    Queen Anne dining table

    Summer project - used planer sled to face joint 6' by 12 inch boards with Dewalt 735. After bandsaw legs shaped with spokeshaves and rasps. Profile on table edge with spokeshaves, scraper, and sandpaper.

    Very nice....I have used a planer sled with my 735, and it works out pretty good. Are you planning on building chairs to go with the table?

    Thatís a fine piece! Bringing it inside was a good decision !! We all understand that that good grain matches usually defy the camera.

    Another lovely piece Mark. (nice cupboard in the back ground as well) So what are you thinking? 6 chairs? A winter project?
    Stand for something, or you'll fall for anything.

    Thanks Bill, yes, those chairs will keep me busy in the shop when the weather gets ugly.

    Very nice!
    Did you use an ellipse cutting jig with a router to cut the top?

    Thanks Edwin! That ellipse cutting jig looks interesting. I like playing with hand tools so I used a string and two nails to draw the ellipse, and a frame saw to cut it out.

    Very elegant work. I'm guessing it was outside to darken the cherry. What finish did you use?

    Thanks Lee, yes, is was getting a little sun tan. I started with 2 coats of dewaxed garnet shellac, then Waterlox varnish. I used the original gloss Waterlox ( not the thinner seal and coat ) and I brushed 2 coats. I was not happy, perhaps my brush technique was faulty, I had brush marks after it dried. I removed it. I then did a 50/50 mineral spirits Waterlox mix and wiped on 3 thin coats for 4 consecutive days. I do not like finishing - makes me want to get into spray finishes.

    Mark,
    Love that answer. Sometimes I find myself wrapped up chasing jigs that do things perfectly and forget that there is something to be said for hand/eye coordination. Satisfying too.
    Great job hand sawing to a line!
