If any of you happen to read one of my Forum topics i posted last week…It talked about coming upon a find of wood on my way home one day, A woman was throwing out a queen size bed from made completely of wood… The wood was a poplar which I have very recently found out , is a very difficult wood to finish..
I didnt need a queen size bed, but i couldnt see the wood going to waste so i decided to take it home and build something with it…
Well I took a portion of the wood and decided to build a table. I also decided to use mortise and tenon joinery which is something I have never done..So it was going to be a first…. I decided on through tenons..As you will notice, I have not finished the table yet, Im still in a debate as to how and with what…. The table top was a nice bookmatched birch which I stained… Ultimately there is a 1/8th inch glass panel on the top of the table to protect the wood.. So this is one of my ” From Trash to Treasure” pieces..
