well, here it is…

I must be brilliant now!

The table is pretty much finished. Might throw a layer of wax on top of it. We’ll see.

Lots of “oops” and “huhs” and “how did that happens” in it but it’s a table and it’s made by me and it’s a present.. and she will love it.

Can we get some more views, Debbie? I’m struggling with trying to decide what I’m looking at on the table apron. This looks like a great table.

Nice job Debbie. It has the look of a craftsman or mission style, but a more clean modern line.

I think it is just peachy, Debbie. It’s not a hole… It’s umm… a cubby. Yeah, that’s it. A cubby. ;)

Tom, you should fashion a festoolian-dowelmaxish-space-time-continuum-web-slinging solution and send it through the tool share.

a cubby!! perfect description.
Now, when I give it to my daughter I can call it by its proper name.

And… actually…... since I don’t know how to fasten on the top I once again put it on a hinge—just in case something gets pushed to the back of the “cubby” ... she can lift the lid and retrieve it.. yah.. that was the plan. It wasn’t that I didn’t know HOW to attach the top—it was the PLAN !!!

hehe Mot….. so what do you want a close-up of??
(Not that I’m providing close-ups—you will be able to see my attempts at covering up my “oops”)

Great job Debbie,
You keep getting better all the time.
Here’s what you can use to fasten a tabletop. You just have to cut a saw curf on the aprons. You can also make something similar with wood.
Also this kind.

I’ll have to buy some for my “next” table ((shaking my head.. I can’t believe I just said that))

Pretty fancy for someone who’s main goal was to someday build a box…any box.
Good going!
