There are so many beautiful posts here on LJ, everybody is showing there amazing skills. so I’m going to show my lack of skills.
I needed a new worktable because I bought an old lathe (old junk as my wife calls it, it rimes in Danish)
I though why not build a rustic table with tusk tenon joints that can’t be hard. The bottom joint turned out all right it just took allot of time.
But then I needed a way to make the top joint and in my mind I conceived a new kind of joint, one joint to rule them all.
So here it is.
I call it the dovetail tusk tenon joint or just a very bad idea
I really doesn’t work well. it was not stable so I got so annoyed that I screwed a pair of triangles on the back.
Oh well we win some and loose some. At least I got a table for my lathe and I proved to my wife that my old junk work.
