Re: River Table 2
Guy called me up and said he wants wooden keys on the visible side for added effect, I said I've never done it but I'm game... we looked it up and found they're called dovetail joint/butterfly joint or dutchman's key, take your pic. I call them tedious but fun... it took me 2hrs each to cut, shape, and fit them to the walnut. I cut the keys from red oak pallet wood for a nice contrast.
I embellished the split on this piece a bit for looks, and to make sure the resin would flow in nicely.
I sunk all 4 about 1/4" deep making sure to minimize the gaps around the edges and glued them in place. After the glue dried, I knocked them down and hand planed them flush.
