Robert that table is way cool and we all know that keeping the wife happy is a very good thing. Did you design the table or find some plans somewhere?

I love looking at your work.

Mark

My daughter-in-law asked me to look at a small dinner table that was built with the same folding table sections a few years ago at a local furniture store. I thought it was a neat setup. I just added some extra supports and some decorative cutting to the design.

It's funny how the butterfly effect works. Robert gets a happy wife by building a killer table in utah. He is proud of said table and post it on camheads to gloat of his above par design skills and masterful use of his CAMaster. While at dinner with his wife and kids in Calhoun Georgia I get the buzz of an incoming email on my iPhone. I check my mail and hit the link. (movie starts) what are you looking at. "oh Roberts table he built for his wife using his router". Oh yea can i see? Sure! And bam the cause and effect came full circle. A happy wife in Utah = a overworked husband in GA.

Robert great job! Keep up the great work and keep posting. You inspire us all, even our wives.

Yea that butterfly effect. It's a funny thing. Joey (or anyone else) here is the basic file in Aspire.

You can build it how your wife wants it. (I don't want you getting overworked)
I would build the table legs with some extra 3/4" x 3" wide ply with a 3/8" rabbit in the middle and attach them to the legs. It makes the plywood like a wooden I beam and will not wiggle. Also in the file I have it setup for a 3/4" band of wood going around the outer perimeter to cover up the ply edge. You can use it or not.

Default Arrow of light prop for our pack

Here is a video a recent job I did. It's a prop I made for our cub pack. I went to the local big box lumber yard and got some 2 by 4's and basically just added some v-carving letters. I saw a similar one that someone posted on the web. They did some wood burning for their lettering. It gave me some ideas, and this is what I came up with.

Default Queen Anne corner table.

This is a test piece of furniture, that I tried. I am planning on making a larger
project with the same type of technique I did on the Queen Anne table.
