"Grace" My latest Halltable

Here is my latest work that I now have my students replicating in various forms which include alternative drawer set outs and using recycled timbers from head boards from old beds.
One of the learning outcomes was learning how to use the shaper or spindle moulder as we kiwis refer to it. They get to shape 14 legs and make over 26 components for the rest of it. The drawers are hand dovetailed and the top took me a couple of days to sort out.
Hope you like it. I sure do!

As always Andy “blown away” to create this is special, to create in such a way that first year students can also make it is inspired.

Thanks Mark Man. Treasure your comments mate. This is made from NZ grown plantation Radiata Pine. It has a home made white wash over it to keep it from going yellow. Finished over with Mirotone lacquer. A very good NZ product.

what is your secret recipe for the whitewash? Mirotone makes excellent products, but you have to buy them in 20L pails, AFAIK. I find it hard even finishing my 1L cans before they spoil. was it spray finished?

I’m curious to know how you assembled the drawer pulls. Did you cut a slot for them? If so, what did you use?

This is really a nice design, Andy – and glad to see the radiata pine being used. now that untreated radiata can’t be used for buildings at all anymore, developing a market taste for it is good news to us small forest growers.

Thanks lumber jocks your very encouraging. Here is the secret to the stain. It really isn’t rocket science. Just go to your paint shop (not resene they arn’t allowed to give or sell you any) take a jar and ask for some white pigment from the paint mix machine. I added mine to lacquer thinner, but you can try it with turpentine. It just takes longer to dry but spreads by hand easier.

The handles I ran the stopped groove on an overhead router. Easy to make a jig for a standard router.
