1. Spend my spare time shaping the legs this weekend and was all excited when late Saturday night I laid everything out and noticed that one of my four legs did not look the same as the others. instead of shaping the taper on the inside of all the legs I tapered the outside of one…NUTS!!!!!!!!!!
    I guess I get more practice on cutting mortises now. 🙂 For those of you who do not want more practice, make sure you lay out your template properly and check twice.
    Happy building

  2. hi there,

    when i’m using the hand plane to finish the curves on my coffee table leg do i start from the front (lower end of the curve) and then move backwards on the curve or is it vice versa?
