  1. The Pastor’s Table or I Think My Sister Is Trying To Buy My Way Into Heaven - (borrowing a title concept from Rocky and Bullwinkle) Part 1: I think my sister believes my past transgression’s slate can be, at least in part, wiped clean by building furniture for the church she attends. The latest installment is a kitchen island/work table for the church’s kitchen. The pastor emailed me a picture of a table he thought would work but wanted something larger and with slightly different construction techniques. Using Sketchup and the free Sketchup viewer, we w
  2. And Finally: The last bit of machining was to create the two lower shelves. The minister wanted to keep the “maple” look for the shelves but hard maple is a little expensive so we went with soft maple. Planed everything to ¾” and used biscuits to help with alignment during glue up. I made these shelves full width during the glue-ups A card scraper brought everything smooth. I sized the shelves using the same procedures as the top. Cut to length and width with the skill saw and a guide; then used the router, flush trim bit
  3. I showed the glue up for this in an earlier post. Got it all put together yesterday and is now in its place in the kitchen. I have not had time to do the drawers as yet. It will have 2 drawers on slides and 2 small box drawers accessible from either side. The center cubby is for cook books.
  4. Building an oak mobile kitchen island for my daughter. Wondering about butcher block top material. Probably oak is not best? Maple better? Ripped and glued with edge up? Any thoughts? And as usual, thanks for any input! Gary
  5. Hopefully the final question of my esteemed friends on this site for this project. Still plugging along on the movable butcher block kitchen island for my daughter. Top is finished except for the oiling. And...I started wondering about wood movement. The top is edge grain maple and each strip is 1-1/4" by 1-1/4". As it is on edge, do I need to be overly concerned about expansion of the wood? Thanks for any input you may have! Gary
  6. My client came to me over Christmas with a page torn from the Southern Living magazine depicting a kitchen island built from reclaim porch posts and lumber. The caveat was it had to be down-sized to 24x24x36 and move-able. Sure, no problem says I...hmmph! First, has anyone priced used porch posts since Pinterest? Then I priced new posts. Both are cost prohibitive. Then I got an idea, build my own. So my wife found these balusters at a yard sale. But only three. So I cut them in half (giving me six tops) and bought a 4x4 pine post to recreate the bottoms,
  7. From the album: Southwest Kitchen Cabinets

    The center island was built with open shelving, my customer wanted open shelving in much of the kitchen. They placed baskets on top of the shelves which I thought was a great touch. The top is 1 /12" maple butcher block purchased at the local hardwood lumber dealer.

    I built new kitchen cabinets for our home and my asked wanted a new island. This has two doors on each side and two drawers for silverware. Top is edge grained hard maple.
  9. This past Friday night Beth and I finished the work on this Cherry Island top that is 25"x 60"x 1 1/2". The customer already had the bottom and had a glass top that look like marble but was not marble. They wanted to replace it to go along with some of the other wonderful wooden pieces of furniture in the house from all over the world. The table in the kitchen was from Thailand and was about 10' long and 3" think pick of something that looked like Walnut. Anyway, we replaced the old glass top with this nice Edge Grain solid Cherry top. They loved it and it fit in so well with the other fu
  10. The Kitchen Island made of solid maple was delivered to Naples, Florida and installed this past week. I got a picture over the weekend showing it on the top of the Island. Always worry when I am doing a job and have not been to the location and using someone's measurements, but in this case it looks like it was a perfect fit.
  11. I few weeks back I began a commissioned job to build a Kitchen Island Top out of Maple that would be 41" x 51" x 2". We finished it this weekend and it was picked up for it's final delivery today in Naples, Fl. I thought I would put all of the pictures in one post in case anyone was interested. I know it is a pretty simple project but I will share the process I went through. First was to bring into the shop about 25 maple boards from my Wood Stash. was going to need about 52 pieces 2 3/8" thick to get started and I need to cut around any bad spots on the lumber. With all of the piece
  12. I started a few days ago on the Kitchen Island top out of Maple. I went over to the Wood Stash and got enough maple to bring to the shop and start working on. The top has to be 41"x51"x2". I got all of the boards cuts a little over size and ready for the jointer Ran one side across the jointer and ready to run through the planer. After it was run through the planer I stacked it all and put some clamps on it to just check my size and be sure I was going to be okay to start the glue up. That is going to be one large Island top. So last night I was looking at either gluing it
