Martin asked for the progress to be blogged, so I guess I’d better start writing.
step 1: the hardest part, in my opinion, is deciding what the finished project “should” look like. I’m not one for copying so, of course, it has to have a little “Debbie” in the creation.
What will the “Debbie effect” look like? Will it be the old barnboards from my great-grandfather’s farm? Will it be the rough-hewn pine or will it be the newly-found-love willow? And what about the finishing touches: will it be some leatherwork, or perhaps giving a try at the chipcarving? Or perhaps it will have some woodburning done to it, giving it that extra something?
Too many options and not enough skill!!
One thing I know for sure – the final table (or plant stand) will be RUSTIC.
Days remaining to figure it out and to create it: 70
