Console Table: Episode 5

Console Table Episode 5 Keyframe

This is an episode in a paid series. Want to watch it? You just need to sign up as a paid member and you can enjoy this video and many other videos we think you will love.

Underneath the table there are a few features that really hold things together. In this episode Paul lays out and cuts the stub mortises to receive the turnbuttons. At the same time he lays out and cuts the housings for the sides of the drawer. Then he cuts the sides of the drawer to length and completes the joinery. Finally, Paul glues up the main frame of the table.

    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.

    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.

    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.
