I started these tables a while ago, while I was recovering from surgery. Most of the time spent so far has been turning the legs. I made the proto- type last year and posted in my projects. The task at hand is dry fitting the mortise and tenon joints all 36 of them. This is going slow but I have one table near completion.

I am telling myself to continue the dry fit for the other two tables and wait and glue them when I finish dry fitting the other two tables.

I would be interested in anyones opinion on this.

Local milled Cherry is the wood and I plan to veneer the drawer faces with special selected re-sawn veneers.

I have adapted the plans from a taunton press Table Book published several years back. I eliminated the drop leaf and copied the rest. Getting the carcass square is the biggest concern I have at the moment. So far I haven’t had to do anything drastic to achieve this. I hope the pictures tell the rest of the story. Look forward to all comments. I will update as I go.
