Well as usual – I made a big mistake. This table was to be 60” long for my daughter in law’s hall. Now how the heck I measured 72” I will never know, but that is the length I built it. Through the whole project – I kept tell the wife something was wrong. Anyhow – its 12” too long and project past the wall by 12”. So now it sits in our front room. sigh.

The second project was a small stereo cabinet to match – the “mistake” table that I made. The wife wanted some type of small table for her stereo.

I wish I could afford better lumber, but, I work with what I can. Someday – I will build something out of a quality wood product. Someday.

That table looks too long! Good to see your work again.

sounds like your subconscious wanted to keep the table for yourself! can’t say that I blame it either, that table came out great.

Hi Larry,

These are both very nice pieces and you didn’t make a mistake. Your daughter’s wall was built 12” too short.

Thanks for the post and the story.

Let he among us, who has never measured a project wrong, cast the first stone.

Have your say...
