Exercises in Artisanship #23: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 6 THE FINAL

710 days ago by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

This table is special I suppose because it is my first. My shop being set in all natural conditions sure made this a spread out project, there were some truly brutal hot and humid days that let this sit and wait for a better time to work with it. I wanted a piece that had touches of rustic warmth supported with lines of a Renaissance rhythm. To stand back and see the entire composition in it’s thought out form, from some ragged sketches to this on my living room floor is a nice reward for ...

The old time woodshop journals #15: Mr. Ludwigs key and the log cabin

731 days ago by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

I always find it amazing that no matter what we plan on any given road in our lifetime there are no guarantees of where you will be or how it will work out…. only that you are here right now and alive. Finding the old angled key dowel the other day from that old trestle table (to help work on my table) woke up some thoughts and visions of many years gone by. I decided to get into my truck soon after that feeling with camera in pocket and take a few snapshots of the cabin where I r...

Exercises in Artisanship #22: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 5

731 days ago by jjw5858 | 14 comments »

Sawdust, shavings, and a lot of water in these heat wave shop exercises has brought me to my newest updates on this Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table. This project has been a lot of fun and also filled with challenges along the way…..the biggest is the heat we have been enduring these past weeks….YIIIKES 100 degrees??......bring back the fall!....lol. So when I have been able to sneak out and get some more decent temperatures to work with I set about my task at adding side piece...

Exercises in Artisanship #21: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 4

744 days ago by jjw5858 | 12 comments »

Hey friends, back here in the Old Time Wood Shop with some more exercises…..or,.... trouble to get into…..lol. This time it was setting up a top for my Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table. After some mock ups of various boards to view thickness, width, etc. I finally decided to just give a go at working up a top with a thick piece of laminated construction pine. This would be all new territory for me….never did a table, never laminated together boards to make a top. Might as...

Exercises in Artisanship #20: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 3

756 days ago by jjw5858 | 9 comments »

Shavings, sawdust, chisels scattered about…and the joyful noise of the mallet sending the message from hands to tenon to mortice….this round of the build contained much learning and honest work. Looking back through these last 2 blogs…..I feel encouraged and seeing my skills grow, sure there are some mistakes but I really see the value my time has bought me with my with study and self challenge. I would say in review of the last two years playing with all of this woodshop...

Exercises in Artisanship #19: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 2

760 days ago by jjw5858 | 9 comments »

Well here I am once more working on something that’s a first for me, seeing things as I go and gaining more experience with each shaving thick or thin. These exercises in artisanship have taught me a great amount of many do’s and some don’ts…lol For this project I wanted a piece that I could have in my living room that had a feeling of energy and a renaissance vibe to it. I have had the opportunity so far to laminate, cut and smooth out my first set of legs. This...

Trestle Table #2: The Trestle Table Base is Almost Complete

764 days ago by Loogie | 1 comment »

I’m on vacation from work this week so I’ve been able to get quite a few hours of work in the shop. The base for this table is from a big maple tree my next door neighbor had cut down to put a pool in. I cut mortise and tenon joints for the leg-to-foot joint, which I will also draw-bore, and a notched bridle joint for leg-to-brace joint…http://www.gunpowderwoodworks.com/blog/2012/6/22/trestle-table-base-is-almost-complete.html

Exercises in Artisanship #18: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 1

Hello everyone, an extremely humid day today with around 82% humidity and 95 the high temp, but somehow the spirit of an evening of creating was to be had….lol. My shop has little more than a fan or heater….so this was going to get warm…lol This is a project that I have been wanting to do for a while now. I have always enjoyed the extreme creativity of the Rennaissance period and I thought it would be a real challenge and adventure to have a go at my version of a trestle ...
