Back to the drawing, er... huntboard

I don't usually like to break up a thread of blog posts that tie a single project together, however a number of interesting projects came up this summer that I couldn't pass up. Now that I have all that wrapped up, I can finally get back to that cherry huntboard project. I'm getting closer to the end now. In this episode I show you my quick and easy method for gluing up a panel, and how I cut the step-back into the front profile of the top panel. This episode is a bit longer, but there is a bit more to this top than an ordinary rectangular one and I didn't want to skip over any of the steps. By the end of this episode, you will get a glimpse into what the lines of the final piece will look like. As always, your comments and questions are welcome.

It might be just me, but I have only audio on this blipTV entry. No video, just a white screenp

I've got the same problem.

Thank you both for the heads-up. It was working fine this morning, but something happened at blip. I'm re-importing the original to see if I can resolve the issue.

Rob, another great video.

Could you have used that right angle jig to square off the inside corners after routing ?

Any plans for those sharp looking corners on the top ?

Hey RW, thanks. I did consider using the right angle jig, but it had the same problem the combo square did - it was registering against the chamfer, not the edge. As for the corners on the top, I will give the entire top another sanding before I finish, and that's when I typically round off any sharp edges or corners. Especially in cherry, I like to have nice soft lines and edges.
