All that is left to do is lacquering

building a simple computer table that will house a laptop. The design calls for a wide base and the ability to pull the laptop closer. I’ve used the wide base to have two different surfaces. The left side slides on 12” drawer slides and is slanted for easy viewing and typing on a laptop. The right side is fixed for papers, etc. The entire piece will be made out of Baltic Birch (or Russian Birch). The final piece will be painted, so the end grain should match (well enou...
In this episode I put 2 coats of polyurathane on all the parts. Then I glue up the top part of the chest and attached 2 hinges on the back and a latch on the front of the chest.

Nothing tells you quicker how sharp your plane blade than taking a swipe across the end grain. It should go without saying that this tip requires a freshly sharpened blade. Come along and learn how I square up the end of a board using only hand tools.
I hate cutting bevels on my table saw. No matter what I do I get significant burning that has to be cleaned up, setting the blade and resetting to square adds time, and it can be very unsafe if not done properly. When I have limited bevel work to be done, I turn to my hand planes. This is the topic of my first hand tool tip episode.
