Well after reading so many posts here and learning so many things, I have finally decided to join and become part of this wonderful community! I would also like to share the last of a video series I did on You Tube showing a table I built for my kitchen. It was by far the most fun I have had making a project, and it really challenged me as a woodworker. I would love to hear your comments.

Guy, I just watched the your tube series on this table build. The table is beautiful!!

I have a few questions. How did you trim up the apron halves and get them parallel. Have you had any issues with the top expanding and contracting.

I am in the process of building a similar table out of ambrosia maple and have been learning from your videos, Thanks

Hi John,

The aprons were flushed with the inside split using a hand saw, then paring them down with a block plane. I looked at videos, and it is part 7 about 12 minutes in.

After two years, I have not had any issues at all with seasonal wood movement. On this or any of the pieces I have in my house. We keep the temperature and humidity pretty consistent in the house. We and run a humidifier in the winter and a dehumidifier in the summer. I’m sure it would be different if we didn’t have those systems built into our HVAC system.

And thanks for the nice comments John! Any other questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Guy, the part I didn’t find in the video was how you cleaned up the long edges of the lamination’s on the apron and then made the other edge parallel to the first edge.

Thanks

John

Guy,

I figured it out. I ran the curved apron through the jointer and got one edge straight, then paralled the other side with the table saw.

Thanks

John,

Sorry I didn’t answer your question correctly. And yes, that is exactly what I did. Jointer then table saw. Very carefully!

Thanks
