The batch of tables is coming along nicely. All of the joinery is done. I still need to add a few design details...tapered legs as well as curves in the tops & all of the aprons.
One of the goals of this project was to work on building processes for efficiently milling, making parts, cutting joinery, etc. To that end, during this project, I have developed solid methods for several things..most significantly the process of cleanly and accurately doing bread board ends.
In the future, doing batch runs will go much faster as these methods are further refined. Larger, more complicated "one-off" builds should benefit as well.
Below are some pictures....The first shows all of the tables and their associated parts. Then, an individual shot of each one...walnut, maple, cherry, and pine respectively.
And one thing to note...you'll notice that the wood species for the legs (red oak) and aprons (maple) differs from the tops. The bases for these tables will be painted black (milk paint), so I was able to mix and match the wood species with the stock I had available.
