    You are always fun to watch. This table is beautiful. I couldn’t explain to my husband the difference in cutting that miter for a waterfall & grain match versus any other. The subject came up because a few magazine videos we watched, didn’t really show the cut, even though, they were supposed to be "about" waterfall miters. SO those usual video resourced were no help. As, soon as this video began, I KNEW you would explain it, and that you would explain exactly the way I was trying to You did not let me down. Thanks!
    I have to add; that 2 years after you posted this, Stumpy Nubs tackles that spline w/ a 3 minute video, a flick of his wrist, some blue collar magic & NO JIG!
    The YT algorithm, in it’s wisdom, showed me both videos side by side in my feed 3 days after his video posted( 2 years after yours).
    Having watched his solution first; I kinda wanted to hop in my time machine & visit your shop when you began designing the jig.. But, the contrast in game plans definitely upped the entertainment factor, for me. And now i am sure to remember both methods when I need them.
    If you happen to see this comment on an 2 years old video, check out his solution in his video titled ‘A clever technique for splined-bevel joints for mitered boxes’. https://youtu.be/_EgMRojTl5k
    It’s witchcraft I tell ya! Thanks again for the detailed help with the grain matching miter! ๐Ÿ”จLisaโ™ฟ

    Hi 3X3 =6 or does it that is the question, enjoyed watching your territorial on making a waterfall side table,
    I was expecting resin sidetable beer mate as there is a lot of this going on at the moment.
    You were saying about the joints on your mitres using a domino machine made by festool, which is obviously very expensive but is a very good machine, there is a few other ways of making a joint you can actually use a router with a fence on it, or you can use a machine that is made by Maffel Duo DD40 not sure if I have spelt it right as my pigeon that Iโ€™m using is not given me precise spelling details but this machine does wood dowel and you can sit it at A angle. And I think it is cheaper than a festool machine,
    Great little project keep up the good work itโ€™s a pity youโ€™re are so far away as I think you might be impressed with some of my machinery and tools that Iโ€™ve got that I used to use when I was working Iโ€™m now retired living in France watching you young boys and girls go through the process of creation of pieces of art.
    Keep up the good work and you do actually learn by mistakes.
    Phil from the moulin France

    Beautiful table

  4. Ballas George on November 29, 2022 at 5:19 am

    Note to self: Get a ton of clamps.

  5. Jacob Wortley on November 29, 2022 at 5:20 am

    Youโ€™re so good! Not just at the actually wood work but the explaining as well. I wish I had all the gear, I really want to follow along, Bob Ross style!

  6. Chris Walgenbach on November 29, 2022 at 5:20 am

    Love the waterfall look. Excellent work!

  7. John Francis on November 29, 2022 at 5:22 am

    Very nice, thanks

  8. dee dee ryen on November 29, 2022 at 5:23 am

    You are very patient and a true artist. Your videos are the best I have seen (and heard). Clear, concise and educational. I love when you also provide tips or show your mistakes!

  9. Enzo DP on November 29, 2022 at 5:24 am

    Love your work Tamar. I am fascinated by the hack you did with table saw sled for cutting mitres. I copied your idea and created a problem. The fillet between the straight saw cut and the mitre saw cut is loose and flimsy, and rattles and scrapes on the blade during use. How did you overcome this problem? I also have a Dewalt table saw but later model. Thanks in advance.

  10. from the ash on November 29, 2022 at 5:26 am

    Believe me i loved you from the first day i saw you and i am still loving you everytime i watch your videos ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ god bless you tamar ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’–

  11. Zoe Summers on November 29, 2022 at 5:28 am

    Genius. Enough knowledge and explanations that I feel like I could have done the job too. All your reasonings were very helpful.

  12. rdeed darger on November 29, 2022 at 5:29 am

    fast forward is irritating ……………………I wanted to learn something…………………great design but disappointed.

  13. Christopher Reyes on November 29, 2022 at 5:29 am

    What is the measurement of this board please

  14. Cullen Bohannon on November 29, 2022 at 5:31 am

    Beautiful piece, I love it
    That’s alot of clamps ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

  15. Gary atch on November 29, 2022 at 5:31 am

    Your work is excellent. Your verbal instructions are spot on. Not to mention how interesting you make it. Thank you for not inserting silly jokes in middle of your builds. Well done.

  16. Brandon Westfall on November 29, 2022 at 5:31 am

    Such a clean design.

    It may be made out of a single board but it clearly took some work to do the design correctly.

  17. Jarodโ€™s Own on November 29, 2022 at 5:32 am

    Changers?? Yeah Unsub! J/K!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the little table, it would come in very handy. You did an awesome job on those waterfalls and the hidden spline was a great idea! i’ll be copying that one ๐Ÿ™‚ Definitely going to have to get me some Canary wood too! That stuff is beautiful!

  18. Troy Kinnison on November 29, 2022 at 5:35 am

    New drinking game!!!
    Take a SHOT!!!
    EVERY time xxx she says

    Trust me go back an just try it with water!!

  19. Larry Bloom on November 29, 2022 at 5:35 am

    Probably too late to get a reply, but: Given the work by Patrick Sullivan about the extraordinary strength of glued end grain joints, do you still think one would need to spline the miter cut?

  20. Alex M on November 29, 2022 at 5:37 am

    What a beautiful piece! Congrats!

    *Hello there, I have requested your DVDs, for simpler and quicker approach to manufacture a shed **Allmy.Tips** I trust the substance are as you guaranteed it will be. Just I’m worried with the substance, it won’t be anything but difficult to settle on a decision from the various plans.*

    Simply Beautiful

  23. David Shaw on November 29, 2022 at 5:39 am

    The term youโ€™re looking for is cleat.

  24. BILL01 on November 29, 2022 at 5:40 am

    Much more easy and quick with Festool’s dominos.

  25. Todd O on November 29, 2022 at 5:41 am

    Omg, your clamps donโ€™t match ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ. Great job.

  26. Dale on November 29, 2022 at 5:41 am

    Could have went slower. Great job… Not that I couldn’t follow.

  27. Tom Holder on November 29, 2022 at 5:41 am

    ๐Ÿ˜ amazing! How I wish I had your skills and workshop!

  28. John Grey on November 29, 2022 at 5:42 am

    Another awesome project !!! Tip… I build large wood beams and have to clamp miters all the time so what I created was a 45 clamp block. Just use one of the cutoffs (45) and screw a flat piece to the cutoff. Cutoff placed short side of the miter up, cut the flat piece the same width as the long side of the miter and glue and screw them together. you can the just lay them over exposed miters and clamp away.

  29. Julio on November 29, 2022 at 5:42 am

    Clampity clamp clamp ๐Ÿ—œ

  30. Will Espie on November 29, 2022 at 5:43 am

    Hey Tamar, rewatched your video and happy to say just completed a version of yours. Made of 4 pcs of glued up Tassie oak. Really happy with it

  31. Luis Ramirez on November 29, 2022 at 5:45 am


  32. cardboardorigami on November 29, 2022 at 5:48 am

    Looks amazing. I love Canarywood

  33. Joe Surfshaper on November 29, 2022 at 5:48 am

    Why are you sneaky hot?

  34. L B on November 29, 2022 at 5:49 am

    This tutorial just told me I have to buy so many more tools than I current have. Itโ€™s so disappointing when I find a project but only half of the tools

  35. ะะปะตะบัะฐะฝะดั€ ะงัƒะผะฐะบ on November 29, 2022 at 5:51 am


  36. Chris DeMeglio on November 29, 2022 at 5:52 am

    Hi Tamar, I have a router table that is not set up yet, can you use biscuits instead of splines to connect the mitres?

  37. Neil Agrawal on November 29, 2022 at 5:54 am

    The craftsmanship is so impressive. Such clever use of jigs. I’m in awe of this girl’s genius

  38. tchevrier on November 29, 2022 at 5:55 am

    the wood looks awesome.

  39. alfonso Pina on November 29, 2022 at 5:55 am

    oh man, I really like this one. I think my wife would too. Great tutorial and very nice work.

  40. Roger Culver on November 29, 2022 at 5:59 am

    I think you need about 8 more clamps on it. hehe. Great build!

  41. atommachine on November 29, 2022 at 5:59 am

    Poly makes it pop , great job.

  42. Julia Cisneros on November 29, 2022 at 6:00 am

    I watched this whole video… And I don’t own not even one hand tool. Loved it!

  43. Aj Johnson on November 29, 2022 at 6:06 am

    Tamar, I first came across your work with the vaneer LP cabinet (I left the comment about Derek and the Dominoes). I so rarely leave comments on anything like this (I generally think the internet is a sewer), but your work is so inspirational. Keep it up! Can’t say enough how awesome it is to see what you build, and I love the videos. Rock on!

  44. Yusuf Masron on November 29, 2022 at 6:06 am

    I would’ve never thought of how to deal with that smallest middle section of the box, where u have the little gap at the underside of the jig!! Amazing Tamar. I would’ve get on with it, regret later when it doesn’t fit properly, stare at it for hours and say lesson’s learnt, don’t do it next time just to comfort myself. Thanks for the video, love yr tactic when dealing with issues like that.

  45. Katherine Crosbie on November 29, 2022 at 6:10 am

    Your videos are great. Thanks for illustrating all the steps and your thought processes.

  46. Doug Thomson on November 29, 2022 at 6:11 am

    I love what you do, young woman (Iโ€™m older than God). Believe me, over my 50 years of woodworking, nothing beats good old fashioned hand joinery. It takes time, it is fussy, but it is strong and oh so satisfying when one is finished. The spline is a great solution, but your project screams out for secret dovetails. Give them a try some day ๐Ÿ˜Š.

  47. pecosROB on November 29, 2022 at 6:11 am

    a lot of projects seem to benefit from having a planar… what do you suggest to do in lieu of not having one? Is it pretty much a must have in every hobbyist workshop? Seems like the alternative would be to have a level table and router set up but that just seems like it’d take forever…

  48. Jose W Santos on November 29, 2022 at 6:13 am

    Beautifully done! Just amazing!๐Ÿคฉ
