Outdoor "Coffee" Table #3: The Wood

2561 days ago by Dorje | 5 comments »

Well, my daughter and I went down to the hardwood lumber store on Monday and I immediately changed my mind on the kind of wood to use. Why so fickle? Who knows. The Lyptus that I was originally going to go with, only came in 4/4 and 8/4…I really wanted to use 5/4 to get 1” stock for the top. Just wanted more mass (it was also cheaper!) So…18bf of 5/4stock and 6bf 8/4stock of Jatoba/Brazillian Cherry is what we left with: Straight grain for the most part: C...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #2: Next (baby) steps

2563 days ago by Dorje | 10 comments »

I picked the wood I’m going to use for this project; I’m going to go with Lyptus. I should get down to the lumber store sometime this week… Also, I made some drawings of the top, side, and end. Drawings really are limiting! I’d like to draw this in sketchup, but can barely remember how to draw a rectangle. Actually I can draw a rectangle, but don’t even know how to type in the dimensions I want rather than have to drag the exact distance!!! (Bob Babc...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #1: Just an idea

2568 days ago by Dorje | 14 comments »

We need a low outdoor table for drinks and food, etc., Something that would tie into the design of the chairs that we already have. My first inclination is to do this table in Western Red cedar (it’s sort of the default everything-outdoor-wood around here), but I keep thinking it would nice to try something else. Again, this is another project that I intend to do this summer, but I do have to side the house, and seal and paint it if I’m lucky (before the rains come again and ...

My Math teacher might be proud of this

2573 days ago by John Nixon | 9 comments »

With the aid of my motorized router lift, I can create medium to large circles on the router table easily. Forget that router trammel or bandsaw circle jig, with this method, you can make circles on your router table with no dust and no fuss. This method is safer, cleaner and more accurate than many other methods. If you have a router table with a miter slot, check out this setup! The scale is based on the pythagoream thoreom. THe hypotenuse of a right triangle is changed to alter ...

The Secret Birthday Present #2: Jenn... it's ready for Sunday!

2586 days ago by MsDebbieP | 19 comments »

well, here it is… Martin says that mistakes are just opportunities to become smarter.I must be brilliant now! The table is pretty much finished. Might throw a layer of wax on top of it. We’ll see. Lots of “oops” and “huhs” and “how did that happens” in it but it’s a table and it’s made by me and it’s a present.. and she will love it.

The Secret Birthday Present #1: JENN DON"T LOOK

2590 days ago by MsDebbieP | 14 comments »

My daughter’s birthday is fast approaching and I have had several ideas in the past month of what to make for her. I have gone from simple, to complicated, and now .. it’s somewhere in the middle. Actually, since it will be a variation of the Challenge Table, it really should fall into the easy category but I’m not that naive or confident to think that I will whip this together with a frustration and challenge or two. The first difficulty was deciding what to make it o...
