This post is just to share some top building pics
I’m using a 9’ straight edge to joint the boards for the top. I usually use this for cutting sheet goods to size as I have a jig that locks a circular saw to it but it’s come in real handy for handling these long pieces.
Here you can see how big and unwieldly the straight edge is, as well as my super high end Taiwanese saw…
The blade is a new 12” Freud combo blade, doesn’t leave an edge like my Woodworker II that usually lives on the saw but it gets it smooth enough whereby I can finish off on the jointer.
Slowly but surely…. :)
