« Part 5: Another Wee Bit of a Peek !! Part 6 of Thorsen Table Challenge series Part 7: Going for the Top !! Also pegging joints info. »

My Walnut board was 6 3/4” wide, but it was dished a little, so I ripped it in half, & joined it in 4 sections for the top, I also glued some Ash to the edges.

The Top clamped up.

Now I have to go out, & start with the breadboard ends for the Tabletop.

This is one of the Shelves, using my new Irwin Clamps

Don, Thanks.
Wish I knew what WIP means.
Dennis , As long as you’re ahead of me now, I guess I’ll play Turtle for awhile.

Did someone say turtle? Were you talking to me? I haven’t worked on my table since the my last posting of pictures. I’m not sure that I will make it now. Dick, I like the way you improvised by instead of getting another board for that cupped one.

Nice looking top and shelf, Dick. Remember, don’t do what I did on the breadboards, o.k.? I look forward to your next posting.

I thought the breadboard was to cover the end grain

Thanks All.
Os, I have a feeling it’s going to be alright. I’ve built a lot of things before I ever heard of expansion. the stuff has survived.
Fred, Thanks for WIP, trying to learn.
Obi, That’s in the rest of the story

Try and figure this one out. “WYSIWYG” LOL ;)

Very Nice Dick. Walnut and Ash. A good combination.

Whats a breadboard? Do you cut bread on it. If it is why is it so thin? GO get em Dick. I’m way behind. Got sidetracked making my grandson a little box for whatever and mounted a nice set of deer horns for my nephew. I got to post that, it’s pretty neat. Made it from a slab of oak. His wife won’t let him hang a carcass in the house though. Man those are some big clamps. I have Irwin clamps, but nothing that size. jockmike

Thanks Mike
We buy our bread pre-sliced now. Whats a knife ? LOL
Those are new heavy duty clamps. 500 lbs. one hand, 950 lbs. two hands. Lotsa power.
