Spindle Safety

I have been asked to use the spindle at work. However i don't have much experience, i get the basics having used a router table for a while and i also worked at a speakerbox manufacturer, but that just involved swapping one block for another. I've never had to swap cutters and set the blocks up. Are...

I finally got round to starting :roll: I'm going with my original design with the ellipse, as it's for my mum and she likes the idea. I still think the legs look a bit big though. I started by squaring the ends of my legs and making a lipping that will fit. http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee23/se...

Re: Burr Walnut Dining Table

I would like to use the legs if possible, but at the moment i just think they are too big. The edge of the leg to edge of top is only about 70mm i think, which i think is tight. I could make the top bigger though.

If i didn't use them what kind of leg do you see?

If you can't get black hinges you could maybe use brass hinges and colour them black. I used this blue liquid at work recently.
