The recent influx of blog posts is because I've finally finished a long and restful break from woodworking. Any projects I've done since August 2014 were tiny ones, compared to my usual fare.
Over the next few months I'll begin working on a pair of end tables for my home, and a flip-top dining table for my brother, Jason.
The end tables are designed and mapped out.
UPDATE: We went to the showroom and the flip-top table works perfectly fine. My cleat solution is a little more robust than theirs, but I was able to snap some useful photos and gather some good dimensions from their version to better inform my design. Stickley sells this table for over $3000. I've priced mine at $371 in material. Not too shabby. Now I'm just struggling to find aged brass 180° hinges. I can only find polished brass. I might have to age them myself with Jax Brown Brass Darkener.
