    The outside is glued and has a recessed screw about every 2ft
    Then filled the screw hole with a dowel

    Very nice table and thank godness for her muscles. You keeping table for yourself or heading out to someone else? Can't wait to see what you do for a base on this thing.

    Sounds like a cool project for them. Hopefully we'll be able to get some final pics. I have been wanting to do a table with a similar Edge treatment as you did, what kind of things did you have to do to ensure it doesn't push apart the joints with expansion and contraction? I've been struggling with that and I'm not sure how to overcome it. Any insight you can give to that would be much appreciated.
