Karson,
Dennis said it’s too tall, so I might have to take a saw to it. LOL

Dennis gets the award for the driest humor of the whole group.

It’s going to be 28” tall when it’s done.

Well, DIck, I agree with Dennis… too tall. And the fine print says that you have to use a rusted hand saw or a butter knife for alterations. How’s that for funny?

I guess I could carve it to the proper size. I guess I better sharpen my carving tools.

I forgot to mention that the Walnut is some more of what’s left my beautiful railroad tie wood supply.

Dick, what are your dimensions exactly, could you write those down for me. Talk about laying in the weeds, all I got is one finish on mine left to go. I don’t know what the guy is going to charge me. hope it ain’t too much. Man Obi you were a little tuff on the ole jockster the other day were’nt you. I was just kidding dude. Lighten up or I might have a relapse and end up back in the looney bin. jockmike

Hey Dick, Looks great. I made 2 at the dimensions in the plans and the first thing my wife asked me is, “Why did you make them so short?!” Maybe yours will be just what she is looking for. Interested in a swap? Tables, that is! :-)
