    Julie,

    Thanks for the reply. this is actually for a solid body electric bass. The overall dimensions are (ish) 14 x 21 for the body blank. The gist is that I have 5/4 stock thats ~9" wide so...

    That sounds good. The table top is strong as is so I don't think Ill have issues with its working load. I do like the idea of cleats though to keep everything nice and flat. I may add an apron for...

    Apron or no apron?

    I have a table top Im torn on whether to add an apron to. Its 30" x 60". Its about 1.2" thick toasted soft maple. Theoretically the 'toasting' (marketed Cambia maple at my lumber yard) should make...

    Ugh, I did see that review ... not a glowing endorsement. Im sort of hoping they got some quirks ironed out but realize they probably didnt re-design the whole table-alignment process.

    Truthfully the fence is one of the bigger issues I want to make sure works well. The G0675 doesn't have an end mounted fence but you have to remove the fence every time you do a change-over. I just...

    Thats good to know about your Inca. I can get the Grizz at about half retail, so I do feel its good value at that price ... if it works like its supposed to ;)

    Thanks very much for the feedback Rod, I appreciate it. I agree, there could be some very nice perks with a combo, not least of which is 10" of jointing capacity. Who makes your machine?

    Dave, I like that underside. I think I'll incorporate something like that for leg support and edges. Perfect!

    At the moment I don't think Ill add any drawers, but that may change. On the nook...

    Thats where I started conceptually. Would differential movement between the ply and walnut cause splitting/cracking? Thats my worry with that approach. I wouldn't be doing <1/32" veneers, It'd...

    Haven't figured that out yet. I think now with a plan for the top Ill model up the table to sorta see what makes sense for the undercarriage. I had originally planned a sorta elaborate two piece...

    Yeah, that looks great! I think Ill adopt that approach for the aesthetic, but what should be done about the underside for a table application, opposed to whats shown there?

    With the bottom still...

    Visually thick top options

    Hi all, making a desk for myself. It'll be walnut and Id like the aesthetic of a 2" top but I really dont care if its actually solid 2". Theres the cost of 8 or 10/4 walnut which is a factor, but...

    Man you're not kidding, what a disappointment. It had accumulated in the time between two coats, that'll never happen again.

    Thanks

    Perfect, thanks very much. Ive read something like 1000 grit is too light and will actually lead to the finish failing in the future. Do you have any insight here? Im thinking a once over with 220...
  18. Fix topcoat GF Enduro Clear Polycrylic

    So I shot a table top last weekend and it really looks pretty great, but its got some stripe-y-ness to it I thought would dissipate and hasn't. I realized when I cleaned my gun that some residue had...

    Thanks very much! I can't stand the builder mouldings either. We built the house and the irony was that the builder refused to do craftsman style trim AND refused to do no trim. They said they had...

    Board & Batten Wainscoting

    While maybe not a 'proper' woodworking project, it sort of is/was.

    Anyway, wanted to add a craftsman style trim to our dining room. Exterior of the house is definitely craftsman and wanted to...

    Thanks everyone. Ill see if I can do some demos of BLO under shellac and spray some poly and see how it works!

    John,

    That looks pretty good! Especially the latter example. Maybe a swipe of BLO or other oil can get me the depth Im looking for then proceed with the topcoat. Just curious, why did you go...

    Interesting, 2 votes for 'theres nothing wrong with the chisels', which is encouraging. The primary bevel on the chisel is 25, so I can increase that to 30 and see where that gets me. More work...
