Video: Rotating wings on the butterfly table
This is the Butterfly Desk I have been reproducing. After working the plank joints, I assembled all of the elements. I’ve included the rotary wings as proven, however they have not been fastened but. There are dowel joints at every finish of the wings and these joints should not glued. So I can increase and decrease the wings at this stage. Nonetheless, they should be fastened ready that can trigger the wings to carry the suspended leaves on the correct peak (i.e. the place the wings are flat with the middle prime). Additionally, I needed a solution to accommodate a future repair for the doweled wing joints. If a dowel broke (not as possible as they’re grey) I needed a solution to take away the wings and reseat the dowel gaskets.
Here’s a image with the wings positioned at a peak to create a flat floor throughout the highest. Nonetheless, I nonetheless want a technique to repair these wings at that optimum peak. You’ll be able to see a part of the decrease dowel because it enters the decrease stretcher on the correct. The wing itself doesn’t fly on the higher fringe of the stretcher, however is lifted off the floor. That is how it’s within the authentic half. So now I have to discover a solution to repair this place and permit for a future repair if wanted.
Right here is the meeting the other way up so you may see the fittings within the block and the underside gurney.
Under I’ve proven the wing pressed to the underside floor of the highest sheet. I then drove a dowel into the underside gurney socket. This socket is a “pass-through” socket. The dowel was hammered right down to the underside of the wing socket. I then lower the dowel flush with the underside floor of the underside stretcher. I made a brass plate that covers the socket and the top of the pin fixing the place of the wing up and down and stopping the wing from falling off.
