    Had two squares set up, to do the layout work..

    Ripped some pine scrap down to 1 x 2s
    Shaker Table Project, corner block layout.JPG
    Then used a mitersaw to make a few cuts..
    .Shaker Table Project, Langdon 75.JPG
    until I had 4 corner blocks....
    Shaker Table Project, 4 corner blocks.JPG
    Then a few pilot holes and countersinks
    Shaker Table Project, countersinks.JPG
    Aprons were planed smooth on the show side, and a slight round-over on the bottom edge.
    Then a glue up of all the parts....and quite a bit of cussing...

    Clamps sat a day, then, drilled slotted holes in each corner block. Round-over bit was run around the edges of the top...

    Good side down, used a combo square to center the base..
    Shaker Table Project, spacing.JPG
    Added washers to each screw, and attached the base to the top..

    And set things aside for a bit...and a PIP

    Stay tuned, BRB..

    Just got back home this morning...Heart Cath went OK....no stents needed. So. now I am on the "DL" for a few weeks, letting the plug in the leg's artery heal up.

    Maybe the first of the year, before the next project starts...

    No stents were needed. Everything looked good, I guess. They seemed to think it may be a kidney causing the troubles.

    Table has been hauled upstairs ( Grandson) and a quart of Amber Shellac has been brought upstairs....just need a place to brush on the finish...3-4 coats....and see how it looks.

    Rearend is getting sore from all this sitting around....might give it a break, by using the brush.
