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

07-15-2017 10:12 PM by 85GoCards | 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...

At the moment the legs are being carverd out of solid walnu...

Mongo: my first real workbench #8: Joinery: working out the legs

05-10-2017 02:58 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

Mongo’s legs are by far the most complex pieces, except perhaps the vices. They are responsible, obviously, for holding up the table surface but also for tying in the aprons and supporting the lower shelf. Clearances have to be made for the outermost ribs and bonus: there are no 90° cuts! Yay! But this is why I made the gauge in update 6 and it was used extensively. First step was to establish the top of the tenon at the correct angle. This is a through cut but I don’t have ...

I am looking for someone who can make a steel/iron band for a dining room table I am making. Any ideas? It would be 2” tall 1/4” thick and 226 long. I want the metal to be stippled and rounded on outer edges. Anyone have any experience with this?

Hello All, In 2016 I didn’t get to work in the shop as much as usual. Very busy at work, and involved with a big demolition project the rest of the time.

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...
