I had all the pieces cut, sanded, and just about ready for finishing and two pieces cracked. I basically have to start from scratch. I was putting a screw in and for some reason it just cracked. I even pre-drilled and countersunk the piece. There’s nothing like a good R&D project. The machine isn’t functioning so it’s either going to be hard art or she might try to find another machine but she still wants the table done.
These two pieces, what a waste of good B.E. Maple and about 10 hours of work. I did find a bunch of replacement parts on eBay though.
