    120 mortise and tennons, 12 dovetails, a lot of biscuits, a few dowels and there you have it! Two end tables and a couch table made of maple finished with three coats of 35 sheen lacquer. The only mechanical fasteners used are for the undermount soft close slides for the drawer. One end table...
  3. Maple & Walnut Butcher Block

    Every year, I play in a four day golf tournament with a longtime family friend. Originally, I would barter my landscaping services in exchange for entry but once I started woodworking, furniture became the currency. Last year it was a small entertainment cabinet and this year he and his wife...

  5. Floating top hall table with a twist (first project out of the new shop)

    Since I've moved I've been making shop fixtures and doing a lot of construction related woodworking. I recently finished renovating my home office. Since I work from home quite a bit, I want a really nice space. The room has a nice entrance way so I wanted to put a hall table with a nice lamp on...
  6. Cherry & oak floating top coffee table

    Slow but steady, the coffee table is finished. The idea was to get it ready for christmas, and as that deadline passed so did the inspiration, for a while. It took some revving of the engine to get going with the shaping of the top as well as identifying & correcting the cause for slight rocking...

  8. Mesquite Hall Table

    Other than folding stepstools, this is my first real furniture project. It is built out of South Texas mesquite. The top is out of a 13 inch wide 4/4 slab. It's hard to find a mesquite board that wide without major voids and cracks. I actually have enough left of the slab for a pair of matching...
  9. My first piece of furniture!

    Hello! I'm new to what I'd call "Finer" woodworking, having done lots of "garage grade" projects like shelves, basic workbenches, etc. I made a few mistakes, one of them major (I'll just call it out… During final assembly, I flipped one of the leg assemblies 180-degrees, so one side of the...
  10. End Tables, floating top

    I don't take the time to make furniture very often, so this is a rare post of mine. These end tables are made from cherry with walnut aprons (because I ran out of cherry). The plans are from Fine Woodworking March/April 1999. They are for friends to go with the cherry headboard they had me make...
  11. Floating Top End Table - Curly Maple & Walnut

    A small 15'x15' end table of my own design - with some walnut inlays on top just to make it a bit different. I also added some maple feet and some fake pinned-mortises (it's actually put together with dowels) I had a major screw up with the finish. I used dewaxed shellac on the top to bring...

  13. Small table commission for Canada House in London, England

    My little table started it's journey across the ocean today :) 20" x 20" x 29" H. Quite a long process, I was originally contacted by an Interior Design firm from Winnipeg who wanted a version of a piece featured in Fine Woodwork Magazine (1999). Worked through the design with them and then...
  14. Mystery Wood Desk

    I was at my local lumber supplier getting some 5/8 G1S birch for a job I was doing and I looked at the back veneer, it was this wood spices that I do not know (The last pic is the wood unfinished, maybe somebody will be able to shed some light on what it may be) and some of the sheets further...
  15. Butternut end table

    This is an end table I recently made for a friend. I'm still an infant in the world of woodworking, but I had a lot of fun trying out a few new techniques on this piece. The wood is butternut. It has double tapered legs and a floating top. While the craftsmanship isn't perfect I am excited...
  16. Corner Table in Walnut and Curly Maple

    This was for one of the few occasions when I build something for my own house. A new end/corner table was needed to sit at the ends of two couches that are positioned at right angles to each other. I was inspired by the floating top table that Leec posted here a few weeks ago, plus I had a...
  17. Walnut and Maple Hall Table

    Needed a long and slender table to go in a hallway below a picture wall. Wanted to try a floating top: shaped the underside with a handheld router using a homemade jig that slid back and forth along the length; turned and shaped the four walnut pins holding it up. The bottom stretcher had a...

    This is a Spalted Birch Floating top coffee table I put together. It measures 44" long x 20" wide and stands 17 1/2" tall. It was a fun project to build.
  20. Floating Top Hall Table

    I've looked around on lumberjocks and read posts for a while. I recently finished this floating top hall table and decided to finally post a project. Used some cherry for this that I think had some nice figure to it, although some may consider it blotchiness. Finished with a few coats of garnet...
