« Part 3: The world's first foot-activated motorized router lift for router table mortising Part 4 of Arts and Crafts Style Pool Table - Video Series series Part 5: Corbels for the leg system »

This 11 minute video focuses on techniques for applying and trimming veneer. The video centers on the feet for the leg columns. The hollow foot will lend a substantial look to the bottom of the columns, and at the same time, the foot collar will conceal any shims underneath the columns that may be necessary to level the legs.

This video covers:

The design of the feet.
Application of veneer without a vacuum bag.
Various methods for flush trimming veneer.

The quartersawn white oak veneer selected for the feet looks fantastic. The alternating grain direction gives a realistic look to the feet and makes them look like solid wood.

Thanks David. I’m not sure I’m a good model for proper veneering…I’m kind of just fuddling through it. I enjoyed your video on the vaccum setup. Wish I had one of those sometimes. How do you like it, now that you’ve had a chance to play with it?

You busted me…
I noticed the video tag concept, and I wanted to group mine all together. Shameless, I know.
