Salvaged lumber table top #1: Found lumber in the woods

09-27-2018 08:19 PM by RBurke83 | 5 comments »

So I bought a house about a year ago and while walking around the property I found this fairly large piece of lumber that was partially sunken into the forest floor. After more inspection I decided to remove it today with the goal of a massively thick three slab dining room table top. The board is, after cutting off about 18” that was damaged at the end, 21’3/4” long, 14.5” wide, and 4.5” thick. After I determined it wasn’t cedar (I sometimes build kayaks), i cu...

Sculpting a little table with wings

07-26-2018 10:34 PM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

A little interesting shaped table. I did most of the curves on the table saw and my jack plane. It’s made from maple and the blue pigment may or may not be ground up Smurfs .If you’re interested in how I made it….. you can watch the video or read the recap below Now I realized that the shape of this little table may not be to everyone’s liking. When the client explained to me wanted I was even skeptical if I could build the thing. The shape of the top and lower shelf seemed like ...

Hello All! I’m posting this in order to get some ideas, life expectancy, and general feedback for my first wood project. Anything you can see that would be an issue, may have worked well, or you would have done differently i’d be very interested to read. I’d like to introduce you to my project and a little about myself: I have not previously done any woodworking. This project was brought up by an opportunity and lots of Google… This is an attempt at a ...

Shop Projects, how “Nice” should they be?

02-10-2018 05:56 AM by IantheTinker | 31 comments »

I am building an outfeed table for my table Saw, just a short one to extend over the outboard motor. Then I will hinge a folding table onto the end of the short one. I am doing this to save on dedicated space while allowing options for assembling s9me larger upcoming projects. My only issue is that I keep gett8ng hung up on how nice these things need to look. I see the guys on the YouTubes making these really nice outfeed table with melamine surfaces and oak trim and whatnot. I am on a seriou...

Making a table, on a balcony. #4: Cutting the table top to size

09-25-2017 12:15 PM by shaunmza | 4 comments »

Progress is being made! Here you see the results of an afternoons work, the table top has been fixed to the base I made, then planed with a hand plane, and cut down to the size I wanted, plus, I cut notches out for the rear legs of the table. Let’s take a look how ended here. No photo’s of me attaching the top to the base, or using the hand plane to knock down edges, sorry about that.At this point I have attached the top to the base, roughly planed the top and am get...

Making a table, on a balcony. #3: Gluing the top, with some makeshift clamps

09-22-2017 09:25 AM by shaunmza | 0 comments »

One of the ways I justified making a table to my wife was that I could make it cheaper! Or is that how I convinced myself… meh, whatever. Now I can count, knowing full well that I would have to buy tools JUST to be able to cut the wood, it’s obvious that if I took all the money spent on tools, that it is going to be a verrry expensive table! So let’s ignore money spent on tools! Problem solved Or so you would think, thing is I am quite tight fisted and hate spending...

Making a table, on a balcony. #2: End of day 1, planks cut to length.

09-21-2017 04:48 PM by shaunmza | 1 comment »

I ended up having to go back and buy another length of the the planks and the wood for the legs. No workbench, so we make do with what we have! 2 stools support the wood as I measure, mark and get ready to saw. Rough idea of how it will look, I bought the cheapest of the cheap planks, and will be using a hand plane to knock down the edges a bit until they match up. Another photo, because I can! This was in day 1, my back was shouting at me like crazy! With no bench, mu...

Making a table, on a balcony. #1: Getting started, the plan and the wood.

09-21-2017 04:42 PM by shaunmza | 2 comments »

I enjoy making stuff. I think it is the creative process of having something in your mind, then taking action and bit by bit, seeing it come to life. As a teenager I shied away from wood, as it was to me a very unforgiving medium, if you don’t cut very straight it’s there for you to see, every time you look at it.Steel on the other hand, was more forgiving, as I could weld up holes. I used a bead of welding to cover up my inability to cut in and straight more than once! ...

The Table #1: We've Come So Far...

07-15-2017 10:12 PM by SawMueller | 0 comments »

Where to start on this sucker? I suppose the beginning is as good of a spot as any… Around six months ago, I said, “Wife, I shall craft you a table fit for a Queen.” Well actually, it was probably closer to, “Yeah, yeah, I said I’d make a table when I get a chance.” I don’t have my 3D modeling program at work, so I relied on my crafty Excel skills to sketch up a rough design for the table. Now as much as I like to fancy myself a woodworker, I...
