Cigar factory furniture part 11

Posted by grosa , Jun 16, 2015 · 1,245 views

It's time to get back to the conference table and finish the arm rail. The granite is done and Ron and I made the paper template.
It was dark in the shop that day because it was raining all day.
Picture 1, I setup the router and tramel to cut the outside edge of the rail. I did it in three passes with a single flute bit to remove material quickly.
Picture 2, a close up of the first cut.
Picture 3 a close up of the final cut.
Picture 4, a bird's eye view of the out side cut.
Picture 5, It was so dark I had to use a flashlight to set up for the inside cut.
Picture 6, I used the same process on the inside cut as I did on the outside.
Picture 7, I check it with the paper template.
Picture 8, time to sand the edges. I use a DA to sand the outside and a flex block to sand the inside with 80 then 120.
Picture 9,10, now I need to cut a chamfer on the outside radius of the arm rail. To do this I will use a 3" raised panel cutter with an oversized bearing on a 3 1/4 hp router.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH LARGE BITS AND ROUTERS PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS!
Picture 11, using a large bit and router puts hair on your chest :)
Picture 12, this is what the cut looks like.
Picture 13-22 after sanding all the parts to 150, it took a while. Ron and Bill stained and clear coated all the parts for both tables except the pedestal for the hall table because it needed some extra TLC.
Picture 23- 25 they also clear coated all the metal gears.
We delivered the conference table yesterday and today we went back to screw on the arm rail after the granite was installed.
These final pictures are of the completed conference table.
