Paul attaches the support strips around the inside rim of the top frame and a few shorter support strips for the shelf. He then fixes the top and shelf in place.
In this episode Paul glues up the main frame, being careful to get the parts in the right order.
Returning to his shelf pieces having dimensioned them some time earlier, Paul found that the shelf boards had twisted somewhat.
It’s now time to layout the tenons for the end frames fit them into their respective mortise holes.
To kick off the first episode of this project, Paul shows you how to layout for the mortise holes for the main frame of the table. After laying out the upper and lower leg frame mortises, get your hammer and chisel, ready for some chopping!
In this series, Paul will be showing you how to make a Moving Workshop Table. A project built for strength and integrity, that won’t combust under pressure.
