First of all…that’s a staged photo. :)
My wife Julia wanted a new dining room and kitchen table built. I’m done with those two projects, and am now working on 10 of Kevin Rodel’s Side Chairs. (4 will eventually go around this table.)
This table has 5 fairly wide pine boards implemented into the table top. These five very tight-grained boards used to be 2 by 10 floor joists in the old porch that was part of our house (before our renovation) that my dad built in 1948. So a part of my dad is in this table.
The 5 pieces of pine are surrounded by solid cherry. I glued the entire top together as one solid piece with bread board ends knowing full well of the possible outcome. And yes…I do have a couple very small splits. But we like them. :)
The legs are made up of laminated solid cherry.
As you can see, I once again had no plans for this table and my kitchen table. Just very crude (humorous) drawings.
