Bandsaw Outfeed Table

02-12-2021 08:30 PM by Bstrom | 9 comments »

Been meaning to make this for a while to better handle rough stock during resaw. Finally broke down and got it done – it’s not permanently mounted. Uses a pair of clamps to secure it to the back rail of the Grizzly fence. Can be moved along the table to position. Measures 12” wide and 24” long. Please let me know what you think.

My Woodworking Journey #4: My First Table From Two Years Ago

02-03-2021 01:49 PM by Gerald Etto | 2 comments »

Throwback to September 2018, when I made my first table after enrolling in Steve Ramsey’s The Weekend Woodworker course. There are 101 flaws with this table, but I remember feeling good at the moment. I made something, instead of consuming something. That meant a lot. I have since recycled this table into a cyclone dust collector cart, but I did use it for over a year. My daughter did her artwork on it when she was 7 and got paint all over it. I cherish those memories and perh...

Forge table #8: Undercarriage

01-10-2021 09:03 PM by Dave Polaschek | 24 comments »

I started the day making four new stretchers for the undercarriage. Where these would’ve taken me all day if I had done them last week, I’ve gotten more confident at the lathe and take bigger cuts and I finished roughing all four in an hour. For each of the stretchers, I used the hollow auger to make one end a half inch. This end will go into the leg. Then I trimmed the other end to the right length and used the tapered tenon cutter to make it taper. I used the matching reamer t...

Round Table for School Room #1: Trying to cure Incomplete Project Syndrome

01-01-2021 02:24 AM by Ocelot | 9 comments »

I had 2 weeks off from work and determined to make a table for the homeschool room. I’ve emptied the full dust collector twice in a week and broken 3 clamps, so something is happening. 3 days remaining. More glue up tonight. We will see if I make it! -Paul

Old Projects #12: Build a Tile Topped End Table Tutorial

12-22-2020 01:08 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

I made several variants of this table, all with the same tiles. If you think the oak prototype is nice you should see it in jatoba (I’m still looking for more pics) Oh yeah, its been 20 years since this original build post and that table is still going strong. One of the bottom slats got trod upon years ago but otherwise it is holding up well. Its been used so much that the pattern on the edges of the tiles has begun to wear off. It’s had no end of spills and slop on it with li...

Old Projects #11: Folding Game Table

12-21-2020 09:49 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This is a four foot diameter folding top game table. Table in Up Position The top is red oak, while the base is white ash. The popsicle base is half lapped with bandsawed bun feet. Table in Down Position The hard part was the pivot mechanism without any metal parts. A piece of closet rod acts as the pivot with a dowel acting as the locking pin. Sold it in a consignment shop for $600.

Old Projects #5: Jatoba Hall Table

My ex got it in the divorce. The brass ornaments at the top of the legs cover a botched slot. This is joined with biscuits. Notice the odd leg design. I was trying for something different. Entry hall table The picture doesn’t do it justice. Detail showing sunburst riser

Forge table #3: Cleaning up the top

10-06-2020 05:04 PM by Dave Polaschek | 14 comments »

This morning I decided it was time to get the top of the table a little closer to done. I started by sawing off the excess on the ends. Next up was scrubbing across the grain to even out the slight undulations where I had clamped the board together. Forgot to take a photo. Oops! Once that was done, I started drilling the holes for the legs. I want them to go through the center of the battens, about two inches from the edge of the table. They’re going to be straight vertical, with so...
