I owe you a beer or two. I am working on a conference table that is 8/4 x
60"x96" . To big for even my own bad self to move around safely so I
created a bastardized version of your
tilting workbench I spyed on your website. Simple but great idea thanks!
spoken aloud: eight quarter
means 8 quarter inches thick, or, roughly, two inches.
generally figured on rough, not-yet-planed, timber
supposed to account for shrinkage in the drying process, so actual
thickness at the time YOU come into the timber's life may vary.
8/4 is useful for many projects, but brings some new challenges, and tools.
not that many years down the learning curve...
Correct. For me this started out as 4, 10/4 (2 1/2") x16"x100" bookmatch cut
roughcut walnut planks (Thanks Mike! Johnson Creek Hardwoods)
Ripped then jointed to 15"
Put the 15" General Int. Planer to the test of it's life and it easily
double biscuit edge joined in 3 steps, 4boards to 2 then 2 glueups to one
big ass massive tabletop you could park a truck on
Yes indeed, 6 Bessey 60" kbodys
15" planer 3HP worked well but 5hp woulda been nice
in/out feed tables for the jointer
Temporary assembly bench to accomodate the size of the project
Lot's o practice burnishing the scrapers
look on the owner to be's face.... Priceless
