« Part 3: Curved Rail Joinery Part 4 of Butterfly Dining Table series Part 5: Split Top Sliding Assembly »

In this video, I show how I plan to use sliding dovetails for the mid span dividers, which also will house the sliding parts for the top, and then cut the sliding dovetails and make the dividers. Then I cut the slots in the end rails for the slides and glue up the end assemblies, which I might add was a grueling experience I hope I never put myself through again!

I cut out the joinery for the lower rail that will connect the two curved rails and tie the whole thing together. It’s starting to look like a really large table table now!
