Behind-the-scenes tour - how we make flooring

02-03-2020 05:57 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Here is a behind the scenes tour of us making some red oak rift and quartered hardwood flooring. If you’ve never seen the process before it’s kind of cool to see (at least I think so!). This link will take you to my YouTube channel. Why, you ask? Because I cannot figure out how to embed video on LumberJocks anymore (it used to work for me). If anyone knows how, please let me know! Thanks-Steve

Small Projects #8: Jatoba and Marble Plant Stand

01-27-2020 10:21 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This is a project I made about 20 years ago. It’s out of jatoba with a “Tito’s Green” marble floor tile inset into the top. The wood is finished with Johnson’s paste floor wax and the jatoba has darkened to the lovely burgundy color you see here:Jatoba Plant Stand Marble is porous and watering spills will be absorbed and evaporate. Being a floor tile instead of a wall tile it is thicker and heavier than a wall tile. The unit was quite heavy as I just planed...

Small Projects #2: Small Oak Tool Tray

01-27-2020 12:16 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

The better half doesn’t always say anything but I know my leaving small hand tools on her coffee table irks her to no end. To preserve the peace I made this little (12” x 8” x 3-1/2”) oak tool caddy to toss my stuff in one place instead of being scattered to-hell-and-gone. I had a couple of 1/4” x 3-1/2” x 36” pieces of store bought (BORG) oak kicking around and this seemed like a good project. I cut the boards into six 11-3/4” pieces. The...

Drop Leaf Table #11: A Cowardly Finish

01-17-2020 05:51 PM by Tom | 4 comments »

I am pretty wimpy when it comes to finishing my projects. It stems from a total lack of knowledge and experience. In the past, I have used oil based stains, brush on polyurethane, oils, shellac, etc. Some woods do not take oil based stain very well. I did a cabinet in maple which took me a long time to build using my hand tool methods. I tried to stain it to match another piece and it was a blotchy mess. I had to rework the finish for days to get a decent look. Staining poplar has also...

Drop Leaf Table #8: Winterthur, Hinges and a Quick Drawer

01-06-2020 06:03 PM by Tom | 3 comments »

Really starting to wrap up the work on this drop leaf table. Over the holidays, I visited Winterthur for the Yuletide mansion tour. It is really interesting to see all the furniture on display. Meanwhile, they have a nice gallery display of the Dominy workshop and some furniture pieces on display that were made at the shop. One of the items was a “Breakfast Table” aka Pembroke table. Somehow, I missed a picture of the actual table which was similar to mine, but a bit more ref...

Loft Dining Table

01-05-2020 08:33 PM by BuildItYourself | 0 comments »

HelloToday I show my new project Loft Dining Table. The whole is made of oak wood. Painted with nitro stain and Italian varnish for countertops. The table base is made of a 60×40 metal profile. In this project I was learning to weld for the first time (I think it went pretty well). The base was powder painted black matt. Table dimensions: 1500×900mm and is folded out to 2500×900mm. Look my video

Drop Leaf Table #5: A Few Things before Glue

12-08-2019 10:04 PM by Tom | 1 comment »

With the table joints done, I have a few things to take care of before glue up. I need to taper the legs, cut out for the swing arm and put in the notches for the screws for the top. I did the leg tapers first. They taper down to 1” square. Layout is an important part for me. I really need to stop each time and make sure I am tapering the inside of the legs. Pretty straight forward, I saw and plane the tapers. It is a lot of exercise! When I get near the end of the sawing, I add...

Gaming High Top #1: Introduction & Planning

11-28-2019 03:38 PM by whope | 0 comments »

Hi Folks!Earlier this year, I decided I wanted a bit bigger project than I have done in the past. I thought it would be fun to do a gaming table and decided that it would be a high top style made out of Walnut. My son found out what I was doing, so then it became two tables. Historically, every project I’ve done has had to been done twice in at least one aspect. Usually more. :) To counter that, I decided the start with less expensive wood, like White Oak, to make my big mistakes the...

Drop Leaf Table #2: Building the Frame

11-26-2019 10:49 PM by Tom | 2 comments »

I am going to remake the old drop leaf table using hand tools that I think are appropriate for the age of the piece. I have not made a table like this before, so this will be a learning experience for me. It will be nice to have the old table as a reference. I decided to use oak boards from the home center. They are kind of pricey, but they are nicely machined and planed, so I can concentrate more on the joinery and less on the bull work of preparing the material. For now, I will just st...
