Solid looking table.

It always worries me to have them finish it.

@Monte – Yeah Im always a little hesitant about someone else finishing my work. In this case she is going to try and match it to some “fruitwood” cabinets. I bid high on finishing as matching pine to anything is a nightmare. I hope it works out for her. The table is going to be used in conjunction with 2 others for cooking classes. The height is so it can be used with bar stools.

JSB, did you use any glue or just screws?

@Tony – I used glue in a few locations where I knew the joint would never be removed. The spacers are glued and tacked and the 2×4 ladder boards are glued and screwed. Everywhere else is held by screws. The whole assembly is a tank. I do not believe any more glue is needed than what I used.

Nice table, but is that stuff dry?

It is not kiln dried lumber. None of my projects are. I have been using construction grade #2 or #4 lumber for all of my woodworking projects. I have had no problems out of any of them.

Nice neat work – very clean!

I assume that you did not glue the top end caps to the long surface boards; very interesting way (pocket screws) of allowing cross grain expansion/contraction without being bound tight by the end cap.

Hope her finish does justice to your craftsmanship.

kudos – Barry
