The long weekend threw things off a bit but the time away was great. Besides editing videos most of last week, I spent some time in the shop working on the porch swing and I prepped the maple crotch for milling.
Here’s a trestle table (Anna White Design) and a small natural edge/black pipe base table made from mesquite I cut from my ranch and had milled at a local saw mill. The trestle table top is 40″ x 84″ and is 1 3/8″ thick with bread board ends. The small occasional table has a natural edge and both are finished with the same finish you had used on your secretary.
I am legally Blind and had to find something to do with myself to pass the time of day. I got into woodworking about 13 years ago. I stated with simple projects the gradually got better at it and now I make just about anything out of wood.
My biggest project was a Adirondack Guide Boat that is 14\’ and it took me 5.5 months to build.
I made this dining room table to replace the one that my Grandma has had for over 40 years. AS you can see from the picture the old table was a bit warped. It is made out of red oak to try to match the cabinets that she has in the kitchen.
So this is my second furniture build and is a walnut slab coffee table for my parents. I think the table turned out great really like how it looks with the metal legs. I also like how the legs do not over take the overall look which is what i was going for I want your eye to mainly focus on the slab itself.
