Mission Dining Build #5 - Table Apron, and final assembly

12-07-2011 10:51 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

The table assembly is now complete. Since the leaves store in the table, the aprons needed to be hinged. I used short piano (continuous) hinges from hardware The hinges are 4.5” long, and lock at 90 degrees, similar to jewlery box hinges. I used inset rare earth magnets to lock the hinged aprons in there in-use positions. Felt lines the frame, which creates a nice little nest for the leaves. The table extends to accept two 12” leaves v...

Quarter Sawn White Oak - repair/refinish/new leaves #2

08-15-2011 09:53 PM by rsain | 1 comment »

Just finished up the leaves. Still going to do the undersides, but not too much work there – just a quick coat of 2lb cut shellac to seal it off. Here are a few more pics. Like I said previously I’m VERY pleased with how this shellac finish turned out. And the last step of hand burnishing is a must. I compared the two leaves (one with and one without) and there was a noticeable difference in smoothness of the reflection between the two. So – I went ahead and rubbed out th...

Quarter Sawn White Oak - repair/refinish/new leaves

08-13-2011 11:53 PM by rsain | 2 comments »

Greetings all, Wanted to post a little about the recent project. It’s not done yet – but wanted to go over some details here. First: Project is an early 1900’s dining room table. Needed some repair work and needed two leaves built since the old ones were not original and not well done. Client wanted me to refinish the entire table as well. He also wanted a color match. I decided to do the leaves first so I could do the color match before I stripped the whole thing. ...

Machinist Chest #1: Machinist Chest

01-28-2010 05:52 AM by DocK16 | 12 comments »

Woodsmith Magazine has challenged me again with an interesting project. This machinist chest involves numerous types of joinery including 1/8 inch tenons to hold together 3/8 inch boards to make the drawers, box joints and stub tenons and raised panels. I hope to take you along thru the cut list, assembly, and finish. Looks like an interesting project requiring exacting specifications. Here is picture of the iWoodmith Issue showing a pic of the project. All the pieces of milled 1/2 an...

finally getting close to the finishing room ...

04-01-2009 05:33 AM by kordwood | 9 comments »

I’ve been working on a big Stickley designed double bookcase for way too long, but I’m closing in on it now. Finally put the tongue-and-groove back boards on, all the shelves are done (middle shelves are fixed, top and bottom shelves adjustable … it was too tall for me to get a full top to bottom shot, so you can’t see all the shelves in this pic), it’s all glued up and ready for some final sanding. It’s coming out fairly well, if I do say so myself.But it&...

A small conference table - the build #3: The top is ready for sanding

01-29-2009 02:41 PM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

From my blog: Whew! Today was time to glue up the two halves of the table top. I trimmed each of the two halves on the table saw, using the crosscut sled. Leaving each half slightly over final length, I tackled the glue-up. Sandy came to the shop to lend a hand, as I did not want clamps moving and lumber falling to the floor. Three hours late I removed the clamps, scraped the dry glue, and completed preparations for sanding tomorrow. I will drop off this panel at my friend’s shop...

Wood Magazine Display Case #7: Getting it finished

01-04-2009 11:29 PM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well the finishing is coming along nicely, I forgot I needed to do the door. So the case has 3 coats and now the back of the door has 1. Got my side of the garage cleaned up so that I can move the door over to my side and the SO can get her car in the garage again. I still have to order the glass and mirror. Gonna give lowe’s custom order a try as well as a place in dagsboro near Bodies…we’ll see how it goes.
