05 Nov Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – November 5, 2018
Getting the last large items taken care of on the sideboard. I built and installed the adjustable shelf system and got started on the doors. I also picked up a Huot drill cabinet at an auction which has made my twist drill organization so much better!

Cookie Table by John
believe the top is maple with the legs and stretchers made from walnut. I recall in a recent update of yours on cutting cookies you stated that you try to cut them with the top and bottom parallel to each other. I’m not sure why this would be the preferred method. As you can see in the side view of my table there is a striking difference in thickness across the top. In nature there are few things that are perfectly flat and parallel. Many stumps exhibit non linear shapes and depth where root growth comes in contact with the ground, especially on sloped ground. When I cut trees I look for ways to incorporate as much of the tree’s unique shapes as possible. Without parallel cookie surfaces one is faced with the challenge of designing legs of unequal length with the need for solving the challenge by incorporating compound miter angles
