  1. Haha i think beefy legs are the way to go for things. I think coffee table might have to be it. There really aren't other uses for it unless im willing to cut it.
  2. Okay! I dont know if this is the right thread for this, but im going to go with it. So after my disaster of a first project with the bench with framing wood/ soft. :) i found a guy in town who sells all hardwoods. Mills it and works with farmers and loggers. Supposedly hes kind of the guy in town i guess. He has a crack-load of stacks of wood drying out, and a kiln, so hes always turning out dry wood.

  3. Is this the one your talking about? https://www.rockler.com/rockler-s-complete-dovetail-jig?country=US&sid=V91040&promo=shopping&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_content=&utm_campaign=PL&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIm6XslsrH7gIVi4nICh1GLgVeEAQYBiABEgK4hPD_BwE
  4. Thank you everyone for your input and Acceptance! Never thought i would get so much feedback and help so fast.. Its really appreciated. Ive decided to forgo the strenuous project of trying to fix it and try something else. I still love the piece and going to keep it as a remembrance. Ive seen alot of videos on youtube today on advice from @drzaius. Going to try some finger joints on the table saw or my router. Havent decided which yet but excited to try. Also make some jigs to make my life easier for repeat pieces. I just love the look of it, you can tell thats craftsmanship when it fits
  5. So i made this bench for my first project into woodworking. While i was gluing up the boards just weren't flat. i was sure when i screw them down they would suck in. But they didnt. so now i have a bunch of gaps between 2" and 1" boards. Now when i was all sanded i said this wont look bad. I'm sure after i stain it wont be noticed. Now as you can see i have 3 coats of poly on it. My question is. Between the boards there is nothing i can see through it. Can i use epoxy to fill those gaps maybe just to below the surface line. just tape off underneath and use a dark epoxy on it. other than th
