The big 5-0. Not too many threads here reach to such extended counts. It’s been a most enjoyable journey.
I have been working on finishing up the coffee table assembly. I’ve given the slab top and breadboard ends another coat or two of finish.
Assembly-wide, the corner pillow blocks have been polished up and installed, with dabo driven in, two per corner block assembly, as was shown in an earlier post describing the side table assembly.
The middle pillow blocks have been fitted, and the post tenons trimmed to length, and the tenons then notched for the breadboard connections:
I’ve also waxed the frame parts.
A closer look at one of the notched tenons:
A slightly different view:
I was hoping to see the leveler feet for this table appear today, but the machinist was a no show, so it looks like it will be Monday for those.
My wife dropped by to take a look at how the tables were coming along, and while she was there she filmed me putting the drawer in the side table, to show, to a certain extent at least, a general sense of the fit and action:
Just a short clip, but I hope it was worth a look.
I got the slab top fitted to the frame as well today, so it should be installed, along with the breadboard ends, sometime tomorrow.
Thanks for coming by the Carpentry Way. Another post in this series awaits: 51
