Well the first coat of oil just went on. (That’d be the first pic.)
This is my first… phew, let’s see if I can enumerate this:
- Project with something other than construction grade pine. (maple 1×2s from the big box.)
- Use of the palm sander
- Use of the miter saw
- attempt at laminating
- Cutting board
- end-grain board

Probably a month ago I saw Chad's end-grain table top and I bugged him for guidelines, etc. So the hat tip for the final inspiration definitely goes to Chad. Thanks o/

So the lamination is rough, as evidenced by the pics taken with my goofy little cell phone camera.
