This table is a board gaming table for a friend and will have a center hexagon covered in red gaming-suede which sits within another wood hexagon trimmed with 3.5” oak and stained using my goto GF Java Gel Stain (see… Continue reading All about that Base
I have a very large panel to construct for a tabletop, essentially 65″ wide, so I am using 9-1x8x8’s. I’ve mentioned several times that I do not have a planar or jointer. Jointer would be awesome, but I usually just spend an extra half-hour picking straight boards at the lumber yard and you can… Continue reading To dowel or not to dowel?
