  1. Thanks everyone for the advice. I think I am going to try using a circle jig at the router table and let you know how it goes.
  2. I have a client looking to have a sting ray edge profile on a round table top. Any tips on how to rout this? I'm guessing it is just a chamfer bit on the bottom and a round-over bit on the top, but I have to figure out how to rout both since once wont have any edge for the bearing the ride on. Haven't been able to find any information besides this picture. Thanks, Sean
  3. Thank you everyone for your quick suggestions. I will try out a few of these and see what works!
  4. How would you go about cutting a crosshatch pattern, think multiple half laps to form a grid, that is larger than what a dado stack can accommodate? My dado stack only allows me to cut dadoes up to 3/4 inch but I want to cut a crosshatch panel that uses 1 inch material so each half lap will need to be 1 inch wide. I am trying to find or build a jig that will allow for repeatable cuts since if one cut is a hair off the entire thing will not fit together so marking out each cut wont work. My thought is to use a 1/2 inch dado stack with a box joint jig but I cannot figure out how big the key need
  5. Thanks Everyone for the responses! Once everything is glued up I'll have to do some testing to see how strong the joint is, but even though I was hoping not at add metal, I figured there was a chance I was going to have to. I'll add some pictures once complete or you can follow me on Instagram @fallen.timbers Any thoughts on the movement of the dowels and dowel holes? I would think that each hole and dowel, at only 1/2", would move with the rest of the board and therefore not have the same worry as an entire tenon being glued in place.
  6. I am building a 72 x 30 x 1.5 inch walnut dining table where the legs will be joined to the top using box joints (or finger joints for some), 6 5 inch boards make up the top and legs. I am also building matching benches that are 65x13.4x1.5 with the same box joint construction. While I know box joints are super strong, I am worried that since this only has three sides unlike a typical box that the box joints alone will not be strong enough to limit any side to side wobble. I really don't want to put a cross brace under the table nor use any metal brackets, so my thought was to add dowels to t
