« Part 7: Time to glue things up Part 8 of A Shaker Table, 2022 version series no next part

And maybe a coat of shellac to seal it up?

Late night laundry detail…worked on the top..

Getting it all cleaned up…bread board ends needed to be leveled with the top…added a pair of screws from the underside….near the center line…gaps filled in…sanded smooth…let this sit until morning..

Need the bench cleaned off! So. a few tools had to get put away..

This needed to go back upstairs, and the battery into it’s charger..

This can go back on the shelf….as the next bits to be used won’t fit this 1/2” collett….

Another tool had to be cleaned up…a years worth of cob webs had to leave….

Find a decent blade to install in it. Plug it in to see IF it does indeed work…..I need this for some curved work…once the High-Tech Circle Marking JIg was done.
.
Yep. Sabre saw ran fairly quietly….compared to the other tools…

Blade could have been a bit sharper, but..I can always beltsand the curves smooth…..

Router bits…..Had another router already set up..

Wanted a beveled edge on the underside of the top….

That way, the top doesn’t look quite as fat….sand out the burn marks…flip the top over, change router bits…

Only used the cove part of this bit…..sand the rough spots smooth…Flip the top over again….and get the base ready to install…

Had to drill slots. Allows the top to expand or contract…Drill a slot?

I drill straight down, then wiggle the bit fore and aft to create the slot….Stretcher merely gets a single countersunk hole..

Most of the work here was getting the base centered….then that single screw in the stretcher to keep things still, while I install the other 4 screws….one per corner.

Got out the Amber Shellac, and a brush…and gave all the “Undercarriage” a sealer coat…..will work on the top later..
Also installed the foot pads..

These just get nailed in place.

I think that will do for one day? Went and had an Ice Cold Lager….to cool down..

Stay tuned..

I have one of those old solid metal jigsaws. I use a metal cutting blade and smash the ripples flatter on an anvil… cuts pretty smooth… and you’re right, it is quieter than my Bosch or my Dewalt.
