    Here are a few of my recent pieces I've made in the last few months. A lot are inspired by the Greg Klassen design. That look really speaks to me since I've spent a ton of time in canyons on rivers in my life with whitewater kayaking.

    Keep up the good work on here guys. I love seeing everyone's projects, and I enjoy learning from you guys as well.

    What's the trick for getting the wood and glass cut/routed with such close tolerance? Got any pics of the process?

    Hi Carl,

    @Karl_TN

    I've done about 25 of the river tables with the inlaid glass, and I don't really have any tricks, other than patience and nervousness every time. I do the glass template first, then cut the glass, then lay the glass on the table and outline it as close as possible.

    Then I freehand with the router up to the line a little at a time, then test fit about 10 or 15 times making minor adjustments until it finally fits it and I begin to breathe a sigh of relief! Sometimes I do the routing in multiple sessions to give the eyes and brain some time to relax. I've got it down now were a coffee table size I can usually get inlaid in about 3 hours of router and sanding work.

    It's been a process of learning how to do it, but it's been fun an challenging.

    Jason

    Oh, and it's super messy! Not quite as bad as you wood turners deal with, but it's a lot of fine dust from the router.

    The biggest mess maker is those durn mini wood cinder blocks. Did you see that mess that @Kenbo had on his floor? What a slob, I don’t know how that guy sleeps at night.

    :scare3:

    Do you have a vacuum attached to your router? That helps big time with the dust. It’s a pain to pull the hose around but well worth the effort IMO.

    Delicious! I have several nice black walnut slabs that I’m holding back for these. I just can’t come to an agreement with myself on a leg concept that fits my mind.

    I would use a collet on the router and use the glass as a template and cut out a piece of 1/8 plywood. Then clamp that on the wood as a reverse template the distance from outside of router to cutter with no collet and now you have a router guide to cut your line . Ps put paper and tape on glass so when sliding router across top of glass no scratches. Should take less then an hour and dead accurate.

    Very informative on the process. I've seen River Tables with resin in the middle, but not glass. Love both! Chuck

    Super cool stuff there Jason @whitewaterjay . Do you just go to a glass supplier and give them a template and say...cut this? Curious, we were looking at some neat glass for a shower door and while outside our pay grade, I know they can cut irregular edges and then temper it.
