    Four Sided Chamfer tabletop Panel

    First off I’m not sure how better to explain what I am trying to explain besides the current title - so my apologies in advance.

    Tabletop question

    I am building a table that will serve as an entertainment center. The table top will be six foot wide and about 18 inches deep and 1 inch thick. Directly under the top I'm putting a shelf which is a little smaller to hold all my A/V components. There will be vertical panels on each side and...

    true-up a re-glued round tabletop

    I am refinishing a friend's oak table. The glue joints were all failing in the top. I separated the joints and cleaned them up (32nd or so) on the jointer. Reglued them all, but obviously they don't quite fit back the way they were since they are all skinnier. I need to return this table to...
