Takin’ the tool to the wood This weekend I worked on making a cutting board for a friend, but I also managed to squeak in a little time in on the bed side table that I’m starting. Using my “power” jointer to create the first edge. Then I ripped the legs from an 8/4 piece of cherry. Then cut 4 same sized leg blanks with a tiny bit left over from the 8′ ripped section. This is what the final piece will look like.
