Handmade table commission has just been started. This made to order table wil be of a trestle style and designed by the client with a little advice from yours truly. Managed to source some wonderfull ‘pippy’ oak (or what our friends across the pond call ‘cats paw’ oak) for the bespoke table top. Plus some full character oak for the handmade table base. I’ll get some photo’s out as soon as l can on the handmade dining table’s progress.
1.8 square handmade table has finally been completed and delivered!!! The base jointing was by ‘draw tenons’, beefed up with glue blocks and because of it’s unwieldy size, corner braces. Finished the piece with an ‘own recipe’ stain, hard wax/oil then beeswax. I think the client was quite pleased with their handmade table – It’s arrived and it fits!!!! It looks superb. Thank you thank you thank you x. Myf and Andy
So the 1.8m square handmade dining table top is finally up! In consultation with the client we decided not to have my usual biscuit and peg jointing technique. As the top is made up of 8 quality oak boards, the amount of handmade wooden pegs/dowels needed to joint the top together would have been more like ‘join up the dots’ rather than ‘hey, what a fantastic grained oak top’.
So we’ve employed the ‘loose tongue’ technique (there’s a joke in there somewhere) and it’s worked bang on, belted & braced underneath for generations of use. Check out the picture. The base is coming next……………..
Glad you liked the new website – Gold Stars go to Neven and everyone who helped with comments, thank you.
So this is my first ‘blog’ , here goes –
I’ve just received a commission for a 1.8m square Oak handmade table. I’m making a start as soon as the Oak – that I’ve sourced from one of my timber merchants – arrives and will keep you posted (with pictures) on it’s progress.
Cheers for now
