Here is a link to the YouTube video. It is about 7 minutes long, and if you would like to see it here is the address:

That’s a really nice top. I like the ray flecks in QS White Oak.

Great job. I love the mortises on the breadboard ends. That is a great accent and really catches your eye. Thanks for the video. It showed a great build!

Nice table. I like the video you made. Great craftsmanship.

I like the way you elevate your bar clamps too.
