Dining table in stained white oak
« on: May 10, 2013, 11:42 AM »
Hello good people.
Just thougt i would post first of many projects done, and on the horizon. I took the step and started my own little furniture bizniz in my basement workshop, and this table, among other stuff (will post this also), was the first to be delivered to my first customer.
It is made of white oak, stained with Osmo walnut poly-x oil.
The dimensions are, 180x90x75cm, and with the extension wings it becomes 280x90x75cm.
The legs are curved a bit, and the edges are curved from the edge, 80mm inwards undeneath. This gives the impression of a table with a curved, and impossibly thin tabletop. The tabletop is realy 45mm solid oak, reinforced with 25x15 aluminium profiles (see picture), the legs are initialy 90x90mm but curved down to 45mm where the legs touch the floor, fastened with Zipbolt connectors. The extension slides are also aluminium.

And also this design was inspired by another persons design, i am not claiming it mine. I only made it, with some tweaks.










so yeah.. Cheers :)

It is a danish design page, it is hard to link to the page, but here, this is the picture one the site. ( witch is http://snedkergaardenthem.cloud9.tangora.com )



I saw it in a design furniture shop and was blown away by the genius in curving away the tabletop.

Thanks :) Because of the tabs on the "wings", and the 45 degree angles on the extension bars that mates to the slots on the "wings" they are rock solid and can only slide in and out one way. Gravity baby!

Thanks allot! :) We say "Nå er det mat" or "spise tid" or maybe just "mat" :)

How did you cut the sides of the table.

You mean the curves? If so, i drew the curves out on both sides (the bottom and side of the table), used my dozuki saw and cut almost to the lines, and then using a mallet and a chisel i chopped out all the pieces and started to sand with 40grit paper in my bosch random orbit sander...i was sooooo close going out to get a rotex 90..next time :D

The hardest part was actualy making the strongest possbile connection between the legs and tabletop. since i did not have any skirting i was unsure how the legs would hold up to sideways motion, especially since the tabletop, being solid oak, 45mm thick, weighed around 100kg.

This is was i came up with:


This mates into


This

Pared with 2x dominoes and 2x zipbolts, (8mmx90 half newel connectors) pr leg, the result was solid.

Thanks for posting joint construction.

I was looking at how did you join the legs to the top.

I could see the zip bolt holes just wondered about the angle joint.

Nice!

I am working on some caps for the holes, just have to find a way to make some removable caps that are thin enough, and solid enough for removal.

Oh so u have not glued the legs then.

You are making it so the table comes apart.  

I thought you would of glued it like.

I'm not sure what you can make which would look discreet but yet removable to cover the holes.

yeah, i had to make it come apart, was dificult to move with the legs on, especialy out of my shop which is in my basement, through a couple of narrow doors and a shody narrow staircase..

I am working on a jig, so that i can use the router with some guide bushings to first rout a 30mm dia disk, and then route a lip 1,5mm on that disk leaving a "plug" 27mm dia with a lip around it. And then just running it through the tablesaw or bandsaw to cut the plug out.

Like this:



Edit: The hole for the zip bolt in the leg is 27 :)

Oh yeah, and the leg curves slightly so it has to either bend, or have a slight curve on the lip...

I really like the style of this table and the leg joint system is both well thought out and looks great. [smile]
Thanks for posting it.

This is a remarkably elegant table. Congratulations on the build. I  bought a  similar table 30 years ago and still love it.  Now that I have started to hobby woodwork  I was considering to copy and make one slightly larger. But this design is much more elegant. The undercut curves & the narrowing legs define it. Could you send more pictures ,diagrams & explanations on the leg to tabletop joints?

I get that from my Missus family!!

The cheapos!!!

They often come up to me for silly things like a wooden coat hangers or something.    Not because they can't find the one they want or  they want one bigger or it needs to fit some where specific but because it cost £25 or something and think I can make the same cheaper.  

I tell them to stop being cheap bastards and either get a cheap one or just pay for the one you want because ill be charging you double or more.

So here goes, my work sketches for the table, the whole shabang :)
It is all in metric, but i guess if you have your sketchup tuned to imperial it will convert itself.

The sketches are a bit rough, some of the curves are hard, or impossible to draw considering sketchups strongly geometric rules, but you get the drift.
Just ask if there is anything :)

Edit: oh, if a mod has a second please tune the post (i am not sure what i did wrong), somehow the last pic became a thumb and stuff got a little mixed :)

Oh, thank you so much for the sketches. Right now I have a long learning curve to follow to achieve your expertise. Will be trying to practice the joints with scrap wood until I am successful. I did not want this post to go dormant before I got as much info on how to build this gorgeous table.I am online right now and is 1.10 in the afternoon (pm) in central USA (Minnesota). I see you are online also. What time is it now over in Norway where you are?

Table looks awesome.

How did you the interfacing joints?
More specifically, the square "pocket" at the top of the leg and the V intersection at the outer corner of the top.


The hardest part was actualy making the strongest possbile connection between the legs and tabletop. since i did not have any skirting i was unsure how the legs would hold up to sideways motion, especially since the tabletop, being solid oak, 45mm thick, weighed around 100kg.
