Wait – that would be ME! I don’t know about all the rest of you, but I take some really crappy photos of my finished work most of the time. Can’t afford a pro, so have to settle for my own pics. Not optimum, but guess it’ll have to do.
This project started out as what was supposed to be a large conference table and wound up being about half the size of the original plan because the guy that’s getting it decided he wanted it in his office instead of in his conference room. It went through several iterations (from ponderosa pine to juniper) and a whole lot of starts, stops, and even some frustration along the way. But it’s done now, and I just have to try to wrap my head around the fact it’s finally done.
The top is a combo of juniper and cottonwood. The jointery involves short 1/2” dowels and glue. I’d sold my 6” jointer/planer awhile back so had to do the joints using a circular saw and my tablesaw. Getting back on that tablesaw was a real challenge what with the thumb still being numb from my fight with it. But it got done, and pretty well if I do say so myself.
Anyway, if you’re interested in following the entire process, I have my own blog (didn’t want to duplicate anything here) you can look at here: http://zhawke.blogspot.com/2014/02/conference-room-table-beginnings.html
Thanks for looking.
