This is my first big project, a 57” x 57” counter height kitchen table. My wonderful wife said that she had found the kitchen table set that she wanted. So off we went to the local furniture store to see it, after the sticker shock had worn off; I told my wife “I can build that”. So after 4 months of planning and courage building, 2 weeks of late nights and pulling out what little hair I had left, the table is finished. The table taught me a lot; it taught my wife that it might not always be cheaper to build it. (New project new tools!!).
Thanks a bunch to John the “wooden wizard” for selling me the planer that made this project possible. John, it worked great!
The wife says standing around the table is fun, but she would like to have chairs. It looks like I will be building the chairs to match next.
