Thorsen Table contest #7: rails into aprons

05-23-2007 05:46 AM by scottb | 11 comments »

I have these 2 rails to resaw into 4 aprons. Cutting off the trim detail (that held the window panes in place) allowed these to fit in my small bandsaw. Unfortunately with this project now well underway, and really close to the deadline, I’m find I may be trying too many new things, with this project. I didn't feel like removing the 2x4 MDF zero-clearance top to my tablesaw to resaw these with the fence I have set up for the standard top (as is my most practiced method). So I tho...

"....of OutHouses and Septic's Galore" --by RusticWoodArt

....of OutHouses and Septic’s Galore ....and so while walking through this break in a stone wall, i spied into the life of one such as i, where have all your sayings of yesterday gone, when one such as i walks into your scrapbook of life imagined images…. —-no leaf falling to the earthen floor of my domain, screamed so loud from it’s palace of branches throne, as when it settled to fathom the amazing amassing of culture exchange, that is being written as i speak...

New Works In Progress --by RusticWoodArt #4: "Bench Dogging After Greene and Greene"

04-28-2007 01:50 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Bench Dogging After Greene and Greene And so we now move on to the getting of legs, and in all your getting, be sure to take what you can use. Moving now to the fourth bay of my barn on the south side, I have a bay filled with lumber from past accumulated workings of wood projects. Looking through the rows of some stickered and some stacked lumber, I soon found what I thought would make some good legs for the table bench dogs. The pine I decided on using was left over from a barn door ...

New Works In Progress --by RusticWoodArt #3: "Wood Stories...."

04-26-2007 05:34 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Wood Stories: ”Bench Dogging Before Greene and Greene” ....ah yes, and then it all starts coming back into focus, as i relax my grip upon this place of fields and greens, where imagination comes calling and selling herself to the highest bidder of foolish dreams…. —-and i realize now, that i am one of those foolish dreamers with pockets full of golden star dust, who could never quite adjust to walking this place of earthen dust, by giving up my right to silent...

Thorsen Table Challenge #1: It's a start

04-24-2007 01:41 AM by roundabout22 | 5 comments »

The whole reason I joined Lumberjocks was because I wanted to get some information about the Thorsen Table Challenge. After spending countless hours here I decided I better at least attempt a table. SWMBO said that I could only build a table if the wood choice matched the bedroom furniture (The Wife’s Dresser). So sorry Obi, but it is going to be made out of pine. I decided to add some Cedar for a contrasting wood Just to do something different I went with a brick laid patt...

Thorsen Table contest #3: getting started

04-23-2007 04:05 AM by scottb | 17 comments »

One of my first ideas for this challenge was to make a “green” table – as in recycled, not painted. After weeks of pondering, and ultimately ignoring the problem of where to begin, and more importantly, what to use, I remembered that I had this door sitting in my shed. It may have been original to the house, but has been collecting dust for the past 5 or so years since we bought the house and replaced the exterior doors – this one had dog door cut out of it and was ...

"PROVIDERE" --by RusticWoodArt #5: Providere, a Work In Process

04-20-2007 01:59 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Providere, a Work In Process Well I finished roughing out a shape of the last of four legs last night with the drawknife, and I thought I would post a picture of where the ‘in the process’ of Providere now stands. 1) Cherry backsplash, needs to enter into it’s hand sanding phase, starting with #120 grit….and ending with some slurpies…. 2) Table top, needs to be worked some more on sides with a timber slick to get a better trueness…. 3) End board...

Thorsen House #2: The details are a little rustic

04-19-2007 09:37 PM by dennis mitchell | 17 comments »

The photos aren’t the best, but here is my update on the Greene and Greene table. Yes I went rustic. I got thinking (think…think…think) and I became interested in translating some of the details to a rustic style. I have a very old cheap band saw so I’ve not done much re-sawing. I’ve never done a breadboard end. Notice I book matched the top. I’m using pine from an old corral and a few pine branches from my firewood pile for the legs. The pegs are well drie...
