I mean it makes perfect sense. I end up cleaning glue off my fingers anyway. I just use those brushes for a lot - epoxy, finishing, glue, my kids use them for painting.

And they really do make good firestarter material, along with paper egg cartons, shop paper towels, old sandpaper, all of that.

The leg assemblies will be connected, with floating tenons, too a center column that is 10" tall and 5" square.  I'm waiting on a custom template for my mortising jig but wanted an idea of what it will look like.  I clamped three of the leg assemblies together for this.  It's upside down, showing how wide it will be against the underside of the the top. 

The final width of the feet will be 47", which is 78% of the 60" wide top.

Dry fit of the column and legs.  Floating tenons connect the legs to the column.

That is a great design!  I really like the way you built the legs.

Thanks!

I wouldn't have been able to do this without lessons learned from Foureyes Furniture on YouTube.  I bought their plans for their Longview Table and used many of the techniques I learned from that. 

Each leg assembly is three pieces, with the grain running the length of each section for better strength.  I had originally built them with two pieces, but one snapped near the center, when the grain was running along the stress line.  I'm glad it broke then instead of later!

There’s a guy from down under on https://craftisian.com who posted some of his jigs including the dust collector he built for his router while cutting circles.
Might be worth your time to check it out.
He goes by LBD -> https://craftisian.com/LittleBlackDuck

I'll check that out. 

This is an older Rigid that is no longer built or supported.  I'll probably buy another MR23 base for my Bosch, as I have dust collection shrouds that work very well with it...and I really enjoy using the Bosch.
