  4. Nice work on those legs. Could even meet the veneers at a 45 for less of a seam. I like it!

  5. I built a Morris chair a while back and I used a similar method for the legs except instead of a solid core I used 3 boards laminated together and then the “veneer” boards around those. Great video again…. can’t wait to see it finished.

  6. Nice table jordan, I love simplest designs because it can live into any home surrounded by any other styles of furniture. Oh, I must say I love the funky tune, very groovy. It adds personality to your youtube show. Woodworks are fade up with folk guitar.

  14. One other small point – I’m not a safety nazi – more like a bad example – but when you were cutting the legs it looked like the fence could do with coming back a smidge more … or using a small scrap in front of the fence for the initial stop-length … and then there would be that much clearance from the fence during the cut.

  18. Thanks. On the surface, it looks like a simple project but the legs are an interesting twist (hopefully not literally) and they look beautiful. Any specific influence for this design or concerns about how the legs will hold up?

  24. The legs are awesome as are the corner braces. Would like to see more about the legs.I’d imagine you could re-saw the veneer thinner to save material on the more costly stock.Can’t wait until the next video

  29. Is there a correct way of determining the recess from the legs when attaching the rails do you know. I always do it by look but am curious to know if there is a rule. Thanks.
