A feather board for the table saw because the fact that this will actually allow you to have a third hand, push the wood towards the blade or towards the side, so it pins it up against and makes a nice clean, smooth edge guaranteed. You just need to make sure you have a little pressure on the end of the board, so you know that you're cutting the wood perfectly straight in trust me you're, going to want straight wood for this project. Once again, with cutting your first piece, you will proceed to your second piece, doing the same exact steps measuring it out and readjusting your table saw along with your feather board now, in all reality, I found by the board extremely helpful in this project. It's always nice to have third hands and it allows you to have perfect pressure on the side of the board while pushing through just make sure you don't have too much pressure, because they'll tend jam up on you on a side note, I purchase a ultrafine 82 blade which allow me to cut extremely clean lines just a flag once you have all your fourth cuts.
First, before that, my pipe clamps down just so I don't get gooey underwear once you have it boards up now. The table is only three feet from hand. Clamps you're going to have to make sure you have plenty of these and then some wood sides, locking I'm using wood form the headline round. But if you don't have that, you can always use some whatever wood that you have lying around and just cut it to size. I also have some wood bracing I'll, be playing and I actually covered it with tape, because wood glue tends to stick to most wood products. Yeah good idea, you first going to have all your boards up on edge.
So it's going to be easier to apply the glue itself. I'm using a roller with type on 2 and type on doing is a great wood glue and in all reality, you can get a number of different types of wood glue, but these ones you want. I prefer just make sure you applied glue to both sides. You want to overdo on the glue, but making sure that both sides are fully covered with glue is key for this step now you're taking your wood blocks and applying it between the wood table and the clamp itself. This will give you a nice even pressure and will not damage the size of the boards. You then take your wood bracing, along with your wood hand, clamps and tighten it down now, just because the wood looks flat and straight doesn't mean that it is flat straight. So you might see little variances when you're cleaning all this wood together, which is why you have this bracing there to get a nice flat surface mia. Well, you really want to see when tightening these clamps have seen the wood glue actually pour out of the scene.
That way, you know you have a good overall connection and just make sure you have plenty of crimps, because I needed every single one of these and it's just half the table, allow the glue to fully dry it and then go ahead and start a little bit. Clamp and move on to the next section. You don't have to wait for hours, but I did because I want to make sure it was fully dry. As I'm laying out the second section, I actually noticed that one of the boards had some character on top. Well, you know what go ahead and keep that, because it's just going to add more character to your table overall and that's what I want. I want my table to have character. That would be some for an old table right, I'm all right, yeah, all right now. What's the second section of your table is fully dried, go ahead and remove the clamps and proceed to actually installing both of sections of the table together, oh yeah, again same process with glue clamp it together, bing bang boom you're done who says bing bang boom anymore, But how was that? I don't know in any case just make sure you're doing your due diligence with this clamping maquette. It saves you in the long run and another thing that saves you long run is clean up your glue, make sure you clean up before it dries because that will save you a lot of headaches. Now, look at that. We have to actually resemble the table yeah.
Next, up train, you should go saw and measure from your blade to the end of the guard plate then go ahead and transfer that measurement to the wood end of the table itself. Mark boy look speed square and then they go ahead and take some type of level or other flat straight device, clamp it to the table and then run your skill across now. I have to do this step because of effect. This is almost s3s. Material comes in all different sizes, so you make sure it has to the same length. So you have one fluid table. Okay. Now, once you start inspecting the table, you're going to find that there's going to be some type of fridge, you want them all to be nice flat, perfect just like this, but that's almost impossible. So here comes the hand planner. Now this tool has been around forever and it's personal I'm using it so just F way, there's a little blade on the bottom side of the actual tool and as an adjustment in the midsection and the top. This will allow you to level out certain areas again high spots.
