Well it has been some time that I worked on this table but there are things that have priority when you work for a living .I have installed the outside veneer on both halves of the base and started today with the inside veneer . The iron seemed the biggest obstacle and as I mentioned previously using a heat gun as a alternative got nixed because of the expense involved .I designed a round sheet metal base for the iron using some thin sheet metal with steel wool inside to give it a flex...
Answering the question – veneering with Old Brown Glue Let me know if you have any questions
Used the old trick of a straight board and a router to get a glue-able edge on the Panga laminates for the top. One set is gluing already and we’ll move on to the next tomorrow. Pulled open the form and revealed my curved inlay stock for the top also. I was worried that the aluminum would be too springy, but the glue held just fine. I only need to get two arcs out of this, so there’s plenty of room to goof the first cut.
I decided to make a 4.75” chess set and board. I knew it would take a while and it has taken me about 30 minutes per pawn to turn them not including 5 coats of wipe on poly with dry time between. So far I’ve turned all of the white pawns, which are curly maple. This is the first one I turned and it’s looking pretty rough, but I’ve gotten much better since I started. It all started with these turning templates that I made. I found the design for the pieces on the web...
We have been hired to make a dining room table from a 30’s model and slide it on the Biedermeier side. This is not our usual traditional furniture making but it is also a nice change in the usual styles we work on. We started with a simple design to show the overall idea Brick laid apron in pine for a light top Poplar “plaque to glue under the top. it will host a metal plate to bolt the lower part to the top The base is made out of beech, for an heav...

Hi all, been quiet on my own stuff lately mostly because I’ve been busy trying to figure out how I’m going to do this particular project. The project (as seen below) is a Knick-Knack shelf that resembles a window with a mirrored back. The only part keeping me puzzled it how I will do the curved front. Here is a pic of the sample I got off of Google: The original was painted/milk paint maybe, but I’m going for African Mahogany. Not sure how everything is going to w...
Last time I posted on that project I was steam bending my mouldings. The columned were veneered in a previous post. Since this post we had another job to do a video on veneering column with Liquid Hide Glue that we posted on our Old Brown Glue playlist on youtube. It is uploading at the moment so go see it later if you are interested in learning how to veneer columns, we are pretty proud of it. The columns were turned with groves to allow for black rings. T...
