So I’m new to this website….well I’ve been looking though the projects for some time but this will be my first post. I am also new to woodworking compared to some of the experienced folks on here. I started my woodworking journey about a year ago by buying a 150 year old house in need of some tough love. Tight on money for decor I convinced my wife I could make things better than the junk overpriced at the local big box stores. Since then I’ve been addicted….as you can all attest to.
Anyway this project started from a trip to a local mill in downtown cleveland who get local timber cut down or removed by the city. instead of taking it all to the dump he gets it and mills it rough for local woodworkers and contractors. I got the pile in the last picture for 50 bucks. Awesome I know. But it did have lots of inclusions and need a lot of work.
this table was custom made to fit into a nook in our house. It uses wood runners and a single peice of maple as the drawer fronts. I learned a lot building it. First table with mortise and tenon for me!
