Looking good!

Last time I made a table (coffee table) I made a dovetail key-way a then some "dovetail keys".

The keys were screwed into the bottom of the table top and then were free floating in the key-way.
It was complicated.

Any link to some good figure 8's?

I think that is an elegant and very skillful solution.

How will you mount the 8's to allow for top expansion.

Here's what that looked like.

The larger middle dovetail key is glued in place in the key-way.  The outside ones are free floating.

These are my recent infills. 





O1 steel sole, 360 brass sides, lignum vitae infill.

The two adjusters are from St. James Bay Tool Co.

Great work! Those look fantastic.

Thank you.

You'll notice that I chose to "carve" the tote/infill out of a single block rather than the usual technique of a lamination of the tote and two infill wings.

I did this for two reasons.
1) I had blocks of lignum vitae that were over 2" thick
2) Glue and lignum Vitae don't really go together (no pun intended).

It took a fair bit of ingenuity and a few router templates to be able to do the carvings but I got it done.
The problem is that this wood is so miserable to work with that I've dulled three router bits.

Final coats of finish applied........




That 150 year old lumber has a lot of character, the pics don't do it justice.

The base was made out of the beams, and the table top was made out of the flooring from a Dairy Barn in Burlington, WI.
