Here is the finished woodworking plan. I could go on and on finding little things to adjust and fine tune, but I am calling it finished…

I am already thinking about my next plan. I am leaning towards one based on a pine bible stand I made for my mom many years ago…

Nice work, Jeff, what software did you use? It seems to me that designing is more difficult than building it!

Thank you. I used SketchUp Pro for the illustrations, MS Publisher for the page layout and text, and both Photoshop and MS Paint for slight editing on just a few images.

I have SketchUp Pro’s LayOut program but have found that MS Publisher provides more capabilities with text and such. I am also beginning to experiment with Adobe products, but just hate the thought of learning another complicated software program. :)

Hey Jeff,

I just had to drop you a note that I’m unbelievably impressed with your masterful blend of “old school” woodworking and your tech. Thank you so much for your generosity of spirit and sharing your efforts so selflessly. I may very well build a version of your apartment table someday. Keep up the good work, it’s appreciated out there…

Thanks for your kind words. “Masterful” is not a compliment I often get, so I appreciate it. If you ever build the table, please shoot me a photo of it. :)
