When two of our closest friends got married, I decided to make them a large project. Inspired by Mark Lackley table in FWW I embarked on building my own.
The top was constructed using 3 1/2 continuous hardwood dowel to prevent cupping and slip. The top was flattened using a trusty no 7… over a number of sessions.
The legs shaped on bandsaw and spindle sander. The joinery mortise and tennon with wedges. The breadboards tennon with rose wood dowel.
A number of guys at the wood club were concerned about the short grain section on the curved leg. I agree this is a weakness. However, I have seen shaker benches with much more dramatic and thinner curves. I wonder what your thoughts are on this.
