10 Nov Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – November 10, 2017
I made a hinged lidded box as a bit of a sanity project between cleaning up and mitering the gooseneck moldings for the highboy.
End Table by Paul
The wood was rough cut still so had to plane down and jointed. The base is attached with dowels and glue. The draw is just but jointed together with a piece of 1/2 plywood glued to the bottom. The top is held down with some angle iron so that is can move around with the season changed. It has two coats of polyurethane. its 15 inches wide, 20 inch long and sit s 25inch from the ground. The front draw sits flush with the front frame so it makes it looks like it doesn’t even have a drawer.
Coffee Table by Tim
This pecan coffee table is special to me in many ways. But first a quick disruption, it is bookmatched crotch figured pecan at 1 3/4″ thick with copper epoxy and pecan bowtie accents. The base is rough sawn cherry that has chamfered edges as well as a pecan slab with copper epoxy hole fills.
Flag Case by Chris
Clothes Tree by Jeff
This project was undertaken to fix the problem I had with still wearable clothes cluttering the top of my bedroom dresser. My design inspiration was the natural form of a living tree with a trunk and branches supported by “roots.” These were built from 8/4 cherry using pattern routing. Joinery was done with Festool Domino XL, I have Seneca Woorworking conversion kit to allow for std. size dominoes in addition to the monster XL ones. Finish is danish oil.
