  • Table that's almost done

    This is what I've been working on for the past few months. It's been on again off again since July. I'm a teacher/coach and I had hip surgery in July so the time I've had to spend on this has been sparse. I built it for my wife's friend. All I've really got left is the finishing. The legs will be a distressed gold and the top is getting sprayed with black lacquer.

      Thanks, Hector. The stretchers that run along the sides and ends of the table were cut with a jigsaw. I used chisels, rasps and files to shape that fingers that cross in the middle. Since my time in the shop is so sporadic I don't really have any idea how long it took me to build the table. I need to do a better job of clocking my time.

        Boy do I agree with Hector. The boxed top really shows well with the carved leg assemblies. You should really be proud of that piece.

            I'm impressed! It reminds me of Old World craftsmanship. Great job!
