I’m trying something new! I’m going to be building a cherry side table and I’d like to invite everyone to build this along with me. Below you’ll find the dimensions and a link to the SkecthUp file. For the top I’m going with lacewood which I purchased from Woodcraft. The drawer sides and back will be made from maple.

This isn’t an incredibly difficult project and would be great for someone just starting out in furniture making. We’ll cover lumber preparation, floating tenon joinery, tapered legs, drawer making, drawer guides and much more.

I started working on the legs but I haven’t gotten very far.

I’ll help you along the way if you have questions. And it’s all free, except for the lumber :)

Let’s have a little fun!

Are you going to put all the sessions on here or will they be on your web site?

I will have them on both but if you’d like to participate in the build I’d ask that you join the forum at my site. It’s free.
Cheers!

So far so good!
I’ve used flip and cut many times in my shop. :-)

Can’t wait for the rest.

isn’t that a Delta Sidekick in the background of the previous video, would it not cut that piece in one pass?

@cutmantom I’m not sure which part of the video you are referring, but I do not own a Delta Sidekick.
