Small Endtable.


Got a bit of time in the workshop today, making an endtable for the sofa in the family room… this is where Deb does her crocheting and needed two things… a table for her cuppa.. and a drawer to hide away her wool and things from the puppies…

The other day we found a really nice woven basket… so begins the build of a cabinet to house the basket..

As some of you may know, I am a self-taught woodworker but there are online
accredited colleges that can get you started in the industry or on your journey in life!

The top is two pieces of Narra [New Guinea Rosewood] glued up…

The main carcass is also made from Narra..  the legs are notched to receive all the cross pieces… the runners and kickers for the basket are also notched in… the bottom shelf is half lap joinery … I did this on the SCMS by using the depth stop and just running some kerfs to the required width..

Tape them together and do the whole lot as one… means that all the grooves line up… fairly quick and easier than setting up a Dado Blade.

It will be a bit of job getting all the clamps set  during glue up…Here it is at the dry fit stage…

And a quick shot of the top after sanding…nice bookmatch…

Progress so far is good… only been waiting for a few years…

Tomorrow is the glue up and sanding day…I figure a few coats of clear satin poly…

More to come… stay tuned…

PS… the wood sale is going gangbusters… still heaps left … but don’t wait too long…
