My Mini Table

Using most of the remaining willow that I had cut, I decided to put together a mini table.

Following some discussion earlier here at LJ I thought it would be fun to put it to use, as suggested.

Yes, it is currently in our bathroom and I thought I would display it, showing how VERY useful it is!! :)

I’m sorry but you are learning very, very slowly.

Where did you learn woodworking?

How many times they have to tell you that you should plane the wood from all 4 sides?!

And, you are repeating it again and again…

I love it, it’s so “to bring the nature into the house”

Alright a functional table. For necessary items. maybe you need to put a box on the shelf and you could drill a home to match the hole on the roll – in the front so you could pull it out.

Just pulling your leg.. I know you already have one like that. :>)

Those rolls are for when “The Wind in the Willows” gets a little gutsy er gusty

Debbie’s woodworking is still a little rough around the edges.

She’s not wasting the wood so she’s a green woodworker.

With that supply of paper there must be many functional woodworkers around her house.

I don’t care what the bird says, I think it’s a great job. Keep it up Debbie, you go girl!

Deb, don’t let these guys give you any, ahem, crap (oh my, my). Just keep at it.

And what is it with Karson and holes for goodness sake? I got a line for that one too but out of respect for Karson I’ll keep it to myself. ;-)

Oh, I see we are getting low on Willow. Whatcha gonna start trying next?

Mike, it was going to have aprons but I had ran out of “big” pieces of willow so it had to stay at this stage.
I have more willow cut now but the table is remaining “as is”.

Lee, hahahah@ “wind in the willows”—that’s a good one!!. One thing you don’t want to run out of is toilet paper and we had just gotten a fresh supply so I thought I’d see how much the little table could hold. -

Thanks everyone for the feedback. This was fun to post.

That’s nice, Debbie. I know this one is not a birdhouse at least, but since you need that much TP on hand, I’m sending you a gift certificate forsome Immodium. :-)

hahaha :)

umm… we get lots of company?? :)

I’m glad that it doesn’t look like a birdhouse this time—not that I have anything against birdhouses—-

I’ll be looking for that gift certificate in the mail :D

With Obi’s doweling tool and a couple of notches cut in the sides you could actually put that roll in a more functional position.

Debbie – very nice! You are “tolerating the guys” with wonderful grace! You sure made good use of that willow. I like the live edge. Keep up the good work and project postings.
