I may add a few photos to this as I go along because it’s going to be long. The photo above shows the edging being glued to two sides of the plywood after my initial cut to size.

I’m building a nice table for the library/meeting room in our church. The library was painted and enhanced by a few dark cherry bookshelves a few years ago, so I thought I’d replace the two old folding table with something a bit nicer. After This I get to work out a chair design that is nice, simple to make, and semi comfortable.

I think I understand what’s going on there, clamping boards to the plywood edge, but why the gap at the corner?

Oldtool, The corners are getting clipped off. Then I’ll put edging on them. I’m doing a stylistic sort of thing, not doing miters on those corners.

Nice sized table, Dave. I like what I think I understand about the corners.

Maybe this shot will help clear up what I’m planning for the table corners. Remember that this is still in the raw and you’re only seeing the underside right now. -Dave

Yup, that’s what I thought. Thanks.
