  3. Well, had a stash from the 4x4s to make a few aprons with Soo, cleared the deck a bit. Set up two legs. 2" in from the ends. Measured between the two, added 1" for the tenons. Checked which two were long enough. Had to set a bevel gauge to 5 degrees off 90. Used the mitrebox to do that. Cut the two to length. One was a bit wider....marked that line and resaw it off. Jack plane to level the cut. Both now match each other. Found a cup of sorts. found the center line. Made a few lines. Fired up the smaller bandsaw... 1/4" wide blade on this one was a bit better at curves. Got one apron shaped I'll "refine" the cut later. Laid this one on the other apron, marked the lines, and cut to the lines. Green cap helped lay out the pattern. At least for the long aprons Laid out the legs again, got the measurements for the end aprons. Cut the two to length and width. There was a problem, though. They were also about 1/8" too thick. Marked that out, and back to the 1/2" wide blade on the main bandsaw. Came out a bit wavy in the cut, but..we have ways.. Somewhere in there, is a Stanley made in England No.4. Got the two end aprons to match, face grain was smooth and flat. Grabbed a pint can of poly....not for the finish, but to make curves with. Not too bad. All that was needed before the shop was closed for the night? Laid out the 1/2" wide tenons. Made a mark 1/2" in from the edge, the bevel gauge could then mark a line across at the bevel I wanted. Got all four aprons marked for tenons, sso they will be ready thenext time I happen to wander down there. So far, only wood from those four 4x4 scraps have been used. Might be a "cheap" table? Stay tuned...
  4. Hello All, I am planning a build of a narrow table for our foyer. I have some 5/4 waterfall bubinga that I planned to use for the top and a small amount of gaboon ebony for accents. However for the apron and legs I'm stuck. I thought about using walnut, but figured the ebony would get lost. I then looked at a curly maple but the contrast seemed extreme. What wood would be a good compliment to a bubinga top, that would showcase the bubinga and ebony but also compliment the peice as a whole? Kevin
