Very nice! I really like the detail at the breadboard end. I’m guessing here but is that a way to handle seasonal movement. I would like to see the way you did it if it is not one of your secretes

No secret at all Oldelm, All I did was mortise it out and sunk a 3/4” thick piece into it. I used the bandsaw and edge sander to shape it first.

This is the jig I made for the router.

This is the mortise. I squared the mortise with Darrell Peart’s square drill chisel thingys I got from lee valley along with basic chisels.

Looks like a good way to tackle the movement.
Thanks

Very nice table! What type of stain did you use? I’m assuming a gel stain?
