« Part 2: Dry fit Part 3 of Corner Inlay Table series Part 4: Inlay finally in »

Even after checking the tenons, and th e dry fit to see that the legs and apron all lined up, something during the glue up didn’t go quite right, and the apron didn’t end up flush with the top of the legs. The table top leaves a gap at places around the base

Since my legs were all the same length, flushing the leg top to the apron now means the table top is not level (starting on a level surface, of course).

But I also want to be sure the legs are square to the top. Visually, you might see it if it’s not. At least I always spot a picture the least off kilter ;-)

I’ll adjust the legs by sanding the feet to bring the table back level.

Also, while flush trimming the top to a template, the 90 degree corner at the back of the table top chipped away, so that was cleaned up and fixed. No problem.
