  • Dining Table Build Thread

    So it starts. I only have three weeks to get this done. Iíll sure give it a good try. My wife told me I donít have to stress myself out over it, whew!

    The design thread is here: https://forum.canadianwoodworking.co...ng-table-plans

    I have a lot of cherry so Iím going to make the painted base with it. Mostly laminated boards.

    Here are the majority of the pieces.

          LOL. It hurts but I wanted something good and sturdy for the base.

                We are all dated then even if we were here before that. I've been here since /99 along with a few others and it won't say that. The whole forum was lost a few times. Ken -- I think that you might have been here before that 2006 date also.

                  I think you're right, Wally. I recall the forum losses now that you mention them. Good catch.

                    I was here as "Randy in Dartmouth" around 2000 or so. Switched to "Randy in Calgary" in 2005 after moving to, you guessed it, Calgary.

                    Cheers
                    Randy

                        Itís a CNC Router Parts Machine, 24Ē x 24Ē with a 3 1/4 hp PC router connected to a SuperPID. I bought the router used out of Ottawa but brand new it would be around $8000 CAD, maybe more depending on exchange.

                        older version of this http://www.cncrouterparts.com/bencht...kit-p-314.html

                        its an excellent machine and worked great out of the box (even used!). None of the fiddling with tightening belts etc as documented on the xcarve and shapeoko.

                        wish I had more room for a larger machine (4x8).

                          Hi Peter,
                          thanks for the info, I am working with one from Techno-Isel, 49x59, 14" gantry, I use it at work, not mine, I do pattern-making with it. I am planning on buying a desktop unit 24x30 or 36, I'm planning on retiring within 18 months. So I am checking for one. Thanks

                            Glued up a foot and tried using my vacuum bag. It worked ok but I did my second one with clamps.

                            Then it it was time to mill and glue up the pieces to make the larger parts of the table legs.

                            And gluing up the up the top of the foot.

                            Next Iíll dimension the parts to final length, start cutting some angles on them and dry fitting everything.

                            my plan is to spray finish with white wb lacquer then glue together with large dominos.

                              I made the top part of the foot a little proud and used a plane to get it just right!

                              The foot looks pretty close to my Sketchup model wouldnít you say?

                              I lost 3/8Ē of height due to stupidity but Iíll make that up on the Centre leg.

                              Tomorow I will cut the other parts to final dimensions and start the angled cuts. I think itís best if I use my bandsaw for the angled cuts.

                              Hopefully I will get to a dry fit of the leg assembly tomorrow.

                              Cheers,
                              Peter
