that turned out great!

I may be a glue bit convert myself. I got the Bosch 1/2" shank router bit yesterday. So now the $64.00 question.... how are the ends fastened or are they? They look seamless like they are glued to the length. It's a nice finish and from what you say easy to do as well. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Thx Bill, the breadboard ends are standard design, doweled with three dowels for 2 1/2" center with glue across the 2 1/2". The rest is free floating, doweled with elongated holes in the tongue. Interesting, with the finish the top can move as much as 1/4" across the BB ends in three days, kind of breathing in and out.

The ends look seamless, as I dropped the outfeed table on my jointer a fraction to joint the BB ends, so the are slightly concave, meaning if one pulls the center glued 2 1/2" tight the BB closes the possible gaps at each end.

Next top I do, I will try the normal edge glue using cauls, I have never done that before. A joint bit takes a lot of practice, but once you have it mastered it works real well.

I was never a big fan of a BB end, because of a possible loose looking fit...that there is an excellent solution.

Beautiful top you made.
