I have a love for building table, I don’t know why…but I am drawn to their beauty. I decided to build a kitchen table that can be used for the obvious (to eat at), as well….extra counter space, sewing table, or any other reason that would require a large space that I could stand at.
I fell in love the first time my chisel glided across the Walnut. I cut the excess off the legs with a band saw, then the rest was done using hand tools. Hands-down, the spokeshave I got for my birthday last year was an amazing tool that kept me sane! The top was done with pieces of Honey Locust, the keys with leftover Canary Wood, and accented with Walnut.
I had a great time creating this piece and am now looking forward to building some benches to compliment it. Although…I am loving the stools!
