Piecrust Tilt Top Table

Updated: Jan 17, 2018


Hi friends It’s been a long time since I posted my last project, I’ve had some but nothing I felt of consequence. Here is a Piecrust table I’ve been working on and off (mostly off)since July of 2009 I started a blog on it and never got that finished .My apologies to those who were following it. http://lumberjocks.com/a1Jim/blog/10077 This project was a big experiment for me since I’d never carved anything before and had never made a table anything like it before. I usually don’t use plans but this was a project I didn’t have a clue where to start so I used Charles Neil’s Router technique for the top and got the other details from a book called “Making a Piecrust Tea Table by Tom Heller & Ron Clarkson” pretty much a step by step book. I’m a little underwhelmed with the end product but as someone’s tagline says”better done than perfect” as if there really are perfect projects?


Thanks to my good friend Charles Neil for his great technique and for his help with finishing and other questions.
