As some of you may know/remember, I'm building a round dining table with x-legs.
I'm going to use Tasmanian Oak for the legs, and probably a beech top.
The Tassie oak I've gotten are lengths of 2-ply laminate. I've never worked with this wood before, are there any tricks or things I should know before I get started?
