Reclaimed Glory #10: Rescued a lonely solid Oak side table with a broken leg - Patch him up? or Cannabalize?

304 days ago by palaswood | 5 comments »

Made my rounds today after work, and came up short on all fronts, until I decided to hit a spot that usually yields nothing but a few nuts n bolts, although those are nice (but I have so many now). But alas, someone threw out this solid oak side table with one leg broken off about 8 inches up. Its a shame I didnt find the leg piece… So whats the plan LJs? Do I try to repair this little guy, it would make a solid little table – its all oak construction. And I did bring ...

The stump

452 days ago by matthewcressey | 1 comment »

So today I found a stump today and it was just begging to be made into a side table. So now it’s in my front yard and I am attempting to come up with a plan. First on the list is to have it kiln dried. Than comes flatting and sanding the top than making the legs whatever they turn out to be. So first question is kiln drying it ok? If not why? Second question how do I keep the bark on the stump? Ok third question what is the best way to flatten and remove all the gouges in the...

What joinery to use?

479 days ago by Dracombe | 10 comments »

I have this new project I am working on and I am wondering what joinery should I use? Most of my projects I use either dowels or pocket holes but I feel this project requires a more evolved kind of joinery. I have attached a picture of the plan I am working on. It’s not finished yet and no joinery is reflected on it. I would consider myself as a beginner but I have a few projects under my belt. You can see some examples at http://www.dracombefurniture.com to judge my skill level. The pr...

Video Series: Outdoor Arm Chairs and Side Table

590 days ago by JSB | 4 comments »

The past couple years in spring my benches have sold well. A few people asked me to make a video showing how to build them so I said sure and decided to make a video series. This series is for a slightly different design to make an arm chair and side table based upon my bench plan. I’m new to making videos and the entire project was filmed with my phone so I apologize for the weird camera angles and volume. Im far from Marc, David, or Norm but I had fun making the videos, hope you enjoy...

Queen Anne Side Table #5: Drawer Dovetailing and Cockbeading

1471 days ago by ShannonRogers | 1 comment »

I’m a little late getting this up for my LJ brethren since it has been up on my site for a week now. Sorry about that guys. Here I build the drawer and add my faux cockbead to the front. You will often find a scratched bead like this on backcountry or souther period furniture. The full cockbead took more time and therefore was more expensive. This was another option to achieve that beaded effect for the less discerning customer. Enjoy the show!

Asian Arts & Crafts Night Stand #1: Catching up...

1539 days ago by azwoodman | 9 comments »

So I’ve been working on this project since January. Its been a really fun and very educational experience. There have been lots of “firsts.” This semester I have been taking a Woodworking Class at my local community college. Although the class isn’t really geared toward any particular set of woodworking skills it has given me an opportunity to build a project under the supervision of a more “seasoned” woodworker. When the class began we were instruct...

No electrons were harmed during the building of this table. This was great fun and even more affirmation of the time I spent building my workbench. Enjoy the video.

Queen Anne Side Table #1: Part 1, The Design

1548 days ago by ShannonRogers | 0 comments »

This build is part of my participation in The Wood Whisperer Guild build project. We are building these tables in the fight against cancer. Many of my fellows are donating or selling them with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society and our guild master Marc Spagnuolo is donating $5 for every completed table. Personally I will be giving this table to a good friend who lost her daughter to cancer recently. I hope you enjoy!

Sapele side table progress

2042 days ago by Greg3G | 15 comments »

Ok…I was thinking of doing some stringing or inlays on this but after talking with my wife about where we wanted to put this, I let that idea go. I wanted to keep it a bit less formal. This series of photos are after the glue up and with one coat of Karson’s Oil/Poly blend recipe. It is still just a bit on the damp side. The top is not attached at this point. I will probably give it one more coat of the oil/poly blend then give it 3 or 4 coats of shellac and rub it out. I want ...
