« Part 4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer Part 5 of Curved Front End Table series Part 6: Pulls, Finish and Final Assembly »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs

I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end.

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Guy, great progress and it is really taking shape/looking great. For sure, none of us watching your project have ever made mistakes that caused rework, or in my case, I have simply stopped counting how many. Thanks for sharing.

Lookin very good Guy. The “whoops” is just part of it all. It really aggravates us, but, we all have those brain farts. (I have too many of them)
