« Part 3: Parts Part 4 of Thorsen Table series Part 5: Another tease »

I am going to cut it very close on this. If I didn’t have to work tomorrow I’d be fine, but I do have to work. I expect it’ll be 9 or 10pm before I get pictures posted – and it’s possible the finish will still be wet!

This project has pushed me and has brought out the perfectionist in me. I cut the legs twice – because I wasn’t happy with the mortises on the first set. And given the opportunity I might recut a couple of the other parts as well.

I’m going to save the details of the table for when I post the project, but thought I’d give you a small taste of what’s to come.

This is the top. I used gel stain to even out the walnut. The blue is tape masking off the cherry breadboards.
