« Part 1: Table Top Part 2 of Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk series Part 3: Legs and Apron Completed »

I’m back! I got another days worth of work done on Saturday, while the weather was nice

I cut the legs from oak 4×4’s using a handsaw:

I cut all 4 legs, then I used my router to make part of the tenons on the Apron boards:

This was messy…

And it looked like I was eating Cheetos all day and wiping my hands on my shorts:

My first Mortice and Tenon! Not the best, but it’s at least a decent flat fit

All the tenons are done, and 2 legs have the Mortises in them

Off to the side sits my Music Box which has a webcam connected, to take time-lapse pictures

Good looking contrast in wood choices.

I liked your video. I haven’t moved that fast since my wife said, “If you think you need a new bandsaw go get it”.

Thanks Len, if I could move that fast with the sun not moving just as fast, I’d be able to get a lot more done in a day!
