« Part 3: Top glued up Part 4 of Father - Daughter Project series Part 5: bread boards are done »

I plumbed a 4” dc line to a recycled funnel hood on the bench for use with hand held power tool work and gave it a test run today….

That, along with the air filter on high and the shop vac hooked up the tiny dust port really did the trick. I still wore a NIOSH mask, but the air seemed very clear. I could sweep the top with a fox tail and the dust was sucked right into the pipe

The top turned out better than I thought it would… hit it with 80, and then 100 grit on the belt sander to level out some of the ridges and planer chatter marks…. then 150 grit on the jitter bug.

The new cross cut sled made quick and accurate work of trimming the ends.

Next up is to rout the tennon on the ends and the slot in the bread boards.

Unfortunately, the table came out bowed a little accross the width. As long as the bread boards run flat, I don’t think it will be that noticeable though.

My daughter likes it a lot… but she wants me to stop working on it when she can’t be there.

That table is looking good. That’s a good thing that your daughter doesn’t want to miss any of the build.
