Great video as usual. Wish we could have seen the entire process but I understand time constraints. Great job.

Probably because you are on an iPad. :)

Actually, most of my embedded players are iPad compatible. The standard Blip.tv player, for some reason, is not. I am configuring a new player and will re-embed it here in a few minutes. That one should work on the iPad.

Marc, can you speak a bit about how you put the bevel around the top? I assume you pushed the top through your table saw in a vertical fashion. I’d be curious to see your vertical fence extension and what other attachments (e.g. feather boards) that you employed.

Sure Will. I actually didn’t have too elaborate of a setup. Standard fence, blade tilted, and two featherboards before the blade. The cut wasn’t perfect, which is kind of what I expected. So I under-cut it by about 1/16” and used some hand planes to bring it down to the optimal bevel.

Thanks Marc. I put a bevel around the top of the coffee table I built recently and need to do the same on the entertainment center I’m working on now. Always looking for ways to refine my approach! By the way, your project turned out beautifully. I really like the wooden pegs to support the shelf.

Hey John the video on this page is Flash Video and IPad doesn’t do Flash… Steve Jobs is currently anti Flash… he’s not all wrong tho Flash is a resource HOG and if he allowed flash on the Iphone and Ipad you wouldn’t get the battery life you get now.

Nice job on the cabinet Marc I like the dark and lite mix of wood.

Hey Will. To really get the best results, I would definitely recommend a tall fence extension in conjunction with the featherboards. Admittedly, I took the easy way out and I knew the results wouldn’t be as good as they could be. But the time invested with the hand planes was probably a little less than it would have taken me to build a nice little tall fence. But if I were smart, I would have built the tall fence since it comes in handy for many things. :) But I’m not that smart.

@George Fortunately, some video hosts are now allowing us to embed “smart” players that detect the system capabilities. The embedded video for most folks will play in Flash. For anyone on an iPad/iPhone/iPod, it serves up H.264 Quicktime and plays seamlessly. Thankfully, Blip.TV (the host I use), is on top of things and this feature is available.
