This episode deals with a variety of techniques to progress the coffee table. Firstly we shape the legs using the spokeshave and other tools to take what was a basic square leg and give it shape and elegance. Sometimes nothing is improved by modern methods and hand tool methods can often speed up and simplify tasks in a way that no other methods can. Paul uses traditional methods taught to him almost 60 years ago simply to preserve the method of making turnbuttons in the lives of future woodworkers. We are hoping you will learn new things using some of the shaping methods you discover in this special episode on shaping.
