coffee/side table

coffee/side table I had done this some time ago, but never got around to posting. This was a commission (from my wife) for a cocktail table that could overhang the the couch surface and bring the drink closer to someone sitting against the backrest. Tried for a eclectic feel, with hand-carved legs and feet, and a bit of a minimalist top to it. M&T joinery, is actually stronger than it looks (although I wouldn't want you to sit on it). Certainly strong enough to hold my quarantini. :) Made a pair of them. A few mistakes along the way, including mismatching the lamination for the “duck feet.” Should have sprung for a solid piece, but was running out of lumber. White Oak with a Danish Oil finish.Thanks for looking!

Beverage Pod Case for Daughter

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Beverage Pod Case for DaughterLast month, my eldest daughter asked me to make a case for her coffee and provided a picture of one she saw on Walmart.com from Pioneer Woman. I figured I could make it just as nice so I said I would see what I could for her. I finally finished it yesterday and will need to store it until Christmas to keep it away from her – this is a first for me as she usually waits until the last minute to tell me her wishes.The base and top are made from Walnut while the sides are Ambrosia Maple. The drawer face is Basswood with a basic chip carving design (really need to practice it more often), a first time hand turned walnut knob, and Poplar sides. This is also my first attempt at cutting half-blind dovetails but I do like them. Inside the drawer, I used maple dowels as dividers and am giving her the ability to resize them as she wants to fit different objects. I wiped the entire project with a Walnut Oil finish then installed a tile mosaic that can hold her coffee cup.
