« Part 1: Getting a start Part 2 of Thorsen Table Challenge series Part 3: Mortising the legs »

I took a couple of days off, but it helped me come up with some fresh ideas.

I went out to my shop this afternoon, & made a couple of Templates, one for the aprons, & one for the stretchers.

Now I’m all set to make parts on the router table

GODSPEED,

He’s making his table out of OSB Board. I’d never have thought of that. It should stain Purdy. :>)

Karson… OSB paints nicely too.

Dennis, better get on the stick or you’re gonna have to sit on the side lines and be a judge.
or was your stolen idea the one about taking a couple of days off?

Dick, don’t read his blog it isn’t important.

It’s funny about taking a few days off, away from the shop. The mind is still out there.

Quick question Dick. I’m somewhat new to doing templates and this is probably a stupid question. Will you have already cut the tenons on the finished boards before you shape them? And if so, wouldn’t you leave extra room on the ends of the templates? Maybe I would need to see these in your actual jig for this to make more sense to me or maybe the extra length is there and I’m just not seeing it. Like I said, it’s probably a stupid question.

no such thing as a stupid question … and for me, if I had decided to use such templates I wouldn’t have thought about the “tenons” (one way or another). So – thanks for pointing that out.

A very good question Chip.
I plan on cutting the tenons on the roughed out total length first.
My templates are cut to the finished size, minus the tenons.

By the way, Dick… I can’t see your image. Did you move the associated picture’s location or something?

I haven’t changed anything Ethan.
It shows on my PC. I wonder if anyone else is having this problem.
Maybe someone took it. LOL

Ahhh… that is indeed the case, Jeff. Didn’t even think about that. As mentioned on a different post, my brain is fried today. My other two support cohorts are out all week (one for training and one for funeral leave) and I’ve been inundated with calls today. Not my idea of a fun time…
