Let me start out by explaining that my goal of one blog post per week, which at one time I felt was ambitious, has turned out to be too infrequent for me to keep up with the volume of video I've been shooting. I guess on one hand that means I've been busy in the shop, but unfortunately I'm falling behind in editing. In reviewing the remaining video for the cherry shaker table, I realized most of the remaining techniques have been covered before in previous entries or by the other folks also blogging about their shaker table projects. So I decided to skip to the end so I can start getting out some of the great new stuff I have on my latest project, a six leg huntboard.
This episode shows the final completed project, but with a twist. I had the cherry table up in my main hall where it would get ample sun and get those cherry tannins in high gear. I noticed a stark contrast against an earlier project I completed (that also resides in said hallway). So this episode concentrates on how the combination of tools, techniques, and skills as they evolve have a fairly profound impact on the quality of your woodworking. This is a lot of me just talking, but hopefully folks will find it interesting, and can see a parallel in how they've progressed over the years as well. I found it to be simultaneously humbling and rewarding to see how far I've come in just a few years.
