Removing approximately 200 pounds of solid African Mahogany was pain staking. Setting up a plastic tent and wearing enough face and body gear to cure Ebola. lol When starting out it took four men to move the base and now two men can move this coffee table base.
One of the dumb things that I did was take off the guard to one of my grinders so that I could get into the concave section of the lower legs. Then I hit a snag and the grinder pulled me in and grounded up a couple of my fingers, man did that hurt. I’ll never do that again. They are starting to heal up nicely, and I’ll be back to playing my guitars in about another week or so.
This table base was a ton of work but man was it fun. Next I’ll be starting on the top with the marquetry scene of trees and a lake with reflection in the water. Thank you, LJ’s
