Before I could turn this post/column….Moved a couple stands around, moved a sheet of plywood elsewhere. Found a bench of some sort, removed all the junk ( well, almost all) that was piled up…...floor now has a footpath..
And ..lookee what I find..
I also found some tools for it..
So, got that chore out of the way. I got the blank out of all them clamps. Bandsaw to trim the neds a bit
It is in the vise, until I could find out where the center is. Once found on each end, I could drive this home
Called a drive spur? Mounted the blank on the lathe….
Hmm, might turn the lathe on, and try some of the chisels out..
This will get sized down a bit. This is where the legs will be. Kept going down the line
The other end will have a collar and a tenon, to help attach the top. Came back to the leg area, and carved a bit more off..
then back to the top, again…
Gave things a rough sanding, to see where I as at. Motor on the lathe was getting a bit too warm. Well, I can let that cool down for a while. I did get the top’s panel out of it’s clamps..
Need to run the scrub planes all over this, then rig out a Norm Abram circle cutter for my bandsaw. Top needs to be a circle, 18” in diameter. Right now, the “pivot point” would be about 3” off the edge of the table.
Hmm…I do have that sheet of plywood sitting off in the corner…..
