hey everyone! ever have a boring day where there’s nothing to do? well that was my Saturday and this laminated pine table top is what i made that day. just to clear things up the picture of the rough board is what the board for the table top looked like but the original board was 10 inches wide and a little longer. so i turned that 36 inch long 2×10 grayish tinted board into this table top. the best thing is that i made it with just a couple of hand held power tools a homemade circle drawing and homemade router circle cutting jig. i personally think that it came out pretty good for an old grayish tinted board.

One of the things that has always drawn me to woodworking, was what one can make
of some seemingly ‘ugly’ or limited amounts of wood.

The 2×4 competition is proof of some pretty awesome stuff.

Not too shabby. Circles are one of those things that I don’t do much … they tend to be not quite round.

Well done as well. Working in the shop sure beats sitting in front of an XBOX any day.

Thanks for sharing.
