Trestle Table #5: Cambered Cauls

09-04-2016 01:55 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

In order to make sure the table top I will be gluing will be flat and so I can keep the thickness I have milled to separate board, I am making cambered cauls for clamping. I want the boards to retain their milled thickness of 13/16 inches so I can cut curved edges to the table top. I read somewhere during my research that softwood lumber is okay for clamping cauls. I bought three 2 by 12 by 8 feet redwood planks today at Lowes. I selected the planks that where very straight. Also most ...

Conference Room Table #1: Table top help

04-29-2016 11:24 PM by RPG | 2 comments »

Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...

My 1997 Delta Unisaw 36-815 Refurbishing #2: Working the table top cast iron

01-18-2016 06:48 AM by Holbs | 6 comments »

What I found that works for me: ROS & 3M pad for rough work. I swap to 320 then 600 wet/dry sandpaper for hand sanding with WD40 as lubrication. I will use denatured alcohol to clean off the top then wax later as I still have the miter slots to work on next time. I was smart :) Cut a 55 plastic gallon trash bag in 1/2 and laid ontop of my new work table.As it arrives in my garage: First general pass with my ROS & pad: After ROS & pad: After razor blade use to remove ...

A coffee table made from an old fire pit

06-01-2015 12:56 AM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

View a video of this build here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16o0Ic0RPro We had an old fire pit where we had taken its top off and were using it on a different base in the backyard. The old base was taking up space in the shop, so I was going to throw it away, but then had the thought to make a table top for it. I used cedar and teak oil finish since I had planned on using the table outside, but we are actually using it inside now. The cedar was green so there was a good bit of warp...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #16: Making the Table Top

02-17-2015 03:25 AM by stevo_wis | 3 comments »

My friend suggested that we take a intermediate cabinet class at the local technical school. I had attended such a class many years ago, and even though we both have nice shops and have been woodworking for a long time, we signed up. The class workshop is almost brand new and full of state of the art machines including several saw stops, a 10 inch jointer, an unbelievable sliding table saw, and a 42 wide belt sander. The instructor is good and the students all seem great and all are at...
