« Part 7: Preparing the the big cut; dying the walnut Part 8 of Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning series Part 9: Turning to the Walnut. How do I clamp this? »

I know I make mistakes when I get hurried, so I wanted to make this important cut when I first came into the shop. I finally took the plunge.

Covered the cut lines with tape to eliminate splintering:

How’s it look?

Now it its time to cut the corresponding angle on the leg.

And . . ?

Wonder if it will fit together?

This might actually work!

Looks like it worked exactly as planned! Overthinking this cut paid dividends for this ‘one chance’ cut.

Your spline plan still makes me a little nervous though.

Why does does spline plan make you nervous?

Just looked a little complicated from here. Lots of opportunities to make mistakes with all those splines. BUT it should be a strong joint. I had envisioned a single hidden spline running across the table.

You are getting along fine so ignore my concerns. I’m a worrier!
