It’s been a long time for me to post anything here on lumberjocks. I still look everyday to see the projects, and a lot of them have been incredible works of art. Which is one of the reasons I love being a member of this web site.

This table has pushed me to my limits as far as craftsmanship I am completely exhausted and worn out. I feel like a athlete right now because I’ve been icing me knees and had to get a shot of cortisone to help me get moving again.

Now I’m onto the final finishing steps of the top, which has a grained filled finish. I still think that some of us woodworkers are a little crazy when it comes to our woodworking projects, it becomes a little bit of a obsessive compulsive disorder. lol It’s something to do with the wood and the hands on craftsmanship, maybe? Well, it feels good to be back happy woodworking and thanks for looking.
