I took a break and put up an new garge door motor. then got back to work. I sanded the drawe and the table i finished with that wiped them down took them over to my finishing room. wiped them down with DNA then put a coat of BLO on. As soon as i was done i remembered i wanted to put dovetail spines in the corners of the drawer. I probably should have waited a day or 2 for the BLO to dry before i cut then but i did not feel like waiting. So i cut them made the splines and glued them in. I also routered the table top and coated that in BLO.

This looks soooo good! Love the way the color deepens when you put on the BLO. Great solution for the drawer runner, too.

Kevin very nice job on the build. And descriptions. Don't think I've ever seen a dovetail spline, nice idea.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

I think I'm addicted to these build threads, so much information! I like the tapered legs, it's gives it a very sharp look, and those dovetail splines are amazing, I might have to attempt something like that soon. Very inspirational thread!

The dovetail spline is from what i heard one of the strongest miter joints out there. I stole the idea from Daren Ill post some pictures of how strong it is

Daren made a much nices one and i just coppied the idea to see if it worked. I believe its called a C or S chair The one i made is 3/4" thick and has 4 splines on each miter joint. I can stand on the back and bounce up and down unlike in the pic where i was more to the front.

That's a damn handsome table.

Just when I start getting good with dovetails somebody shows me something cool like those splines (I hate miters too)! Next project maybe.
