That's the most important part of this project. So I really wanted to put a lot of thought into how the boards lined up. So the way that these boards will be joined is they'll be joined at the sapwood, and what that should do is hide the scene and give this sort of a live edge. The top up. I made sure that I've got my clamps ready. I've got my glue and I've got some water, so I can clean up when I finish gluing. The top up. I've also got glue blocks. It's good to have glue blocks for when the clamps on top of the table right, it's not too heavy, but hey. So it's going to be upright. Let me talk like this. That's one and then you're hanging on the tapes. You get the lifts a little all right super.
The tabletop is now upside down, and now I'm going to use the compass that I used to make the template and I'll put the point of the compass into the center of the circle in the center was made when I originally made the circle. So now I'm just going to tap that with the hammer now I'll, put the pencil back into the compass and trace the circle. Now, ultimately, the size of the circle will depend on how far away the point is from the blade because I'll spin the whole table top on that access point.
But I wanted to have the circle in place, so I could get the edge of the tabletop right up, snug against the blade and I'll do that. First, by trimming to the line with the circular saw. I've got the tabletop up on the jig and this took a little work to get to where I am right now and if I get a perfect circle on this tabletop, maybe I'll do a short video on this jig. So, let's hope for the best and see what happens all right. Well, that worked out pretty good, and the next step is to shape the bottom.
I'm going to drill a hole in my compass, three inches from the edge of the table and make another circle, and that's basically an indication line. I don't want to go past that line when I'm shaping and what I'm trying to do is. When you look at the tabletop, it will appear to be about a quarter of an inch thick and just give it a lighter feel and you'll also want a reference line on the edge of the table. Yeah. Okay. Well, after about five or six hours of shaping and Sandy, I'm ready to finish the tabletop.
