When we went to select the wood that I wanted for my table we looked at a lot of woods that dad had in the shop. I was looking for something that I’d like in my room. I selected ”Yellow Birch”. It was a nice pink color but it had lots of grain visible. And there was some color variations in the plank.

We were trying to keep to dad’s sub series of ”The uniqueness of Woods”. We wanted all woods with a clear finish and no stains. This table allowed me to do that. The pegs are African Blackwood.

Other projects in this series are Karson's Twins Holly and Popular, Dave's Cherry Table, and Karson’s Goncalo Alves The final one is my sister Karries Curly Beech

The cutouts were made with the jig shown in dad’s blog

Great picture of the breadboarding and table. You should be proud and you’ve got a great teacher to learn from. Pass on the knowledge, Karson!
