I can heave a sigh of relief now. The client just came and picked up the tables this afternoon and she loved them. Like all of us, I am never really completely satisfied and always see flaws but she was thrilled and we’re talking about her next idea now.
Back to the build. There’s nothing really earth shattering about how this was done but maybe some details are interesting enough for a few photos. I’ll just post the photos with a few comments and answer any questions they bring up. OK?
I put a biscuit in each corner ….. just to be sure.
Finished bottom with Walnut veneer and Purpleheart trim.
Routing for top trim band.
Temporary “aprons” to check square alignment and support the open aprons for the big squeeze.
A little final fairing of the transitions.
And we’re done! This is a photo of the client’s original tables, my prototype mock-up, and the finished tables.
Thanks for looking in. All questions, comments and critiques are welcome.
