I started a Arts and Crafts coffee table that I saw in last month’s issue of Fine WWking. Gregory Paolini has a series of videos on the Fine Wwking site on building the table.
This works out nicely for me as it is a wedding present for my daughter and son in law who got married last weekend.
The table will be Mahogany with Walnut legs and breadboard ends.
Today I cut and milled the 8/4 walnut legs and the 4/4 mahogany for the stretchers and rails.
Been suffering through a cold so I took my time and just enjoyed being back in the shop, as it has been several weeks since I have been able to do so.
First time I have put the Jet through its paces on 8/4 stock and it cut just great. I am really enjoying this saw. So smooth and accurate.
Also thanks to a bunch of you helping me recently to pick out a miter gauge, I used my Osborne miter gauge for the first time. I used it both on the left and right side of the blade and it was flawless. Think I will really like having this miter gauge. Kind of bulky to find a storage spot for it, but it is great to use.
Here are a few pics of the miter gauge and the stock I cut. Tomorrow I have to get the router and table set up to cut the mortises and tenons.
