    Absolutely thumbs up on this one, Paul. I learned a lot of really great stuff here, and can see so many applications in my other projects. Many thanks, it’s a really lovely piece.

    Thanks Paul.

    Assuming two board orientations on the top look the same, would you choose one in which grain orientation is the same for all the boards?

    As a beginner, I find smoothing multiple glued up boards that change grain orientation a challenge. Though, this video had some good tips about using a cabinet scraper. I need to just spend some time at the bench getting comfortable with that tool.

      Hi Joe,

      Paul says:
      I think this is a matter of personal preference, structurally this would make no difference.

      Kind Regards,

    Fantastic project, thank you very much WWMC staff + Paul. Paul — Thank you SO much for imagining, designing, and building a project like this using only 3/4″ material. That’s so extremely thoughtful of you towards your audience.

    I believe that every time I’ve seen Paul make turn buttons they’ve always been from the same species of wood as the project. Given that they’re mostly hidden and have a utilitarian purpose, would Paul oppose using a cheaper wood, say Spruce or Pine or Poplar, for the turn buttons?

    Thanks

    P.S. Paul, if anyone examines one of your pieces in the future, I think their reaction will be quite a bit less subdued than as you put on once they realize it’s handiwork of the best of all time, Mr. Paul Sellers; once they realize you made it, they’ll realize they have a true treasure 🙂

      Hi Ted,

      Paul says: I wouldn’t use a soft wood but I would use an alternative wood.

      Kind Regards,

    Which reason or which effect has the white spirit?

    Have really enjoyed this series. Lovely design, and a nice mix of old techniques with some new twists.
