dining table with 2 chairs

In elm with burr top to table and burr seats on chairs.

table corner

In case the straight edge to edge jointing of boards is considered to make life too easy, this detail shows the curved jointing between adjacent burr elm boards. The advantage confered by curved jointing when working with burrs is that it allows the retention of patches of burr which would be lost with straight-edge jointing.  For the technically minded, a mating pair of curved edges is produced by copy-routing from matched MDF templates.  For the sinewy curves involved in this table, the templates themselves can be produced quite successfully with one single cut with a  portable jigsaw provided sufficient confidence is displayed. (All rather cryptic but these hints might prove helpful if you’re thinking of trying it).

    Well, at the risk of defending Ethridge, the reitlay is that he is in “lose/lose” position. Look at it from the prospective of a little king.First way to lose- after all those years in the minority, wondering why he bothers even showing up for work, he has scored a seat on the best committee in the House — where you get to give out taxpayer $ to name stuff after yourself. So why forgo having your name memorialized for eternity on a bridge or highway rest stop so that you can be elected to the Senate and start at the bottom – where he will end up on some committee no one ever heard of, such as the committee on aging. Oh, wait, that was Mrs. Dole.Second way to lose- he actually loses the race for Senate. Now he does not have a seat on any committee – anywhere! No one will remember his name in six months, let alone for eternity…I do agree with mungo on this point though. Having a press conference to say you are not running, but would have won if you did (“the seat is winnable”), is pretty funny.- anonyman (not cynical, just lost my political virginity in DC)
