I’ll call this my first table because it was the first to be made after high school (class of ‘07) shop without the shop full of Powermatic machinery. I never thought I’d miss those tools so much until I started this project and realized I had no way to rip down boards and make precise cuts. Fortunately one of my good neighbors has a wood shop and allowed me to cut down the boards. It’s made of red oak and was meant for a plant table that fits “into” a bay window.
