1. Great job Paul, it really is a pleasure to watch you work apart from the lessons we receive.
    I have a daily ritual first I read my e-mails and other business that needs to be taken care of, then I watch your video’s, even ones I have seen before as there is always something to learn. Even at 76 years old I feel that if there is a day we fail to learn something, it’s a day lost.

  2. Lovely episode Paul. The new music is very soothing.

    There is a great poetry in the way everything come together. I feel like your video teaching has matured to something very natural. Congratulations to the director and the whole technical team.

  3. I appreciate that this is done for the purpose of filming continuity, but it would be nice to see Paul in a different shirt for the next project. Perhaps the 17th Century New England look complete with floppy hat ? 8-). Aside from that trivial observation this series provides a really good insight into the more advanced aspects of table making.

  4. Beautiful project! And beautiful instruction! It’s my first table. I am very excited about it. I am just about starting to glue the parts and I have a very important question:
    After gluing the long aprons with the legs, do you leave them to dry before gluing the short aprons with the legs?

      1. I asked Paul and his reply is below:

        It is providing the mortises are dead square to each other and paraplanar to the outside faces if the legs. If they are slightly out you might have a problem gluing in the others.
