Mega-Blogpost, November 2010

Due to a slight computer melt-down, this is the first post in a while. I will name it "Mega-Blogpost". Things are busy in the shop. Lots of production, and several things in the pipeline.

This mantel was installed below a lovely Jere Allen painting. Heart pine,
and rock solid. Thanks for your patience, John.

This table was brought into the shop with a melamine top and an old, nice oak base. The clients wanted drop leaves and a rectangular, solid oak top stained to match.

This next project was fun. A client from Memphis wanted a 64" heart pine table top made. Just a little more than he wanted to chew. "No problem", I said. First the glue up, at left.

Then, the cicle jig.

Voila! Ready to sand and finish.

more to come!

This mantel is mahogny. It is inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement(which is the style of the house.) Here are some detail shots.

Racing Stripe Shaker Table

Just delivered an eight foot dining table to some clients. It is traditional Shaker construction with modern lines. This table seats eight and is made with maple and reclaimed heart pine. I also did a new technique (for me)- the breadboard at the ends.

This is my favorite detail- the maple stripe on the apron.

What up glue up?

Process pictures.

Here are some images of the dining table that I am working on. There is a racing stripe in the apron.

Quote of the day- "You can never have too many clamps"

Make like fall and leave

Here is a dining table with leaves! It sits 8 with the leaves in and 4 without. I used reclaimed maple and cherry from North Carolina.

I heart pine

Here are some heart pine tables- coffee and console. The wood is reclaimed heart pine floor from New Orleans. You can still see the nail holes.

Welcome to TCF!

These pictures were taken a few days after I picked up my large tools in Jackson. Bill and I brought back 4200 pounds of pure woodworking muscle on his giant trailer. Pictured is the Oliver planer, Oliver jointer, and a Steel City bandsaw. The front of the shop is the last picture- Bill was smoking some chicken. Taylor Custom Furniture is taking shape.
