I cut the Legs, Sides, and Top to length with a Minor Saw. I used a jointer and plainer to smooth the edges of the legs and sides. I then took the four pieces i was using for my legs and biscuit jointed them. Once that dried I cut the #13 into the legs. I then used a roundover router for the legs and sides. I also used a styled router bit for my top. After I was done routing I used a Vermont Maple Stain with 3 coats and then covered it with a water based gloss with another 3 coats.

kman45 you comment was uncalled for and inappropriate. Everyone has a skill level that is different. Lumberjocks is about sharing, encouragement, and improvement. If you don’t feel you can add to the effort please go somewhere else with your comments. They are not welcome here.

I am so dearly sorry for the crude and terrrible comment I posted about my < best friend’s > project. I meant it in a joking way and obviously he got that but to everyone else, it was uncalled for and innappropriate. I should go somewhere else with my comments, I am obviously not welcome here. Thank you and I hope you accept my apology.

I have spoken with kman and he won’t be making negative comments on lumberjocks again, and I have made it clear that he is welcome on lumberjocks, its the negative comments that are not appreciated. The two students are in the same class and they did not fully appreciate the value of the positive, constructive environment that lumberjocks brings to woodworking.
