Well,,,, The temptation is certainly there . I ordered a fishing drone  in prep for the next visit and spent some phone time with a couple of contacts today on fish counts starting up the rivers on Kodiak. I'm there at least in spirit...... :D

A bit of day dreaming and preparing for future makes the work days a bit easier.

I love your long "countertop room"  was that by design, or just luck of the draw?  what will these be setting atop?  single post with a base?  how thick are they?  Nice production, very classy and beautiful.

Can't wait to see this one.  How thick are the pieces?  Did you cut them out with a pattern on a router or shaper?

The room itself is an insulated "wind tunnel" that we can loft , sand , and finish pieces with heated /filtered air. The 40 foot torsion box table is a great reference to keep things flat.
 The tops are blind spline construction using Baltic birch plywood. A couple of years ago I switched to this style of internal joinery because it is fast to machine and has very consistent results that never fail. You can even dial in the amount of clearance in the joint depending on what type of glue you are using. Very consistent!
The corners of these tables are a flared radius called out in the specs by the designers. I had to draw, then build one corner, then mirror image it to the opposite side to keep things perfectly even. You'll notice that in the template I did not put the 2 corners together until I had batch cut all of the table blanks exactly identical, then I put stretchers on the 2 corners and glued them in place for the master end template. This ensures that everything is perfectly balanced and symmetrical to the actual blank.
I started with rough 3" thick slabs from the kiln and it took 3 weeks to creep up on the final blanks at 1-1/4" thick. The original specs were for 2-1/4" and mid stream in my building the customer switched to 1-1/4.
This weekend I am doing spot filling and getting ready to bullnose all of the edges at one time. Then the tedious finishing process begins.
