« Part 4: Inlay finally in Part 5 of Corner Inlay Table series Part 6: Update - table resized, moving on »

So, part of the plan originally was to bevel the edges: 1/4” from the inlay, 10 degrees.

The hard part was the very short sides. I figured that out using a sliding fence and 90 deg stop and clamps to hold the table top in place. Worked like a charm. Then, I got smart.

Thinking I had the hard part licked, I assumed I’d be able to run the long sides along a tall fence on edge, and because I had plenty of length, I would be able to make these cuts in a straight forward manner.

But the termite gods were not to have any of it. The cuts were all different, and 2 out of 3 were not even straight along their length. In one place, the bevel reached all the way to the inlay, cutting just barely into it.

And no, I’m not posting pics of the damage.

Needless to say, the top is now useless until the inlay is cut away, and the top is resized to become the first NESTED corner table.
