    Re: Stickley #599 Trestle Table Build.

    I meant actual top. Thanks. I doubt it will fall off too.

    A follow up. Are the dowels loose for when you knock it down?

      Great thread! very informative. Love the fact that you will cut a new piece rather than patch the mistake.

          Gary,
          As always, your work is an inspiration. I can't say I'd be as likely to go for a redo on the cap. Call me a slacker, but I just didn't inherit quite the same perfectionist gene. Great work, and thanks for posting.

            Moving Forward Again...

            Thanks for the input about the screwup on the cap guys.
            But after thinking hard about it my guts are saying to make another one.
            I can't have the ghost of Stickley looking over my shoulder and shaking his head...
            So the last trip into my shop was to make a third cap.

            One mistake will buy you a few other problems.
            This new cap is just a tad thicker. Less than a 64th" but it is thicker.
            Now when I do my tenons I will have to set my router up two times to get the tenons the right width...
            Not a problem though as Gus will be happy now...
            Now for some big tenons on the top of the legs.

                  Or if you have a drum sander you can get the same consistent across all its length.

                      I'm enjoying your build Gary, some nice work taking place here. That double sided tape can really take hold if you use too much, I took off a layer of ply trying to get the template of the back legs of the chair lol.
                      I'm going to use a router on the legs this time, its going to save a load of rasp work. Thanks for sharing -Wayne.

                          An Unexpected Break...

                          Well it looks like we have to be a little quiet in the shop for the next few nights...

                          My wife got a little miniature pony for the grand kids a few weeks ago.
                          We were wondering why she was so over weight and were assured a diet would take care of that.
                          Mother nature took care of the extra weight last night...
                          She was in foal and this morning my wife was greeted by Issy and a brand new stud colt.
                          We have had lots of foals born here but never one this size. Our golden retriever is bigger than this little stud colt...
                          Mom and baby are doing just fine. However they will be in the barn for a few nights which is on the other side of my shop.

                          The boss has said no big machines running for a couple of nights.
                          Then we will quickley get the little one used to the machines as all the other horses are..

                              Very cool!

                              The good news is you can now use one of your 'couple' hand planes

                                Wow. He is small, fuzzy and very cute. My cousin has a few mini horses on their acreage West of Stony Plain and I jokingly said he needs at least six to hook up to a small wagon or cutter.

                                Great thread. I'm looking forward to more photos.
