  1. Thorsen Side Table

    I've decided to enter the challenge. I teach woodshop at a high school in Nebraska, but I'm learning all the time. This is a challenge for me to get creative and see what I can come up. I like the idea of a free year subscription to Popular Woodworking! My students look at the woodworking...
  2. Sketchup Thorsen for you guys

    I decided to use the drawings included in the Thorsen plan to make a sketchup drawing as close to the original as possible. I don't know if everything is completely accurate, but it's pretty frickin' close, that's for sure. As you'll see, I also made one that is translucent and shows the tenons...
  3. Thorsen Sketchup Textures - Eureka!

    I found a great site that has some high resolution wood textures that I've been using in sketchup. If you go download my thoreson sketchup plan I made for you guys in my projects and just copy and paste it a few times like I did in this picture, you can mix and match woods up how you like and...
  4. two tables

    I really wanted to make a table with a top that looks like a quilt…this project provided the perfect opportunity, the top is solid wood with biscuits holding the pieces together and then an edge banding around the outside
  5. My Thorsen Side Table

    Here is my interpretation of the Thorsen House Side Table. As you can see I have put a couple of twists to make it my own while keeping a couple of elements to show the table's heritage. What makes my version of this table unique is that creating it took not only a labor of limited skill but a...

  7. Thorsen Table

    This is one of two "Thorsen" tables I'm building as wedding gifts. This one is Black Walnut with maple secondary's. The detail of the original Thorsen table is inlayed in each panel in Black Walnut (the difference between this and the other table is that the inlay is Bubinga - a more...
  8. Thorsen Table

    I had a couple of goals for my table entry. 1. I wanted to use reclaimed oak and left overs from previous projects. I did (see blog)thus, red oak and walnut. 2. Although I'm a big fan of how "substantial" mission/arts & crafts furniture (see my other projects), I wanted to experiment and...
  9. Peg Jig

    During the Thorsen Side Table project I had been avidly reading the Darrel Peart book about Greene and Greene furniture and decided to use his method for making the pegs while refining my own method as well. Since I do not have a disc sander and didn't really want to buy one I bought a disc...
  10. Thorsen Greene & Greene Table for LumberJocks and Popular Woodworking - Goncalo Alves

    This was the wood that I selected when I decided that I was going to make the Popular Woodworking version of the Thorsen Greene & Greene Table. I've had this wood for about 4 years and had not made anything from it except the sanding blocks that I've posted as a project. This wood was harvested...
  11. Thorsen Greene and Greene Table LumberJocks Woodworking Challenge Yellow Birch

    When we went to select the wood that I wanted for my table we looked at a lot of woods that dad had in the shop. I was looking for something that I'd like in my room. I selected "Yellow Birch". It was a nice pink color but it had lots of grain visible. And there was some color variations in the...

    This is the construction details for my table for the LumberJocks / Popular Woodworking Challenge. Dads sub series for the tables that our family were going to make was the "The Uniqueness of Wood",. We all tried to make tables from unique wood, but I wanted mine from Cherry. So there. All of...

    I was not in Delaware to select the wood that I'm using for my table, but dad knew how much I liked the grain pattern in my Baby Cradle in the raised Panels. The project for the cradle is here The cradle had Satin Maple, and the Thorsen Side Table has Curly Beech. We were trying to keep to...
  15. Thorsen Table - Second of Two

    I'm not sure if I supposed to enter two tables or not, but I built two and so I is'a postin two! This table is identical in design to the earlier one I posted. This one has Bubinga inlay, a book-matched "crotch" top and concealed drawer. I used 2 coats of sealer, 5 coats of poly and a coat of...
  16. Thorsen House Side Table

    I stayed fairly close to the dimensions of the project plans since I wanted to stay true to the original size. I decided to use lumber readily available in my shop. I had some 5/4 oak stock that would be perfect for the legs and enough 3/4" oak for the aprons and stretchers. My design...
  17. My Thorsen Table interpretation

    Ok, so I have spent the last few weeks working on my interpretation of the Thorsen Table. It does not compare to all of the wonderful works I have seen on here lately. I am almost embarrassed to show it, let alone call it a Thorsen Table. But, here it is at last. My take on the Thorsen Table...
  18. Thorsen Table Project

    As Karson said on Freds post, just a few days left, so I figured I better get mine entered. This is going to be used as a bedside table, so I made it a little taller than the original and added a drawer. since it has to fit in with furniture already in the room I changed the look a little and...
  19. Greene & Greene Style Thorsen Table, By Dick Cain

    I guess it's about time I posted my table. I now have a Video of the table You can view this full screen. From Greene, & Greene Style, Thorsen Table, Video I deviated from the original design, because we needed more space to display things, so one more shelf never hurts. Besides we don't have...
  20. Thorsen Table Challenge Entry

    Ok…Managed to complete the table. Boy was it a challenge in more ways than one (that's a story for a different time.) The table is made of quartersawn red oak, the top, aprons, and shelf are made from the same board. The legs and the breadboard ends come another. This caused a slight problem in...
