no previous part Part 1 of Arts and Crafts Style Pool Table - Video Series series Part 2: The verticals slats - cool way to hide sheet goods! »

This 10 minute video focuses on the columns that make up the leg system for the Arts and Crafts pool table. The hollow columns are constructed using the Lock Miter bit on the router table.

The video covers: An introduction to the pool table leg design.
Setup and use of the lock miter bit
A special treatment for the outside corner of the columns. Although constructed from quartersawn white oak plywood, the columns take on the look of a solid timber because of the corner chamfer treatment.

The sturdy columns form the foundation of the pool table and begin this exciting video series.
