No Comment #2 - Table Top

Normally a panel for a table is pretty trivial to put together: surface, joint, glue, done!  While that's not always the case, it would be the Cliff Notes version.

The table top for the Tim Burton table is another story with all the shaping on the underside, scalloped edges, and that it is a demi-lune pattern fanning out from a center.  In this build video, I'll talk about why Dominos were used (not actually needed on a Cliff Note panel), how the ramp for the router works, and some of the aspects of laying out where the wedges come from.

This episode doesn't cover the finishing as that will be covered in another episode.

As always, thanks for watching...

    This is so damn interesting AND well done.

    And like Chris, I was wondering what had happened to angle madness. Is it finished?

    Cheers,

    Peter

    Thanks, Peter!

    Angle Madness will continue. This project was an interlude to pick up the pace a bit since AM is notoriously slower; don't want to bore people :)

    I have it all on the assembly table awaiting the panel work, but I have that water heater to deal with which involves moving the finishing cabinet to get the replacement in. It'll chew up this weekend.

    I also didn't know how I'd do the build videos when I did the NC#2 build video so these are taking more narration time than originally planned.

    I already engraved the brass medallion with this year on it for Angle Madness so I have to finish it this year :)
