The Craftsman's Path #21: Queen Anne Side Table - Leg mortises, knee blocks and posts

01-04-2008 07:12 PM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

I’ve been progressing on the legs for the Queen Anne Side Table. In my last post, I had shaped the feet and reworked the heel transitions on the legs. This left the tasks of adding and shaping the knee blocks, cutting the mortises and trimming the posts to final size to be done. There’s more on this with a bunch of pictures of the process in this post on my blog. Thanks for reading!

The Craftsman's Path #20: Queen Anne Side Table - More leg shaping

12-23-2007 05:47 PM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

I was out of town last weekend for a family wedding so, progress on the table was stalled a bit. I got some more time in the shop yesterday and went to work shaping the legs for the table toward their final state. I had started this process before my trip but, I was not quite happy with some parts of the effort. The trip away allowed me to think about how I wanted to approach making changes for the better. You can read about my progress at my blog where there are a lot of pictures of the ...

Shaping a handrail transition

12-17-2007 12:57 AM by miles125 | 5 comments »

This is my attempt to show you how i made the handrail transition i listed in my projects page. What i started out with was a full size drawing of the handrail profile. I then decided i was going to do the rough hogging out of material by using a core box bit in my formica router. So if you look at the drawing you can see how i drew in the actual router bit size and its depth location to tell me how far from the edge of the rail to go, and how deep to go. I then fashioned a fence to ...

Hall table #1: A Hall table for my wife - Thorsen Variety

My wife was starting to get ready for some Christmas decorations. She notified me that she’d like a Sofa table to place against the wall in the kitchen to put decorations on. She also stated a requirement that it be like the Thorsen table that was built by my son Dave. for the Thorsen Table Challenge that we had earlier here on . His table has aged some since Dave made it and it now sits in the kitchen where my wife puts her purse when she comes into the house. It’s wh...

The Craftsman's Path #19: Queen Anne Side Table - Turning and shaping the feet

12-04-2007 06:47 PM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

After band sawing the legs to rough shape in my last post, the next steps in developing the legs were to turn and shape the feet and to smooth and mark them for final shaping. This was an interesting process. There’s a good description and lots of pictures in the latest post on my blog. Let me know what you think – thanks for reading!
