Default More table pics

Have been busy watching the wife paint. She is a good worker. Will have to keep her.

Got the MDF top set on the carcass, looks to be flat enough for me. Not perfect, but a few shims should bring it around,

Next is to finish the top, install the router plate and build the drawers.

So much fun and so little time!

Great looking! It is always nice to make your own so you can customize it to yourself.

Good looking, I agree with scotirish10 When you build your own you can make the way you want it, plus when it comes time to change it you know what your dealing with. I made mine and because it is a work in progress I know what I am working with. Good work on the entire assembly. Oh yes, smart to paint as you go, just not on surfaces you will be gluing up.

.......and another batch of pics

Most are of the table during the last month.....of construction, drawer installation, router and tracks for fence mounted (I forgot how much dust is generated when routing MDF), roller table for planer return parts made, and planer positioned. The rollers are rolling pins from WAL-MART, they work great!

Tom, the table looks great. I'm sure you'll be happy w/it. Not to mention, the pride from building it yourself. Great Job.

Very nice job.
Are you in trouble for taking all the rolling pins from the kitchen? LOL
Nice roller for the planer!!
Nice & big, lots of work area.
Do you have a vacuum hooked to the router compartment for dust control & to give the router some air for cooling?

Life isn't right, wrong or fair. Life just is.
