    This table turned out great! Nice job David.

    That’s a great look with the beefy legs. I really like the whole thing.

    Many store bought tables are attached to their bases with pockethole screws and I haven’t seen any with issues. Are they the “best” probably not. Will they work. Totally.

    I’m loving the new guy’s shots. Super cool!

    Nice. I could make that if I had those cool chairs.

    Beautiful table! Thanks for sharing.

    There's a part of your electronic montage music that reminds me of a particular New Order song but I'm completely blanking on the name. Good stuff!

    The REM sand bit gets shorter each video. At some point it will just be a single subliminal frame that leaves us all humming the song and wondering why!

    I've used glue and sawdust before but the stain never seems to penetrate into the wood so the color is different. Do you have a trick to make this work?

    All the "that wont work" comments aside, isn't making about feeding your creative dog? Go with it! Be that free spirited woodworker! Fly little bird, fly! Ok, enough of that. Great vid David, a lot of excellent tips for using pocket hole joinery. Dig it! <(")

    Question: in gluing together the legs, would the blue painter's tape-method, that you have shown before, work too?

    Beautiful table! I got some great ideas from watching you make the legs. A great idea with the "tube" construction if you don't have the thicker boards.

    I love this idea for the legs and apron. I'll probably steal it for a hallway table I'm planning with a live edge top!

    You always do nice and creative work.

    Great table David. I think you're absolutely correct about experimentation. It's all part of the journey.

    Haters gonna hate. It ain't easy, but try to ignore them. I guarantee they aren't putting in the effort to do anything worthwhile…too busy hatin' for that! I may not like EVERYthing you make or the way you make it (think CNC), but I keep coming back because I've gotten some great ideas (quite a few, in fact), learned some new things (quite a few, in fact), and been reminded of some things I had forgotten (more than I'd care to admit). Keep up the great work!

    Screw the haters. You rock dude! (I sound like a freaking teenager but i don't care)

    I did a top on a chest kinda like that a couple years ago. Nothing split. I dig your philosophy try it.

  20. Matt Ruth

    August 8, 2018 at 8:37 am

    I think your logic on the top is sound…and I AGREE… experimentation is the best part of making stuff!

    Keep us posted on how it handles the next thirty years!

    I dig these beefy legs. Nice quadralinear legs. This project looks great!

    Are pin nails the same as brad nails or something different?

    The funny thing is, with conditioned spaces like a home, the humidity changes might be gradual enough that you can break rules and it's not even a big deal. There are rules of wood movement, but then there are often glaring exceptions! And like you say, you could just fix it again! It's a superpower!

  24. Robert J. Keller

    Totally agree with the philosophy! If it breaks, just fix it. It's not rocket science!

    Some nights I wake up in sweat and panic thinking I am shadow banned in my favorite channels. I hope not.

    Looks great! One question. To avoid using the pin nailer could you have just used tape and "folded" it all back together?

    I like it. And i you like it that's all that should matter.

    I've made a lot of unconventional woodworking projects that weren't supposed to last. 7 years later, two outdoor resturants are still using them. The untrained eye can't usually tell. That's why people shop at IKEA and Pier 1.

    Shadow blocking sounds like something that happens while shadow boxing…

    How do you connect your K5 to the dust collector? Is that just a Rockler small hose port stuffed into the K5 connector?

    Why not just laminate the legs together instead of doing the miter corners of the lamination we've been stronger

    We're going to need like an annual update on this table… See how well, or not well it's holding together.

    Some may not like the sand in the place where you are joke, I think it's hilarious

    The first song is my favorite beat of yours. It sounds so good.

    I needed these last two videos for tips, huge help thanks.

    Experimentation is fun and it's how we learn things. If we always stuck with tried-and-true, there would never be innovation and everything would like the same. Here's to those who are always thinking outside the box. Love the table, by the way.
