Custom rock maple and walnut foosball table

Furnished content.

Custom rock maple and walnut foosball tableSo this is actually the third foosball table I have built. The second in this style. The case is made from solid rock/hard maple. The legs are also made of rock maple. The field is a butcher block style of walnut affixed to two 3/4” sheets of particle board. This was to get weight and a flat surface for the field. I inlaid the maple field markings with scrap left over from some figured maple I had laying around. I used my Shapeoko CNC to do this and am really happy with the results. I added the walnut trim to the box this time. Last time I used maple (maple on maple) and it just didn't have the pop I was hoping. The walnut fixed that, and it took me finishing this one to realize it. I bought all the parts for the men, rods, etc online and after measuring 3 times I drilled the holes. Things lined up like they should. This was a fun project, and foosball tables are by far my favorite build. They are way fun, great conversation pieces! The finished product is FAST and HEAVY. I think this thing weighs easily 300 lbs put together. I finished the whole thing with 3 coats of General Finishes Arm-r-seal semi-gloss and am happy with the finish. I just recently began using General Finishes and I am really happy with them so far. I really wanted toThanks for looking!

Cypress Dining Table with Cherry Base

Cypress Dining Table with Cherry BaseI've been MIA on here for a long time. I really haven't been doing much with woodworking but I had a project I wanted to do over the Christmas break. I had a glass dining room table that was always dirty looking so I wanted to replace it with something wood. Everything is joined with domino tenons. The table isn't quite as square as I would like but it should hold plates of food 30 inches above the floor without collapsing.I'm hoping this project will get me back into making some furniture pieces.

Gall Wall Clock Take 2

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Gall Wall Clock Take 2This design proved pretty popular here and among friends, so I wanted to see if I could create it again. Other than playing with some stains and changing the wall hanger, I followed the original design pretty closely. The speckled trout pattern of the clock face is something I'm able to get out of a wild cherry gall if I cut into it correctly. The outside frame is from a board of ambrosia maple I got from Lowes. I went back to Lowes and snagged 8 more 8 foot pieces of the maple, so more of these clocks to come. I got the ambrosia maple at $10 a board, so a decent deal I think. I finished my first clock on November 2nd, so it feels fitting to finish this, my 20th clock, on January 2nd.
