Made some progess today with this project only I never thought It would take this long to just get this far. I’ve kinda been bouncing around not just doing one task or another but the table core has caused little sleep with worry on the mind so I worked on it.
Started by priming the edging :
then later i painted it black
I cut the laminate to size 2 sheets for the table core and 2 sheets for the ext wing.
I forgot to photo me applying the laminate compound but addeded it to the core and the laminate before carefully laying the sheet into place.
The cores consist of 2 3/4”mdf glued together with 2 sheets of laminate on top and bottom.
Both cores were then beveled with a 7 degree laminate edge router bit.
Cores completed and ready for fabrication.
I attemped to rip more of the MDF stock down but I kept making mistakes on the cuts. Working with a straight edge,cir saw,and table saw I’m not happy how there not coming out square and much is getting wasted when making crosscuts to get a good edge on final pieces. I really need a jointer dammit! ,These factory edges are not really all that straight. I attemped to work on the complex fence base and I trashed it too. I’m not convinced that MDF is a good choice for the base alone the angles on it make it weak until the frame goes on. After trashing 3 more not square 13×15” piece I called it quits for tonight. Tierd mean loss of product and possible loss of fingers or worse so shut down until tommorow.
