Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #2: Step-by-step Tabletop Continued

757 days ago by Donowoodworks | 0 comments »

I got a bit more time to work on my tabletop today and it is coming along! I think that the longest part remaining is going to be cutting the butterfly dovetails to keep the cracks from spreading. One edge on the bottom is a mess. It will take some time, but I plan on at least 100 years of service out of a piece of furniture when I build, so it will be worth it. I want to keep away from straight lines in this piece, so I used a curve to draw the edges of the table. The curve is adju...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #1: Step-by-step Tabletop

759 days ago by Donowoodworks | 4 comments »

I have been itching to make a table for a while now. Not just any table, mind you, but a live-edge table made from a slab or two. When summer began I told myself that I would do it, and while I was browsing the internet looking for wood slabs, I came across a gentleman who had literally hundreds of slabs sitting in his back yard, waiting to be sold.I looked up the address and saw that it was close to some family members, some seven hours of driving away. “Perfect excuse.” I tho...

SoZo Coffee Shop Table Top Series #1: Coffee Shop Table Top Project

951 days ago by Doug McPherson | 26 comments »

Some friends of mine run a local Coffee Roasting and Espresso Bar here in my area (Michigan), and they contacted me about building six new table tops for their coffee shop. For the design, we decided to inlay their company logo in each table. I’m using Maple, Walnut and Cherry. I decided to start with making the star. To save some work, I made just two variations, but made them thick enough so that after the glue up, I could slice them in to multiple st...

Maple Burl Slabs

1004 days ago by WoodLe | 1 comment »

I got a chance to get back to the sawmill today after not being able to cut for 2 weeks. Was anxious to see what was inside that hard maple log that I picked up a couple weeks ago. So I started with the one which had the most burls. That first slice on a log is just like opening a birthday present and I was not disappointed! I got 7 slabs and they are all 2 inches thick and 78 inches long. The main log that this one came out of was about 39 feet long with burls all the way up! I cut th...
