    cherry coffee table

    now that i have gotten my sis in law's frames out of the way, i can continue on with more important projects.

    this is the coffee table that was inspired by a greene & greene lamp shade.

    oh, if i were to be doing the glue up in the living room, i'm certain the wife would have something to say about it.

    all i did, was to lay out the parts where they would be going, and to mark the tenons, and arcs. more fun tomorrow.

    Ouch Larry, having lived and worked in New Jersey for a couple years I know what New Yorkers think of Jersey.

    "Do you know why New Yorkers are always so depressed?

    Because the light at the end of the tunnel is New Jersey."

    Ok, I'm going to ask the stupid question. Why doesn't a breadboard table fail due to wood movement?

    Shouldn't it be expected to fail because the ends are crossgrained to the rest of the table, causing the rest of the table to expand and contract more than the ends will?

    Thanks!

    The ends do not gat glued on but are typicaly attached with 3 dowels from underneath. One dowel in the center and the 2 outer dowels you drill the hole , remove the breadboard end, elongate the hole in the top. then reattach the breadboard end and insert the dowels. you also make the tenon about 1/2" shorter in width than the mortise to allow for expansion
