« Part 7: Still Upside Down Part 8 of Current Project series Part 9: Staining the Table »

Yesterday I cut and applied the molding that covers the edges of the plywood. The molding is of a different wood (pine) and I think the contrast between the main parts and the edges when I stain it will look better than everything being just one shade. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

So today I sanded the legs, the side braces and started sanding the top. The top looks great, so I’m pretty ecstatic about the whole project now. I may yet get to start staining the legs tonight.

Looking pretty good Dave, especially when it’s right side up.

I only hope I never hear the words: Can you make a table for me? (I’d do it for my daughter, but never for pay. ) I’m putting way too many hours into this while carrying tools in and out, thinking things through, changing my mind, etc.

”I only hope I never hear the words: Can you make a table for me?”
Oh, Dave. I think the only way to avoid hearing those words is to NOT build the first one! Or build the first one badly! All you can hope for now is to never hear the words “Yes, I can do that.” come out of your own mouth!
