Thorsen Side Table Contest #6: Not up to standards, but finished none the less!

2616 days ago by JonH | 6 comments »

This end result is a nice little side table, but I must confess, it is not up to my standards. It will make a nice table along side the couch. I’m finishing in haste to get the subscription to PW, but I will continue my challenge and improve this table more at a later date. My son (age 3) loves to hang out in the woodshop, so he can help me. Bottom line, the baby girl goes to the doctor on time, I get my challenge finished, and my son gets to help me finish it next week! Legs, si...

Thorsen Side Table Contest #5: UGH! Haste makes ugly marks on the top of my contest entry.

2616 days ago by JonH | 5 comments »

I trusted that the bit for my pocket hole jig was correctly set. I was wrong. When I attached the top to the sides and legs, here is the result. I like the way the table looks, but the holes on top are enough to make me pull out my dwindling hairs. As a result, I had to resort to nailing the top to the legs in order to finish the contest and take my little angel to the doctor.UGH! The smaller holes are from the brad nailer.

Thorsen Side Table Contest #4: The 11th hour is at hand!

2616 days ago by JonH | 1 comment »

Ok, Here’s the deal. Its 12:35pm. My daughter has a doctors appt at 3:45. I have procrastinated my challenge project to the point that I had to abandon my idealistic goal of glueless wedge tenons. I do reserve the right to rechallenge myself at a later date on that joint. I will get it done!The legs are clamped up and nearly dry Here's the top. Pocket holes have replaced wedge tenons...Yes, I'm in a hurry. The sides are small, but mighty!

Thorsen Table #4: Down to the Wire

2617 days ago by cheller | 3 comments »

I am going to cut it very close on this. If I didn’t have to work tomorrow I’d be fine, but I do have to work. I expect it’ll be 9 or 10pm before I get pictures posted – and it’s possible the finish will still be wet! This project has pushed me and has brought out the perfectionist in me. I cut the legs twice – because I wasn’t happy with the mortises on the first set. And given the opportunity I might recut a couple of the other parts as well....

Thorsen Side Table #6: Finally...the project is complete

2619 days ago by fred | 7 comments »

The Thorsen House Side Table project is finally finished. The goal of this Challenge was to motivate new expression of the traditional table and to find other ways to interpret the work. I have benefited from this challenge by enhancing my knowledge of the Greene & Greene style. I have read more about their work in the last few months than I have over the past ten years. I found other ways to incorporate the Greene & Greene style in my interpretation and perspective of the Tho...

Thorsen Table contest #8: pile of small parts

2621 days ago by scottb | 9 comments »

I should have made a paper template of the parts for this table (actual size). Until I finally cut everything down to size I didn't really see how small this table really was, and with the off cuts I have lying around (had I been more careful early on) I could have made a pair of tables! Lesson learned there. Oddly I did this with my first box in order to figure out my cut list (and how to best maximize a tiny piece of cherry I used for it. If only I remembered. Anyhow, I'm feeling ...

Thorsen Table contest #7: rails into aprons

2625 days ago by scottb | 11 comments »

I have these 2 rails to resaw into 4 aprons. Cutting off the trim detail (that held the window panes in place) allowed these to fit in my small bandsaw. Unfortunately with this project now well underway, and really close to the deadline, I’m find I may be trying too many new things, with this project. I didn't feel like removing the 2x4 MDF zero-clearance top to my tablesaw to resaw these with the fence I have set up for the standard top (as is my most practiced method). So I tho...

Thorsen Side by Side LJ / PW Challenge Karson #5: The second of the twins. The Popular table.

2625 days ago by Karson | 6 comments »

In my blog I started to talk about my next set of Thorsen Greene and Greene Tables. I called them my Twins.. The blog talked about my use of Holly wood and Popular wood to make the set of twins. Both woods in their normal state are quite light. Holly as being classified as the whitest of woods and Popular as an Ivory color for sapwood and usually a light green tint in the heart wood. Here are pictures of normal Holly and Popular The Holly is in the left and the Popular on the right of t...
