« Part 49: Modern Saker Table - The Design Process Part 50 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 51: Modern Shaker Table - Making the Top »

With the rough stock for this table acclimated to my shop for a week or so, I started this project as I usually do, by viewing all of the stock and marking out all of the components for best grain use, etc. The first order of business was to make the tapered and splayed legs from 8/4 stock. The details along with pictures are in the latest post at my blog. Thanks for reading!

Mark – another good entry. I enjoy following your blog. You are very right about the attention to detail in wood and grain selection. This is an area that I am trying to pay more attention to in my work.

Thanks again for being so detailed in your blog.
