It's been a while since I had something to post, but I've finally caught up on some things and I've got some news to share.

The Stickley round table #603 is neat little project that can challenge your skills.

I needed to make two of these tables (for different people) as gifts. I decided to make an authentic version and an imposter.

The authentic version -
  • Solid QS white oak
  • Through mortise and tenon joinery
  • Dovetailed joint for the upper cross members to the legs.

The imposter version -
  • Red oak, veneered with QS white oak veneer
  • Loose tenon joinery with fake through-tenons
  • Stub tenons joining the upper cross members to the legs

The video series will compare and contrast the materials, construction and overall result between the two tables.

The first 3 parts of the video are done and can be viewed here:

Nice looking table, I'm going to add that to the list for next spring when I can get back in the shop.

BTW, the photo gallery choice errors with:

Parts 5 and 6 are now released!

As promised, parts 5 and 6 were released this weekend. There should be one more video in this series.

To view the new parts of the video use this link and click on the "Watch the Video" link towards the top:
http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com...ound-Table-Stickley-603-(round-tabouret).aspx

Part 5 - This video details the construction of the upper crossmembers. The authentic table has a dovetail joint that connects the upper cross member to the legs, while the imposter table uses a simple stub tenon and open mortise. The interlocking crossmembers fit together with a precise half-lap joint.



Part 6 - This video details the assembly of both tables. You will see how loose tenon joinery can simplify the assembly of the imposter table. The benefits of a successful dry fit are stressed. For a lifetime of service, the mortise and tenon joints are pinned using dowels.
