I didn’t think I’d be able to get started until October but I was able to put in about 3 hours today.
I printed some full size patterns of the parts that have curves from my sketchup design.
Then I spray glued the patterns on some half inch mdf and cut those out so I would have templates and be able to make exact duplicates.
You can see that I also got 5 leg blanks milled. Your thinking, dude 5 legs for a 4 legged table? Well I thought that it would be easier to mill up the extra leg now rather than later. So when I screw up a leg so bad that it ends up in the burn pile, I have another blank waiting and ready and the dimensions will be a perfect match.
