Finishing up the all odds and ends of a kitchen project takes up a lot of shop time, but this project does manage to get some sporadic work <especially when the shop driveway is blocked for a couple of hours by a moving truck, effectively locking me in>
All joinery glued up and complete ... top and shelf still need to be sanded, cut to proper dimensions, edge beveled and attached:

https://picasaweb.google.com/karlcaillouet/ArtsCraftsHallTable?authkey=Gv1sRgCKCenYudjdHmeQ#5582803086210061698 Very nice and really clean lines. With your permission, I'll steal the image for a future project of my own.

I meant to ask since I haven't followed all your comments on this construction. Do you hand cut your mortices with a drill and then clean it up with a chisel on a project like this or do you use some kind of mortise machine?
Don't know if I mentioned it, but my fear of attempting real mortise and tenon construction led me to construct my garden table feet each with two pieces of 2x10 cedar. On each I cut a half lap with the tablesaw dado blade and then glued the two pieces together to form through mortises. Then I cut tenons on each end of the table legs and glued them in.
This 'shortcut' process along with the additional cost that 4x10 cedar planks would have cost me, were my mitigating factors when deciding on contruction.

I cut square mortises for "traditional" M&T joints with a Delta, hollow chisel, mortiser; and mortises for loose tenons with a Multi-Router.
Both were used on this particular project.

Nothing wrong with that ...

Ready for a wax, and a wedding bow:
https://picasaweb.google.com/karlcaillouet/ArtsCraftsHallTable?authkey=Gv1sRgCKCenYudjdHmeQ#5583629056112976642
Nice to have this "spare time" project completed _BEFORE_ the wedding next weekend!
<with everything else going on, an on time completion was looking doubtful for a while>
And, it gave me a chance to try the new Earlex SprayStation 5000 for the first time. Damned glad I don't do finishing for a living, but the Earlex made spraying a few coats of shellac a piece o' cake, and it's soooo easy to cleanup!

in.
A wedding?? Somebody is getting married?? Anybody we know??
Finding a nice little spray unit will definitely make life easier. Easy cleanup sounds like a nice bonus.
I trust you will not be in charge of the color selection or the tying of the bow!
Have fun at the wedding.

NICE! I like clean lines. I'm sortakinda stuck in BauhausMetropolitanMission mode these days with a hint of Greene & Greene tossed in for good measure.
Soooo you decided on an ESS5K, eh? I have walked around and fondled that thing a dozen times but never made the move. What has held me back is how much noisier it is than other turbine systems I have played with. I'm not even sure that means much, but to me, noise = wear. The price is awesome for the quality so I might have to wear earmuffs. I'm an Iwata HVLP pot-fed (DeVilbiss pot) guy because I like the 'no- cup-dangling off my arm-being-able to spray-upside-down' aspect of pot- fed systems. But clean-up is such a bitch that I rather drive half hour to use my buddy's spraybooth. I am thinking that ESS5K will fit the bill for smaller jobs without all the damned @#$%^&* cleanup. Has the inability to adjust the width of the fan (on the fly) hindered you much? When I spray, I am always adjusting fluid and fan as the target I'm spraying changes... IOW, when spraying the edge of a shelf/ door does that fan stay wide open?

Say what?
(I didn't find it that loud ... but artillery fire, and standing next to drummers will do that to you)

I have previously used an el cheapo $100 CH unit that's been just about worn out in the past ten years, so I'm used to trying to compensate, with technique (poor) and positioning, for the lack of adjustments found in the higher priced, pro units.
The Earlex 5000 is between these cheap (but usable) units, and the low end of the pro HVLP setups. The obvious difference between the Earlex 5000 and the $100 units (CH, HF, etc.) is much higher quality parts, and more metal less plastic in the former. But, AFAICT, they all share the same minimal fan and material flow adjustments, or lack thereof.
That said, I was surprised by the increase in quality of spray coverage and just how adjustable the results were with the Earlex adjustments ... this is one damn fine unit for those who don't need expensive pro gear for their own personal projects, but who can still get excellent results with a mid priced unit and a little experience and practice.
Hell, Tony Rice makes a Sears SilverTone sound like Clarence White's old D-28.
