Sofa Table from tension wood #4: leg attachment

06-16-2018 06:38 PM by cathyb | 4 comments »

You may remember I added a filler piece to my legs to completely fill the cavity, except at either end. There I wanted to added a stronger dowel to give me more strength on the foot and a dowel underneath the table top. Before I get to work on the dowel, though, I want to create an attachment for my legs to the table top. For I had to glue the two pieces of book matched koa together to create the top (and also the shelf). I used dominoes to strengthen these joints and assist in gluing. ...

Sofa Table from tension wood #3: Table Legs

06-16-2018 06:10 PM by cathyb | 4 comments »

When I left off, I was in the prep stage for this sofa table. Last weekend , I was trying to find a good choice for my aprons and inlay for the leg. After finally selecting a suitable board, I constructed the legs, glued the table top together, created the attachment for the legs and began my finish work. In this blog we will talk about the legs. The legs are four sided laminate of the koa and walnut. To do this, I laminated the koa to the walnut. Then once dry, I cut the joint for my...

Cherry Refreshment Table #1: Breadboard Ends and Tusk Tenons

02-02-2014 06:40 AM by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...

Projects #2: Reclaimed Redwood - Sofa Table

03-27-2011 02:23 AM by drsongs | 2 comments »

This was my Saturday project. Should’ve been pretty simple but it actually gave me some problems. For one thing it ended up being about an inch shorter than I had planned because trying to get it to sit flat turned out to be the biggest challenge. I know most of you have been there at one time or another. Ok.. just a little off here… oops… that was too much etc. etc… Here’s some pics. The legs and top pieces are cut and ready: I used a clamp to hold the le...

Constructing a Modern Sofa Table - The Video

02-14-2010 11:16 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 21 comments »

Share the Love This modern sofa table was built for donation to a charity fundraising auction. This slideshow was played to generate more interest in the table by highlighting the construction process. Generating more interest generates more money for the charity. The auction was a bit disappointing overall, but my table brought in the more money than anything else. Funds raised at the auction help support programs for people with developmental disabilities. The winning bidder ask...

Woodworking For A Good Cause

01-18-2010 02:34 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

My wife, Rita, manages a daily program that keeps adults with developmental disabilities busy. She works personally with these individuals and we see first hand how this program enriches the lives of the participants and their families. Most of them are affected by down syndrome. We choose to support this program every year with donations for the fundraising auction. This year I donated the red bamboo sofa table. This was originally made with the intention of it being a donation. ...

A walnut sofa table with Jacobean influences

04-30-2008 03:36 AM by John Fry | 17 comments »

First I want to thank everyone who visited and responded to my last two project blogs; A small table that took a whole lot of work A veneering extravaganza! As always I welcome your comments AND critiques on this latest project. This commissioned sofa table’s concept was borrowed from a late seventeenth century round gate-leg table. The client wanted it in a dark walnut with “antique shading”, and asked that the back of the table be as detailed as the front so it could be u...
