    help with doing breadboard ends

    hello all,

    well finally got some shop time in this weekend and worked on this a little more . (ok i cant figure out how to put the pics in the body of the message like some smart folks here) so i guess you will have to click for yourselves

    the first few are of an almost complete lathe chisel case for our freind joan

    the next ones are of a coffee table for my daughter that we started today with rough cut lumber from a friends woods close by home .

    i do have a question or two about the table ::
    #1 i have never done breadboard ends , i have seen pictures and a video clip maybe , but i haven't actually seen how they get attached to table top

    #2 my daughter wants kind of a plain jane design , but i think i should give the table top or atleast the stretchers some design details . any ideas for this ?

    i have plans to taper the legs from 1 1/2" square to 1"or 3/4"
    square on the bottom , is that too small ? and do i have to taper 2 sides or all 4 ? this is a first for me any help will be greatly appreciated thanks

    p.s. man i love my hock replacement plane blades
