Here is Kevin working on the table top for a soon to be assembled dining table for the Milton fire department. Kevin is making the table surfaces perfectly flat using some good old fashioned hand planning using a bevel up jointer plane.
Getting closer but keep going, what your tired? Nah come on you can do it your so close, your the one that wanted to makes such a large table!
The lumber for this table top has been air drying in a local barn for the past 15 years, the centre board is Canadian Black Cherry with 2 Red Oak boards on the sides.
The table will have Cherry breadboard ends that we plan to leave the live edge on.
We planned to embed 3 steel rails in the underside of this table, so after making the table flat Kevin begins the process of creating the rather large mortis where the 1'' x 3'' square steel tube will sit, they will be flush with the bottom.
We do this using a template and a router bit with a guide bearing that will cut the exact shape as the template into the bottom of the table.
