Console Table cont…

Got to spend a little more time tweaking and refining the console table.
The top and bottom shelfs were finished and rough sanded. The final height of the bottom shelf was decided and the legs have all been given a slight taper.

Marking out the taper

For the sake of a little practice I hand planed the tapers instead of cutting them on the bandsaw.

The ends of the legs were marked on the inside faces with a 6mm taper and ran 150mm up the leg.

Vic Ash The majority of stock removal was done with a scrub plane. I am really starting to like this plane more and more. Boy does it remove stock fast….

Vic Ash Shavings from the scrub plane were around .75-95mm thick no wonder it took less than 2 dozen strokes to get the taper down.

Vic Ash Then a quick going over with a jack plane to the line.

Vic Ash And ofcourse another dry fit , this time in the location its destined to end up in 😉
