My friend Gil Arad, an Israeli woodworker who lives, works and teaches in a small village outside of Jerusalem has recently published a really cool video that depicts the kind of work that he does. More and more woodworkers are commissioning “about my work” videos as a means of promoting their work, but few of them actually show a project from start to finish. Gil (pronounced Geel) has an introduction video that actually does show a project from start to finish, his mulberry and ash table.
In his video, Gil shows how he designed and built a three legged table made from a live edge mulberry trunk crosscut (for the top) and ash for the hoops and the legs. Watch the video, it is fun and only four minutes long. Then, take a look at my drawings in case you need to clarify the design of his unique joints.
Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
