Coffee Table build
« on: March 06, 2015, 01:46 PM »
Hi All,

I am starting on a coffee table building project.  I intend to use a mixture of "old school" and "new school" tools.

The general look or design that I am using is Craftsman style, with a few of my own ideas.

The pix below are of the legs.  Because you have to start somewhere.  I did the tapering using hand planes. (Old school style)

When the time comes for joining, I will be using my Domino 500.  For finishing, I plan to use a smoothing plane for the table top, and my RO-125 for the balance.

Details:  Swamp ash, cut to 1.75" square.

Issue: I am using a mid-level Sjobergs work table, and it moves a lot when planing.  I will be taking my planes down to my local Festoons dealer, and I will see how the MFT holds up to my use (& abuse).
RO-125, model 2000 router, Domino 500, mini dust extractor.  Various bits & accessories & systainers.
