    Default verandah table

    Started this project with just under 1/2 a cubic metre of rose alder on the 6-5-2011 just 368 days later it's done. Although the table has been finished for a few months I laboured more than a little over the chairs. I'm easily side tracked you know. The bride thinks it's nicer than the white plastic table & chairs we had before & I won't feel quite ashamed when visitors come.

    Barry.

    astrodog. If you can get hold of a back issue No 63 of Australian Wood Review it has an article on making panels like the ones in the table. You need to make up 3 laminated boards from random sized strips of various timber mixed into each board. Then stack the 3 boards on top of each other bind them together with 3 or 4 strips of masking tape. Now draw a couple of curved lines along the length of the top board & cut along the lines on the band saw. Now mix the resulting pieces to give 3 boards of random design. For effect I place a 2mm fillet of light coloured timber between the pieces then glue together to reform 3 boards. Barry.

    christos. I used Feast Watson outdoor furniture oil ( hardwood). When it dried I rubbed the top only with wax polish, I thought to make it easy to wipe clean. Barry

    Bloody marvelous
    I love the matching detail in the chairs too.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    Love the matching centre panels on the chairs, not surprised it took you as long as it did. Excellent work mate

    Nice.... after I posted that I took a close look at the panel, and sort of worked out that's how it must have been done.... you would need CNC like precision to cut them separately wouldn't you....

    Nice job Barry.

    Are all the curves cut from straight pieces or bent? On my dodgy computer it looks like the table legs are cut from straight pieces but I can't tell about the chairs.

    If you get sick of it I'll have it.

    Once again, nice work.

    Cheers

    Bryan

    Bryan. Yes all the legs are cut from straight pieces of wood. In reference to your other comment I did get sick of it half way through making the chairs. Funny now it's finished I'm well, so no you can't have it. The table has a drop in extension so it would seat 10 comfortably or 12 at a pinch but I ran out of material for chairs. So I didn't get quite as sick of chairs as I could have. Rose alder is not commonly available so I went out & bought 4 folding chairs to make up the numbers.
