A Coffee Table / Sofa Table Set


Recommended Posts

Well, a side project to my main project to not lose any time ... My mom requested this for her shop so we shall see how it goes.

The inspiration came from this:

So we shall see how this goes 🙂

Got my dimensions figured out ...

Drawing out ... can never have enough buckets to get your round corners haha!

a ductape adapter always works out well

Finished with the 2 leg templates ... 

 

Off to the store to buy some lumber for both projects now. Going to try out Ash for this set ... never used it before and for $2.30 BF it seems reasonable. 

 

2 questions, for now:

1)What is easier to attach these onto the hardwood for templating? Is it double sided sticky tape, or the blue tape and super glue trick ... not sure what is easier to do and easier to clean up. 

2) Anything I should to do protect the MDF from break or tearing apart etc etc? 

Thoughts?

Blue tape and super glue is faster and easier to clean up.  Especially when it comes to the project pieces and for this you will be having a lot of them.  Its even faster with the CA glue actuator spray. 

Just a quick coat of shellac or rattle can clear finish of any kind on the edges of you MDF templates.

That is going to be one hell of a glue up. I don’t envy you at all. 😁

Haha. Yaaaa glueing. I don’t want to think about that yet lol. I got plenty of routing to do that hopefully goes well first though.
