A splinter

I get a fair number of nicks and scratches on my hands when I’m working in the shop (not from accidents, just from being a bit rough as I handle wood and saw blades and whatnot). A few weeks ago, I sliced my thumb on a sharp edge while sanding the Aster sofa frame. As it turns out, I actually took a piece of wood with me that’s been residing in my thumb ever since. This last weekend, I was looking at the wound, and gave my thumb a squeeze, and a whole quarter inch of splinter slid right out:

Nice.

Mercury table bases glued

In order to minimize waste, the base of mercury table is laminated from three pieces. The first image below shows the layout drawn on two 5 1/2 inch boards (I’m building two tables). They were cut on the bandsaw, and then given a 3/4 roundover on the corners using a router. Now they’re glued up with a third spacer piece in the middle.
