« Part 2: Welding close to being done, then wood time. Part 3 of Outdoor Dining table series Part 4: Finally doing the woodworking portion on the table. »

It has been a busy cpl weeks. I had to take a trip to Michigan to cheer my Mom up, who was in the hospital. She is home & doing much better! Thx to my friends on here for the kind words & thoughts.

I got the base back from Powder Coating and it matches the chairs perfectly. I just finished 10 cutting boards for a customer, along with 15 drawers for a nice woman that lost her husband. I volunteered to finish the cabinet for her free.

I will be starting the top that will surround the granite with Black Walnut. The granite is left over from our Outdoor Kitchen Blondie and Built. I loved learning to weld but now I’m ready to make some saw dust!!!

As always, Thx for looking and all comments welcome.

I agree, Ken, welding can be quite fun to do.

Nice work.

I know another jock looking for a source to powder coat some parts, can you recommend someplace to send parts?
