Hah! I am in the process of building a very similar table. I’m not as committed to hand tools as you are – I have a bandsaw for long rips and resawing, and a circular saw for rough crosscuts, and a powered drill. But your blog posts look a lot like what I’ve been experiencing. This is my first attempt at a drawer, so it’s been interesting. My dovetails are… less than perfect. still trying to decide if I should try to cut some wedges and fill the gaps, or just leave them. They’re not loose at all, but nobody will ever suspect that I used a router and dovetail template to make them, that’s for sure!

Thanks guys, the blog was fun a fun process … keeps you on your toes, so to speak. By taking all of those photos, there’s no place to hide the mistakes … LOL!

I loved working with the Ambrosia maple … it looks awesome … as you can see I left ALL of the beetle holes. It was a challenge dealing with the holes at the edges though. It was interesting to learn that the beetles actually corkscrew their way through the wood. Isn’t nature wonderful!

Jeremy – Wedges will work or you can do the glue and sawdust trick … it all depends on how wide the gaps are (??) ... I keep a supply of cherry/walnut/jatoba saw dust for that very purpose. The dust is dark and seems to blend in better than say pine, oak, or birch dust. Most of my finishes are natural, using boiled linseed oil and/or shellac, so the darker color is perfect!

I look forward to seeing your finish table. Good luck!

Thanks, guys! Blogging through the build helped me to not rush things, which was nice. You should give it a try with your next project. I plan to make another prie dieu soon, and will blog my way through that build as well. Thanks again!
