This was the biggest project so far. All done with only hand tools. Learned a lot about the tools and the wood. Time was no object. (4 month is a long time) A hour here, maybe an afternoon there. The biggest drawback about the size was, that after carcase assembly it was very hard no turn, rotate etc. Had to bug my wife many times to help me. She is a good sport though.

Anybody using hand tools in wood working is my favourite because it shows your skills and patience. You have made a beautiful table. I think the leg part was most difficult. Hope to see many of your craftsmanships in future.
