This week the TV stand top was glued together. The inside of the maple and center insert (oak) was rabbet jointed as shown below. Then I glued them together using titebond. I’m going to add some hardware to the underside of this to reinforce all the glue joints.
This project turned into more of an experiment than anything else. I’m still not sure if I like the maple and oak contrast. There are techniques and joints I would rather use but I just do not have the equipment for them yet. I like to see what I can do with what is available to me, first.
Next step will be taking this to a mill and having it planed down smooth. Unfortunately, I do not own a 24″ planer yet so paying someone to run it through quick is my only option.
