So I’m getting ready to build a hall table for my mother in law. I’ve got the material purchased and a rough drawing done up in sketchup.
It will be 48” long roughly 14” wide and 36” high.
I’d like to do an inlay banding around the perimeter, I figure id use a router, but whats the easier/accurate way to get the corners squared from the router?
The top edge (the maple banding) will be an inlay from inlaybandings which I’ve yet to choose, just a visual aid for now.
The back piece will be CNC engraved, and I’ll either have him do the curves or make a template and do it myself. If i do choose to do it myself i was thinking of using some french curves. Is that the best way?
Also any tips to improve it or add to the wow factor would be cool. I’ve never built anything like this before so I’d like to try some new techniques.
I was pondering either getting a veritas inlay set or just picking up a handheld router for the smaller inlay work, but i don’t think i can do curves with the router? Thoughts appreciated thank you.
