This table is made from 2 layers of 5/8” Baltic birch plywood.
All top pieces are cut at a 10” degr. angle to form the dove tail grooves and matching length of scrap oak
strips are cut at the same setting .
The top plates are carefully aligned and glued and screwed to the bottom layer, then the complete top is trimmed using the bottom as a guide.
A 4” rim is attached and corner blocks glued in and rounded over. ( i hate sharp corners )
This design eliminates the normal metal tracks which are prone to pull up and cuts cost down .
The sliding clamp blocks are cut from the oak strips and are 9/16” in height to keep them below the surface
when clamping pressure is applied .
Several of my jigs will be used on this table which I will post at a later date,one mod I made is the off set of the column which tuned this drill press into a 21” swing from a 13” swing and left plenty of room for the table
without cutting a slot to fit around the column.
