Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Mid-Century Modern Coffee TableMy niece requested I have her name in our family Christmas gift exchange, then asked for a mid-century modern style coffee table. We don't typically spend more than $50 for the gift exchange, but what the heck.Online search for some inspiration and then to SketchUp to design my interpretation. Walnut was the wood of choice as I had some on hand and it was easier to come by than mahogany. Table measures 18” wide x 48” long x 18” tall. Sanded through 220. Rubbed in a coat of Watco Dark Walnut Danish Oil. After letting it dry a few days, light scuff sand and then sprayed a few coats Sherwin Williams lacquer. Hand rubbed with paste wax to finish it off.She loved it. Maverick, her dog, was only slightly interested, perhaps because the walnuts didn't seem too tasty.Why the walnuts?
It became obvious to me that it wasn't going to be quite ready in time for our family gift exchange. Besides, I didn't want to cart it anymore than I had to. So, I wrapped up some walnuts with a message, ”Seems walnut is the wood of choice for MCM furniture. Since walnut is becoming scarce in our area, I am giving you these MCM furniture seeds. Plant them and care for them. When they grow up, we can harvest the wood and make your MCM coffee table.
She appreciated the coffee table more than my sense of humor. LOL

Hand cut box joints - a tool tote tray. (Post).

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Hand cut box joints - a tool tote tray. (Post).Hand cut box joints
a tool tote tray.My favourite tool tote, that I build back in 2010 (as you can see in this blog series), needed a new tray, as the old one had changed purpose.
The tray.The old tray had also always felt wrong for me as, I didn't like the proportions and the machine made box joints, didn't go well with the hand cut dovetails on the tote it self. I like machine cut box joints a lot, but not mixed with hand cut dovetails, here the contrast was simply too big.This post is from the blog: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/133183A real step by step, about simple box joints, with hand tools.
Pictures:
1. The tray in the tote.
2. Royal wood…
3. Layout.
4. method.
5. sawing.
6. glueup.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, or a few box joints…Best thoughts,MaFe
