« Part 2: My Legs Are Bothering Me Part 3 of Table Challenge series Part 4: Shapely Legs »

Martin has asked for blogs re: the big table challenge and I figured that since I am tracking the process of this “creation” I might as well follow the journey with some photos.

I re-read the rules to see if I was breaking any rules by posting the progress but I didn’t see anything that indicated that this was a “no-no” .. so here is the progress!

Photo 1: The Beginning
The Beginning
The table will be mostly willow of course (Hey, Chip – here’s my addiction of choice).
Rick and I “handpicked” a log from our firewood (translation: we went out in the cold weather and grabbed a log that looked like it would fit on the little ripper and ran back inside where it was warm).

Photo 2: First Cut
Little Ripper
Rick then ran the log through the little ripper to give me some pieces of board to work with.

Photo 3: Table Top
Table Top
I glued three pieces of board together to form the main part of the table top and then glued to pieces of end cuts to the sides, in order to 1) make it look like the Thorsen Table and 2) to give it that rustic look that I want to achieve.

Photo 4: Aprons
Aprons
(that’s what they are called, right?) I used the rough cut ends again for the aprons, keeping it to that rustic look.

I’m now waiting to figure out how to do the legs so I can put the top together….

Yeah, I don’t have “permission” either :(

I guess I’ll just describe my table rather than post pictures too ;P

it DOES NOT WORK DEBBIE. That’s the problem with loading things to your space.
That’s why I love my website… I know that everyone can look at it.:P

Scottie,
I already did that. I cut 8 sticks and then I cut four more sticks and then I cut two more sticks.
Today I sanded 6 sticks and put oil on them.

I looked thru the “Source” and the address isn’t posting correctly.
So let me try this and see if it works:
