Pool Cue Rack #1: Drawing, Buying Wood, Some Dimensioning, and Dovetails

06-25-2012 06:00 AM by bobasaurus | 1 comment »

My machinist friend has done a few nice favors for me, including flattening the sole of my Stanley #8c, so I agreed to build him a pool cue rack for his Brunswick pool table if he paid for the wood. I started out drawing it all up in sketchup (with my very limited CAD abilities, but it does help to get dimensions, etc): I then made a trip out to Stan’s Hardwood in Longmont, CO to get some lumber. This was my first visit, since the sawmill near my house moved away recently, and ...

Journey into Woodworking

07-03-2011 06:16 AM by sdwrage | 11 comments »

Seeing as this is my first post, I probably should elaborate on who I am and what I do for a living. My name is Justin Lonas and I am a Web Application Developer (i.e. guy who works on websites). I have been doing web development for over five years and, until recently, was content with the work that I have done. It wasn’t until I moved from Florida back to my quaint home town of Athens, OH that I really started getting a feel for where I wanted to go in life. Growing client expectation...

Sooner or later, it will happen in yours´, unless….... .... yes, unless you cover your pool. Since autumn started in Northern hemisphere, I imagine that someone may be interested in covering the pool, as I was last April.

Arts and Crafts Style Pool Table - Video Series #5: Corbels for the leg system

07-26-2007 01:47 PM by John Nixon | 5 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I Blogged for help here at LumberJocks (Link Here) with what size / shape /scale to make the corbels for the Pool Table. It was a great discussion and also a nice collaborative process with all who participated. There’s a great group of woodworkers from all skill levels here, and it was nice to hear to various viewpoints. The corbels are finished, and I think they came out great. The next installment in the video series covers the design and construction of t...

Another design design for the pool table

07-19-2007 03:29 AM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

I’m back for some more design advice. The discussion / feedback on the corbels was great, and I thank all who participated. Next topic for design consideration is the addition of a stretcher between the legs on the pool table. Some things that are up in the air: Whether to add a stretcher or not. The legs are stout enough that I don’t need it for stability, so it’s purely asthetic. If a stretch is added, should I do a through tenon look where the stretcher comes ...
