Clay Model of the Base 1/4" Scale

Art Nouveau Coffee Table

Clay Model of the Base 1/4" Scale

Before starting to carve this large coffee table base I needed to see the design in my head, to work out the design and size for wood glue up and mortis and tenon location. The top size is 78" x 60" elliptical shaped that sets into the customers cigar room.

To shape this design into clay was much harder than I thought it would be. It took approximately 40 hours and was a little stressful for the first two days just trying to get a grasp on the whole art nouveau style.

The inspiration for this style came from a designer furniture maker named Eugene Vallin 1856-1922 from France. His inspiration came from a famous designer of Emile Galle.

I'm very excited to get started carving on this one, I just purchased 350 board foot of 12/4 solid African Mahogany and will use a large grinder to do most of the work. I appreciate you looking, Thank you.

LOL! I'm with Peter. As I was looking at the progression on the mock up I could understand how you are "IN Tune" with this project.

Being able to create a model in clay of the piece your working on is a task in itself and it looks amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Dennis,

You certainly are multi-talented. The 1/4 scale prototype is a good idea, but it surely takes a lot of patience and endurance. Your work is always outstanding and your progress blogs are incredibly interesting.

Cutting Very Large Mortise and Tenons

For this Art Nouveau coffee table base system I'm using African Mahogany Hardwoods. A lot of planning went into figuring out the joinery. Half of the wood will be grinded away to get the large curves and shapes to blend together for this art nouveau style.

By pin nailing hardwood blocking around the bottom back legs with two 45 degree angles also around the tenons. I was able to use had saws to do most of the cutting. The drill press really came in handy for drilling out the mortise at the correct angle. Then I could chisel out the rest of the mortise with chisels.

I feel like I'm getting a good workout by just moving all these large pieces back and forth. I'm really having fun with this one. Thank you for looking and happy woodworking!!!

Dennis,

This is part 2? Earlier posting was a no show?

Looks like your weight lifting. LOL!

Thanks for the visual details

Thanks for sharing! I love to see a project of this scale as it progresses. It's always fascinating to see a great craftsman figure out the problems and develop jigs and techniques on the fly. I tend to always think it terms of power tools for unusual situations. This shows that handtools are still sometimes the best. Keep the updates coming!

Love the way you lined up the successive boards grain so when you carve the project the grain will look like it was made from a solid beam. Amazing work so far.

I wish I was there to watch Dennis. You must be having a ball.

There is a blog posting bug around. It bit me yesterday as well and you aren't the only one today having trouble.
I started a forum topic about it. Maybe we will get some answers.

Anyway, great work and thanks for letting us watch.
