Walnut Coffee Table

So, not ground breaking, but nice, simple approach for a coffee table. I’d been scoping out this slab of walnut for a couple months at Woodcraft and finally got the go-ahead from my client (from upper left to lower right) after working up a quick sketch… before sanding, I filled the larger cracks & voids with a 5 minute two-part epoxy mixed with dry coffee grounds. Then, sanded the slab down with 60grit, 100/150, and finally 220 for finish. After tack cloth clean up-two coats of low luster tung oil. The set of four, 16″ two hair-pin legs were ordered from Modern Urban Metals, which are fabricated in Grandville, MI. Delivered to a happy customer and friend.

After many drawings and composite illustrations applying reclaimed barnwood, we came upon a source in Marne, MI… Ghostwood, Bannack Brown.

The frame was fabricated by Scott Graham.

French Entryway bench build

deaconbenchbenchstaindeaconbench1entryway2aso, we picked up this nice french café entryway rack and tried to find a bench to complement the piece… couldn’t find anything frenchentry1alike it so, i decided to design and build a bench. mostly, made of poplar with some pine and birch. the horizontal pine dowels are set in loose to have some give on the person seated and are an accent that is pulled from the coat racks platform… and, will be stained in the same dark brown color as the rack. benchdraw1a bench3a bench2a
