    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. ImageUploadedByHome Repair1393335946.703604.jpg

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

    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!

    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.

    The taper jig was only $23. Not too bad.

    My wife decided that she liked the table and wanted a companion table that was about twice the length. I added a horizontal cross bar to give it mor strength and additional detail. ImageUploadedByHome Repair1394753780.328232.jpg
