    Posted By on March 14, 2016

    I’ve decided to attach the skirt to the top using hidden pocket screws from underneath.

    I’ve almost finished assembling the pedestal table skirt and drawer face.

    I just need to sand the pieces, glue them up and start the drawer supports. 



    Hand Tool Cabinet update

    Here’s where I’m at with the cabinet as of today.  Upper cabinet is done, a few new tool holders.  I wonder if this is supposed to be just an ever evolving thing.

    Next I cut 8 x 3/4″ pieces that were 4″ wide for the octagonal skirt. 


    Then I routed the same edge profile as I did for the top. 

    I used the tablesaw to cut off the strips of moulding one by one until I got eight from this single board. 

    The next step will be to glue the mouldings to each of the 8 skirt pieces, cut the ends to 22.5 degrees and and join them to make an octagon.  I haven’t decided on how to join the pieces yet.

    And then there were legs.

    The joint to secure the legs to the base will be a sliding dovetail.  To make the dovetail slot on the base I first routed a stopped 1/2″ wide, 3/4″ deep groove to remove most of the waste to finish off with the dovetail bit.
