Final Butcher Assembly

Leave a comment

It took a while (about 3 trips to the shop), but it’s finally time to put the top together. In the picture below are the 4 sub assemblies I made on the prior trip to the shop. At this point they have made numerous trips through the planer to get them flat and equal thickness. Normally I would have done this mostly with my wide belt drum sander, but it was almost 100 degrees outside and my shop doesn’t have AC (so speed was of the essence). After this point in the process I jointed one edge of each piece and cut a parallel side with the table saw. To do the final assembly, I used biscuits to help keep the tops of the pieces flush. On my next visit to the shop we’ll see how well that worked…
