Onward we go with this build thread about a frame and panel bubinga table. Something I’m just knocking out with some 2×4’s and stuff. Beat it to fit, paint it to match – what other way is there?
Last post saw the veritable saga of the levelers completed. This time, it’s all about the legs, and like the last post, I must apologize in advance for putting more photos than usual in this thread.
After the shaping work was done, I had the four legs pretty much to shape:
Another close in look at the 3-way mitered rebate, showing the tenons from the aprons just poking through:
With some slight adjustments to the stub tenons and/or their mortises, one of the legs is offered up to the corner:
A while later, and the leg is at the point where the folded miter stub tenons, mechi, are just about to enter their corresponding slots on the mitered housing:
Things were aligning well, and I was jazzed. It’s been months of cutting to finally get to see things come together, and with the sun streaming in the window – you know, I thought it was a pretty fine day.
A little while later, the leg’s fit was to the 95% mark, at least – a couple more passes with the shoulder plane should get it there:
Actually, I did all that profiling today, and fitted all the legs, however the pictures will be in the next post. Twenty pics are enough for today.
Hope to see you next time then, and thanks for dropping by the Carpentry Way on your travels today. –> on to post 38
