I have a table in my van because of 1.618. After I measured for drawers following that principle, I had 3/4” left over. What to do with 3/4”? A table!

Post: RE: Design Considerations

One of the first things I noticed in the original was that the ends of the arches had a flat area. I really liked that, in part b3cause it would make cleaning so much easier.

If I were making one, I’d check out the HF magnetic tool strips. Dado it into the rear.

Is there a router bit with the opposite profile of a dovetail bit?  IOW, large diameter at the base tapering to smaller at the tip?  It would also need to be small enough to be used safely in a Osch C...

Post: RE: Finish question on Pine

MinWax Antique Cherry is a good color for pine. It's important that you don’t reverse the grain by using too dark a stain. That’d what gave pine a bad name in the '70’s.
