That is a lot of dovetails…You cut all those by hand or machine?

Nice table! I hope the top doesn’t split when it shrinks! I think you’ve done more dovetails in one project than I’ve done in my life! Cool !c

Glue up was probably a real chore, huh? Good job

Wood is going to move, cracks are in the future! Beautiful craftsmanship! 301 hand cut dovetails in a cracked table will be a lesson you never forget. I learned my lesson the hard way as well, cost me over $1300 to re-build the project.Never use a ridgid joint in long grain to cross grain construction. That maple top could move about 1/4” over the seasons, but the walnut long grain will not change length .Breadboard ends are only pinned in the center, the outside ends are pinned thru elongated holes .On the other hand you can probably teach me a thing or two about cutting dovetails. 35 years working in the shop and I am still learning.

The wood is not going to move or crack. It hasn’t moved at all and it won’t ever move or crack. It’s been built for 4 months and its still perfect.

I hope you find a nice table-cloth to put over. Haha, just kidding, nice table.

Never underestimate the power of wood movement. Hopefully the tides swing your way because it is a cool table.

That’s pretty dope. Imagine the same project made out of Ebony and Ivory
