Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – May 10, 2016

This week I made the Mother’s Day plaque for my wife.  I learned a lot as I made that and have some thoughts on the process to share.

Viewer Projects

Round Table by Peter

The top is 6′ 8″ in diameter and the entire table is made from old oak reclaimed rough sawn 2×10’s.  The base is joined with Dominos.
It brought a tear to my eye to plane it all down, but I was really happy with the final look.
It’s enormous and several hundred pounds.

Slab Entry Table by Ron

Just finished a 3 legged entry table for my son & his wife’s new house as a house warming gift.  Its from the maple “Ant slab” I bought from you a couple weeks ago. They LOVE it!!  I epoxied up a few cracks, inset the 3 hairpin legs that I painted flat wrinkle black.

I built this little keepsake/ junk box for my dad. It’s made from curly maple and wenge. This was my first attempt after several practices at dovetails.
