¡”Brilliant” Steve! Thanks for the inspiration, I see a light at the end of the tunnel of ideas.

Nice to see a circle jig for the Table Saw for a change… COOL way of doing it.. & with a quality blade, that edge will be super smooth!

Nice video too… Oh… OK… Oh… OK… LOL

One thing that I like about your videos is that the little mistakes don’t get edited out. Instead you use the fixes to those mistakes as a teachable moment, like the badly fitting dado joints being shimmed up with the iron on banding.

Good stuff as always.

Did you do any experimenting to find out what happened with the dados? You may not have changed anything (consciously/deliberately), but something must surely have been different.

Some other videos are boring but yours are short, right to the point and funny. Thank you and congrats.

Stevin, this is a real nice project and I like the design. It’s also very well presented with your professional video.

Been watching your stuff for about a year or better – must agree with Sergio – you have great video’s, plus you know wood working. I’ve never seen anyone cut a circle with a table saw – superb!

Love the Cherry, and the leg design.

Just one thing – I would add a knot in the wiring, called and Underwriters or “UL” knot – for strain relief in lamp cord.
