« Part 1: The Design Part 2 of Starbuck's Coffee Entertainment Center series Part 3: After all this time... »

Hi everyone!

Well, it’s taken forever it seems but I’m finally in high gear on this project! We’ve had a lot going on recently, but it’s nice to be back in the sawdust.

I’ve drawn up a full scale template of the Starbuck’s table and started by rough dimensioning all my lumber. I decided to use mortise and loose tenon joinery for most of the case construction. For the center stiles at each end, I used integral stub tenons to fit into the dado required for the maple panels. Here’s some of the first pieces.



Here’s a layout of all the end pieces.


I also tried my hand at veneering a walnut skin to an MDF form for the first of two curved pieces required for this piece. I wasn’t sure how well the veneer would bond to the MDF, but it seems to have worked beautifully. I was nearly to the second knuckle chewing on my fingertips waiting for the glue to dry on this one!!


And the end results so far!



I’ve got a long way to go still, but things should be moving along faster now. I’ll keep everyone up to date with the progress. Thanks!!
