Watching wood dry. Soon this will be turned into two California redwood dining tables.
An update while I wait for glue to dry.Managed to get the second half of the table top glued today. Wasn’t hard, 3 boards glued in two glue ups, a few biscuits to keep it all aligned. More to come….
Not a fan of blogs as I don’t need any more computer time, but figured I’d make my first one (maybe my last).So where to start? SWMBO has been asking for a new kitchen table to replace an existing $100 press board & Formica piece of junk.I haven’t made much from Cherry in many years, and have been accumulating a few 4/4 boards from CL thinking, if I found some decent 8/4, then I would start the kitchen table. Several months ago, I learned that one of the local cabi...
I bought my Craftsman table saw about 6 years ago now and it’s been a good saw as long as you took extra special care to ensure the horrid fence it came with was straight each and every time you moved it. The fence system that came in these saw is appalling to say the least and down right garbage when compared to a good biesemeyer style fence. Last week using the saw, I moved the fence and spent several minutes trying to get it straight so I didn’t ruin the beautiful piece of curl...

I got a Ridgid 3550 table saw a few years ago off Craig’s List.I like the saw, but I’ve wanted to do an outfeed table.Since the saw is on rollers I couldn’t go with anything too big.Also the saw is shoe-horned into it’s storage spot in the garage, so size was a consideration. And I wanted the fold-down to cover the motor to stop me from snagging on things rolling it in and out of the shop. I also wanted to use just materials I already had on hand (read scraps and cu...

We left off last time and I had a hole in my table with a blank insert, getting me back to a functional dining room table. Step 1: Install some T track. I originally thought I would just make a long fence and clamp it to the edge of the table. It would be a pain in the neck, but I didn’t think it would get heavy use. Instead I saw a lot of videos and commercial fixtures that use T track, and it looked amazing. I would be able to use hold-down clamps, using a fence would be easier. Ba...
Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...
The Work Table is fully assembled and ready for finishing. For the past few months I have found it nice to have a work table in the office for doing some small projects or for packing items for shipping. I have been using a card table. My new Work Table will now take its place by tomorrow night. I will be staining it tonight or tomorrow morning. It is still too cold outside to do much and the garage is not much better so I have to see what I can do about putting a poly over the...
