Latest project

Hi all,

I just thought I would share with you my latest little project. We needed a small table for a few plants etc for our sunroom. I used oak and finished it with Danish oil. I am in the process of making a second larger table. Attachment 6181

Nice job. How did you secure the legs to the horizontal pieces? Could you please post up a few more pics showing this?

jmc0319 02-25-2014 07:46 AM

I will post more pics later. The horizontal pieces are secured with pocket screws and just a dab of glue. The table top pieces I used a nail gun and dab of glue and used the oak saw dust and glue to make my own wood filler for the nail holes.

I could use a few of those tables and since I recently purchased the Kreg pocket screw jig, this is right up my alley. Thank you!

I used kreg as well. Will send pics later.

Her are a few more pics. The last one is the branding iron I got from Woodcraft. This way 30 years from now the kids won't forget who made these items. Attachment 6182Attachment 6183Attachment 6184

How do you drill those holes at such a low angle without the drill bit walking away from the centerpunch mark? You must have factory tools.

Never mind - I have to research "pocket holes".

$40 to $250 at Nextag.

Last question for ya. Are the legs tapered? If so, did you use a jig on your table saw?

Wazzat- check out kreg pocket hole jig. Excellent product.
Havasu - yes they are tapered. I used the rockler taper jig.
