have some time now, so expect more progress!
first, i milled and chamfered the beam. although the plan calls for laminating two 3/4” pieces i used single 1.5” piece
as i am making the table easy to break apart and move, the beam will not be glued and doweled to the uprights. to get more lateral strength, i routed dadoes in the upright that fit the beam.
as you can see my dado blade leave a groove :-(
uprights sanded together to 180P
and chamfered according to the plan. this is not an easy part. they recommend using full face mask and i should have heeded their advice. you have to look very closely at the router to stop at the right places.
closeup on the detail (before final sanding):
this detail collide a little with the dado, hopefully it will look ok.
tomorrow i’ll assemble the sides. Have a good day!
