My daughter said she would like a new table for her living room. Always thought of building this one. White oak is what I have in mind but she said she preferred Cherry. Cherry it is!

I do this crazy job assignment. Travel to Cleveland during the week and come home to Michigan on the weekends.

Went to Homestead Hardwoods which is between Cleveland and Toledo. Spent two hours going through 8/4 and 5/4 cherry. Found a wide board of 8/4 and two 5/4 boards that look like from the same log.

I am not going to do that x-grain thing I saw in the article. It should be a fun project.

That will be a nice project. How will you handle the wide side rails? It seems that is a pretty wide cross grain glue joint.

Also, what article is this from?

Thanks

Love these tables/sideboards/servers! Looking forward to your build blog. I would’ve bought some QSWO too and built two at the same time!
