Looks good to me, It needs a little more video editing to be proffesional. Otherwise the steps are clear and easy to understand. In my experience I would have done the final outer edges with a router table. To me it takes a lot less setup time. And having two routers setup for a paticular depth is the way I do it. But that only applies if time is a factor. I like the mahoganey, and the one piece design. Most people try to miter. Nice how-to and I seen a couple other ones.

Are you doing the video editing yourself or do you have some help?

Thank you for your comments and suggestions This is fairly new to me still. The video was put together from an article I had written “Introduction to the use of template Guides” I know I still have to do more work on them to bring it up to that level.

I would say most people would do the final edges in the router table. But I hear lots of comments like “It is a pane in the——- removing the router from the table mode to hand held then putting it back in the table mode”. This I can understand and agree with so I introduced the overhead stand to eliminate the frustration.

The material is Called Jarrah a West Australian Timber (When first found it was called ‘Swamp Mahogany’.

Yes I do the video editing myself as I do not have anyone to do it for me so I have to do the learning and at 76 it does take some time. But I will keep on trying.

Please keep your comments coming as it does assist me to improve my presentations
