Building the Hexagonal Cocktail Table #4: Final Steps: Top Trim, Shelf, and Finish

12-28-2016 11:17 PM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

Top Trim The top assembly “sandwich” is trimmed by 1/8” thick poplar slats that rest on the outer edges of the leg tenons. This trim and the legs form what is a metal frame on the original table. I cut the trim from the same board I used for the legs. I attached it much like a trim carpenter installs base or crown moulding. I temporarily placed the top backer/triangles subassembly on the base, used a miter saw to cut the first piece (nibbling away until it was exactly ...

Building the Hexagonal Cocktail Table #3: Legs

12-28-2016 10:31 PM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

The table’s legs are tall and thin, with a diamond shaped cross section. The outward-facing edges are beveled to 120 degrees to match the angles of the top hexagon’s vertex angles. After puzzling over how to cut those angles, I found a simple solution: make each leg from two triangular prisms, each with a right-triangular cross section. Then I could cut each leg half with a single 30 degree rip on the table saw. I was able to cut all of the leg parts from a 3.5” wide x 0....

Building the Hexagonal Cocktail Table #2: The Top Assembly

12-28-2016 06:49 PM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

The top assembly is a three-layer sandwich approximately 1 1/8” thick. The bottom layer is 1/2” thick MDF hexagon. I had never cut a hexagon before, so I searched the web and found the excellent article Cutting Hexagons on a Table Saw by Don Snyder (a fellow LumberJock who goes by StLouisWoodworker) to use as a starting point. The large size of my hexagon (23 3/4” across the flats) made it difficult to follow the article to the letter, but I did the best I could. The ...

Building the Hexagonal Cocktail Table #1: Introduction

12-28-2016 04:22 PM by Ron Stewart | 2 comments »

This series of blog posts outlines some of the construction details of my Hexagonal Cocktail Table project. As I mentioned in the project description, this table is a reproduction of a commercially available table. The original has a metal frame and legs. My table is all wood and MDF, and attaching the slender legs to the relatively thin table top proved to be quite a challenge. I’ll cover that more in a later post. Earlier this year, I retired from my position as a software engin...

Might turn out okay, but...

10-15-2016 02:31 PM by Dave Rutan | 14 comments »

I got a text from my wife who was out at a meeting this morning. Says she has some carpentry work for me, a rustic dining room table. Now I know full well, this is not for us. We don’t even have a dining room! So that means this is to be paid work! I only hope the customer isn’t too picky on details and such. Those of you who have read my profile know that tables are about as big as I go for projects. I have a small shop and usually do big stuff outside. It’s Octob...
