Rear Top Width
Posted 01 February 2012 - 09:26 PM
Maybe this is being overly nitpicky but given the expense of the project it terms of my time and money I wanted to get everyones opinion before I drive on
I milled up all my top boards and the width of the rear table with 7 boards is 10 7/8 or 1/4 shy of the plan dimensions. I think I have 2 choices. The easiest is to leave it at that and make the gap stop a 1/4 inch thicker.
The other choice is to either get another 8/8 board or mill the smallest board down some more and get an eight piece of 4/4 maple
Any recommendations as the best coarse of action.

A wider gap stop is a good solution, but if you haven't milled up your front slab yet you could always add the 1/4" to the front slab too. Of course, that changes the endcap slightly.

The thicker gap may be an advantage in dropping clamps into the slot.
