How long did it take?
Do you watch Dave Stanton you tube channel? If not you would probably enjoy it. Also check out Ron Paul’s if you have't already.
There is such a wealth of woodworking videos out there. I watch Youtubefar more than TV.
One sure could make the variation of tops that have sprung up since the MFT system became well known. The MFT/3 top has a 7 x 11 hole arrangement while the one I just made is a 5 x 11 with some extra holes.
The actual cutting goes pretty fast. Once the file is placed you just go from hole to hole and hit the green button, it helix cuts it and comes back up, then move to the next hole. I didn't time it and I was multitasking so while most of it was done this afternoon so was a few other things.
Yes I have a few people I follow on youtube. And of the ones I follow there are maybe 5 or 6 that I watch the most. One sure could spend a lot of time but I have a lot of projects and other interests so I have to limit my watching and save that for down time.
