I am working on a sofa table as a house warming gift for some friends. It has a Cherry top and a Jarrah base. The top is done, and I have almost finished spokeshaving the legs (taper and curve). Almost everything has been done with handtools.

Here is the top so far.

Some of the mess while preparing the base.

The table design is influenced by Jim Krenov’s work. Recently I received a smoother from JK and I had much pleasure in using it here.

More later..

Welcome to LumberJocks! Great looking table! You should post on projects or blog it, if you haven’t already. Your link to your website didn’t work for me, I don’t know why?

Welcome to LumberJocks. Great looking table.

You need to fix the .asp on your profile page. It just .as

Your signature line is OK.

Thanks Karson. It appears that the line was too long, and the last letter was being cut off. So I converted the address using Tiny Url.

I think my project (above) should be transfered to a different forum. I now have to work out how to do that.

A few tools:

Chamfer plane. This is a bevel up orientation in Jarrah with a 15 degree bed. The butterfly “knob” is deliberate so that adjustments may be made quickly. The blade is extended after each run until the profile/depth is reached …

This is a dovetail plane. I used a derelict skew rabbet plane as the base.

Old Woman’s Tooth (OWT), or router plane.

For prerspective ..

Stairsaw…

Small carcase/tenon saw (10” crosscut) ...

Small bowsaw for dovetails ..

Small infill bevel up smoother from a Stanley #3 (a fantastic performer!) ..

30” razee jointer in Jarrah (60 degree bevel down) ..

A set of carving knives for a friend …

A dovetail marking knife and awl set ..

OK, enough for now. There are more if you are not bored! There are tutorials on my website to make some of these tools.

Regards from Perth
