Ideas from my shop #3: Cherry End Tables: How To

05-15-2008 12:17 AM by David | 8 comments »

May 14, 2008 ~ Happy Birthday Samantha This is one of my favorite days of the year; the day my grandaughter Samantha was born. It seems like yesterday but it was really 10 years ago. Of course the other favorite day is Emily’s B-day and she is 3. So I digress but thought today would be a good time to finally put together this sequence on these Cherry End Tables. Our Daughter wanted me to make her two end tables out of Cherry and liked the design of two that I made from oak...

Walnut Coffee Table Construction

05-11-2008 02:16 AM by Woodhacker | 13 comments »

When I returned to woodworking several years ago my nephew had been talking about a particular style of “coffee” table he’d seen online somewhere and was describing it to me. Since he’d just announced plans to marry, I told him I’d make him, and his fiancée, the table as a wedding gift. He showed me some online photos of the table, which I used as the basic, general design plan. The joinery I chose is original but the style was taken from the photos. This piece is the result: ...

A walnut sofa table with Jacobean influences

04-30-2008 03:36 AM by John Fry | 17 comments »

First I want to thank everyone who visited and responded to my last two project blogs; A small table that took a whole lot of work A veneering extravaganza! As always I welcome your comments AND critiques on this latest project. This commissioned sofa table’s concept was borrowed from a late seventeenth century round gate-leg table. The client wanted it in a dark walnut with “antique shading”, and asked that the back of the table be as detailed as the front so it could be u...

Music Table

04-21-2008 01:21 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 2 comments »

Saw a wild video the other week on MAKE: Magizine’s blog – I’m gonna try to make this at work. So far, this is my plan: I’ve got base built, and next will be creating the removable instrument inserts – I have two maracas, a tambourine and one snare.

Work In Progress #1: Patio Furniture

03-05-2008 07:28 PM by Ike | 2 comments »

Alright, I have decided that I would like to build my own patio furniture instead of buying a set from “the big box stores.” I took the design idea from a table I saw at one of those stores, but it is slightly different, also I didn’t like the chairs that they had with the set, those are still in design phase. here is the table’s design that I have drawn using google’s sketch up: I’ll continue to work on the chair designs, but I was sort of inter...

First Table #1: My first table

01-29-2008 11:46 AM by Boon | 6 comments »

This is table i’m working on, I know its a little “grand” for a first timers table, but I figured if I can do this table, it will make doing future tables much easier. I’m a child of the 80s and i grew up around 70s and early 80s furniture and if you remember, it was all massive and looked like wood. I love huge furniture still and can never just let a good floor model tv go to waste (i made a router table out of one and a fish tank out of another). So without rega...

2 x 4 Project #1: A one entry blog

01-08-2008 08:56 PM by CutNRun | 13 comments »

Yesterday, I posted a taper jig project. The taper jig was used in my entry for the 2×4 Project. Before the taper jig was made, I had to locate a 2×4 to use. This was relatively easy. I knew a local lumber yard carried very high quality Douglas fir dimension lumber for use in finish work. I located a completely clear, tight grained 8’ board. The only downside was it cost substantially more than the typical big box store stud. Oh well, this is for FURNITURE, not being st...

From chess board to table

12-04-2007 10:46 AM by oscorner | 10 comments »

Hello everyone! A while back a great LumberJock wouldn’t take no for an answer and generously mailed me some veneer. After much reading, blogs on the LumberJock’s and his guidance I made this chess board with the lovely veneers. The question was… what will I do with it? After much consideration I decided to make a table upon which to attach it to. Unlike most of you, my plan was in my head. Kind of learn as you go type of venture. I started of wanting to try and...

Tools #1: Ezee-Feed

11-22-2007 05:47 AM by Thos. Angle | 6 comments »

I had been wanting one of Lee Jesberger’s Ezee-Feeds ever since I first saw it. It looked like a great solution to the problem I was having getting a decent job of cutting sheet goods.Carleen and I fought the last cabinet job with a 4 roller stand and the new outfeed table I put on the saw. It was certainly better than the single roller stand we had been using. The out feed table and the new big workbench really took care of the out feed side but getting it started was still a two man(O...
