It has some distinct Nakashima qualities to it. Beautiful work.

John we now know the secret behind your sanding. What a marvelous table. I noticed you put dutchman at the cracks. How do you put dutchmans in?

thank you all.
grizzzzzz there are 7 Dutchmen in the top. 4 on one end (duel cracks) and 3 mid way. and yes it was spectacular walnut with lots of curl and other character. the top is a man killer and very difficult to move so once it is in place it stays there for as long as possible.

I sanded the top initially with 80 grit then marked it with white crayon for my son to sand off. he did a great job and enjoyed the process. He has been making Lego money for quite a while building birdhouses. He draws them up….dad figures out the parts and cuts them and then Jude builds the project. he sold enough to buy a lego train so far. maybe I should post his project too.

Yesss I know my shop is not the most tidy but currently I have 3 projects actively on the go and 2 on the back burner. I gotta do what I gotta do….
