Table Glue-Up

Nancy and Andrew lay out the table legs and aprons for the glue-up.

Nancy and Andrew glue-up the legs while Tracy and Adam wipe off any glue that might have spilled out from the mortises.

It takes a lot of folks for the job so, be sure to have classmates and/or friends near by!

Andrew and Adam assemble the legs and tenons so, a drawer will fit between the top two braces.

Tracy and Adam clamp the width first. They work fast before the glue sets up!

Tracy continues to wipe any excess glue off the wood. You go girl!

Adam and Andrew clamp and measure the diagonal of the table to make sure it is square.

It is also important to measure the diagonal from the bottom of the legs.

Phillip sands the last leg for his "Octopus" table. Shannon and Ginny discuss various options for Ginny's oval table top.
