The story leading up to this event is covered here


As Project X and its twin exit the darkness they sheepishly reveal one of their 10 hand cut dovetails.


Startled by the flash, they pause, stretching to their full height of around 19”showing their delicate structure and symmetrical shape.


Dazed . . . they ponder their next move.


Knowing that something is not right, they see an avenue of escape . . . will they take it ?


Deciding its better to take a defensive stance than flee . . .they protect their delicate structure by showing us their slotted 15’ square top while maintaining secrecy and not revealing the datos in which the slots rest.


Finally, acknowledging defeat they retreat back into the darkness from which they came.

And there you have it . . . Project X.

no one (outside of here) is going to believe you got one, let alone both of those out of a 2×4

Tks folks.

scottb . . . I was a little nervous (like most) building with wood cut so thin. Im used to 3/4 and 1/2 . . . I think most of the table was 3/8. I lost a lot ripping with the TS.

For some reason the pics came out a little darker than expected . . . so I just rolled with it. Actually the tables are unfinished . . . DW has allergies so all my projects are unfinished.

Zuki, These are unique tables and your presentation was marvelous. You have missed your career as a director. The presentation kept me anticipating the next slide.

Great job.

Thanks for sharing.

I’m not sure if you’ll win the 2×4 contest or not, Zuki, but your presentation gets the Oscar for best short drama.

I still think you guys are using oversized 2×4’s . :-)

I’m all agog! The tension, the drama, the innuendo and finally the revelation. Oh the joys of the consumation of an idea and the sheer pleasure of experiencing the presentation. “As Project X and it’s twin exit the darkness …” will soon rank up there with, “It was a dark and stormy night …” Great writing. Really nifty tables. And, nice dovetails.
