My free little library

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


My free little libraryI recently built this free little library. I am waiting to mount it and fill it until the COVID issue is better controlled. I'm looking forward to neighborhood kids getting books, but I don't want to cause further spreading of the virus. It's mostly made of cedar from an old broken cedar chest that my husband was going to throw out.

Maple Live Edge Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Maple Live Edge TableMy son and his girlfriend purchased their first home. I built this maple table for their dining area. The table is 36” wide and 72” long. The top is made from two live edge maple slabs (originally about 2 1/4 inches thick) Unfortunately each slab had quite a twist.To maximize the final thickness after flattening I had to cut them down and re-glue them. The top ended up at about 1 3/4” thick. The legs can be removed from the tabletop to facilitate transportation. The legs are attached to the tabletop using 1/4 20 threaded inserts and bolts. The holes in the top rail have been elongated to allow for movement of the tabletop. Each leg section is joined with a through mortise with a wedged tenon. I added the diagonal brace t p the bottom stretcher to prevent racking. It is also attached with threaded inserts and bolts. The table is finished with OSMO oil wax finish.
