Small but complex table – FineWoodworking
I am engaged on one other piece by Seymour, circa 1800 – a bedside desk or bedside desk. The unique half is in winterthur. You could find an outline, common dimensions and photographs within the e book. The Furniture Masterpieces of John & Thomas Seymour by Robert D. Mussey Jr. Right here is my SketchUp mannequin of the half.
The exploded view reveals the quite a few components wanted. Spotlight for the marble high.
One of many “intricate” particulars entails the joinery of the facet items. Here’s a high view of the “V-joint” because the facet connects to the legs. I formed a scraper blade to direct that v-socket. I glued solely the highest of the joint as the perimeters have entrance to again grain route and I do not need cracks and facet cracks attributable to growth/contraction.
Many Seymour items have drum doorways, and that is simply one other instance.
It is a high view exhibiting the drum slats as they comply with the curve of the groove within the entrance rail and drum plate. Additionally, you possibly can see the place of the 2 pilasters. The precise pilaster is fastened and glued, and its left edge have to be molded to permit the passage of the drum slats. The left pillar is the deal with related to the drum and serves as a deal with for opening and shutting.
There are a complete of 51 mahogany slats that make up the drum. There are two sorts of slats – one sort has a satin wooden veneer together with 1/16 x 1/16 in. holly rope. The opposite sort is easy mahogany with an ebony string.
I made a body that helps in laying out the slats and fixing a canvas lining. Sizzling leather-based glue is used to connect the canvas. This picture reveals the entrance view of the slats, nonetheless when gluing these slats are inverted in order that the again of the slats is dealing with upwards.
