05-14-2007 08:49 PM by fred | 5 comments »

I finally finished the design work for the table aprons. Nothing quite spectacular but my own touch and interpretation has been added. No pics yet since my daughter has not returned from England with my camera. She should be back Sunday night. So pics will have to wait until next week. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. It is starting to look like a table. Saturday I glued up the table ends and stretchers. Sunday I glued up the back and front with the small shelf between the...

04-27-2007 04:51 AM by fred | 13 comments »

Ok, ok, ok. I have seen all your beautiful beautiful tables. So, now I have been shamed that I have not made one, I am officially joining the challenge. I had a slab of beautiful oak that would be just the size for four table legs and another 3/4” piece that would be great for the aprons.

Thorsen Table Challenge #7: Going for the Top !! Also pegging joints info.

04-25-2007 04:30 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 33 comments »

The last couple of days, I’ve been working on the tabletop. I mortised out the breadboards, & cut the tenons. I kind of fell for the cloud lift theme, so I incorporated into the top. You might want to call this a sideways cloud lift. I decided to try something from the latest issue of Fine Woodworking, They call it draw bored pegging on the breadboards. This is something I’ve never tried before, so we’ll see what happens. Check out my latest Video, hope you ...
