Final Coffee Table Post – Glam Shots included Here are a few more pictures of my work on the coffee table and a bit of the blow by blow. Oh and a little bit on how I store my hide glue. I used my Jeff Hamilton panel gauge to size my shelf panel. I marked out the bevels on the legs and cut them with my rip saw. Then I used my No. 4 to clean up the bevels. Walnut strip in the shelf. And then added my mark and date. For the captured tongue on the shelf I used my side rabbet plane to widening the mortise. I used chalk to check the fit. A coat of shellac first and then the wipe on poly. Here’s how I store my hide glue. Pour it in an ice cube tray and store the hide cubes in a container in the fridge. Then only take out what you need. Glam shots Glam shot 2 The end!
