I am starting a cherry table project this weekend. I just got back from the
lumber yard $250.00 for the lumber. I am semi-copying the design from a
catalog (thanks for the dimensions Ethan Allen!!. (By the way the table
sells for $1,200.- Ouch!)
For the legs the Woman wants them 2.5" at the top and tapering down to some
dimension to be determined. I am going to laminate 3 4/4 boards to get the
required width. I have never done this before. Here is how I plan on doing
Rough cut to width and face joint all joining faces. Apply glue and clamp
the piss out of it. Clean one edge, joint and rip other side etc.
Is there something I need to really pay attention to in doing this
lamination? Is it easier than I think? I think I am worried about seeing
small voids between laminations after I rip to width.
