1. Paul, another wonderful video, thank you!

    I’m not sure if I caught an explanation as to why the original table may have had a mitered end to the bread board. Why do you suppose it was not a full width breadboard? Thanks again.

  2. Quite suprising how much the smaller piece was flexing as you were putting it on. It had almost a natural flow to it, kind of like how it would have waved and bent in the wind when it was part of the tree it came from.

  3. When you first started using the router, I thought that I would have removed most of that waste by using a chisel to chop in from the end as you might when chopping the cheeks off any tenon. Could have left 1/8″ there to finish up with the router, rather than doing all that work with the router initially. I’m sure there’s probably a reason you did it that way though. Maybe I just missed it.

    1. Hello Keith, this is one of those instances where you adjust the way you work to the feel of the wood and how you think it will split. Paul said that for this fine level of working where the tenon would be very visible, it was a controlled method that seemed right for the mahogany. Hope that helps.

  4. Paul , thank you for turning the work toward us I was able to see every detail and important cut areas to clearly show me how to join up that tricky mitered corner.
    Nice job on the focused close ups too. Excellent technical illustration of getting the “Puuurfect” joint.
    Thanks to all.

  5. Maybe someday I too can cut a miter that fits as well as Paul’s. He does make it look a bit easier then it really is. Just have to remember to leave the knife line and pare to it. Practice, practice,practice. Once again, thanks for all you folks do.

    1. I think that one was sufficient for the application. After 100 years it looked pretty good. For a top that might get wet, two would probably hold better.

      I think I remember Paul saying in the bread board build that he might not glue them sometimes, so the ends are there to hold it all together as well.

  6. Hello Paul and Joseth. First of all, sorry about my english writing.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. I am from Brazil, and despite the enormous variety of trees in our country, we dont have tradition in fine furniture making, usualy our woods are exported or used in construction.

    I having some issues with the streaming in some videos when using the cromecast to watch in my tv. Normaly i have to use the cellphone browser in desktop compatibility mode, and some videos, like this episode, dont show the chromecast icon. There is some thing to do to solve this?
