Live Edge Chery Coffee Table from the Beginning #1: Choosing a Board, Initial Flattening

1 day ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

Four months ago I asked some advice on how to construct a waterfall leg on a live edge table. I’m finally beginning construction after several things got in the way. The first step was finding the right board. The nearest sawmill to me (19 vs. 45 miles one way) was clean out of live edge pieces. I called the next closest sawmill and he was looking at $150-200 for a slab, so I decided to take a “chance on two 1 boards on CL on Craigslist. They had been sitting in a barn for g...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

1 day ago by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #4: Learning some more new skills, completing the main box

3 days ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I haven’t been taking as many pictures the last bit, but we’ve made a lot of progress. We we neared the completion of the main box, we needed to make some bevels on the bottom trim. Rather than resort to the router, we went for the more hand finished look, making the bevels with a plane.They came out really well, and after assembly, he also beveled the corners as you’ll see below. It all turned out very nice. Next came the glue up of the bottom trim pieces and the inst...

I’ve veen in the flooring industry by marriage for many years so although I have a fairly good knowledge base on ...

10 days ago by Gene Howe | 28 comments »

Recently, there was a bit of concern expressed regarding a board that was posted as a project. it got me to thinking (a rare occurrence) that some folks might not understand or appreciate the dedication, skill and work that is involved in the making of a board. Hence this blog/tutorial. First, lets define the term for those not familiar with boards. Most authorities agree that a board is a flat slab of wood or other material for some specific purpose. For our purposes, we’ll limit th...
