My wife and I bought a foreclosure about a year ago and are about 75% done with the plans that we set forth in the beginning. The kitchen is completely redone, along with the living room and our expectant baby’s nursery. The bathrooms are in process along with our bedroom.
I’ve sort of taken a break from the home improvement aspect and gotten into a lot more woodworking. I find my hands to be a lot more steady than ever, and my accuracy much improved. So now I am making a kitchen table; my wood of choice for this is poplar – I really like the blonde look (like my wife ;o). So I have just finished clamping the boards for the table top and am ready to move on. I’m still designing the legs that I will turn myself.
This is the biggest undertaking I have ever attempted so wish me luck, because after this my wife wants a china cabinet.
