A place for me to display some of the varied projects that come out of my shop, as well as to "talk" about some of my experiences working with wood.

Trestle Table Moving Along

Tabletop with 4 coats of finish, 3-4 to go.
With the chairs well underway, the table is moving along nicely, the top is done and getting its coats of finish upstairs out of the shop dust area.

A few pictures below of the top construction. Table top is 40" x 74" long and 1" thick. Breadboard end is pegged in place with dowel pins made from same wood as tabletop.

Lots of sanding and ready for finish.

Leveling the top

Cutting the breadboard edge with my new Festool Track saw - just like corn through a goose - and no dust!

Drilling mortise in table legs

Rough assembled table base (1 of 2 halves )
