Great video. I won’t pick on you for the accent (or lack of it), being from Alabama. We’re used to getting picked on. Everybody asks us to say, “Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear?”

Mike From Texas says:

Great table and video!! Thank you for sharing your work. One question: what dust mask were you wearing? It looks like those rz masks I’ve seen.

Travis Obenhuber says:

I thought the accent was fun. Just deepens YouTube personality. Great project and interesting box joint method. I’ll keep it in mind because I love using thick construction materials. Keep it up.

Donald Callahan says:

Wonderful project, beautiful wood, great design, excellent narrative. The drawer & live edge are good focal points. In my nearly 50 years of woodworking, there have been few times when I DIDN’T have to make an “adjustment” to a joint or design during the cut operation. You are doing well!

African Cichlids says:

looks good , lose the annoying background musik

Big Mike is talking says:

Draw……er drawer drawwwwerrrrrr.

BronkBuilt says:

Very nicely done! Love the dowel and spring idea.

Loal Vance says:

When you bugger up the edges of a box joint (or dovetail joint) you can often use a sharp chisel to clean the mistake up, and then glue in a small filler block. Once the glue has dried you can either re-cut the joint with your jig, hand cut it with a thin-kerf saw (Japanese saws work great), or even pare it back slowly and carefully with your chisel. Saves having to cut the whole board and adjust everything else, or start over. The repair is almost always virtually invisible, and leaves your joint tight and professional looking. Practice the technique on some scrap first, but it works great and will save you a lot of $$ and time when you are working with expensive hardwoods. Good luck!

Love the use of ambrosia maple – keep woodworking and those skills will get better. Looks nice though for a somewhat newbie woodworker.

Drawer – correct pronunciation is phonetically ‘droar’ – put a ‘d’ in front of ‘roar’ – as in what sound a lion might make.

Awesome project Tamar, love the brass dowels and to make for feel a little better we say draw the same way in the uk.

Kai says:

respect ….respect

matt mcl says:

Great build, really dig that maple, will def need to incorporate it into a project one day. And yeah your accent, good stuff!

Víctor M Rodas says:

I really enjoyed this video… nice work! I’d never considered using brass in woodworking but it looks really chic; I’ll give it a try later. Keep the videos coming. Greetings from México

DAVID 24 says:

Great job it looks amazing

Bruce A. Ulrich says:

I really like the design of this piece! Nice job. and I agree with you, the box joints really add a lot. Good call cutting it off when you weren’t happy with the joint.

Shawn Henry says:

One thousand likes!

Well done.

Son of a Diddly says:

Throw some heavy fabrics up on the wall to kill the echoes
