This is a little project I have been working on the past few days that I just finished. It is a nice little end table. As you can tell I like more of the simple Shaker style furniture. It was fairly challenging, but it was a very relaxing project and very fun to make.

Yes, it is a bit but like I said it was all scrap wood and it was a pre-stained piece that my company was throwing away so I took it home and used it.

Are the side aprons inset and the front and back flush?

No the top isn't laminated it's just a piece of oak that I had that was stained and I sanded it down and re-used it. I'll take some pictures of drawer and send them to you to see. Yes, I did make a taper jig for my table saw, I used a sliding sled on my table saw. My brother-in-law had an old table that he had purchased at a yard sale, and I used that as a general idea and just added a few of my own touches to it. If you look at the shoe rack I built my brother-in-law designed that and I built. He is just getting into wood working and he is a really good apprentice. The bottom of the drawer is a quarter inch dado on all four side to receive the bottom panel.

Hi, Kevin, again.

It's amazing how the simplest design can often be the most soothing and pleasing to the eye. The table is
nicely proportioned. Out of curiousity: did you laminate the top, what form of joint did you use for the drawer,
what thickness of bottom and was it dadoed or rabbetted, did you make a taper jig for your table saw for the
legs, etc? We all build a little differently, I'd just like to know what your ideas were. And did you design it?

I've kinda evolved into lock-mitre corners now, although the finished strength doesn't holler out like the
dovetails I've built. But the extended glue line of the lock-mitre is a secure choice also.

Maybe you're just leaving them 'blonde" w/ clear coat only? I think a dark stain or white paint would actually look really good with the decor in theh ouse... the white trim and lightly colored walls.

I have had the ACS for about a year.  Was wondering if there any other blades, like a Diablo, that will fit the saw?Continue

AutoMaxx 6" clamp not working

I have been using the Automaxx 6" clamp for two plus years, and recently the clamp is impossible to close the handles to secure the work and my jig. I cannot close the handles no matter how much pressure I can exert. I open the clamp to max to reset…Continue

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
