Can’t … don’t have any pictures yet. Besides I’m still working on the Hickory/Walnut Coffee Table.

Let’s see…. tomorrow I sand the table top, sand the raised panel faces… oil the panels, oil the table again and then take it up North to do the finish and attach the top, I should be finished sometime next week, and then I’ll post them.

And then I can get started on the … Coffee Cart, the 3 Gun Carts and the Medicine Cabinet

I’m glad to hear that you’re busy, but try to squeeze in that table between jobs. After all your the main man, or the originator of this contest.

I believe you are corrrect. I don’t know that I’ve seen a cutoff time like we had in the Winter Contest.

Sounds right. Come on now Obi… a lumberjock should be able to finish a coffee and build a coffee cart, 3 gun carts, a medicine cabinet and a Greene and Greene side table (interpretation) in 64 and 3/4 days…. tops. You’re not getting out of it that easy.
