I made this cherry table out of some lumber sawn on my family’s farm for my television and electronics. I was lucky to get enough from what was left to build the top, unfortunately most of it was left out in the weather. I saved the legs from an old table that was being thrown away. This being my first large woodworking project was a valuable learning experience and I most certainly had some unexpected challenges, but thats the best part of this hobby for me .

Nice work! How did you plane the top once it was glued together? Also, what did you use for the top profile?

Well luckily for me I was able to run the top through a friends 48” drum sander and really save myself some time.
As for the top profile I used a 3/8” roman ogee.

Have your say...
