Small Format Live Edge Dining Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Small Format Live Edge Dining TableMy latest live-edge table was delivered this evening. This one being a 60×32x2” monkeypod slab atop one of my custom-designed table bases. The slab sounds somewhat small due to the client having a smaller dining area adjacent to the kitchen. However, this table does seat 6 comfortably. The slab itself features very straight grain, thankfully with no cracks that needed repair, and was topped with Rubio Monocoat Pure. (We put a small amount of mineral oil on it for the pics to give it some luster.)The base is a custom-designed splayed leg profile, with each leg being laminated 8/4 sections that are template routed. Each stretcher is mortised thru each leg and draw-bored for added strength. Each leg pair/stretcher is half-lapped at 90-degrees to each other to create the base, and 1 stretcher is shorter than the other, thereby giving it an elliptical profile, accommodating the narrow slab.We've got a TON of projects going on right now at Doc's Designs Furniture, follow us on Instagram (@docsdesignsfurniture) for the maker-centric feed and see the projects as they progress.

More Guitar Pic BowlsI,m generally not one to re create something I,ve already done but these were an exception to the original project posted hereUsing different species this time, I,ve got some walnut included.

Sauron's eye

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Sauron's eyeTo test my recently built bowl lathe, I performed this project using a black locus endgrain slab. Due to the unbalance, the heavy lathe of about 1,700 pounds shook mildly even at ~700 rpm (my guess, no rpm reader equipped). After turning the concentric circles, two circles were cut into segments using a router lathe (last pic). Black lines on the other circles were made by grinder wheel. A reptile eye was imbedded at the center to symbolize the Sauron's eye located in side the castle walls. This slab had small decorative burls at the outer rim.
