This is my first project, a much needed table for my wife and I in our apartment. I milled the wood from a cypress tree that was down in my parent’s back yard for who knows how long. My next project will have to be a work bench after much of the work for this table was done sitting on the floor with hand tools, while my dog laid next to me wishing she could help. Some mistakes were made with measurements along the way, but its funny how the mistakes moved me towards a design that I am very pleased with(originally I had planned for the 45 degree angles to be facing in on the table, but I cut the boards too short). My wife was a good sport about the saw dust and hand plane shavings on the floor, and we are now so happy that we wont have to sit on the couch with plates in our lap every meal.
