Princess Daybed for Daughter #7: Shaping and Glueup

07-21-2018 01:09 PM by JohnMcClure | 0 comments »

When we left off, everything fit together but the legs were still blocky and square, and overly long: I decided to taper the legs toward the outside corner, bringing the foot down from 3” to 2” square, and chamfer the inside corner of each post.Rough out the taper on the bandsaw: Then plane down to the line: Finished taper: All that planing makes a pile of shavings: Crosscut the posts to length too. Cut them 3/4” above the top of the mortise. Time now to glue ...

I made this tapered leg table to have a place to work, study and edit. The top is made of Sapele and the base is maple finished with milk paint. It was a fun project using a variety of machines and hand tools. Enjoy!

There's A Table in There Somewhere! #4: Tapering the Legs

06-05-2009 01:53 AM by CedarFreakCarl | 4 comments »

For any of you that were following this, I’d like to apologize for the time gap between #3 & #4, but I had to get my garden planted and also do a little work for the community. I’ll blog the community work later. Anyhow, now that all the stock for the legs has been milled square, it’s time to taper the legs. The legs on this particular table are rather large, so I had to come up with an alternate method to the table saw. I had recently read an article in one of the ...

The Craftsman's Path #50: Modern Shaker Table - Making the Tapered Legs

12-10-2008 12:59 AM by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

With the rough stock for this table acclimated to my shop for a week or so, I started this project as I usually do, by viewing all of the stock and marking out all of the components for best grain use, etc. The first order of business was to make the tapered and splayed legs from 8/4 stock. The details along with pictures are in the latest post at my blog. Thanks for reading!

Sewing Table #5: Tapers and Curves

06-13-2008 07:38 PM by Blake | 15 comments »

Yesterday I cut the curves in the apron and the tapers in the legs. I just bent a stick between two blocks for the long curve and marked it: I used a bowed stick with a string to mark the smaller arc: I made the cuts on the bandsaw and left a hair extra: Then the curves were trimmed right down to the line on the R.O. sander: In this photo you can barely see the lines I drew for the “recess” drop-down for the sewing machine. Well, this is h...

2 x 4 Project #1: A one entry blog

01-08-2008 08:56 PM by CutNRun | 13 comments »

Yesterday, I posted a taper jig project. The taper jig was used in my entry for the 2×4 Project. Before the taper jig was made, I had to locate a 2×4 to use. This was relatively easy. I knew a local lumber yard carried very high quality Douglas fir dimension lumber for use in finish work. I located a completely clear, tight grained 8’ board. The only downside was it cost substantially more than the typical big box store stud. Oh well, this is for FURNITURE, not being st...
