I was asked if I could build a 12ft table out of Walnut. I jumped at the chance. I ran out and tried to buy some 13 ft walnut boards. It took some time to find these boards but I finally did. I was so excited to find the boards. I said I would take them in the rough. I put them in the back of my truck and drove home. I then realized that I didn’t have enough room in my shop to use any of my power tools and the table would have to be done by hand. Well I survived and here is the final project. By the way it was hard to get the table out those double doors that you see in the picture.
