First step is obvious I guess :)
As I mentioned this design is meant to be cut in 8mm plywood with a 1/16 inch bit. Otherwise the joints might not line up and the bit won’t be able to access the “undercuts” or “dogbone” areas.
Carving time is around 45 min so take your ear plugs, sit back, and relax.
In the attached video I show all the process from set-up to finishing. Take a look if you wish! :)
These finger joints are not so straight forward, as the pieces aren’t all square to eachother. So in the design I adjusted the finger sizes so the interlocking edges of the diferent pieces would form the main edges of the table from top to bottom. Not sure this makes sense, but the thing is some fingers need indents to interlock with the mating piece.
No big deal, just try to fit a piece, sand a little bit where needed and iterate until it goes in. It’s simpler than it looks and once you’ve done one, the rest are exactly the same :).
