  1. We’ll, I consider that to be time VERY well spent, following this build. Thanks for this, Paul, as usual, I picked up a number of very useful things along the way. I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing how you approach the dining chairs.

  2. Thanks Paul. Do you typically put any felt or leather pads on the bottom of your legs? Do you have any tips on how to do so? I’ve used felt pads with the self adhesive but I’d like to use something that might be a bit more traditional in terms of application if such a method exists.

  3. Beautiful dining table design & excellent instruction by Paul. Plus, amazing production work by the WWMC team.

    I don’t believe Paul mentioned whether the oak he used was air dried or kiln dried. Watching the first episode at the lumber warehouse, the wood appears to me to be air dried because of the staining from the stickers used during the typical air-drying process. Also, how the oak seemed to respond to Paul’s blades, how it “worked”. I really can’t be sure though unless I can feel how the blades interact with the wood myself. Just curious, air dried or kiln dried? I know it’s a late question.

      1. There are characteristic stains on air dried wood, esp. as a result of the stickering. I didn’t ever say “stains result from kiln drying”, that makes no sense & I don’t know from where that came. Kiln dried lumber spends much, much less time exposed to the air around it compared to fully air dried. I’m not here to get into a semantic discussion about terms. I think my question was clear.
