are those dowels going through the entire side to help prevent cracking/gaps due to expansion contraction? nicely done!

Nice work! Can you tell us a bit about how you put it together? How did you do the glue-up? Are the dowels at the ends functional or decorative?

Good job! Your son is lucky!

WOW. Fabulous. You teased us with the photo. Now we need some information. Are you covering up steel bolts with those dowels? or are they wooden dowel rods? What about an oil finish?
How can you expect us to copy anyth…I mean learn anything if you don’t clue us in?

It is heavy, I let my son move it, but he loves it. The dowels are plugs that cover bolts, there are also 1/4 inch splines of hard board to help keep thing together. made this when I had a craftsman contractor tablesaw, after that I went out and got a new 3 hp cabinet saw.
