So, did some work on the table today. Here was the original plan: Add a layer of MDF and put some T-Slot/T-Track in it. Briefly, here’s what went wrong and how I fixed it:
- First off, the table was not 100% square, so – I had to be fairly accurate with the measuring. If you remember my earlier post, my daughter was my holder/helper – she was supporting MDF as I cut it. Anyway – she let go – a chunk ripped off the side so I had to trim it by about 1”.
- Ok, so – remember I said it wasn’t square? Well – as I slapped on the glue to the table top and the ready-to-apply additional MDF top…I glued the wrong side! So, you’ll see in the pic how canted the MDF piece was on top. Oops!
- So, today – I trimmed all sides of the MDF with the router – dug me some trenches – slapped my T-Slot/T-Track in it! Did I mention yet how much dust MDF makes?
Let me explain the “extra” space where you see my pencil…NO, it was not a mistake! I am always forgetting where I put my pencil, so – I wanted to make an area where I could just drop it and always see it as I continue to work.
Anyway – once the epoxy fully dries, I have some more projects I am ready to hunker down on!
Also – the pic with the power strip – it has a remote (wired) on/off that is located on the front of the table…the power strip is on the back.
