Lots of first for me on this cherry hall table.
- First time doing 4 side tappers on the legs (from 2 inches to 3/4 inches on the bottom)
- First time only using a hand plane to joint the table top together and to straighten the sides
- First time using my new mortise machine
- First time putting a tapper on the bottom of the table top
- First time writing a message in Russian from my daughter in-laws parents for her to read on her birthday.
I still need to learn how to set the date on the camera as it should show 5-12-2018.

I’m not very good at taking pictures and I will up date the pictures showing the hall table in their apartment. Note: pictures have been updated. May 19

table dims are the following: 46×14 x 31 (L,W,H) or 117×36 x 79 cm

I used clear shellac as a sealer and then 4 coats of hand rub tung oil, with sanding in between coats.

Thank you and if I could take better pictures you could see the curly cherry on the apron.

I can see the curly, pretty nice
Did you taper the length of the top as well as the ends ?

to answer your question “yes” the lengths are tapper as well – I used a 15 deg angle. When setting up the jig on the table saw I did not clamp down the base board of the jig – I was on my knees looking at where the blade would come up trying to get the height just right when the base shot out and hit me in the jaw. I fell on my butt from the impact and started to laugh at how stupid I was and glad that I still have my teeth. That was a first time as well for me (will not make that same mistake twice)

It’s a beautiful table and you have done a fine job on it. I’m sure that she was quite pleased with it.

Takes a big man to admit to the world that he enters the stupid zone on occasion, so glad the only thing hurt was your pride.
I really do like the table overall, the tapers on the top and legs kinda make it a delicate (girly) table. She’ll love it for sure – -
