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.

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

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.

New here, old to wood working. Quick question for your experienced minds to ponder, if i might. I’m needing a new Table Saw. I have an opportunity to trade My Invicta/Delta Planer, model 22650, in Great shape, for either, a Ryobi BT3000. In Great shape all parts are present. Or a Craftmans model 113-0212 in great shape. Or thirdly, a craftsman model 113-29990, in great shape. I would like to build, which ever one i choose, into a work table. I just build Christmas gifts, Birdhouses, mainly I just like to tinker around. Fix things around the house I would even like to try my hand at some new, “Artsie” type projects i have seen.
So what do YOU ALL think? I need some guidance, and WISDOM from some of the best!
Thanks in advance
