Hello, my name is Jesse. I started building furniture as a hobby about 6 months ago. Last weekend I picked up a lathe and have been having a lot of fun turning stuff around the shop. As a result I ended up with 4 matching legs from a fence post. Of course since I had the 4 legs I couldn’t just stop so I decided to finish the table. I have no plans and no idea what I am going to do with the table when I am done so it it kind of a blind journey.

I am already a couple evenings into it but here is what it looks like so far. The top is just boards I laid on there to give the illusion of a top. That is what I am going to work on next. I will keep posting as I make progress on the table.

Edit: Tonight I spent a little more time in the shop. I got the table top done and had enough wood left over for a bench. Now for the fun part. Sanding.

Welcome aboard, Jesse. It’s pretty cool that those came from a fence post! I have to think that wood must be happier when it looks nice like that, and not stuck in the ground.
