A Thomas the Tank Engine table #2: 15 mm short!

07-21-2008 01:34 PM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

Well had a great couple of days in the shop finishing up -almost- Paul’s table. The edge moulding I was going to put around the table top machined well, it even looked good until I started mitreing the corners and cutting it to length. Side 1 went okay, side 2 ikay, side 3…problems. The end of the moulding and the last moulding are 15 mm short. I’d neglected to factor in the width of my mouldings when I measured out the lengths so I cut the third side short. I think I...

Please don’t be too critical on this one. This was my first video and also my first attempt to inset an inlay. I had a lot of hours in this table and was very nervous. You may ask, “Why the inlay”. I just wanted an accent. - – Skip – -

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...

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.
