That does explain how you get your work done with all that wood all over the floor. Nailed all the tools to the ceiling. ;)

Nice raised panel mike. Nice figure to the walnut is the wood on the sides hickory or is it pine? It’s gonna look great when you’re done, can’t wait to see it, so hurry up. Hey mike is that a wood jig for making dovetails beside the clock? mike

That looks like a scene from the Mickey Mouse movie Fantasia. Do you have brooms cleaning up your shop while you’re working?

Well, after I got my dowel maker I made several dowels, and a Genuine Mahogany Wand, and I waved it around the room and said “Rediculas” like in the Harry Potter movie, and viola, there you have it.
Mike, Pine is too soft to use for anything except fire wood. I was going to make 4 gun carts and one of them was out of some free pine I got, and now I dont even want to do that. I DID make a pair of night stands out of some birdseye Pine and gave them away.
And Thank you Debbie. This piece may very possibly be my best work to date, and I want it perfect.
Mineral Oil to fill in the pores and bring out the grain, and then several coats of Lacquer.

Nice table. I can’t wait to see it finished and on the floor (if that is where it is supposed to go). Maybe it is a coffee ceiling table? kidding

Mr. “Apron” OBI. Thanks for sharing before it is complete. You have some great detail in that table.
BTW, if Shaquille Oneal was a dinner guest you would not have to lower the table.

“1) The picture is NOT upside down… the camera was when I took it” -Obi
I’m confused, wouldnt this still mean the picture is upside down? I’m not even going to touch on why you’d take a picture with an upside down camera…
now for the most important part, Table looks AMAZING obi, great job

Shawn the table was upside down, so I had to turn the camera upsidedown to show it right side up
