This is Beth’s (my wife) first project. She has been helping and learning with me in the shop. She wanted to make a Curly Maple table. I helped her with the plan and design. She liked the lathe and wanted to try it. We made a template design for the legs. Cut the 2 1/2” Curly Maple blocks. Then I was told to go in the house. I made her uneasy watching. She turned the legs without a problem. I was very impressed. I helped her with router and table saw setup. Then was told to go in the house. She made slide dovetails to assemble to table box, band saw cut the design and routered the beads. She dug throu my hardware drawer and found the brass crow’s feet for the legs. She even dovetail cut the drawers with the Leigh jig. Stained and Oil finished the project. The back splash has yet to be mounted, she doesn’t know if she wants it to stay on. Now I’m able to return to my shop. She even cleaned the shop, witch was a hugh untaking. So now we are designing a new crib/bed for her younger sister. I just finished a Crib/Bedroom set for my Daughter, who is having my first Grand Son. will post in a few days. My days in the shop will never be the same again, I have a new partner in crime.
