Apartment Dining Table Woodworking Plan #1: Getting Started

I found it was not as easy to duplicate as I had thought and it, became necessary to improvise. A couple of jigs solved the d...

09-27-2008 10:35 PM by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

Building on the information that I gleaned from the Graham Blackburn workshop that I attended, I wanted to go into a little more depth on the topics of design that were discussed.
