« Part 1: Starting a new project Part 2 of Stickley 802 Hall Table series Part 3: Panels »

Really do better enjoy joinery. Did that cut to rough length, joint and plane, blah blah. I was focused on getting the top and legs. 8/4 wasn’t really wide enough to get good rift sawn out of the edges. It will have to do. The top was a chore. The top is 18” wide taking two 7 1/2” boards and one 3.” I joined the wide boards where the grain is straight. Have to really look for the joint. Where the the narrow board matches is wavy so I did the best I could. Ton of planning afterward. Don’t have 18” jointer or planer..

In this picture, I show dressing the edge of the glued panel. Same work for the side panels.

With the 8/4 not used for legs, I was able to resaw. This feather board is finicky to setup but what an improvement over going without one. If the stock is dressed, it goes through very nicely.

Here’s what we have..
