Now the mortises are cut, it’s time to lay out and cut the tenons on the aprons. The sloping shoulders add extra detail and require accurate work. Paul goes through a couple of techniques for cutting the tenons, including the extra detail of the bare faced tenon as found on one of the original aprons.
invaluable tips thanks for each and every one .
Paul I am really enjoying this series, learning how to do “hand compound miters etc. They all ways imitated me but you make it look so easy, I think the key factor is take your time and work accurately like you do. I love it.
I like that style and really want to build a couple and will be looking for some wood to build them. I also like the chisel marking of the parts as well.
wonderful video as always. I think I have to find some mahogany to build this table. I find it to be so exciting as my accuracy progresses. Thank you to the team for this opportunity
Accurate from the Latin Accūrātus
To Care from the Latin Cūre
I think Paul has mixed the two up abit haha….but it’s the point of being accurate that matters…I’m just nit picking….brilliant video series though…very informative.
Hello Mr. “Nit Picker”, take a look at
and you’ll see that Paul was right. 😛
From ad (“to, towards, at”) + cūrō (“care for”).”
Now I was nit picking. 😉
Accurate …from Latin accūrātus, past participle of accūrāre …to perform with care, from cūra care
Haha….I’m just nit picking…excellent video series…very informative
The forensic aspect of this project sets it apart, and above, a straight “How to make a…”
It is so interesting to see how the table was made over 100 years ago. Thanks so much for this approach.
Your right, Richard. The forensic part explained by someone that can explain it is a unique and interesting experience. I didn’t expect to see a woodworker mark his pieces permanently using a stone mason’s method. But being the underside of a table it isn’t a problem.
Yes I really love this project. Thank you for both the teaching and the insight into the past. It’s given me a lot more respect for woodworkers of old – those who did it for a living, this includes my late grandfather, who had a furniture business in Ipswich about 85 years ago.
A long episode and a very useful one. I have a feeling that I will be looking at this one several times!
This video is another illustration of the virtue of a non flush fitting vice. Imagine assembling/disassembling the joints with a flush fitting vice. Experience does seem to outway the theory of certain workbench gurus.
Is it me or have I missed the last video. Where’s the finished table with the top on??
You need to download episode 5… Only kidding he hasn’t done it yet.
totally amazed… so simple…. what a craftsman.
