« Part 5: Working on the Top of the table Part 6 of Shaker Table, dealing with Cardio problems series Part 7: Mortises, glue ups, and other items »

Top has been glued up….then a day later, the clamps came off….bread board ends were planed and sanded flush…

This is now the underside, due to a chip-out…

Compost happens. No matter what I could do to fix it, it would still look…fixed. Better to leave it alone, and underneath. Next..

Left the underside alone, and laid out where the legs will go. settled on a 1” overhang for the top, all the way around. Marked where 3 legs will go, right on the top. Then laid out for 1/2” long tenons. Then measured how long an apron blank I needed for each side….2 long, 2 short….Then, used the Mitersaw to first, square one end..

Then mark for length, and make the next cut…

1 down, 3 to go. Finally, after making quite a bit of sawdust..

All 4 were cut to length….then a combination of the mitre saw and the bandsaw…

Tenon details…1/4” thick, 1/2” long, came in 1/2” from each edge…

All done. Haven’t decided on an edge treatment, need to figure out which edge will be the bottom outside edge, first. Next step, maybe this afternoon, will be to chop the mortises for these tenons to fit into. Yes, I do tenons first…I get a better fit, that way. I also use the tenons to lay out the mortise.

So, need to get the mortising jig out, and start chopping….may have the legs ready to glue up, later? We’ll see…

Stay tuned….
