Barnsley Reproduction Build #25: A Bucket O’Buttons

11-12-2015 04:32 AM by stevo_wis | 4 comments »

There are 22 buttons that hold the table top to the frame underneath the table. They are approximately two by two inches and have these nice little bevels and wedges on the edges. Rather than work with very small pieces, I decided to make strips of them, do what I could on a machine, cut them apart, then finish each small piece by hand. The x’d out areas need to be hogged out and then cut between buttons. My radial saw seemed to be the safest and easiest tool so that I coul...

Router Table #1: Cabinet and surface

10-20-2015 06:10 PM by BobFrankly | 1 comment »

It doesn’t take very many attempts at routing smaller pieces of wood to see the benefit of a router table. Midway through my Walnut Lamp project, I got some ideas floating through my head that couldn’t happen without the router table. So my once router table cabinet, now wood scrap holder, is once again a router table cabinet. I started with a rectangle 1×2 base joined by glue and pocket screws, some casters, and a plywood shell: I was mostly using leftover ply from other ...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #24: Assembling and Gluing the Undercarriage

10-12-2015 02:59 AM by stevo_wis | 3 comments »

I have glued up the undercarriage, which includes everything below the table top except the buttons holding the top on. The top of the leg where it is mortised into the top frame, and the mortise and tenons where the stretcher goes through the legs are draw bored. I applied glue and used a draw boring alignment pin to pull the joints as tight as possible and then also put a clamp across the joint to hold it when the pin is removed until the dowel is driven through. I glued and assemble...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #23: Assembling the Stretcher

10-05-2015 02:54 AM by stevo_wis | 4 comments »

It has been a couple of months since I have posted but I have been slowly coming along with the Barnsley Table. The stretcher had a lot of carving and bevels, but they are finished. It had some interesting joinery issues as well. The stretcher has almost the identical joinery that the upper frame has. I made one change here to simplify construction and that was to not have an acute point on the tenon. The pencil is pointing to the squared off tenon. Doing that made the mortise much ...

Fliptop Tool Stand Video

10-01-2015 05:16 PM by GodofBiscuits | 5 comments »

I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and because the house I live in is a rental and only temporary, I can’t build cabinets like I’d like and or don’t want to put in the effort to build something that I’ll just have to remove and take apart whe...

Happy day for me as the I can see the final product coming together. After I let the stain mixture set overnight I break out the lacquer. Over the last few days I have been applying and letting dry and re applying. I have a total of 4 coats of lacquer. Here is was the almost finished product looks like… My wife loves it so that’s good…but I am pretty critical on myself so looking at it I can see a few things I wish I would have done differently, but overall im...

Farmhouse Table Build - Construction Grade Lumber

09-13-2015 07:00 PM by Chris McDowell | 12 comments »

You can see how I built the table in a video here: My sister-in-law and her husband recently moved back home from out of town. They have a dining room, but no dining table so she asked me to build one for her. She picked out some plans online and they are free from She told me not to change a thing. The only things I did different were related to the construction and assembly. Otherwise, it looks just like the one in the p...

Asssembly / Outfeed Table #1: Starting from the ground up

08-16-2015 08:00 PM by Freakazoid | 0 comments »

This is my first blog ever, so there are some boring up front details I have to get out of the way. I have been in my house for a little over 8 years. I was fortunate that the property came with two garages – one attached to the house and the other detached from the house. Both are two car garages, and the detached building was immediately claimed as my shop space. My shop area went through several iterations over the course of the next six years, mostly because I did not have...
