Go forward in time to October 2009.
Please go and see this video of a prototype sidebar for the Zeitgeist journal. The Zeitgeist hackers are kicking ass!
Over the past year I have been slowly learning woodworking. A shelf here and there, a handbag hanger, and other trinkets that didn't require accurate joinery. For the past weeks I've been making the pieces for my first "real" thing, a small table for Luciana.
These are the mortised legs, and the tenoned skirt pieces for the table:
Here is the table, assembled without glue, for a sanity check:
The most useful things in making this were a page on mortise and tenon joints, pages with pictures for cutting mortises and cutting tenons, a cute hack to get rid of the gap between the pieces, and a very nice book on woodworking in general.
I'll glue the table tonight.
