After getting the exact wood that i wanted i started cutting the pieces down. I choose a table from a woodworking book to copy and modify. Im using 2.5×3x13 inch african mahogany legs and will cut the ends to be flush with the 3/4 hondura mahogany. the idea is from a tile top coffee table but instead of tile, i have oak panels i will lay inside and then the tattoo shop owners will draw all over it and then ill cover it with bar top epoxy.
if this post has a few errors its because its hard to type with three huge bandages on my fingers.
You ever have one of those moments when you realize you should have bought something and didnt? well mine was a first aid kit today. I lost my concentration for a split second and before i knew it i had cut deep into my pinky, ring, and middle finger at the tips. To make things worse i had to call a friend over to drive me to walgreens because for one, no first aid kit in the house and two, i drive a scooter and it is my right hand that was cut. I’m fine now and i dont think ill need stitches but it sure was one hell of a wake up call to stop being so comfortable at a table saw.
Also fortunately i wasn’t cutting anything for the customers table, just cutting down some stock to make it more manageable. I promise i will write a more definitive blog once its easier to type
