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 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...

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?
