Building a river table for a gun shop/range’s customer lounge. In my frame I laid wax paper down over my mdf base in an attempt to save the surface of the mdf. That part worked out, but it appears that then resin heated up enough to melt the wax in the paper and then fuse together laminating together to make a super flexible and hard to break sheet. Next time I’ll just tape my mdf and move on.
Hey Cal, as promised. First PIPs. More after the slab gets cut and planed. And after Phyl gets back with the camera. That slab is 2" thick, about 16' wide and I'll cut it to yield a 48" long table top. The finished width will depend on the width of the glass "river".
Phyl just brought me the latest issue of Woodcraft. She wants me to build the River Table featured on the front page. She wants mesquite. It'll be for one of our sons....not the one who got the Morris chairs. So, not having slabs that configuration, I found a place about 190 miles south that was recommended by a few friends over on Lumberjocks. He'll custom cut for me and his prices are 1/3 of what the mesquite cost for the rifle box. Finding a good source of my favorite wood has made my year. Gonna pour me a glass of mesquite smoked Del Bac to celebrate.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
