Must be an Aussie thing.  Looking forward to the explanation.

Hi Derek

Beautiful as usual. Did you wind up keeping the dowel joinery? Dowel joinery in nice wood seems reasonably strong and acceptable... to me at least.

As in how are the legs attached to the bottom of the table??  I seen how they were mounted but how did you do them. Yes
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Ouch!  The very thought makes me squirm.  Glad you didn't, or at least hope you've already had as many kids as you and your bride want.

Ron, I will show all next article. It involves a laser and a melon.

Well, I'll be a dumb-guy straight-man and venture a guess.   Some sort of very deliberate board separations and re-joins makes the continuity look so nice ?

Example picture from my stuff...  The surface-framing rails on this little table look like pieces of QS Oak that were rabbeted to fit over the table-top piece.  But they are actually re-joined pieces from neighboring origin boards, which have good visual continuity as joined-up now.  This saved me from hogging away a bunch of rabbets.  'Course, I did expend a bit of extra hide glue on this job.

I kinda like the table before the transformation.
I would have added a drawer as Derek has, and maybe thickened the top a bit (1/2?) by adding onto the underside, and rolling with it.....

Tremendous job, Derek. Top notch craftsmanship and I like the look.


Since you weren't allowed to make it less wide, add me to the list of people who would like to know how you made the drawer seamless. In the USA, kerfs have widths. I'm pretty sure it's the same where you live.
Best,

Hello from another Perthite. Really great transformation. That really was a chunky beast you started with. Looks so much better with the legs splayed and the bigger overhang.
