I started a blog on making the legs to this side table I have been building for my wife so here is the finished piece the top needs a final rub out but its finished with shellac something I haven’t done since my schooldays. It’s taken about 3 months on and off because of hospital appointments and holidays etc. but I’ve really enjoyed the new techniques and skills I have taught myself along the way. I hope you like it my wife does and after all it’s for her. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful Trevor. I don’t drop in as often as I once did so I’m very glad I didn’t miss this one.
Very nice workmanship. It’s good to have you back.
