    and if you look close, the chairs don't match. These are the old ones. The new ones are now in the shop and should complete this month.

    And I squeezed in a horizontal router table, with adjustable top as well. Click image for larger version.

    Wow, you have been busy indeed! Looks like the time spent has been very productive, though.

    You, sir have been a busy man. I do have a question. The horizontal router table, I seen pictures on the internet, and I've wondered what is the advantage to a horizontal one. Is it for a specific purpose, like easier to make tenons with or something?

    My two sense on this .. fixture the workpiece in position, set up should allow for repeatability of multiple pieces, ie mortising multiple chair legs. Accurately position the router via the raising/lowering mechanism and the sled stop blocks. Use the X-Y motion of the sled to make the mortises, tenons, etc. Have to put in multiple mortises on a single piece? Again, repeatable via the accuracy of the raising/lowering (z-axis) mechanism. Have to make raised panels, can use the smaller diameter bits that have the profile parallel to the axis of the bit and not the large diameter bits where the profile is perpendicular to the axis of the bit. Slide the panel on the table, large flat surface for good control. Hope this helps.

    If others have comments, please chime in.

    Well, it has been way longer than a month .. but the kitchen chairs are finally complete and delivered. Long COLD winter did not allow the garage time .. and then there was the 'working two jobs thing'.

    Nice job. I like the little dinning booth.

    Makes me think of Breakfast. Sitting there waiting for it be done and drinking coffee. Maybe some Bacon and fried eggs and toast.

    It always seems more family freindly to eat in a booth than at a big formal table.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
