I’m reposting this for all your benifit, if there are any problems with seeing the pictures please let me know so I can fix it. This should pretty well explain and show you how to make one of the cups below, with the exception of doing the hand carving or any lathe work. All that is necessary to make these is a table saw, sandpaper, chisel, and a hammer. Oh, and wood, you always need wood.

Here’s another practice version of a “Real Asian Style” table. I tried to use traditional Chinese joinery (or at least what I think would be traditional Chinese joinery). Design is as simple as I could possible think of, not waisted as it really should be, no moldings. Material are a few 2×4’s that probably don’t quite have the right proportions.

Good day. I now have the wood for my new workbench. My friend (who is also building a workbench) and I, drove to Exotic Woods in Burlingtion Ontario a few weekends ago to get the wood for our benches. I have regular hard maple at 8/4 and 12/4 thicknesses. The piece of walnut in the picture I got from a friend and I will be using it for my sliding dead man.
