Although I’m still finishing up my latest commission, I have started on my next project, a pair of staked-leg tables from Christopher Schwarz’s, Anarchist’s Design Book. I’m making the first one out of white oak, and the second out of African makore.
Although Chris likes to use a bandsaw to cut his round table tops out, I prefer a router on a trammel. Here is the first top being cut out.
This first table will be finished with a Scandinavian soap finish, which will be a first for me. Wish me luck.

What are those old-fashioned clamps doing in the middle of your table?!?
That “old fashioned” clamp is gripping the central pin, so the trammel won’t ride up when I push down on the router.
