That’s some beautiful wood grain showing through on your table top! The pegging looks, great, too!

Thanks Os,
That’s a great looking railroad tie, isn’t it.
Mike, We must have posted at the same time. I don’t think I’ll have time to make another. I won’t be long, & we’re heading for our cabin. Then mabe I’ll make a table out of some Tag Alder.
I don’t think it’ll fit in you PO Box.

Thanks for looking out for me Debbie.

I’m surprised he did’nt take me up on it. Probably Because Os and you had to tell him how beautiful it really is. It’s hard to fool ole Dick he did’nt just fall of the turnup truck yesterday with me. mike

Nice work, Dick. The top looks fantastic – you are right to be happy with it. I particularly like the way the pegs have turned out.

Got drool all over my keyboard just looking at that beautiful walnut Dick. That is some terrific craftsmanship and a wonderful piece. Can’t wait to see everything come together. Thanks for posting the step-by-step… sure is interesting to watch and very educational.
