Part 4- Building The Frame

lew

Now that the drum runs true and the table lift works, it was time to start building the frame. My intention was to use mortise and tenon joinery but my choice of material was 2 x 6 for the top and bottom of the sides. This was larger than my mortiser could handle. I know, I could have chopped them out by hand. I opted for half lap joints.

The overall width of the frame is 23” and the table height is about 31”. The length, at the bottom, is about 36”. The table is 16” x 24”. The frame is made of pine 2 x 4 and 2 x 6. All the joints are glued and screwed. The table is a piece of ¾” Melamine with ¾” plywood support and a 1” oak piece for the pivot hinge.

These photos are from the dry fit. I’m gonna need to get some more clamps!

To increase the structural integrity, I added two 2 x 4 cross members at the bottom of the front and back of the frame. You will be able to see them in a later section.
