Yes - not too bad - they're a pig to get right though, especially in wood as hard as maple. I've now got my table saw setup spot-on (for another project) and found this is pretty important!Noel":2i2bmf12 said:Excellent. Mitres worked out really well.
It's etched - can't remember what it's called - something like satin. Quite a standard type of glass though. It's toughened too.jasonB":1wsokrz4 said:Very nice table, is that white laminate glass or etched on the underside :?:
It's not quite so immaculate now after building an aquarium cabinet out of veneered MDF - first time I've worked properly with MDF - what a mess, even with the dust extractor running! Lovely clean, accurate cuts thoughAragorn":2ayknmgu said:Crisp, elegant, simple and stylish.
Perfectly executed mitres (praying on your behalf that they stay together!)
Good job! Well done!
For future reference, photos of that immaculate workshop should be banned. What if TPTB see them over my shoulder :shock: :wink:
Fingers crossed, they will be fine.Digizz":2ot73acp said:The mitres are joined with a couple of No20 biscuits on each joint - hopefully they should stay together - any reason they wont???
Well hopefully, it's OK - it's been in the house finished for 6 months already! Wouldn't the wood move in the same direction across the mitre anyway ???Aragorn":geqc1u20 said:Fingers crossed, they will be fine.Digizz":geqc1u20 said:The mitres are joined with a couple of No20 biscuits on each joint - hopefully they should stay together - any reason they wont???
I don't know what the time scale is for safety in terms of wood movement... One lot of each season probably!
Mitres have a tendancy to open up if the wood hasn't been well seasoned.
Don't mean to worry you. They will probably be absolutely fine.
Let's have a photo in 6 months time :wink:
