  1. This is really great stuff – I just bought the plans and can't wait to start building this thing!! My only concern is that I won't be able to fit the table out my front door if I ever move (even with the top removed), so I want to be able to remove the two end pieces from the lengthwise pieces. Any suggestions for keeping the thing solid and stable even without the dovetails and center beam tenons permanently glued in?

  2. I'm wondering about the wood shrinkage you have seen over time. Is it signifigant? have you had to trim down the breadboards a little, or has it stayed pretty close to the same size?

  3. Nice build. I have a similar but older Delta Contractor saw and even with a newer pretty sharp CMT ripping blade I struggle to cut through thicker long boards like that. Do you find your saw struggles at times?

  4. Wholly mackerel this guy is old school! Must take 17 years to build that table. I’m so tempted to send him a router and planer πŸ˜‚. Nice job!!!
