2 tables for living room. Cherry and walnut tops curry oak? Same wood I used on end tables.
Veneered the 2 table tops with the oak that’s what the clamps are all about. . I cut the veneer on new bandsaw . Bought a Felder FB -510.

Nice job on the cabinet(s) cal’...

BUT, you need to beef up your clamp supply… send the kids out on multiple paper rounds… a 3rd. job for SWMBO… another mortgage on the house…downsize the Ferrari… cancel the trip to Paris (post C-19)... and buy a swag of these treasures....

Duck I was thinking he may also want to up his worktable game a bit too. Beside maxing the clamp supply, if he quickly had to lay down a screwdriver, he’s be SOL. :-)

Calvin, I love the table.

Felder FB -510 I don’t find? Older saw? In any case may be clamps and work tables are on hold, pending recovery/shock from recent purchase??

Just sit on your shop-vac pottzy... it’ll squash and thrill in the same move.

I do consider my clamps seriously, but take my megre supply nowhere outside the shop… Anyone that fesses up to too many clamps outsources his work!

Great tables. I like the through dovetails on the drawers as well as the louvers? on the ends. Nice design and execution.
