    I might be seeing things wrong, but doesn't the grain run horizontally? I've never seen it configured in the style of an endgrain butcher block.

    That is a sensational bench Kahoy!!
    I like the sliding dovetail approach, makes total sense.

    Thanks Bob! I'm pretty surprised that expansion wouldn't be a problem, considering how much you hear about it online. Even when I make little boxes I take special care to keep it in mind.

  4. Base-to-top joinery versus timber expansion

    Whenever we see dining tables being built, the top is fastened to the base using some method which allows the top to expand: "Buttons", elongated screw holes, figure-8 connectors, etc.

    Thank you guys! I'll start by trying the hot-block method; hopefully without requiring slits. It's scary trying to patch up a finished piece! To tell you the truth I can't remember if the finish was...

    Guys, I'm so disappointed! I made this cabinet as a gift, very inexperienced with veneer... Now about 4 weeks after moving to its new place my cousin sent me the picture below of the veneer bubbling...

    Thank you both. From your descriptions, I think the key to my previous failure was trying to deal with 4 separate sheets to be glued on at the same time.

    Thanks (I think! :)). Any quick/simple tips?

    Preventing veneer from curling

    In the past I've used veneer very sparingly and only on tiny pieces (box lids); no problem. I just tried my first larger piece (cabinet back), and had to use 4 pieces of veneer aligned properly... It...

    I created this map where people can add timber suppliers (and other related items) on a "Woodworker's Map". There should be a few good places there (feel free to add your own!!):

    Ok, that makes a ton of sense. That's my favourite.
    Really appreciate the good ideas.

    Thanks Elan! I've never considered using a thick back; that definitely makes some sense. If you do that, I assume you're not using a groove for it, just a rebate. How do you fix the back to the...

    Hey guys; I'm going to build a wall-hanging whiskey cabinet, and I'm wondering what is a good way to attach a French cleat for hanging.
