This is a little table i made just for fun. I drilled a hole for the legs and chopped the rest out with a chisels.

So with one japanese chisels i chopped through 8 inches of solid oak without sharpening!

Now i am very happy with my japanese chisels :D i have never used a chisels that much without sharpening but there was noo need for it. My only problem now is that i got no room for the table :D

Thanks for looking :)

A nice stable table.

Sounds as if the chisels were good.

Great looking table. I like the rustic look and the through tennons. I love when people leave knots on the wood. It adds chahracter. I fill mine with epoxy, then sand to give it a smmot feel. Well done.

Sweet! fantastic accuracy in the square holes!
I also love my Japanese chisels. I bought them when I was in Japan.
Got them from a small family owned company that had made chisels in their
family for 300 years :-)

Very nice job on the table. I’m partial to the rustic look also (got that from my mother) and the leg tenons worked great.
