I picked up a couple of big leaf maple slabs at the beginning of the month and this is the final product. It took forever to mill them flat with the router as I had recently broken my ’’normal’’ milling bit, thus I was reduced to a much smaller bit.( I figure in the area of 1500 passes all told ((yes it had major warpage))).Pic 5
I was concerned about the miter and after looking around on the net I came up with this type of clamping system(pic 4), it seemed to work great as I’m very pleased at how the miter came out.
The miter is just glued without biscuits as it had a large surface area, the leg has a 3/4” tenon glued into a matching mortice on the table. Three small butterflies on the table/end leg and one large one on the leg.
All in all I’m pleased with it.
