Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #2: Step-by-step Tabletop Continued

634 days ago by Donowoodworks | 0 comments »

I got a bit more time to work on my tabletop today and it is coming along! I think that the longest part remaining is going to be cutting the butterfly dovetails to keep the cracks from spreading. One edge on the bottom is a mess. It will take some time, but I plan on at least 100 years of service out of a piece of furniture when I build, so it will be worth it. I want to keep away from straight lines in this piece, so I used a curve to draw the edges of the table. The curve is adju...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #1: Step-by-step Tabletop

636 days ago by Donowoodworks | 4 comments »

I have been itching to make a table for a while now. Not just any table, mind you, but a live-edge table made from a slab or two. When summer began I told myself that I would do it, and while I was browsing the internet looking for wood slabs, I came across a gentleman who had literally hundreds of slabs sitting in his back yard, waiting to be sold.I looked up the address and saw that it was close to some family members, some seven hours of driving away. “Perfect excuse.” I tho...

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #24: Drawbore, Glue Up, and Starting on the Tabletop

768 days ago by RGtools | 22 comments »

The process of drawboring has been mostly covered but I felt like giving a few tips in case this is in your mind to do on your table. The main thing is to make sure that the holes are spaced so they miss each other and are close to the middle of the tenon (mine could have been closer). Also make sure that the hole you drill is not going to be under the shoulder of one of your rails…simple mistake that makes assembly kind of hard. Your holes should be as close to the rails as they can be witho...

Thorsen Table Challenge #7: Going for the Top !! Also pegging joints info.

2551 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 33 comments »

The last couple of days, I’ve been working on the tabletop. I mortised out the breadboards, & cut the tenons. I kind of fell for the cloud lift theme, so I incorporated into the top. You might want to call this a sideways cloud lift. I decided to try something from the latest issue of Fine Woodworking, They call it draw bored pegging on the breadboards. This is something I’ve never tried before, so we’ll see what happens. Check out my latest Video, hope you ...

The Top clamped up.Now I have to go out, & start with the breadboard ends for the Tabletop. This is one of the Shelves, using my new Irwin Clamps
