    Very nice, Brian. Great choice on the banding as well. Curious, are the trays and lower dividers made from Spanish cedar?

    Great work, Bill. Beautiful table. The shape of the top adds a nice uniqueness to it. Kind of a more modern pie top table. Lots of nice details throughout.

    Iíd check with your mattress manufacturer. You may void the warranty if it is not either on a box spring/foundation or solid surface. Iíd do it more like a platform bed and make a solid foundation.

    I make full size drawings and cut it out, tape it up to a wall and stare at it for awhile. Make adjustments and stare some more. For a table, I make the top first, prop it up to actual height and put...

    Thomas makes a good suggestion. If you do a split top, make the split wide enough to accept clamps. I didnít, and ended up widening the split after the fact. I also added some dog holes to...

    Nice work, Mike. Handles look great. I suspect on some of my projects Iíd be lucky to get 25 cents an hour. But, thatís not why we do it. Youíll appreciate the effort every time you use it.
