This is a pie crust tea table I made as a Christmas present for my two daughters. They liked having tea parties so I thought they should have a table…
I knew I had a lumber problem when my dad started running out of room for it in his barn!
I would like to see how you attached the mirror uprights. I have the Mussey book, but since the photo is from straight on I haven't quite figured out how to attach the mirror uprights. I have seen similar pieces but haven't been able to pull any drawers out etc. to see how the uprights are attached.
I also have a few other questions if you wouldn't mind emailing me at tjtalma(at)gmail(dot)com. I would appreciate any help.
Beautiful work. I am planing to make this same piece soon. My wife loves it, and so do I. I am almost finished with the plans for it. Great job, you should post some more of your work.
Thanks for the review. I updated the plugin to use the default units from the model. You can download it from my webpage using the link above that Dave provided.
Hope I win!
I also make moldings with a 45 (similar to the 55). But I find it quite simple to use, and leaves a great surface. I find the biggest pproblem with these seems to be the blades. Basically I find them to be junk and lose thier edge almost immediatly.
If you get a sheet of 1/8" A1 tool steel (unharded) it's easy to quickly grind your own blades. I harded them with a propane torch and cooking oil. I heat the blade above the edge and wait until the straw color goes to the end. I find that holds an edge great and can be resharpend.
I usually go straight to finish without neededing any cleanup or sanding.
Dave, when I watched the video I couldn't help but notice all the plugins you have for SU. Do you have alist somewhere showing all your plugins? I am looking for a dovetail plugin do you know of any good ones?
My top 3 choices would be:
A wingback chair, with a litle aside about different leg choices.
A federal side board. (I think Steve Latta or Rob Millard would be a great source their work is amazing!)
I also think a federal secretary would be great (one with glass in the doord and dividers).
And a built in shell top corner cupboard.
And a chipendale serpentine pembroke table.
And chipendale side chairs with all the carving.
A Charleston step back cupboard.
A federal work table with a sewing bag underneath.
That the first 3 that pop in my head!
