« Part 2: Bent Laminated Lower Rails Part 3 of Butterfly Dining Table series Part 4: Base Details and Base Assembly »

After I take the rails of the bending forms, I true up one edge and then rip them to size. I layout for the angled cuts on the curved ends, and then cut them with the miter saw. All the joinery for the curved rails are then cut with the Festool Domino. I also go through my clamping strategy for when I’m ready for glue up.

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Once again, it all went together perfectly! You’re making this look way too easy.

HaHa. I did the glue up yesterday morning. I don’t know how much of it I can put on You Tube. There was a whole lotta bad language. It was the most difficult glue up I had ever tried. But I won in the end.

I never doubted you. The dry fit looked perfect. What made the glue up tough?

The dominos are a pretty tight fit, and sometimes require a little persuasion with a mallet. Well there was no good way to get them into the slots by giving the pieces a little love tap or two. It was difficult to say the least.
