  • Old School Cedar Project

    Here is the completed end table I made for my wife. Now this is a lady who took 3 years to pick out an oven and 4 years to find the right fridge. She was looking for a set of end tables. No one knows how long this would have taken. So I decided to create a set of tables for her from some left over cedar 2x4s and 2x6s. I built them completely out of cedar but with no fasteners (screw or nails). Just old fashioned joinery and Gorilla wood glue. The longest part was milling the table top pieces, cutting them to size and putting them in place. For the finish, I used boiled linseed oil. This stuff really makes the grain pop out and it is so easy to work with. But it was well worth it. Here is a picture of the first completed table.

    That looks fantastic. Do you have any concerns about wood movement and the mitred border?

            Not at this time. Only time will tell. I have been assessing this also.
