For some reason, I can’t see the video. Just in case you also cannot see the video, here’s a link: http://youtu.be/slUtiqh-bLM

Small tables are great skill-building projects. You can pack a lot of joinery and techniques into a very confined space while using a small amount of material. The Tilt-Top Table is a great example of this as it contains a turned post, sliding dovetails, curved and tapered legs, an elliptical top, and a classic shop-made tilt mechanism.

While this video summarizes the entire build, I have a lot more footage available for folks who actually want to build the project. In the Guild, this project is represented by 12 videos with over 4 hours of HD video footage. Of course we also have a detailed project plan and SketchUp diagrams for you as well. Get access to the full project series here.

Oh really?! I guess I missed that. Permanent solution or just temporary?

think it’s temporary until Martin figures out how to embed them similar to how we can/have to do pictures.

I think just temp. I heard in the (hopefully) near future you’ll be able to upload video much like we do pics.

Awesome video! Even awesom…er woodworking! Thanks

Having both an embed and an upload option would be sweet!

Thanks for the video Marc, I always enjoy them. Just wish I had the shop/tools to play along…

Neat project –
Curious Marc – why did you bother with the extensive 4-squaring of the main post, if you were going to turn it to size anyway

It wasn’t shown in this short video but I actually dog-eared the blank to save myself some headache at the lathe. So I wanted good square corners to make the part of the process accurate and safe.
