different New Yankee Workshop episodes where Norm makes pedestal tables), and trying a few options, I finally decided to make a fixture to hold & index the post at 120° and use a router to cut the mortises . Here’s the fixture: The post...
